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 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.
