Build a yacht

Designing and building a superyacht is the ultimate dream for many prospective yacht Owners. Fraser is a leading new build and refit specialist, combining the technical expertise of a team of experienced project managers, with the yachting knowledge of the world’s number one yacht brokerage, Fraser. This team will expertly guide you through every stage of the build process until you receive your dream yacht.

Working with You

Our brokers and project managers have extensive knowledge of the builders’ market worldwide and our decades of experience enable us to accurately negotiate the contracts and monitor each specific stage of the construction whilst still working hand-in-hand with you, your Captain, the designer and the shipyard. You will have a dedicated project manager who will be your representative at the shipyard and ensure that everything is built to your exact requirements. They will also provide clear and transparent reporting on a regular basis so that you are kept informed every step of the way.

Project Management

Whether you are building a new yacht or having a refit on an existing vessel, your Project Manager will always be on hand to act as your intermediary between the various different parties. This liaison aims to ensure that every element of your project is handled efficiently and to the highest standards, that all your needs are met and that any impacts on the cost or schedule are minimised. Your project manager will take care of the building process up to acceptance of the vessel, preparation for the operational life of the yacht and possible issues during your guarantee period.

Invaluable Expertise & Advice

No matter how detailed the issue, we’ll have the experts and advice you need, including naval architects and noise and vibration specialists as well as experts in paint applications, engine room layout, interior design, entertainment systems, navionics, steel handling and aluminum and composite construction. We will also advise you on the flag of registration, classification and other regulatory aspects of your yacht to make sure that you choose the system best suited for your requirements.
