Commercial shipyards are attracting superyacht clients

With wealthy owners getting more and more ambitious, many brokers are finding that commercial yards are an ideal solution to fulfil the desire to create the ultimate yacht.

This year has seen four yachts launched by commercial yards, compared with two last year, while a further five are listed in the 2016 Global Order Book.

Mark Duncan, Group Commercial & Marketing Director at YPI, said: “What is noticeable is the current influx of projects coming in over 90 metres. Clients are also starting to realise the real value commercial shipyards can bring to the table, especially with motor yachts.”

Duncan added that since the final interiors and finishing are often carried out by specialist superyacht providers, the levels of on-board refinement remain exceptional.

Key examples of this in recent years include the 107 metre Ulysses (pictured above) and the 76m explorer yacht Yersin, both of which were launched by yards who had built up their reputation through commercial projects.
