1. Who may use the WeBoatLovers listing platform?
Anybody who wants to sell or to buy a new property such as a boat, a yacht or a ship, either in the conventional way or via a co-ownership legal structure. They are called potential or prospective co-owners.
On the other hand, any existing owners of any of these high priced discretionary properties may decide to sell a part of the ownership to other prospective co-owners under a “co-ownership” legal structure to share the ownership and the potential use of these properties under a managed “shared consumption” method.
The listing platform is designed for them to meet first. Once they have decided to co-own together. WeBoatLovers would assist them in corporatizing the assets via a proper legal structure in each country and help them with the fractional share ownership based on the percentage of their financial contributions.
