The SuperNano on its first sea trial

Are you looking for a valid alternative to Jetski? At first we wanted to create a flexible toy for our superyacht owners. Then we decided to have more fun and create something for a larger user base. Something to be safer and more user-friendly than a jetski (aka more stable). Something you could feel the water but also sunbathe at anchor. Something easy to maintain, launch, and store in a single car garage. Lastly, we wanted to create something with an unusual retro/classic feel to it. Let’s just say it, something a little bit more classy than a jetski and more elegant than a 4mt rib. Ladies and gentlemen here is to you what we named The SuperNano.

SuperNano After its first 20nautical mile test in one go

It all started from an old product that we noticed in our yard that had nearly been abandoned by its owner. Now more than ever catamarans advantages are appreciated but there is not much on the market under 10 meters and without a rigging. So why not bring the fun of racing catamarans to a broader public for everybody to enjoy.

Now to the big question:

The Rodriquez team being the Rodriquez team hardly can think of a marine item without the use of foils so YES we are currently studying a foiled version but one that is truly easy to use, maintain and that is safe even for kids to operate. (We can’t disclose much more at this time but stay tuned). At this stage we can only say we will release a foiled version only when we are satisfied that is usable and relatively safe for inexperienced operators too.

SuperNano during first sea trial

1)Easier to maintain and re-power if needed

2)Easier to haul and lunch of deck or on the beach thanks to its flat bottom hulls

3)More stable at anchor you as two people can lay on the side and sunbathe

4)Safer than a jetski under way thanks to a lot more stability and less aggressive power to weight ratio

5)More loading capacity then a jetski you can easily carry your wakeboard and a case of your favourite champagne on it

6) Safer for rental business to hire out and much more economical to manage.

7) Powered by outboard engines from 25hp to 70hp (one you may already own) or an electric one. (30hp Mercury 4 stroke in the video)

In the last 15 years at Rodriquez Consulting we have served a variety of yacht charter companies and private owners who were keen on chartering their yachts.  We have created a Yacht Charter Business Plan download because more often than not we are asked to help them with their business plan but often times startups can’ afford to rely entirely on our team from the start so we decided to poor in some of our knowledge into a ready made starting point.  Undoubtedly the question we are asked most often is:

Is yacht charter profitable and/or is it a good business to get in? or Can investing in yacht charter be profitable in some ways?

In many industries the above questions would be rather simple to answer. However, in the yachting industry answering these questions with anything else other than “It depends..” requires us to get into a great level of details. At the very least, we need to get into the specifics of the size segment you choose, the primary geographic area and the yacht charter business model that you intend to implement.

Geography, Business Model, Size Segment of the yacht/boat/vessel

To most people Yacht Charter rates seem to be very high as an absolute per-week-value, but are they high enough when you consider the cost of the asset/s (the yacht/s) and its running costs? The latter can have a very large range as variable costs depending on how and where the vessel is managed and can make a significant difference. Ultimately, it the acquisition price (the price of the vessel) that is crucial but the variable and fix costs are the ones that can determine whether the operation (your yacht charter business) is profitable or not.  If you are looking to build a business plan to charter yachts and get in the business this article will be useful, however, you might want to contact us for more ad-hoc support.

Classic Yachts alway have a market in the charter industry, here is a very good example of an off-market opportunity soon to go on auction, that is currently in full charter operation and could very well be acquired by a new owner.

This DeCesari 21 meter Classic Yacht is a splendid 3 cabin + 2 separate crew cabins (one aft one bow) layout tastefully maintained in its interior to a timeless, classic design. Currently moored north of sicily and available for charter with the current owner it is a very good opportunity to acquire a vessel of certain calibre for under €200k. [Offers are welcome]

 

The vessel is a displacement hull with stabilising fins that cruises comfortable and with low fuel consumption at around 13-15 knots, perfect for charter guests who want to keep fuel costs under control. The vessel is powered by twin FIAT AIFO engines 440 hp each .
