Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

Paying for a boat monthly. Has anyone done it? Is it offered as such?
Same as we do with cars?

I was told you can experience the same joy of owning a boat - without all the hassle - by standing in a cold shower ripping up 50 (Insert currency here) notes...

PS For my birthday a few years ago, we hired a boat to motor around Lake Zurich. It was good. After a few hours, we gave it back to the man and went out for dinner. It was gooder!

Because I can. Love boats. Love fishing.

Are you going to tell me that fishing is expensive in Switzerland?

How I understand the forums?
You have problem. You need information. You ask for help.
...You get help.
However, this is not the case all the time.

Preach in your home, to your family! Not here on my thread.

And thank you for your help?

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

A quick google search for “Jachtfinanzierung Schweiz” showed some hits... so yes, there are offers. I haven’t done it and have no recommendations... but I would expect it to be significantly more expensive than for cars: if you don’t pay your bill does the car itself work as the security. Selling a car in CH can be done much faster and cheaper than a yacht.

What sort of size and price range are we talking about?

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

I am in the 6th year of boat ownership in Malta, boat was second hand, however each year you use it less. Cheaper to rent by the day, scrapping will be cheaper than selling as the market is non existent

The word Boat is an acronym for: "Break Out Another Thousand!"

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

I know that boat sharing is also a thing in Switzerland. I don't know the details, but that seems a really good way for all the sharers to get the most out of their investment.

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

If you google

boat sharing schweiz

you get a lot of hits

I am a member of Meggen Sailing club and get out on a 25ft Platu, fantastic scenery, but the lake of lucerne has very fickle winds.

You will need a certificate to hire a yacht (Segelschein) or motorboat above 7H.P (Motor boat license). For a dinghy or a windsurfer, no license is required.

Buying your own: there is a problem even getting a mooring place before you empty your wallet to pay for it.

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

First of all, big thank you to all that spend their time to reply to me with useful information. I really appreciate it. I got in touch with some boat leasing companies. The idea is to have a boat, pay for it monthly and kind of of spontaneously pay for it without noticing. Off course, will wait to hear the terms and conditions of the leasing company.

Second: Honestly. I'm tired of the unrelated comments I'm getting well off the subject, totally non needed comments.

I know this is a public space and everyone can comment whatever he / she wants, but all these unnecessary comments are creating me a repulsion towards the forum.

Chill. Almost all of us have hobbies that cost money. Boat. Fast car. Various collections. Make up. Expensive clothing, bags etc. Stop judging. If you can help, help - if not carry on. You don't have to reply.

Yes, I get it. Some folks are miserable. They have millions in their bank, but when you buy a 40k boat they are miserable because you are happy.

They will die with millions in their bank, nothing left to family and friends, but 40k is a waste of money.

Not everything in life is an investment (money, money, money)
We are consumables - We're All Going to Die Soon and There's No Sequel

MOD: This thread can be closed. Thank you.

Re: Boat leasing - has anyone done it?

I would be curious to find out the results of your enquiries. Have you looked into where you would moor the boat and getting a license?
