Which of superyacht brands is the best?

If you want to buy a yacht and struggle to choose shipyard, you are not alone.

There are so many yacht brands globally that the choice can be daunting.

How to not get lost on your journey to buy the best superyacht?

Following steps will help you narrow down your options:

Superyachts moored in croatia

1. Choose yacht type

Do you like motor yachts, sailing yachts, or catamarans most? Yacht builders typically specialise in one of these yacht types. By choosing the yacht type you will narrow down yacht brand options considerably.

2. Choose yacht size

Some shipyards focus on large superyachts, while others master the smaller and medium size segment.  Narrow down your list again by leaving only brands with proven delivery history in the particular yacht size segment that you are after.

3. Choose your favorite feel and look

Browse through websites of yacht builders that we provided in this Comprehensive List of Yacht Brands, and bookmark your favorites. Which brands look most appealing to you by design and style?

4. Contact shipyards or brokers

There is nothing better then trying out yachts yourself and testing them live! Make appointments with shipyards, contact an experienced broker, or book a similar yacht for charter. Ideally you want to get some practical experience with yachts of your brand of choice, before you buy one.

5. Choose which superyacht brand is best for you

There is nothing like the only best superyacht brand worldwide. There are different market leaders in every yacht type and size segment. 

The most important is which brand fits you, your family situation and your taste best.

Narrow down your list again, pick 3-4 top brands, contact them and compare their offers. Ask & answer questions.

The superyacht brand you finally choose should meet your expectations of design, quality, technical specifications and production times.

Last but not least, personal connections with shipyard representatives should fit. Especially if you are commissioning a newbuilt yacht, you will be working with the shipyard for a long time.

Yacht purchase should be a fun adventure, not a hassle!

Once you found the best fit, you also found the builder of your new yacht. Сongratulations!
