48′ Leopard catamran (would suit liveaboard) puts Bitcoin on the yachting map with first ever cryptocurrency Yacht Deal

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 .

Static or Cruising, what type of boat?

Static or Cruising, what type of boat?

Where do you want to BE??

It may be your job determines the area you need to live in, or a need to be near family or friends. If so you know what area you should live in and even if you choose a Residential Cruiser, you will need a secure mooring within travelling distance of that area

But if you are retired, or can work from anywhere (maybe you work over the internet, or as an artist in studio, or you are regularly travelling all over the country to clients. ) Then you can consider a life of freedom, using the many moorings provided free on the waterways.

You can choose to be a Continuous Cruiser all year round as I have

for years.

Sometimes for a particular contract, or family reasons, choosing a suitable Marina to stay in for a few months.

I love the freedom of the river. It is kind and friendly if you treat it with proper respect, no tides to worry about, being inland there are very few harsh gales.

It feels so civilised to be able to cruise gently up to a nice Restaurant mooring, tie up and saunter in for a drink or a meal.You may well, like me, love to see grass and trees, they are always in view on the River.

Go through any town in Europe by train, you will see the worst views, go any where by boat and you will see the best views, partly because for hundreds of years, many people with the means have bought riverside land for its beauty and often made the effort to enhance that beauty with landscaping and architecture ).

Only Buy a Static houseboat if you have a Long-lease mooring or a freehold mooring….

A static houseboat gives a permanent address and a fixed journey to and from work/school/family. There are very few moorings with planning permissin for static houseboats and their numbers have dwindled over the years as houseboat “marinas” close for that business and are developed  for a more profitable market. For this reason it is important that you control the future of your mooring with a freehold or adequately long leasehold. In any case have a solicitor with experience in the field of “Riparian rights” to examine the mooring contract you are offered before you sign anything. One owner came to me heartbroken that he had bought a static houseboat on a rented mooring that the unqualified broker (who had never owned or lived in a houseboat) advertised as a “Secure residential mooring”. Went on holiday just after buyng the boat and came back to find that the mooring owner had moved him to a place where his view was blotted out by a huge three story houseboat. Ther was nothing he could do about the move. The Landlord had the right to move him.

The only recourse in such a case is to sue the broker, who is legally liable to reveal everything he knows that could affect the value of the boat. Brokers normally have professional third party liability insurance to cover such claims up to several million pounds. It still takes a lot of time, causes  lot of stress and does not give you back your dream home.
