  2. 2. THE EVOLUTION OF YACHTING Leave everything you know about yacht clubs on the shore and take a voyage into the future of yachting aboard the fleet of Vantage Yachts. Vantage Yacht Club is a cutting edge, private membership club that unites its Members with an unparalleled selection of yachts, services and lifestyle privileges. Vantage has accelerated the evolution of luxury yachting with our Membership, Yacht Card and Yacht Shares programs. These offerings grant Members access to an exquisite collection of yachts without the significant capital outlay of individual ownership. The greatest benefit Vantage offers is our Turn-Key Yacht Management Service that allows Members to step-on and step- off the fleet, leaving every responsibility in the hands of the Vantage Team. Only the benefits of luxury yachting are known to Vantage Yacht Club Members. Vantage has created a way for our Members to experience yachting the way it was meant to be, free from the hassles and responsibilities. More importantly, Vantage has eliminated the financial risk associated with private yacht ownership by drastically minimizing capital costs and offering a guaranteed predictable pricing structure that is bespoke to individual needs and desires. THE INVENTION OF SHARING Although people have been sharing since time immemorial, the concept of asset sharing only recently has begun to drastically change the way we live. Just over two decades ago millionaires, and billionaires, discovered the value and benefits of shared jet ownership. The business model was successfully established when a big four emerged and Berkshire Hathaway acquired the leading jet share company. It now has grown to become the largest and most respected private jet operator in the world. Vantage Yacht Club has advanced yachting by simply applying identical business principles and service standards that have been proven in the private jet industry. Vantage yacht sharing is the most intelligent way to experience the luxury yachting lifestyle. Vantage Membership offers the lowest cost-per-cruise and delivers the highest levels of service. The ultimate value is revealed when one compares Vantage Membership to individual ownership and other yachting schemes. Consult with your Vantage Member Adviser to discover the many benefits of membership and request a© Sunseeker personalized cost-per-cruise analysis of your current or prospective situation compared to the yachting solutions offered by Vantage Yacht Club.
