Be awestruck at the Doric temple of Aphaia, dating all the way back to 500 BC yet still standing proudly today.

Fractional Ownership; Yacht Dreamers can Finally Become Believers

Written by Gillon Hunter on Friday, 21 June 2013. Posted in Yacht Company News

For those who have ever wanted to board their very own yacht but thought the price tags were too high

yacht 2A life long dream for so many is to be able to board their very own yacht, cruise out to the finest, most luxurious destinations in the world, accompanied by those closest to them. This can be seen as aspirational, the defining mark of somebody that has ‘made it’; sipping champagne, lounging in the warm summer rays on the top deck in the middle of the ocean. The stumbling block often comes in the form of the big price tags that these yachts demand.

This no longer has to be an unattainable dream, on account of Absolute World’s fractional yacht ownership scheme. Put in place for those who may not have the massive outlay required to purchase one of these deluxe vessels outright, but wants to indulge in its many benefits. Known by the rich and famous as the perfect recreational pastime, all that is left to do is imagine yourself gently cruising along, asking the captain to stop off in order to savour and immerse yourself in the local culture.
