Yachts with a length of 80 feet (24 meters) are classified as superyachts. Superyachts are custom built to owner specifications. If purchasing a used superyacht, you’ll want to budget for refits and renovations to personalize the yacht to your style and needs.
Superyachts can be either sailing yachts or motor yachts. Superyachts are floating mansions with all the amenities the wealthy are accustomed to. Superyachts can be outfitted with all of the toys you wish to have. From speedboats to mini submarines, a superyacht has the size to be configured to store anything you’ll want aboard your yacht.
Amenities on superyachts include swimming pools, saunas, private decks, gyms, movie theatres, helipads, and more. When outfitting a superyacht, budget and imagination are the only limits of what your yacht can accommodate.
A professional staff is required to maintain and operate a superyacht. Expect costs associated with staffing and maintenance to be around 10% of the yacht’s original purchase price. Chartering different types and styles of superyachts can be a good place to start when looking at superyachts for sale.
