Hi all, I know firstly that property investing is largely carried out for capital gains so a boat would not give me this advantage as the depreciate like a rock but if I looked at it as a holiday let type business as in people could rent the boat as a holiday home and I could get to use it for maybe a month of the year, could I pick up the same benefits? This would simply be using the rent to offset costs but it would mean that mooring fee's, renovations etc could all be claimed as a tax deduction or at least a portion of it. This idea came to me from a boating podcast I listen to where one lady in the UK ran a small but succesful business this way. She was saying that replacement linen etc would all be tax deductible if the boat was rented out. In her example the boats she rented out were mostly used as floating apartments in marina's and the boat was not used to travel, simply it stayed in the marina and was used as alternantive accomodation. I love boating so would happily rent out a boat if it meant that I could pick up the usual benefits of property ownership. Thoughts and mocking welcome, give me your best shots. Happy Wednesday people.
