New Yacht Construction

We have experience working with naval architects,  builders and owner's reps to develop new yacht designs for custom and semi-custom yachts. We can provide the yacht design expertise to see your project through from concept to completion. We will work closely with you and the entire design-build team to successfully execute a custom and tailored design that meets your unique style, timeframe and budget. Our design process is carefully though through, our personalized approach ensures that we understand your vision, and our continued presence throughout the construction phases ensures that your vision is carried out and the final product renders the best results. 

The Design Process

Building a new yacht or refitting your current one is a big undertaking. Working with professionals such as your naval architect, interior designer, project manager, engineer and shipbuilder should make the process less burdensome for you. We strongly believe in the collaboration process between ourselves, our client, the naval architect and builder. From inception to completion we play an active role in the design-build process, from conceptual design through construction administration.
