The process of designing and building a custom yacht is the ultimate dream for the world’s most discerning yachting enthusiasts. From state-of-the-art sailing yachts designed for high-speed racing, exclusive superyachts ideal for cruising blue water havens, or cutting-edge ocean explorers for those wishing to cruise unchartered waters, a custom yacht offers total creativity and freedom down to the smallest detail.
With low inventory due to unprecedented yacht sales post-COVID, the demand for bespoke yachts has never been greater. In fact, the world’s most experienced custom yacht builders have reported exceptionally high demand for these advanced superyachts.
The yacht construction process involves many important decisions as an owner, so working closely with a reputable luxury yacht builder will be essential to ensure things run smoothly, without any delays or additional costs. Discover the joys of owning a custom yacht below.
The main benefit of a bespoke yacht is the element of personalisation it offers. Be it an entirely unique hull design or adding the finest amenities, the possibilities are endless with a custom yacht.
Building a custom yacht from bow to stern means understanding and grasping the owner’s lifestyle through an exquisitely tailored approach and exceptional craftsmanship. For those who seek to keep up with their wellness routine while at sea, state-of-the-art luxury spas, fitness areas, yoga and meditation studios, hot tubs, and infinity swimming pools are hugely popular.
For those who like to entertain and are looking to use their custom yacht for large group gatherings, open-plan saloons, cinemas, sports courts, spacious seating and dining areas, as well as spacious beach clubs, an extra-large tender garage, and the latest water toys are superb options.
Yacht owners can even get creative with their custom yacht’s interiors, allowing them to integrate their own choice of materials, shapes, textures, and furnishings into the design. From hand-picked artwork and digital wallpapers to bedroom Jacuzzis and dressing rooms, a luxury yacht builder can incorporate your most niche requests in order to make you feel right at home on the water.
Yacht owners may also want to reduce their carbon footprint by adding the latest eco-friendly nautical technology, including solar panels, diesel-electric propulsion systems, wastewater recovery systems and recyclable resin decks.
A new build yacht ensures stress-free cruising without previous damage or wear and tear to major equipment, including engines, cruising technology, tenders, and toys.
A custom yacht also allows yacht owners to create their own personal sanctuary at sea with everything required to make themselves feel at home. In a post-COVID era, a luxury yacht offers a private and safe haven, with all the amenities that rival the world’s most luxurious resorts. Escape to the world’s most sought-after blue water havens or charter a path unknown away from the madding crowd.
