Floating Life Charter&Brokerage – after the successful launches of Yacht Plus superyacht fractional ownership program in 2009, today announces the introduction of the most astute and financially sensible way of living the superyacht: a new fractional ownership program for M/Y Inspiration B a Custom Line 97.

Floating Life Charter&Brokerage provides this “third way” to experience the joys of owning a superyacht, by taking the hassle and costs out of yacht ownership and adding the service of Floating Life Owners; a powerful new equation in luxury yachting.

The concept of fractional ownership is becoming acknowledged as the logical and more astute way of owning high-end luxury products – be it yachts, property, planes, cars etc. This 2015 new fractional ownership offer is based on the relevant achievements that Floating Life had from the launches of Ocean Emerald (2009), Ocean Pearl (2010) and Ocean Sapphire (2011), the management and the chartering of the threes 41m superyacht Foster+Partner’s design.

Nothing compares to the sense of sovereignty from owning a private luxury yacht. But very soon the yacht will take control of owners’ life. Maintenance worries plague year-round. Costs easily spin out of control. Crew is hired full-time even when most owners only use their yachts for a few weeks per year. Yacht charter does not satisfy either.

One of the many benefits of fractional ownership is that it allows owners to enjoy a luxurious and prestigious lifestyle at a fraction of the cost of sole ownership while freeing up capital for other forms of asset allocation that would otherwise be invested as a sole owner.

Service – Enjoy Consistent Service. Inspiration B has a keen, reliable and fully trained crew, including Captain, first officer, chief stewardess, chef de cuisine, and hostess (the first three members are hired; the remaining crew is seasonal though we work to guarantee the same team of professionals). In addition, Floating Life Concierge provides for all necessary bookings on your behalf.
