It seems inevitable that in future, some houseboats will be purchased with bitcoin, in fact, you could say it has started already.
According to prmnewswire, Bob Denison has announced that Denison Yachts will accept Bitcoin as payment for new yachts( a first for the industry), following the completion of its first ever sale of a yacht involving Bitcoin.
Denison, which was at the forefront of the yachting industry when it announced in 2014 that it will accept Bitcoin from customers and convert it for purchases of its brokerage yachts, will also begin taking Bitcoin directly as payment for its in-stock inventory, which includes a variety of new Beneteau, Dufour and Fountaine Pajot yachts.
Denison Broker Wiley Sharp, who is based in Denison’s St. Thomas office, brokered the deal last week for a 48′ Leopard sailing catamaran in the Virgin Islands. The buyer used Coinbase to convert his bitcoins to the dollars he used to purchase the yacht.
“Bitcoin is not just a ‘millennial’ fad,” said Bob Denison. “There are Bitcoin users of all ages, across all continents buying and selling luxury goods, including cars and villas. There’s absolutely no reason why a seller should be wary of accepting Bitcoin.”
To learn more about purchasing a new yacht with Bitcoin, contact New Yachts Manager Nick Stamoulis at 954.763.3971 or .
Wylam was built in 1958 by Viking Marine, Goole of 10ml steel for carrying lead between Newcastle and Hartlepool. She was decommissioned in about 1968 and used as a fully rigged ‘man of war’ in film sets. After being abandoned for some time she was used to live on and then in the late 1990s was fully converted with a new cabin, two decks and mahogany wheelhouse to her current layout.
She is a qualifying vessel. The moorings and any ship related expenses are exempt from VAT.
She comes with the moorings paid up to Dec 31st 2017. Six years to run on a 10 year fully residential renewable licence. A four-year Boat safety cert. and a recent hull survey.
