Refit is a good alternative to construction. Both new constructions and refits can fulfil an Owner's wish for a yacht that matches their personal requirements and vision. Sometimes, a refit is the only option, even if the work required is similar to that of a new construction.
It often makes perfect sense to have your own yacht refitted or to buy a top-class second-hand yacht and convert it to suit your needs. The biggest challenge is defining a refit programme that covers all situations. This is where our project management team's technical competence and experience make a decisive difference. Our capacity is proven in dealing with the extra complexity of major refit projects, where the precise scope of work required is not known at the beginning.
Refit or new build?
Which option you choose will depend on a number of factors, such as:
- financial considerations
- the current market situation
- the time schedule of the chosen boatyards (there is often a waiting list of several years for a new-build yacht to be delivered)
- the type of yacht or a particular yacht (where a new construction or reconstruction is not viable).
