Berth Ownership

Our Concierge services operates in an exclusive and complex environment that differs from Marina by Marina and country by country.

Marina berth investment analysis : Marina berths are generally a long-term lease (without an option to renew), not actually direct ownership. So you may pay a couple of hundred thousand euro's but you don't own the site; the money you pay is simply rent in advance. Not to forget you're also liable for maintenance, body corporate fees and local taxes and government fees.

Our Aim

Berth Concierge Services in its finer form is a unique blend of practical seagoing experience, knowledge of marina operations, financial acumen and sound commercial management. Using this combination we ensure the success of our clients.

  • If you are considering buying, selling or renting a marina berth or moorings, please contact us for impartial service.
  • Advertise your permanent berth through us when it’s empty and earn money when your marina re-lets it..
  • Arranging Dockage Around the World short stays.

Why buy:

  • The Future , the fleet is growing and forecast for long term is 10.000 30M ++ in next 25 years – Super yachts are all the rage after years of rising sales (25% increase). Marinas for parking them are not.

  • Current restrictions on marina capacity in the Med, we can see a logjam on the horizon. – Expect and already experience more and more congestion – nice boat no dock situations. Western Med region is still most popular for cruising.

  • 60% of all Superyachts are based in Med and prices for berths are surging to new highs across the Mediterranean. High demand less space – The problem will continue to increase fast.

  • Investment are common today and attractive with the growth of yacht sales. Especially 30-75M berths will become an issue as only average of 160 berths available in a crowded market. Yacht size 20M ++ is most difficult to get in the west Med and is solid investment especially longer leases but pending location. Location, services, lease length determine risk rewards on ROI.

  • Selection available requires more detail and some berths offer huge opportunities
