Yacht construction

Let us help you bring your dream yacht to life

New yacht construction

Building a new yacht allows yacht owners the unique opportunity to bring their dreams to life. You can create a yacht entirely on your own terms, designed to your exacting needs, specifications and plans of how – and where – you will use it. It’s the chance to have everything you could ever want in a luxury yacht that is created especially for you.

A new build is also a labor of love – a process that requires precision, passion, efficiency and coordination from all who are involved, not least your broker. The team at FGI has many years of new construction experience under our belts. We know what it takes to manage a yacht build project with the utmost care and meticulous attention to detail. Most importantly, we help make the entire build process as easy as possible for our clients, so you can simply revel in the joy of building your dream boat.

Yacht refit

A yacht refit offers a good alternative to new construction, allowing owners to find a yacht for sale on the brokerage market and make it their own. There are many previously owned yachts that have excellent bones and simply need a little love to make them shine like new. This could include a more extensive rebuild, for the owner who enjoys a project, or a much simpler refresh of the interior design to fit your style preferences and make the yacht truly your own.

The new build process

The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” can definitely apply to yacht purchase. Of course, you should keep your aesthetic preferences in mind and communicate these to your broker, but don’t be afraid to check out other yachts your broker recommends – the amenities found on board might just surprise you and make you glad you had a look.
