Custom yachts are the ultimate expression of an owner’s personality, desires, and demands. With a custom build, the only limitation placed on the owner is imagination.

Top shipyards around the world vie for the opportunity not only to satisfy an owner’s every wish, but also to achieve new standards of technology and construction. With a custom yacht, literally anything is possible.

Building Your Custom Yachts

Unlike series yachts, which can often be ordered and delivered within a single year’s time, a custom yacht is built through a multiyear process of design and construction. Many owners enjoy these two to three years as much as yacht ownership itself, putting their personal stamp on every nook and cranny of the finished product.
Leading designers first create sketches that are revised again and again, until every detail in the owner’s imagination is an integral part of the yacht’s design. Construction experts then weigh in before the build commences to ensure that the yacht will be crafted to the highest possible standard. The owner’s captain or personal project manager is constantly on hand to ensure that every person involved is working in harmony to achieve the owner’s wishes.

Custom Superyachts

Then, construction begins. Many owners make multiple visits to the shipyard to personally oversee the build’s progress, request change orders, and walk through their dream yacht as it comes to life. The experience can be awe-inspiring, with dozens of highly trained craftsmen working in tandem to achieve the owner’s vision. Steel and aluminium skeletons give way to the heartbeats of wiring and engines, and then the decor comes to life with exotic woodwork, fine marbles, or whatever other materials the owner has selected.

Christening Your Custom Superyacht

When a custom yacht is christened, the owner truly feels as though he knows his yacht from the inside out. It is, in every way, a reflection of him—a testament to what he has been able to envision as a key player in the evolution of the yachting industry itself.
