Brand new yachts built on speculation:

We are proud to present the opportunities for brand new boats available for sale with handover in a reasonable time. 
We explain the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing a yacht under construction.

Q: Why any buyer should consider a yacht started on speculation? 

A: When the buyer chooses to enter the contract for a yacht that a builder starts building on his own, then three important factors come into play:

  • Time - the waiting time is less compared to when a builder starts building a yacht from scratch.
    As a rule, the larger the boat, the longer is the waiting time. On average, a buyer of a 40m boat waits two years or even more. If the yacht is 50m/164 ft, this time is three years. That is the reason why the most reputable shipbuilders start building boats ‘on speculation’. That would mean that you can enter the sales contract of the vessel in an advanced stage of construction and get it in a few months, not years. 
  • Proven design and seaworthiness - builders choose proven naval platforms, so the future owner knows how the boat will look like and behave.
  • Financial assurance - building a yacht without a client means that the builder invests its own money in the project. Only the brands that are strong financially can allow starting a yacht ‘on spec’. When you sign the contract for a boat partially built, you can be confident that the yard will deliver it on time. 

Q: OK, it all looks good, so what is the catch (compromise) here? 

A: The possible downside of buying a boat started on speculation is that when you acquire a yacht that was decided by a builder you don’t have complete freedom to change the exterior and the machinery onboard.

If you engage in an early stage, usually, you can make changes to the interior.

Q: What builders build boats on speculation? 

A: Financially sound yards, e.g. Amels/Damen, Benetti, Heesen, Sanlorenzo, Mangusta, Tankoa, Baglietto, all have excellent projects in portfolios. These shipyards can start building yachts that a buyer can get in a short time.

Treat yourself to a splendid selection of yachts hand-picked for you by Romeo United Yachts.
