Luxury Yacht Market
Luxury Yacht Market

The global luxury yacht market is anticipated to witness an uptick with the development of social society leading to changes in income and other lifestyles. The global luxury yacht market is expected to grow at a steady rate of around 7.5% majorly due to the rapid urbanization and demand for recreational and pleasurable tourism. The growing number of high-net-worth individuals (HNWI) and the introduction of technologically advanced yachts are the main factors driving the growth of new yacht sales in the region. High-tech interiors and luxury amenities offered by European OEMs are also expected to boost demand in the yacht industry. OEM manufacturers are observed to continuously invest in R&D activities to provide unique travel experiences with luxury accommodations.

Despite the high total cost of ownership associated with private yachts, the yachts are readily available on a charter basis, so sea travel and tourism activities are not significantly impacted. Improved coast guard systems, connectivity, tracking, and higher disposable income continue to drive the market. Additionally, advances in telematics and IoT platforms are expected to increase the industry’s potential in the coming years.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst material type, composite material category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on material type, the market is segmented into wood, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, composite material and others. The composite material segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR due to factors such as composite material offering tremendous potential in marine applications. Composite is the most preferred material owing to various factors such as lightweight due to which the speed of the yacht increases which further improves the fuel efficiency of yachts. Additionally, the composite material has low stiffness and high corrosion resistance thus providing flexibility in yacht manufacturing.

“Amongst type, sailing luxury yacht category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on type, the market is segmented into sailing luxury yacht, motorized luxury yacht, and others. The sailing yacht segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR due to factors such as that they offer a unique and luxurious experience not found with other types of yachts. Additionally, sailing yachts are becoming increasingly popular as vacation homes due to their many benefits, such as the ability to explore different areas without worrying about mooring. These yachts are equipped with all the amenities and features to expect in a five-star hotel, including luxurious accommodations, gourmet kitchens and spacious decks. Additionally, many yachts have private pools, hot tubs, and even helipads, meaning buyers can truly enjoy the luxury life on board.

“Asia Pacific grow with a significant CAGR during the forecast period.”

Asia Pacific grows with a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in disposable income and higher standard of life are two major reasons driving the shift in the region’s population’s preference for yacht travel. Additionally, government programs promoting tourist development, such as the Swadesh Darshan Scheme and Incredible India, are expected to boost regional market growth throughout the forecast period. Countries with economic crises, political instability, and strict FDI regulations, on the other hand, are expected to have a negative impact on growth. The improved standard of living owing to a rise in disposable income is a critical factor responsible for the changing consumer preference in the global yacht market.
