Buying a Superyacht to Refit
Shipyards around the world specialise in the yacht refit process, which can give an existing yacht an entirely new identity both quickly and cost-effectively.
Some buyers are interested in customising a yacht but do not want to wait several years or pay the financial premiums that come with building a custom yacht from scratch. In this case, an ideal solution can be a brokerage yacht that is purchased with a yacht refit in mind. Shipyards around the world specialise in the superyacht refit process, which can give an existing yacht an entirely new identity both quickly and cost-effectively.
Yacht refit options range from minimal to massive. Some owners simply want to change the colours of curtains and carpeting, while others want to strip a yacht down to the bare hull and completely rebuild the systems, engines, and interior. Just about anything is possible with a superyacht refit, including adding entirely new decks and overall length extensions. In most cases, even the most extensive yacht refits take less time and are less expensive than purchasing a new construction build—while still allowing total customisation within the brokerage yacht’s hull structure.
REFIT YOUR YACHT
Purchasing a yacht with refit in mind requires a different set of criteria than purchasing a brokerage yacht for immediate use. Our experts at YPI can connect you with leading naval architects and interior designers to help you envision the possibilities for any yacht on the brokerage market. In some cases, a yacht that seems undesirable as-is can become a wonderful value as a refit prospect. What some would-be buyers see as an ill-designed master suite, our team can help you envision and refit as the ideal enclave of rest and relaxation.
