THE SKY’S THE LIMIT

VISION

A custom-built superyacht is not usually an impulse purchase. The desire to commission one’s own yacht is usually reached over time, informed by the experience of owning, chartering and spending time on friends’ yachts. The ALTINEL new construction team has the commercial, technical and market insight to help you turn a wish-list into a brief, to define what are the must-have features of your yacht, based on the way you intend to use her. We will then prepare a statement of owner’s requirements and assist with a concept design tender against which shipyards can bid.

CHOICE

In a market where pedigree matters, the ALTINEL new construction team is highly regarded and valued by major shipyards and yacht designers worldwide. We are also continually making new connections with emerging facilities as far afield as Chile and China as they enter the market, continuously evaluating their capacity to meet the needs of our clients. This means we can offer impartial advice on where to build and which designer to choose, validating the information supplied and analysing responses to a competitive tender.

CONTRACT

Once a shipyard has been selected, we are able to help with drawing up the detailed specifications and general arrangement plan against which the contract will be agreed. We have a sound technical understanding of issues such as excessive noise and vibration or delayed delivery, which might result in liquidated damages. Based on a realistic assessment of where the risks lie, for both owners and shipyards, we can negotiate fair and equitable contracts.

DESIGN

At the design stage, ALTINEL technical experts work closely with the yard and interior designer to ensure that designs meet the appropriate technical and legal requirements. It is our role to represent the owner’s vision and interests throughout, and to consult closely with the owner where any changes are required in order to comply with the complexities of changing international legislation. The ALTINEL team is regularly in dialogue with the classification societies, flag states and governing regulatory bodies, constantly road-testing the best compliancy solutions.

BUILD

Throughout the construction phase, the ALTINEL new construction team will advise on scheduling, supervise the build, accompany clients on site visits, make regular progress reports, and review and approve the shipyard’s supply chain on the owner’s behalf. We are also on hand to resolve any technical difficulties with the design or build, including any changes to the specification that may arise, for example when the relevant regulations change. With our own marine engineers in-house, we are able to complement the shipyard’s own resources at any time to help reduce the risk of delays to the build.

TRIALS

Sea trials are an essential and thrilling phase in the development of a custom built yacht. They provide the designers, builders and technical team with an opportunity to fine tune the yacht’s systems, and to iron out any ‘snagging’ issues. ALTINEL naval architects and marine engineers play a key role in the sea trial stage, bringing their depth of technical insight to bear in both identifying and resolving any last minute issues. Our awareness of both contractual obligations and regulatory requirements ensures that nothing is missed, and that the yacht realises her full potential.
