Luxury yachts and other seaborne vessels have become increasingly common amongst high wealth individuals and corporate executives. And with the numerous arangements that are entered into when buying, selling and leasing/charterting luxury yachts/ships, there are significant legal nuances that need to be addressed when negotiating and completing such transactions. At Neufeld Legal P.C., we work with our high wealth clients to appropriately position them relative to their commercial dealings pertaining to luxury yachts and ships, including:

Purchase / Sale: Assisting in buying and selling of new and used luxury yachts, which often entails the negotiation of price and financing arrangements, sale-and-leaseback arrangements dealing with ship brokers, international tax matters related to cross-border deals.

Leasing / Chartering: Creating the structure through which luxury yachts can be leased / chartered and thereafter dealing with the obligations associated with the leasing process (both from the perspective of lessor (ship leasing companies) and lessee), especially when a leased yacht / ship can be misappropriated for illegal purposes.

Upkeep and Upgrading: Dealing with matters related to maintaining or increasing the value of the luxury yacht, in the interest of increasing its quality and its resale value.

Contracts: Contractual arrangements with the individuals and companies involved in facilitating the operation and repair of the luxury yacht.

Litigation: Dealing with matters pertaining to the use and operation of luxury yachts (including illegal activity involving the ship's use, which has the potential of seriously jeopardized the return of the yacht) .
