The yachting industry has seen a wild past couple of years, with 2021 proving to be a record year. A major part of this is an increased appetite for yachting and increasing inflation which has created all-time highs not only in the yachting market but in the equities and real estate market. Now, with the rise of interest rates and a shifting economic environment, the yachting market is likely transitioning to a buyer’s market. With the macro-economic environment we currently have today, the US Dollar is on a tear, with the US Dollar Index (DXY) in a strong uptrend, over 16% in the last year. The DXY is essentially a measure of the value of the USD relative to a basket of foreign currencies. This means that the euro has lost value relative to the USD, going from $1.22 a year ago, to $1.04 at the time of writing. This is due to many factors, including the Federal Reserve moving aggressively to tame inflation, stagflation concerns all over the world, and a potential energy crisis in Europe due to the war in Ukraine. All of this means that the euro will likely reach parity with the USD, something that has only been done once in 2002.
