Buy or build?

Whether you buy an existing superyacht or commission a large new build, both are rewarding experiences if managed properly.

Each process offers certain advantages over the other, but the conclusion is always a very happy new Owner, which we find remains constant!

Owning a yacht is expensive and ideally the cost of a yacht should remain in the region of 5–10% of the available wealth. For those who are in the luxurious position to have the necessary financial power, a yacht is the ultimate escape. Currently, the existing yacht market is a buyer’s market, clients see the advantage of buying existing yachts or projects at attractive prices.

Today, a new build can offer huge rewards. Shipyards have available capacity and the yacht construction industry as a whole is eager for new projects. As never before, designers have exciting visualisation possibilities. Supported by years of experience and vast knowledge, new ideas and technologies are preparing the path into the future. With the right team, building your dream yacht is tremendous fun and immensely satisfying.
