100 Foot Yacht Guide: Navigating the Purchase Process

Superyachts come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, but the 100 foot yacht (just over 30 meters) is a common size range for new buyers. The superyacht category can be characterized by various size ranges depending on who you ask, but tracks superyacht sales for vessels that are at least 24 meters (78.74 feet) in size. Of course, since superyachts can be over 100 meters in length, a 100 foot yacht is on the smaller end of the category.

Whether you’re seeking to skip from island to island at high speeds or are more interested in leisurely cruising along the coast, there is indeed a yacht that suits your needs and wants. For new buyers, walking through the typical process of narrowing down options based on budget, use cases, guest accommodation requirements and more will be quite useful as you start the buying process. Experienced yacht owners often jump right into the buying process by choosing a shipyard or designer. Either buyer can benefit tremendously by partnering with an experienced yacht broker or salesperson who has intimate knowledge of the yacht category under consideration. How should new buyers navigate the buying process? Budget is always a consideration, and buyers should understand that there is always a bigger and more expensive yacht. Understanding total cost of ownership will aid in establishing an accurate budget range. Next, planned use cases will often help narrow down the yacht type. What is the ideal day on the water for you? Where do you plan to go? What are the necessary amenities or toys onboard? If these questions are difficult to answer, the buyer might benefit from chartering a similar sized yacht to gain experience. While stepping aboard yachts at shipyards and boat shows can be beneficial, nothing can match the experience gained by a week at sea aboard a similar yacht being considered for purchase. Yachts in the 100 foot size range will often boast spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces, four or five staterooms accommodating up to 10 guests as well as crew quarters. Today’s yacht buyer demands a constant connection to the water. As such, interior spaces often include large windows to create an open feel with views of the water always present. Outdoor spaces are designed for luxurious relaxation while enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean. Beach clubs are a must have feature for many yachts today to enable both quality time with friends and family at water level as well as a multitude of water sports and activities. Interior design is often dictated by the manufacturer and designer, but you can expect high quality materials and finishes at every turn.
