"If you think safety is expensive, try having an accident"
A Superyacht goes through many stages in its life, from the first vision of a dream Superyacht, through to realising the design, the build, delivery and operation; followed by many years of enjoyment for the owner, their family and guests. There are likely to be some repairs along the way and often a refit or rebuild at some point.
Future-proofing your enjoyment
What many Superyacht owners understandably don’t factor into their plans is a contingency for problem solving when things go wrong. When dealing with such a complex feat of design and engineering, there will undoubtedly be some darker times during Superyacht ownership – it can’t all be plain sailing.
It’s not pessimistic to take this view. Both yachting and Superyacht design are positive, exciting, inspiring, adventurous experiences and putting these sorts of contingencies in place simply future-proof the enjoyment of a vessel. Ultimately through a bit of forethought, assessment and planning you can save huge amounts of time, pain and money in the long run.
As unlikely as it sounds, planning for problems and anticipating the negatives can be a positive experience, if all eventualities are built-in at each stage. There are so many factors to consider in a Superyacht build. With many people involved, processes to go through at each stage, so much time spent on designing, project managing and building, let alone the delivery and operation of the Yacht that it’s only pragmatic to assume that something could potentially go awry.
