A complete guide to superyacht refit and repair shipyards
When purchasing a superyacht, many owners will not necessarily choose a new-build, instead choosing to refit, rebuild or convert an operational vessel to suit their own tastes and put a unique stamp on it.
Yachting Pages explores the in’s and out’s of the refit shipyard, and looks at some stunning refit and restoration projects, both past and present.
When purchasing an operational superyacht, a new owner is likely to want to refit his or her new investment to suit décor to personal tastes. As such comes the difficult decision on which of the world’s leading facilities to select for refit, conversion or repair. Yachting Pages lists some of the world’s best superyacht refit and repair shipyards.
With more than 300 refit shipyards worldwide, the decision of where, when and why to book a superyacht refit is not an easy one. Yachting Pages explores the world of superyacht refit and repair, from why you need a refit and what the yards offer, to purchasing a yacht for refit over a new construction.
As with a new construction, refitting a superyacht gives the owner a chance to put their own stamp on a vessel. There’s no end to the possibilities for refitting a superyacht, as we see in our five favourite refit projects, which include a former ice-breaker ship and fishing vessel, both transformed into stunning superyachts.
