Yachtco White Paper
FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY
A word from our CEO
Dear reader,
I had an incredible journey over the last couple of years
in the yachting industry. We created the Blackbird Group
with its most recognisable brand SkipperCity. We had
much fun with our clients - with whom I had a pleasure of
spending some time on the water, sailing the big blue
ocean, and with our partners, who are just incredible.
IT today is amazing. Any business and industry can develop tools and options
for everyone involved to speed up all processes and deliver better
information. Moreover, with blockchain, you are adding trust to the formula.
Coming from an IT and marketing background, I instantly noticed many
things could be done better to get things done faster, cheaper and more
efficiently.
The Yacht charter industry has been doing business the same old way for
decades. So now, the time to do it differently and better is here with Yachtco.
My team and I have been wo...

The competitiveness of the services sector (charters
and marinas)
The turnover of the European charter sector is estimated to be € - 6 billion,
while the industry employs approximately 20,000 people. While the highest
number of boat owners is in Northern Europe (in particular Sweden and the
Baltic States), the Mediterranean Sea alone attracts 70% of the world charter
demand. The sector is dominated by five companies (Sunsail, Le boat and
Footloose that are owned by TUI Marine, Dream Yacht Charter and
Kiriakoulis) which cover about 80% of the European market.
Marinas realise a turnover of almost €4 billion and employ approximately
40,000-70,000 people. Like the charters, there is a strong seasonal influence
on demand and turnover. Marinas are subdivided into privately and publicly
(municipality/regionally) owned marinas. There is a trend towards private
owners that operate a chain of marinas or marinas that are organised as a...

Yachtco White Paper
FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY
The demand trend is attributed to the phenomenon that today's users of
boats appear to be less willing to accept long preparation of their boating
trips, constant maintenance or dealing with future problems, leading to
decreasing tendencies to own a boat and an increased growth demand for
charters. They want to go to their preferred destination, have a boat ready
and everything functioning throughout their holidays. In the past, boat
owners took all these issues into account when using their boats. In the last
years, sales of boats decreased, but chartering increased, even though
periods of the charter have shortened. This trend confirmed through
interviews with boating associations and charter companies. They stated that
consumers spend less and less time on the boat and that renting is gaining
popularity. Recreational boating is gaining popularity as a new way of
spending vacations. Chartering, therefore, endured the crisis rather we...
