From a personal point of view, I totally agree. However, the individual owner nature of these charter fleets requires the ability to upsell the owner, when the initial 3-6 year period is over. I suspect they've factored that in somehow. It's the only way they sell the next gen of boats. The really big fleets often take the old hull on trade (although, I have to assume you could do better yourself, just like trading in a car).

Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono

Huh.

3-4 too many cabins for a 43 footer, to my taste.
3 companionways is an interesting choice. 2 families with kids?
The crew cabin is, per usual, a horrorshow, but better that the Moorings 50.5?

My favorite feature is that it looks like you have to go forward to trim the jib.

Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono

Here's another article about it:
Jeanneau Sun Loft 47, for charter. Without compromises

The headline is absurd, since the boat is nothing but compromises.

Quote:
The Sun Loft 47 was created at the express request of the marketing department of Les Herbiers shipyard to be offered to tour operators and charter companies such as The Yacht Week, MedSailors, G Adventures or Dream Yacht Charter and therefore mainly for single boarding, for those who want, first of all, to meet new people.

Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono

It definitely sounds like the charter industry has identified a market and are having boats built specifically for that market.

I guess you could look at it as a hostel or as a very small cruise ship.

They must have somebody in mind to skipper them too. That's a lot of work single handling a boat and taking care of 12 non sailing guests.

It looks like there is just the one small crew cabin.

That begs the question, what do they do with the trade ins?

I guess if you could buy one cheap enough it might be worth re-configuring the interior to make it more practical for a couple...

Gotta, say, the head right by the bed is really off-putting.

Re: 6 Cabins 5 Bathrooms on a 47 foot mono

Sitting in the Tobago Cays National Marine Sanctuary last week during the Easter charter season there were around 45 catamarans and about 9 monohulls. Of the cats, perhaps half a dozen were privately owned and the rest were bareboats, some crewed and some not. Of the monohulls, 2 were bareboats and the rest private cruising boats.
I can't imagine anyone spending the money these days on a monohull for a bareboat charter fleet. I doubt they would work enough to pay their way.

Good question. Maybe sell them to the same crowd that buys pontoon boats. I don't understand them either, but they're all over the inland waterways.

Pontoons are awesome, they're like floating patios!



This Jeanneau is like a floating dormitory.
