The yacht construction process is one of the most satisfying experiences for any individual. Almost anything is possible these days satisfying the imagination beyond belief. Drawings become a reality at the shipyard with every idea visibly coming together in a seamless process. Extraordinary times we live in!

There are many reasons for building your own yacht rather than purchasing second hand from the brokerage market. Multiple options present themselves with the type of yacht that can be built. Yachts are bespoke and in many cases pioneering. From the cutting of steel to the chosen glass ware each owner will realize the dream with the assistance of world class designers and experienced project managers.

Many of the world’s top shipyards will offer the option to customize a series yacht. These yachts have design tested hulls and proven equipment that allow for speedy progress with construction. This option would suit those individuals that seek to reduce the build time and costs involved in yacht design and construction.

Plan the project is the decision stage. Our recommendation is perhaps to first charter one or various yachts of the type or similar type that you would perhaps wish to own. In doing so this will give you a good idea as to what your preferences are as well as a clear indication of your likes and dislikes. Perhaps your friends and family have ideas that you may wish to consider!
