Key features
  1. Gryo. Very rare for a yacht of this price and size to have an OEM Mitsubishi Gyro. Gryo makes a huge difference in HK where choppy waters are common. It stabilizes the boat quickly and makes yachting much more enjoyable.
  2. Perfect size. At almost 47ft, the yacht is a nice size for families and to entertain guests. It can accommodate 23 people as per the operating license. Also. since it is less than 50ft, you can also drive it yourself with just a PVOL2 license.
  3. No usage restrictions. With just a 25% share ownership of the yacht (the other 2 partners are two courteous individuals who rarely use the boat, ie. once every few months), maintenance costs can be reduced to a minimal while the yacht can be enjoyed anytime with no usage restrictions despite owning only 25% of the boat (ie. can use the boat as much as every week or once every 2 months etc. not pro-rata usage based on shareholder ownership).
  4. Extremely low maintenance costs. Most importantly, maintenance costs is perfectly manageable for a yacht of this size. Over the past 5 years of ownership, it only equals on average 10K HKD per month (25% share ownership portion) which already includes the cost of the boat’s private mooring at the Aberdeen Boat Club (no additional membership fee required as boat can be accessed through public piers also).
  5. Attention to detail. The yacht is looked after by a dedicated captain who is on retainer and can drive the boat at a day’s notice (captain’s fee is only $2000 for a day use). He has been looking after the boat for almost 5 years and knows it inside out.
  6. Also open to outright sale for the entire boat if interested. Link to more pictures and video walkthrough (https://ssyachting.asia/yachts/ferretti-460/).
