The answers are many, and they are important for any would-be yacht owner to consider carefully before building a yacht. The main reason to build a luxury yacht versus buying is complete control over the finished product. While a superyacht purchased on the brokerage market can be retrofitted and modernized, it is still an existing hull with particular specifications. A new yacht construction project has no such limitations. The new owner is never at the mercy of decisions made by the previous boat owner, decisions sometimes made many years ago, when current options were simply unavailable.
To guide you all along the yacht newbuilding process, BRS has access to a team of experts to carry out a wide range of consultancy work through its affiliate Yachting Partners International (YPI).
