Choosing the right team and shipyard
We at SYOG believe that true design will overcome any mass market preconceptions and encourage potential new owners to be brave, in any luxury yacht design choice.
As a current or potential superyacht owner at some point you will have dealings with a shipyard. If you decide to commission a new build, you want to ensure that you work with a team of people that understand your vision and can deliver on your dream.
You may be considering a re-build in a bid to increase the value or performance of your yacht, or simply because you want to maintain it and keep it at its best. Alternatively, you might deliberately buy a yacht that needs refitting, taking advantage of the financial benefits behind this approach and putting your stamp on it.
Whatever the reason for your shipyard visit, every yard has its own specialist skills and expertise. Here SYOG explores the vast number of shipyards available to help you begin your superyacht journey, and understand the process and your involvement.
Choosing the right shipyard
There are already a large number of shipyards available around the globe and the figure is growing steadily. There are pros and cons linked to all shipyards, but the key to a successful new build or refit project is having an extensive and detailed knowledge of the market and the individual shipyards. SYOG can help you match your personal needs with exactly the right shortlist of shipyards.
A refit, re-build or new-build project relies on the collaboration between owner, captain, shipyard, yacht designer and naval architect and for the project to be a success, all parties will have buy into your dream.
