The looming SOLAS 2010 implementation date offers both perils and opportunities. The biggest peril is the possibility that the expense to bring a ship into full compliance with international standards will be greater than the value of the ship. However there is a silver lining in this cloud. This pending SOLAS implementation date has already started to show up as a primary factor in the asking and selling prices of ships on the market today.
For comparison purposes it is noteworthy that you have expenses in land based housing too. Those expenses include property taxes homeowners insurance maintenance and repairs yard care and utilities. Additionally you have transportation costs and of course food costs. Most people also spend money on entertainment too. When these expenses are added up the maintenance fees for living aboard a ship are comparable.
Many travelers choose a cruise ship as their vacation. It offers the luxury of hotels while getting to travel to different locations. Choosing a cabin on a cruise ship is just as important as choosing a hotel when traveling to a land destination. There are many things to consider such as location on the ship view from the window and the different prices. Most cruise ships offer numerous different categories of cabins for guests to choose from. As with any vacation the wrong room accommodation could ruin a trip so do plenty of research and make the choice that best fits your needs.
Do the math. If one hundred buyers pool resources in exchange for a percentage of ship ownership the acquisition cost will be divided by that same number. One percent ownership of a $250000 cruise ship would cost a mere $2500 for ship acquisition. At the other end of the scale one percent ownership of a brand new mega cruise ship would cost five million dollars.
Let`s look at the numbers on this ship. 100% of the acquisition cost would have been $500000. 1% thus = $5000. One hundred buyers could own one percent each. There are 120 cabins so each co-owner could have a private cabin with 20 cabins left over. However these cabins are a bit on the small side. Every cabin does have a bath and shower but the size is just too small to be comfortable for most people especially if the owners intend to live onboard full time. On a ship this size I would recommend that there be no more than 60 joint owners so each can have two cabins and will have the option of converting those two cabins into a two room suite. To keep the numbers simple lets say that this ship has 50 buyers who each buy 2% of the ship. Buy in cost per owner would then be $10000. If there were only ten buyers then the acquisition cost per buyer would be $50000. $50000 will not buy much of a house on land but on this ship it would buy 10% of a ship like the Vergina Sky and twelve cabins that could be converted into a fairly large home.
