Discover Sailing Asia partners Beneteau to Launch Charter Fleet in Asia

Discover Sailing Asia is delighted to announce its new partnership with Beneteau, for the exclusive supply of a fleet of 32 Beneteau Oceanis 45 sail boats to be based in eight countries around Asia and available for charter.

Discover Sailing Asia’s mission is to develop sailing in Asia via an all-inclusive intelligent yacht ownership program offering investors to purchase a new Beneteau Oceanis 45 to be managed and chartered by Discover Sailing Asia covering all yearly operational costs and granting up to 9% of the yacht’s value as yearly revenue to owner. This easy ownership program is destined for investors seeking alternative investments while enjoying hassle free sailing in Asia.

The company offers three membership programs for investors with PERFORMANCE, ELITE or DREAM Programs, each of them offering unique advantages to owners with the PERFORMANCE program including a buy back guarantee after 6 years of use. Each program combines financial benefits with a defined number of weeks that owners are entitled to use their boats in their base but are also entitled to use all the other yachts in the fleet within the total of 18 locations proposed by Discover Sailing Asia and including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines.

Discover Sailing Asia company’s vision consists on establishing a fleet of 32 units of Beneteau Oceanis 45 within eight countries of Asia with various locations in each country.

Most popular destinations are still Europe with Croatia and Italy, followed by the Caribbean with Martinique as a favorite bare boat destination.

By creating easy purchase, management and revenue to owners, Discover Sailing Asia is providing a chance to access sailing to a much broader group than before and as consequence considerably increase boating figures.
