Luxury Yacht Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increase in recreational tourism is notably driving the luxury yacht market growth, although factors such as high cost of operations may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the luxury yacht market industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Luxury Yacht Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the luxury yacht market is the increase in recreational tourism. Tourism is a major economic activity across the globe and is a significant contributor to the economic growth, employment, and social development of numerous countries. It also plays a key role in the global luxury yacht market, where commercial yacht operators or fleet operators form a significant part of the business. Also, the natural landscape of many countries, such as Greece, Spain, France, and Italy, attracts tourists from across the world, especially the wealthy segment of the population. These places are also popular destinations for business events and meetings, where luxury yachts are leased from yacht fleet operators. The global tourism industry is witnessing tremendous growth, with Southeast Asia witnessing more growth than other regions. This is primarily due to the increase in the number of tourists from developing countries, such as China and India, who are spending almost three times more on foreign tourism than what they spend locally. Increasing tourism and recreational activities are a few of the significant reasons that are expected to drive the global luxury yacht market during the forecast period.

Key Luxury Yacht Market Trend

Another key factor driving the luxury yacht market growth is the use of advanced materials. Most traditional yachts are built using either steel or aluminum, which makes the yachts heavy and reduces their fuel economy. Although steel and aluminum are less expensive than alternative materials, such as glass fiber reinforced materials or pure carbon fiber, yacht makers realize the overall benefits of using carbon fiber in the construction of the boat. Carbon fiber extensively reduces the yacht's weight, which makes the yacht fast and fuel-efficient. Also, carbon fiber provides additional strength and durability to the boat's dynamics, which enables it to withstand harsh conditions in seas. Carbon-fiber-based composite is a heavy-duty, military-grade, lightweight material. Due to this, it is a widely used material in yacht manufacturing. The carbon-fiber-based boat draws about 7.7' water as compared to aluminum-based boats that draw about 9 -10' water, which means this boat can easily sail in deep or shallow waters. For instance, in August 2021, Azimut Benetti Spa and Loro Piana formed a collaboration in which the maison has fitted out both the interiors and part of the exteriors of the new benetti yacht.

Key Luxury Yacht Market Challenge

High cost of operations is one of the key challenges hindering the luxury yacht market growth. Motor luxury yachts have every modern convenience installed onboard, such as ACs, television, navigation aids, radar, echo-sounding, and autopilot. In order to power all these amenities, luxury yachts require a reliable power generating system. Thus, these yachts use gasoline or diesel-powered internal combustion engine ICEs to sail along with powering these modern conveniences and charging onboard batteries. As these yachts need to run at speeds up to 70 knots, the ICEs that are needed to power the amenities and run the yachts are huge and have high fuel requirements. Therefore, the operation and fueling costs of luxury motor yachts are more than luxury sail yachts. The high operational costs for commercially using luxury yachts challenge the global luxury yacht market, as their private operation is low. Many chartered service providers engage multiple brokers in enhancing potential business opportunities. However, due to the involvement of multiple participants, both the operational cost and complexities in availing services augment further. In certain cases, leasing a large yacht can cost as much as $50,000-$55,000 per week to the chartered service buyers.

This luxury yacht market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic had caused significant disruptions in the regional economy. By the end of the first quarter of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic brought international travel to an abrupt halt and significantly impacted the tourism industry in the region. The spread of the COVID-19 epidemic caused the suspension of cruise activities from mid-March 2020, the immobilization of the entire fleet, the decline of revenues for all companies. Various vendors incurred losses during the pandemic. For instance, Fincantieri Spa, headquartered in Italy, faced the impact of COVID-19 on the shipbuilding segment. The company reported a loss of 3.2 million production hours, 2.7 million only in the first half of 2020, and a corresponding loss of progress in revenues totaling $1,235 million. In 2021, the ease of lockdown measures and launch of vaccines have been positively impacting the marine industry, which in turn regional luxury yacht market in focus. As per Fincantieri Spa Annual Report, in 2021, the start of the vaccination phase has been encouraging a gradual recovery, concentrated in the second half of the year.
