Buy or Build

There can be a moment in an experienced yacht owner’s life when the dream of having a new yacht built to meet his or her exact needs turns into a realistic concept. This is the beginning of an incredibly exciting, complex and thrilling journey. Brokers at Ocean Independence have a history of advising on the new construction of superyachts that reaches back to the 80s. Our joint record of successful new yacht projects includes yachts of all types, materials and sizes, from small motor yachts to nimble race yachts destined to win regattas; from mid-size to some of the biggest motor and sailing megayachts in the world. We will be on hand to consult throughout the process of evaluating and selecting designers, naval architects, stylists and shipyards. Together with OCEAN Management, we will safeguard to ensure that the technical specification of your yacht and the description of her features is comprehensive and complete. Our global network ensures that we are privy to the latest industry developments, legal changes and marine safety standards. As such, we have a full scope of technical and legislative information to draw on when planning your new yacht. In the last 25 years we have been involved in a large number of shipyard contracts and use our combined experience to achieve the best possible construction agreement. Ocean Management will supervise the construction, and your broker will monitor progress together with them. We remain available to you for shipyard visits and any assistance or advice required, until the yacht is launched and commences her operation – and beyond. Every successful build project is the result of careful planning and good team work. We are expert at both.


Sales Process

Whether you are an experienced yacht owner or a first-time buyer, we will make sure you find the yacht that is right for you and meets each and every one of your requirements. We understand that each client has myriad expectations, and will use each yacht differently. Our buying process is designed to work with you in identifying and securing the right yacht for you. Your expert broker will carry out extensive market research before presenting you with a shortlist of suitable superyachts. You will then discuss which yacht(s) should be investigated in more detail and arrange to visit each potential yacht together. When you are settled on the right yacht, our sales brokers will navigate you towards achieving the best purchase price. They will use their in-depth knowledge of trends in the yachting industry, along with their local insights and hands-on research to provide expert and tailored advice on price and value. Thanks to our global network we are able to present yachts not officially for sale and we will do our best to ensure securing the best market price and safe legal arrangements. Once a price has been agreed, we will draft a sale and purchase agreement that will ensure that the terms of your offer and any other requests are correctly noted in the formal documents. We enjoy sharing our knowledge of this process, but also recognise that some buyers prefer to hand the detail over to us, knowing that our reputation for excellence ensures the best practice and the right outcome.
