Pick up a copy of a good yachting magazine and look at the for sale ads. Yachts depreciate rapidly as being in a maritime environment deteriorates their hulls, fittings, and equipment. They are extremely expensive to maintain and crew. Chartering usually offsets little of the actual cost of owning one. The exception to this general rule of depreciation is a yacht of historical significance or particular performance excellence.

boat licence in New Zealand?

We just sold our 2002 12' x 52' Catamaran Cruiser houseboat with twin 225hp Yamaha four-stoke outboards (also 2002s). The boat and motors had depreciated, slightly, but because of all the extras that we added, we did VERY well in the sale of it. Some of the extras included: Satellite dish with the tracking system, furniture ( two single beds, a single futon, dining table, bar stools, deck furniture), custom artwork. Truthfully, the extras are what "made" the boat and were the key to our sale.
