The Tall Ship 'Soren Larsen'
No lawns to mow!
We invite you to own an important slice of maritime history
...and enjoy high seas adventures too!
The Tallship “Soren Larsen” is one of the world’s most popular iconic ships and has received many accolades as one of the world’s best experiences for people of most ages and abilities.
The current owners have lived the dream for 5 years. They have enjoyed travel to many exotic locations and have enjoyed the company of many crew and passengers who chose to sail on her. They have invested seriously in the ship and she is restored to her full magnificence.
The owners have decided to move on and believe it is now time to share this beautiful slice of history. The ship is for sale for outright purchase , however it is their belief that in the interests of the ship and the sailing community it would be best to also offer her for sale by Syndication.
We would like to obtain expressions of interest from more people who like this idea and would consider participation in some form of syndicated ownership. We can safely say cash returns will be minimal, however, there may be some tax advantages.
Importantly participants will qualify for “owners usage rights” giving access to a number of nights a year at heavily discounted rate. The exact terms of the scheme will be developed in due course. These rights can be gifted but not sold.
At this stage we would to like to hear from anyone wishing to register an expression of interest in investing. We are anticipating that investments will start from $10,000 with enhanced owners’ usage rights for larger investments.
(This is not an offer of an investment – an offer may be made in due course subject to sufficient interest being expressed)
