Whats does boating cost?
The comparison below shows the boat cost of size corresponding to our Comfort Class, in Pampas marina in Stockholm.
In the example we compare the cost of a new boat where the yard does some maintenance, but not everything. Buying a used boat and having it at a boat club will be cheaper. However, remember that there are working days at the club, night shift, pick up and launch, and you do all maintenance yourself. And old boats break apart. Anytime! If you think the maintenance costs on turns are expensive, then it’s nothing compared to their repair prices!
|Expens||Own boat||Rent boat||Share boat|
|Antifouling, wax, etc.||4.000SEK||0SEK||0SEK|
|Loan and credit*||43.680SEK||0SEK||0SEK|
|Rent 4 weeks||0SEK||40.000SEK||0SEK|
* Based on boat price 420,000SEK, 20% cash, 3% interest rate and 10 year installment.
If the boat is paid in cash, you should count on an annual value reduction instead of about 10% / year.
