As you take the first steps toward your dream of yacht ownership, the process can be overwhelming and confusing. A quick online search for Fountaine Pajot and Dufour models brings up scores of answers. This preliminary research can lead to more questions.
Pricing of a yacht can vary significantly on the same model and year based on several factors, including current rates, delivery timelines, commis sioning, customization, sales tax, and more. Regarding publishing prices online, there are no enforced standards or consistency. Commonly the following situations can cause increases in the list price:
- Currency – Differences in pricing, whether euros or dollars, and frequently changing can cause the listed pricing to become outdated.
- Delivery – Additional services such as transporting your yacht from the factory to the marina, rigging, testing, and delivering to a nearby port can cause price increases.
- Customization – Customizing your yacht or having after-market equipment installed and tested also leads to increased pricing.
- Taxes – Duty, sales taxes, finance charges, documentation, and other necessary support issues can lead to additional costs.
All extra costs should be accounted for in a realistic package. Line-item pricing is crucial to understanding the total price per square foot and the price per square foot of actual living area and storage space. Speaking to a trusted dealer is the best route to answer any questions that might arise during your research.
