IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SWINGS!
Currency fluctuations happen far more often than people think. This can be gradual and over a relatively long period of time, or very sudden and sharp. Currency swings are driven by a multitude of factors including country specific macro-economics, one off or unforseen events (Brexit, pandemics, weather, wars) or simply the result of trading activity.
Any of which can drastically affect the final price you pay for a yacht as the market may have moved against you during the period from when you signed the purchase contract to the time of stage payments and final balance payment.
It is important to remember that YOPTION$ enable you to protect yourself when the market moves against you and benefit when the market moves in your favour.
