Synchrony shared yacht program launches

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A new shared yacht ownership program called Synchrony has been formed, the company announced today in a release. The program offers year-round access to yachts positioned in North America, Europe and the Caribbean.

Synchrony owners have access to yachts for up to six weeks per year, according to the company. Synchrony said it provides the same access as fully owned private vessels, including the freedom to book advanced vacations or spontaneous trips or events.

After becoming Synchrony members, users acquire a dedicated interest in a specific luxury yacht and have access to the entire Synchrony fleet of fully crewed and maintained yachts. Concierge and service teams are on hand to plan all elements of the yachting experience, including cruising schedules, trip logistics and culinary experiences, the company explained.

The Azimut-Benetti Group will design and configure the Benetti Classic 120-foot yachts used for the program. The vessels will offer accommodations for 10-12 guests in five staterooms, two salons, indoor and outdoor dining areas and a sundeck with built-in Jacuzzi and bar.

“Our concept is completely unprecedented in the world of yacht ownership,” said Bob Saxon, a Synchrony advisor. “By offering the industry’s lowest owner-to-yacht ratio, the highest caliber vessels, unparalleled service and a combination of advanced bookings and flexible short-term access, discerning yacht owners now have a smarter option to access the luxury yacht lifestyle.”
