Are yachts an underutilised asset?

Foreign readers are very welcome to comment on the situation of their marinas in their countries.

In Spain it is common that in a Marina, up to 50% of the boats are hardly ever used, according to this article.

Is the profile of the average user of Spanish boats different from the rest? What makes an average user spending so much money not only on the boat and TAXES, but also on the expensive manteinance and specially expensive price of the berths?


It seems as if the renting market for boats is very similar to the renting market of flats in Spain, where many market imperfections such as overregulation push people towards buying rather than renting.
