With the idea of sailing yacht trips, Sailing-Classics has opened up a new, unique vacation segment between yacht sailing and cruising and is thus a pioneer in what is expected to be a stable long-term market for individual sea trips on luxury yachts.
This is all the more true after Corona, because we came out of the crisis with "Wumms".
To exploit this potential at all, and also to become much more sustainable, we want to build the three-master AEOLUS - the world's first commercial 'zero emission' sailing yacht.
For financing we are looking for private investors, on the one hand as entrepreneurial participation (limited partner) >500 T€ or on the other hand - this is completely new - as "preferred limited partners" with a fixed 3.5% distribution in case of profit + bonus as well as a buy-back offer after 5 years. Here, private investors can opt for tonnage tax in the Netherlands, which already covers income tax at a flat rate.
In addition, we are looking for lenders > 250 T€ with a term of 5 to 10 years and an interest rate of 4% p.a.. A ship mortgage registered jointly for all lenders serves as collateral. We also continue to offer our popular bond in the form of a bearer/partial bond of €25k or a multiple thereof and up to a maximum of €100k, now at an increased fixed interest rate of 2.5%.
All forms of participation and loans are also associated with travel benefits or discounts (20%) within the Sailing-Classics Club, and for the family of limited partners there is also the annual partner sailing.
