Top-5 affordable yachts from the best shipyards

August 20, 2023

In this article, we will tell you about several well-known shipyards and their yachts that belong to the low-cost segment. The cost of a yacht trip largely depends on the chosen boat (probably even to the greatest extent on the yacht). So it is very important to choose the right budget. But at the same time, quite a comfortable and well-equipped option. Therefore, here we present the top-5 affordable yachts from the world’s best manufacturers.

The world’s best shipyards

There are not many manufacturers in this segment. Especially when we consider rather large ones with good infrastructure and technical support systems. The products of the companies described here have been holding leading positions in the markets for a long time, not only in the low-cost segment of sailing yachts but also among motorboats and catamarans.

The world’s best shipyards are located in France and Germany. Here we should mention the following ones: Jeanneau, Beneteau Dufour, Bavaria, Hanse, and Dehler. All their products have an aesthetic design, they are practical, reliable, and with good ergonomics. Good natural and synthetic materials, such as wood, glass, aluminum, and carbon are used even in low-cost models.

These manufacturers compete closely with each other, which means they try to stay in trend and use advanced modern technologies. And at the same time, all these shipyards have been on the market for a very long time, they have managed to earn the reputation of a reliable partner. Thus, for example, French Jeanneau has been building yachts for over 60 years, and the leading figure of the market, Beneteau this year celebrates its 137th anniversary! Surely, the more eminent is the brand, the more expensive are its products, but we should note that everyone has the boats in the budget segment.

Many classic models from Bavaria and Hanse have been produced by these brands for over 10 years. Indeed, they regularly undergo restyling and get some new equipment, but still, they are based on the solutions tested by time and nautical miles and they are so loved by yachtsmen.

So let’s get straight to our list.
