Invest in your future
Best of both worlds
Nothing quite beats the feeling of standing at the wheel, helming your own boat in a bracing wind warmed by the sun. Whether sailing purely for relaxation or aiming to cross the finish line in style, make the most of our involvement in the cruiser and racer markets as well as the J-Class revival.
Building on our experience in commercial shipping, fast planing motoryachts and semi- or full-displacement boats, we would welcome the chance to transform your custom design into reality. Tap into our wide range of in-house expertise across all key boatbuilding disciplines and let’s brainstorm how your ideal motoryacht will look and feel.
Relationships that last
Once a member of the AYB fleet, always a member of the family. Wherever you choose to cruise we’re on hand to offer service and support, including via our network of partners around the world.
We will be pleased to set up a bespoke service and maintenance programme so you can rest assured that your pristine new yacht stays in tip-top condition.
