How Much Does A Small Yacht Cost
Understanding the classifications of yachts can be important to determining which type of vessel is going to suit your needs the best. As professional yacht brokers we are often asked which yachts would be considered a starting point or small and which yachts are considered to be luxury.
Size isn’t everything when it comes to a yacht and there are some vessels that are just above the 50 foot range that come with luxury amenities which can drive their price point up considerably. As a basic answer to what a small yacht may be, most types of yachts on the smaller and will range between 20 to 50 feet. Extremely large yachts can be an impressive size at well over 600 feet in their length.
Most yachts that are under 40 feet longer are considered cruisers. Cruiser yachts can often be purchased on the low end for just over $30,000 as a used vessel. Any vessel that ranges above 40 feet is considered a standard yacht with a super yacht category being any vessel that’s over 80 feet long.
Even though small yachts can start at $30,000 in their used formats, there are still some extremely high luxury small yachts on the market. Examples like the Viking Yacht company that outfits their vessels in high quality wood and luxury touches drive the price of a small yacht up considerably. The luxury yacht in a small format might be 35 to 40 feet but it could have a new price tag of over $850,000. The price points on small yachts vary considerably but they ultimately come down to the finishings and the features that you want to outfit the yacht with.
