Disappointing returns? 

No depreciation? Low residual value?
Many investors choose real estate as a safe haven for returns and wealth building. For instance, by renting or selling vacation homes, apartments, and other projects. No matter how low the risk in real estate may be, that risk can be even lower, and the returns significantly higher. How? Welcome aboard OLAV BOATS. We are ready to set sail, just like you.

The Gangway to a Solid Investment

What we do is completely take the weight off your shoulders, whether you are a private or business investor, with the purchase and rental of houseboats, better known as a luxurious form of a houseboat. As an experienced player in the recreation industry, we seek tourist hotspots that want to do business with us, ensuring the houseboat yields the most return. The purchase of this highly valuable boat ensures a low risk, and the people who enjoy a stay at a hotspot like the Frisian lakes or the Weerribben provide you with a return of up to 8 to 10%!

You don't want to miss this boat

So why invest in an OLAV Houseboat:

OLAV's boats come with all the comforts: bathroom, kitchen, furniture, good beds, heating, etc. The boats are suitable for extended rentals. These boats are only placed at carefully selected top locations in the Netherlands and abroad by OLAV BOATS BV. Locations that already have a proven tourist attraction, such as the Frisian lakes or the Weerribben, the Veluwemeer, Reeuwijkse plassen, Loosdrechtse plassen, etc. Often, the tourist appeal has already been proven by the recreation company that operates these boats.

An average fully furnished and rentable Houseboat costs € 129,000 excluding VAT, which can be rented out for a longer period than a vacation home. So your earnings are quickly around € 23,000. Since maintenance, operating costs, and taxes for a houseboat are significantly lower, you can take home more. Since a boat has an average lifespan of about 40 years, we find it fair to also depreciate this boat. We do this in the first 20 years with a residual value of 50%. Your earnings, including this depreciation, quickly range between € 9,000 and  € 12,000 per year, which means that this generates a net return of 8 to 10% (including depreciation) on an investment of  € 129,000. After 10 years, you have already recouped your investment, and from year 10, your return goes up to 100%. 

So you won't fall on hard times!
