When considering the purchase of a sailing yacht, there are several questions you should ask yourself to help you choose the model that perfectly suits your needs.

  • What exactly do you want to get from your sailing experience?
  • Are you looking for a boat that’s easy to handle for leisurely trips, or would you prefer performance for sporty adventures at sea?
  • How many people do you usually have on board?
  • Are you planning to put your boat in charter management, or are you buying one purely for personal use?
  • How often will you sail and what sort of distances do you plan to cover?

Finally, think about your home port and the space available in the harbour, as this could also influence the ideal length of your sailing boat.

By answering these questions, you’ll be able to refine your selection criteria and choose the yacht that perfectly matches your expectations and the way in which you sail.

To help you find the range that best suits your needs, our network of dealers  is there to guide you in your choice and offer you personalised support throughout the purchase of your luxury sailing yacht.
