Charter Boat Business and Tax Issues


We are still waiting to see how the Administration will treat the Section 179 for 2015 and hopefully 2016.

Meanwhile, here is an interesting excerpt about a case won by a taxpayer about active boat ownership. This is the prrof that those cases can be won.


New Lagoon 39 at Miami Boat Show


The new Lagoon 39 fits between the Landmark  Lagoon 380 and the new Lagoon 400 S2 version of the Lagoon 400. She will be a great charter boat! Her design follows the new Lagoon 52 and is apparent at first sight: vertical are bevelled bows, aerial cabintop above the deck, and a mast positioned abaft for sailing performance and ease of handling… a strong character indeed! VPLP’s touch goes far beyond all this: the simple, efficient deck layout allows to control the main maneuvers from the steering station, the wide side decks are safe and uncluttered and the stern platforms are designed for an easy, protected boarding.

Helia 44

The new Fountaine Pajot HELIA 44 catamaran was just launched to replace the Orana 44. F-P came up with a new innovative benchmark design for a cruising catamaran: she benefits from the yard’s 30-year experience in building safe, seaworthy and comfortable cruising catamarans. The Helia 44 is your perfect charter yacht, with large accomodations, and countless innovations.
