Yacht Refit Management Services

Dismantling a previously built yacht and discovering the uncompleted, worn out, decayed, corroded, and other surprise, and then having to decide what can remain or be used again versus replacement can certainly be daunting to a yacht builder and certainly a taxing experience for the yacht owner. Additionally, it becomes a further challenge when a budget and completion date have been set that are unaware of these undiscovered projects.

At this point, there is no one better to use than a qualified and experienced yacht builder and operator. Just as you would not hire a real estate broker to supervise your house renovation, you don’t want a yacht broker or yacht management company to oversee a refit. Yacht Refit Management is a qualified and proven yacht refit management company who knows the efficient use of boat yard labor along with the responsible and careful use of an yacht owner’s funds. Yacht Refit Management knows structure requirements, material selection, and equipment limitations, and we make the right decisions in determining what is necessary to leave that will not reduce durability and when to replace items that will improve operation and enhance the value of a yacht. Successful refit work requires more knowledge and experience than new construction work, and lacking this knowledge encourages unnecessary extravagance and waste in both time, materials, and cost.


Yacht Refit Management vs New Build Management

Knowledge and experience in how the original structure of the yacht was put together, along with experience in yacht construction methods, yacht materials, yacht design, equipment, yacht systems and the use, type, and amount of labor to use in dismantling and reconstruction is an absolute requirement. New yacht construction provides plans that are used to calculate these resources. However, the nature of a refit does not initially provide any accurate representations of these, and contrary to new yacht construction, a refit involves going backwards before going forwards. How it all contributes to the final expected appearance and operation of a yacht is inspired, directed, and managed by Yacht Refit Management with a proven cost effective and commonsense requirement to employ for a successful refit.


Yacht Refit Management’s Project Management

Yacht Refit Management does not provide smart guesses, abbreviate estimates, or prepare intimidating quotes. Hands on experience and knowledge are both absolutely paramount and no computer program, flow chart, or formula can provide a substitution.  Only when the construction begins to move forward can true plans, calculations, schedules, budgets, predictions and promises that can be relied upon, be made. Yacht Refit Management has a proven track record with the management of successful refits with results that have met both time and budget constraints. Our experience in the yacht refit market has shown us that improving a yacht’s size, systems, operation, or appearance does not necessarily reflect in an improved market value. Therefore, we know it is smart to look at projected costs and perceived values before, during, and after any proposed refit work, attempting to eliminate any late surprises.


Yacht Refit Management delivers a wide range of experience, qualifications, and results in the project management of yacht refit and new yacht construction, yacht repairs and yacht operation on all types of yachts. Yacht Refit Management offers yacht project management services to owners, brokers, designers, and captains.
