Fractional Yachting in the GTA
The presentation will explain and outline how Fractional Yachting can enhance the yacht user or yacht owner experience, while saving time and money. There are too few people today that really know and understand the features and benefits of Fractional Yachting programs available including the dynamics and benefits of these programs, both from a user and ownership perspective. Many of the programs offer a turn-key solution that tends to appeal to the enthusiast that has a busy schedule, but appreciates the conveniences, flexibility and service associated with a well run and managed program. With more and more people trying to enhance their lifestyle and life experiences, Fractional Yachting represents a fresh take on an age old sport / hobby that has the potential to attract new people into boating industry, or potentially hang onto those looking for a change with more simplicity and flexibility. Much of the information is incorporated into handouts for participants that would serve as a guideline. Who should attend this presentation? Anyone that is thinking about getting into yachting on sailing and motor boats typically 35’ and up. Anyone thinking of purchasing a yacht and offsetting many of the costs using a proven program that represents a more flexible and economic way to enjoy yachting. Fractional Yachting as a business in your area.
