In addition, she features high-quality equipment such as stabilisers to ensure comfort at sea, plus a high-speed jet tender for watersports and trips ashore to the beach.Launched in 2007, and superbly maintained, Elegance 80 is presented in mint condition for the yacht share and co-ownership experience.

Operational costs are estimated at 39,900 EUR per year for one-quarter owners, and 55,000 for one-third owners.One-quarter owners of Elegance 80 will enjoy six weeks of usage per year, limited to two weeks per season. Those participating in the premier one-third ownership model will have usage rights of nine weeks, and can even make an income from the yacht’s vacation club members – when the yacht is not booked by one of the co-owners – which can net approximately 15,000 – 45,000 EUR per year.Vacation Club Membership from €34,900For those wishing to participate in a yacht sharing club without buying into the yacht ownership model, SmartYacht also offers a Vacation Membership Club, with three years luxury yachting membership starting from €34,900, which will provide up to six weeks a year of usage across the global fleet.Additional operating costs only apply when you use the yacht, which equate to around 5,990-8,990 EUR per week. This is around one quarter of the costs of a traditional charter, thereby overwhelmingly reducing the cost of the yacht charter experience. Vacation club membership also provides a welcome ‘ownership’ feel, as the yacht’s crew ensure the yacht is set up and stocked to your liking, and tailor trips to your preferences each time you return.There’s also an elite membership tier on offer, the 100 Top World Membership Club, which offers increased access to the fleet, concierge services and to some of the most exclusive events in the world.Yacht Share Elegance 80 Offers Cost-Effectiveness and FlexibilityNo one likes wasting money on running a yacht they don’t have enough time to enjoy.
