New Construction

THE VISION

  • Create a design brief and preliminary specification of your dream yacht with your YPI broker and our experienced team of construction experts.
  • Once the brief has been created, we approach designers to provide a concept and builders are assessed to decide the most suitable match for the project.
  • After concepts are agreed and the requirements outlined, a contract is drawn up and signed between the owner and the builder. Specific standards and criteria are defined for the completed yacht.
  • Before construction starts, the design process can take up to a year for a fully custom superyacht, to ensure minimal costly change orders at a later stage.

THE BUILD

  • The duration of the build depends on the complexity, size and degree of customisation of your project.
  • Close monitoring from your YPI broker and construction management team alongside your own representatives or build captain will ensure things keep on track both for time and budget.
  • During the build, the YPI construction management team can assist with commissioning equipment and assessing its performance.

LAUNCH & SEA TRIALS

  • Splash! Your yacht is put in the water for the first time, having taken form and nearing delivery.
  • The superstructure is in place and the interior fit-out almost complete.
  • The technical systems start to be put through their paces. The YPI team is on hand to ensure your new yacht will be up to standard, from the initial, less rigorous testing in the harbour to the full sea trials.
  • Testing of maximum speed, noise, vibration and technical equipment will ensure your project meets its contractual requirements.
  • The yacht is put in the water for the first time.
  • YPI Crew will work with your captain and engineer to build a fantastic crew that matches your new dream yacht in the months leading up to the delivery.

THE HANDOVER

  • Once sea trials are passed, the final steps are taken before delivery.
  • The YPI construction management team will work with your captain and engineer to assess warrantees and check inventories are complete.
  • The YPI Management team can work with your departmental heads to create comprehensive yet straightforward operating manuals and protocols.
  • Our YPI Management team continues to support your crew throughout the life of the superyacht, offering support and assistance whenever needed.
