To play yacht, start with choosing yacht
Yacht industry and yacht consumption are maturing, and yachts that can be purchased range from 34 feet below to 150 feet. For those who first contact yachts, it is difficult to understand the difference without a little effort. Fortunately, all this can be handed over to yacht agents. But if you can understand what kind of yacht you need, it will be easier for yacht merchants to find the right yacht for you.
Choose the right type of yacht
What type of yacht will suit your needs depends on how you plan to use your yacht. There are three main yacht activities: leisure, fishing and water sports. For different functional requirements, the applicable yachts are also different.
Cruising boats are designed for business customers. Some are only suitable for daytime games, such as bowriders; others offer cabin and overnight functions, such as express cruisers and motoryachts. You have to decide whether your boat only needs to be used during the day or overnight.
In order to have as much deck space as possible for fishing, the cab is open and designed at the stern of the boat. This design results in a much smaller seating space and accommodation than cruising boat. In order to stay overnight and expand the fishing area, bigger fishing boats provide passenger cabins like cruising boats.
Water sports boats are designed for people who like to play with water skis and surfboards. Some water sports boats are very complex and can only be recommended to experienced water sports enthusiasts. As an entry-level sports boat, there are roughly bowrider, sportboat, jet boat or basic Waterski boat.
Determine scale size
Yacht size is a key consideration. The larger the scale, the more facilities, including cabins, kitchens, bathrooms and so on. And the bigger the boat, the more systems it needs to understand and operate, and the more complex it is. As the first person to contact a yacht, the size of the first yacht should not exceed 24 feet, the simpler the better.
Choosing Yacht Brand
After cultivation in recent years, Xiamen's relatively mature yacht market has entered more than 20 yacht brands, including yacht brands produced locally in Xiamen, such as Hansheng, Feichi and so on. There are also yacht brands from Italy, such as Faraday and Azm. Recently, British princesses have also entered the Xiamen market with great enthusiasm. As a consumer, choosing a yacht brand must consider one thing: yacht after-sales service. Therefore, it is more advisable for you to choose a local manufacturer or a national general agent for yachts located in Xiamen. Of course, this is only a simple geographical consideration. In fact, yacht brands stationed in Xiamen will value their after-sales service quality, after all, every brand yacht has its brand value support. In the future, personalized after-sales service will become a trend. At that time, brand advantages can also be considered from value-added services.
Experience Yachts from Practical Operations
The appearance and ease of operation of yachts are the most noticeable areas, but in addition, it is better to pay attention to the following items when buying yachts:
Ideal cruise speed. It's about your range and fuel consumption.
The size of noise is related to comfort, so it is very important. It's not the same with the same engine noise. Noise generation is related to many factors, such as vibration, structural thickness and so on.
Sitting in front of the bridge, check the foot space and the control range of the joystick to see if the vision is wide when sitting in the driver's seat and standing in the cab.
Open the engine hatch cover, observe the engine compartment, check the engine's regular parts, such as fuel gauge, coolant, etc. See if it's easy to reach these parts.
Check the size of the locker. Even if you don't have much to store, the bigger the locker, the better.
