Yachting provides the ultimate in privacy, freedom and the connection to the sea. A yacht is generally considered to be a superyacht after 24 metres and larger, but the superyacht experience isn’t just about getting a larger yacht. Owning a superyacht means stepping up in the world of yachting another level in style, sophistication, service and personalisation. Superyachts will have more room for crew, so owners and guests can be well looked after.
The joy of buying and building superyacht
A superyacht also gives the owner a chance to have a yacht is customised to their every desire, from the performance capabilities to the exact number of staterooms needed. It’s the chance to have a yacht that is large enough to entertain large groups of friends and bring the entire family for overnight stays. And it’s a chance to have a yacht that will turn heads in the harbour for its size or unique details.
Building a new superyacht is a fun experience, allowing the owner to be as involved as they would like to be, perhaps having a hand in selecting all the materials on board to truly make the yacht a one-of-a-kind creation. You can create the ultimate yacht where you and your loved ones will live long lasting memories.
Superyacht buying advice
Simpson Marine’s Superyacht Division helps make the big task of buying or building a new superyacht an easy process. We will guide you every step of the way, helping you determine the right type of yacht, designer and builder.
The first step is deciding your brief for the yacht, and Simpson Marine’s expert team can help you determine exactly what is most important to you in a new yacht: from the number of staterooms to the amenities you desire to how long you are willing to wait for delivery.
Superyachts come in many different forms, from production yachts to fully custom projects. The benefits of a production yacht is that they share a proven hull form and can be delivered quickly. A semi-custom yacht can be an ideal midway point, with each yacht in a series sharing the same hull and technical platform so it’s built quickly, but the personalisations can be greater, so each yacht is unique when you step on board.
For a yacht that is truly your own, a fully custom yacht can be designed from the keel up that is bespoke to the owner’s needs, from the performance to the interior details. Often a builder will start a yacht ‘on spec’, so even a semi-custom or custom yacht can be ready quickly. We have excellent relationships with the top builders and designers in the world and can help you select who to work with.
What is superyacht charter and management
Many owners will opt to put their superyacht in a charter programme so their yacht can be put to good use when they are not on board. Owners can make money by putting their yacht in a charter programme, with the income that can go towards maintaining the vessel so it “pays for itself” over time. Other benefits of offering a yacht for charter is keeping the crew busy and in the best form for when the owner steps on board. Simpson Marine will handle every aspect of marketing and managing a charter yacht, so the owner doesn’t have to do anything but reap the rewards.
Simpson Marine’s Superyacht Division can also manage your superyacht so every minute an owner is on board is spent enjoying the yacht rather than worrying over any details. We can help you find the top crew members, provision the vessel and arrange maintenance. We take care of everything on the to-do list, giving the owner more time to enjoy the yacht with their family and friends.
