The cost of maintaining a sailing yacht can vary greatly depending on the size, age, and condition of the yacht, as well as the type of maintenance required. Here are some of the typical costs associated with maintaining a sailing yacht:

  1. Dockage/mooring fees: These are fees charged for the use of a dock or mooring. The cost can vary depending on the location and amenities provided.

  2. Insurance: Yacht insurance can be expensive, but it is essential to protect against damage, theft, and liability.

  3. Maintenance and repairs: Regular maintenance and repairs are necessary to keep the yacht in good condition and to prevent more costly problems down the line. This includes cleaning, painting, and varnishing, as well as mechanical and electrical repairs.

  4. Hauling and storage: Yachts must be hauled out of the water periodically for maintenance and storage. This can be costly, especially if specialized equipment is required.

  5. Fuel and supplies: Yachts consume fuel and other supplies such as water, food, and cleaning products. These costs can vary depending on the size of the yacht and the amount of use.

  6. Crew: If a yacht has a crew, such as a captain and/or deckhands, their salaries and benefits must be taken into account.

Overall, the cost of maintaining a sailing yacht can range from a few thousand dollars per year for a small, older yacht to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year for a larger, more luxurious yacht. It is important to factor in these costs when considering the purchase of a sailing yacht, and to budget accordingly to ensure the yacht is properly maintained and kept in good condition.

the case of the genset:-

first the water impeller, missed diagnosis by the engineer as a dysfunctional foot valve..then

oil leak into bilges due to collapsed oil sensor

and then all the while, yacht out of use because aircon cannot run without the genset

followed by broken raw water pump and not long thereafter a fuel leak, again filling the bilges with diesel and the end is not in sight 🙈

A beautiful sailing yacht are much similar to our women

elegant, high maintenance easy to love, easy to sleep with and also easy to forgive😎🏝️😇
