Monday, January 20, 2020 6:26 PM
At Boot Düsseldorf 2020, Sanlorenzo will launch High-end Services, a new turnkey premium service division, dedicated to Sanlorenzo clients only, which includes the first Single-brand Charter Fleet in the yachting world and the Crew Training Programs at the Sanlorenzo Academy.
To reflect both its ethos of excellence and market position, Sanlorenzo has created High-end Services. A division entirely focused on the proposal of a 360° package of services, to which only Sanlorenzo clients will have access. This peace-of-mind proposal provides innovative services never offered before in the yachting sector: tailor made Leasing/financing packages, Sanlorenzo Charter Fleet, Crew Training at the Sanlorenzo Academy and the Sanlorenzo Timeless maintenance/refitting packages.
Tailor made Leasing/financing packages: Sanlorenzo, in an effort to provide global support to its valuable clients, has reached agreements with its primary financial partners for a structured financial / leasing offer, individually tailored for each client. Italian leasing is the most competitive among the ones complying with EU legislation and the awareness of the competitiveness of the Italian flag is growing. In addition to the absence of a property tax, Italian flag guarantees the maximum legal reliability. With the introduction by law in 2019 of the Electronic Register of Pleasure boats and Superyachts (the same plate form existing for the cars), it offers absolute certainty on ownership. The services offered also comply with tax legislation on fiscal exemptions for navigation in international waters.
Sanlorenzo Charter Fleet: a growing numbers of yacht owners are becoming aware that keeping their yacht sailing is the best way to ensure it is always in pristine working order. As well as bringing significant economic results, charter is an attractive activity recently enjoying a striking growth. Sanlorenzo, always attentive to the evolution of the nautical world and to the expectations of its highly demanding clients, has therefore created the first single-brand charter program in the yachting sector. Besides offering Sanlorenzo owners the opportunity to offset the operating costs of their yachts, it provides professional consultancy throughout all the stages following a yacht purchase. As a guarantee of excellence, Sanlorenzo selected Equinoxe Yachts as its operational partner. With over 30 years’ experience in business, Equinoxe Yachts is acknowledged as one of the foremost consultants on the international yachting market and epitomises Italian excellence in the field.
The main assets that make this program really unique are: a 12-month warranty extension for new yacht buyers who intend to have their crew trained at the Sanlorenzo Crew Academy, Technical assistance packages carried out by Sanlorenzo shipyards, a comprehensive charter management consultancy service covering the legal, administrative and management aspects of the business, marketing of the yacht on the world charter market (traditional and digital marketing, attendance to the main international boat shows, organisation of Sanlorenzo-branded “Charter Open Days” etc.), access to Sanlorenzo Crew Academy.
