Storytelling sits at the heart of any refit project. It’s a meeting of two boats, two journeys. In other words, the before and after. But it’s what happens in the middle that truly matters. Refit is nothing without good planning. So put together a team that has all bases covered is imperative.
Refits offer owners a multitude of benefits; shorter build times, proven engineered platforms and reduced costs. But refits also harbor pitfalls and blind spots. This is why chartering multiple yachts before buying one for refit is highly recommended. Once you’ve bought, use your boat in its current form for at least a year. Aside from having fun out at sea, you’ll be better equipped to understand what you’re looking for. This means that you are able to provide a clear brief.
