As a Dream Yacht Charter and Sales Forward Sales Program yacht owner, you receive these benefits:

Sailing time

Owners are guaranteed income of 3% based on their 50% buyer’s payment.

Zero operating expenses

As an owner, you have no out-of-pocket expenses for the duration of the agreement (All maintenance, insurance, dockage, etc., is paid by Dream Yacht Charter and Sales.).

Professional maintenance and phase-out

Our yacht’s maintenance will meet the most rigorous industry standards at no cost to you. Our team of professionals, in accordance with precise guidelines, will perform all work.


No financing is required.


The agreement covers 84 months in a French territory or jurisdiction.

Brokerage support

At the end of the agreement, you may keep your yacht or choose to sell it. We have brokerage offices around the world that will assist in marketing your yacht for resale to assure a seamless transition.

Yacht brands and customization

Beneteau, Catana, Jeanneau, and Lagoon are the only manufacturers for this program. No customization is available for these yachts.

The Forward Sale Program exists through a French tax incentive.

A buyer receives an up-front 50% discount on the purchase price of a brand new Beneteau, Catana, Jeanneau, Lagoon or Bali. Consequently, only the 50% balance is due at closing. Under this program, owners may enjoy up to 6 weeks of sailing per year at no expense and yet still earn 3% annual, guaranteed income based on the 50% owner’s investment. The yacht must be operated for 7 years in a French territory such as Martinique, Guadeloupe or Tahiti. There is no early exit possible.
