What does it cost to own a yacht? "The cost of ownership for a 60-foot, $1 million yacht is going to be about 10% of its value, or $100,000 per year," said Peter Schmidt, Founder of United Yacht Sales.

I heard years ago that pretty much all boats cost 10% of their original price in yearly usage/maintenance/storage

they depreciate yearly to the point, you're loading them with non-chipped vehicles and setting them on fire just to get rid of them

:summer:

you buy them for the risk mitigation, it's possible you won't need the use of one...it's possible

Used to spend about $500 for 16 hour day on a 55' Stryker in the late 90's.

Yikes, I like piroques of every size, the wider the beam & bigger the better... Thats the difference tween me & you, I WOULD use your dough to buy the piro & champagne... you of course would always be welcome on the vessel.... even if its a dugout....

On the top shelf.
Most luxury yachts spend their life moored. If I had stupid rich money I would build a luxury barge. Hire tug boats to move me from one fancy port of call to another.

Insurance, taxation and registration on a barge is dirt cheap.

You don’t have to hire a captain and crew. You can hire locals to do basic maintenance without running afoul of the maritime unions. Hired tug company is responsible for damage in transit.

At the same time a barge enjoys the benefits of the country it is registered in.
