signs you're addicted to superyacht building

The surest sign of a superyacht-building addiction is one that is all too familiar to many owners. Picture the scene: you’re enjoying the launch party for your new yacht, it’s all very exciting and wonderful, Champagne and confetti as far as the eye can see. On the outside you’re beaming with pride, but inside secretly you’re thinking: “Next time we’ll try…”

Whether it’s adding more decks, experimenting with a new engine configuration or going larger and joining the ranks of the Top 200 largest yachts in the world, if as soon as you’re done with one yacht, you’re already dreaming of the next one – perhaps before that first yacht has even hit the water – you’re probably addicted to building superyachts.

You have your captain on speed dial

signs you're addicted to superyacht building

Your captain is number one on your speed dial. Or maybe it’s your designer, project manager or all three. If you’re a hands-on owner, there’s a good chance you’ve had more deep and meaningful conversations with your yacht’s designers and your build captain recently than most of your friends – and maybe your own family.

Perhaps you look to your captain for his views on ideal superyacht design. And if it’s a captain or designer you’ve been working with a long time on multiple projects, chances are they know you better than some of your friends and family do and can anticipate your wishes and deftly communicate these to the yard.

If you have a very close and nearly psychic connection with anyone on your build team, you’re probably addicted to building superyachts.

You dream in general arrangements

signs you're addicted to superyacht building

If all of your free time is spent thinking about yachts – décor, best layouts for a yacht and why you should customise your yacht tender – there’s a good chance you’re in the midst of a custom yacht build. Your iPad is full of pictures of yacht interiors, you have a folder full of torn-out pages of Boat International and your brain is swimming with ideas non-stop.

If you wake up in the night dreaming about general arrangements, you might be addicted to building superyachts.
