Performance Program

Owner benefits

As a Dream Yacht Sales Performance Program yacht owner, you receive these benefits:

Sailing time

You enjoy unlimited sailing each year on your yacht only. Owner benefits from subsidized rates on the DYC fleet from other worldwide locations, up to 2 weeks per year.

Highest yield monthly revenue

This is the highest yielding program financially. The net-income split is 65% to the owner and 35% to Dream Yacht Charter.

Operating expenses

Owners are responsible for all costs, including the yacht mortgage payments. When evaluating the net-income split, more attention should be paid to the actual bottom-line figures. Although comparable programs may appear to offer better splits (for example, an 80%-20% split), they most often yield fewer net dollars for owners than does the Dream Yacht Sales model because of loaded costs.

Professional maintenance

Your yacht will be maintained to the most rigorous industry standards. Owner pays maintenance costs. Our team of professionals, in accordance with precise guidelines, will perform all work.


Dream Yacht Sales has secured preferred relationships with third-party financial institutions in each market. Financing options vary from country to country. We will explain the details and put you in touch with an institution to discuss your financial strategy.

Brokerage support

At the end of the program, you may keep your yacht or choose to sell it. We have brokerage offices around the world to assist in marketing your yacht for resale to assure a seamless transition.

Yacht brands and customization

You may choose from several high-end manufacturers, including Bali, Catana, Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot, Nautitech Dufour, Beneteau, Jeanneau, and Neel, Owners may completely customize the layout as well as the equipment, but the yacht must be charter-friendly and easy to maintain. Items like washers, dryers and dishwashers are not recommended, but the yacht can be ‘prepared’ to have these items installed once the owner leaves the fleet.
