Our process

Keeping track


Yard selection

Selecting the right shipyard is the first, critical step in overseeing a custom yacht project. It begins by preparing a comprehensive bid package with your client, detailing project requirements. This initiates the Request for Quotation (RFQ) phase, where shipyard capabilities are assessed and responses are evaluated.

At VMG Yachtbuilders, we thoroughly evaluate each bid, considering costs, timelines, and project specifics. Upon selecting VMG Yachtbuilders as the preferred shipyard, we collaborate to develop a final specification, ensuring alignment with your client’s vision.

This marks the beginning of transforming dreams into reality. With VMG Yachtbuilders, you can trust that every detail is carefully considered to match your client’s aspirations. With a reputation for excellence and a track record of delivering exceptional vessels, VMG Yachtbuilders stands out as the ideal choice for professionals seeking to collaborate on custom yacht projects.

Building process

With preparations complete, the building process starts, marking the beginning of the transformation of your client’s vision into reality. Led by our team of skilled craftsmen and technicians, each step of the construction process is executed with precision and expertise.

The building process starts with the foundational step of crafting the hull. For an aluminum hull, this phase is entrusted to the expertise of our sister company Super Duplex Hulls (SDH). SDH excels in constructing robust aluminum hulls with precision and durability. If your client opts for a composite (GRP, carbon) hull, we collaborate with other trusted partners, ensuring tailored expertise to meet specific material preferences.

Once the hull is completed, it is transported to one of our yacht painting partners. The appropriate yacht painter is selected based on size, schedule, and availability. They fill and sand the hull to perfection, applying primer and, if necessary, a show coat according to specifications. Any final imperfections are smoothed out before applying the color coat and optional clear coat. All our partners adhere to the highest standards and exclusively use top-quality materials.

During the hull construction, the interior takes shape as we utilize CNC to mill a mold of the boat. This advanced technique allows for the early formation of the interior details, creating a perfect blend of shape and functionality.

Technical skills are showcased when the technical schemes come to life. From propulsion systems to onboard electronics, our team executes installations with precision, ensuring optimal performance and functionality for your client’s new yacht.

From crafting the hull to installing technical systems and finishing the interior, our team works diligently to bring your client’s dream yacht to life. Throughout the process, we maintain open communication, providing regular updates and addressing any concerns to ensure a smooth experience.

Change orders

During the process insights can change, new technology becomes available or decisions are made for more jobs. After being briefed we will supply you or client with a Change Order Form that states consequences in terms of costs, time and weight if of any importance. We will implement the change order in the process as soon as it’s signed.


Commissioning & Testing

As the building process approaches completion, one of the final steps is Commissioning & Testing. Collaborate closely with our team to oversee the installation and fine-tuning of all systems, to ensure they function optimally. Rigorous testing follows, subjecting every aspect of the yacht to thorough investigation to guarantee performance and safety.

Commissioning and testing prepare for smooth delivery and acceptance by your client.


Delivery and Acceptance

The culmination of the project is the delivery and acceptance phase, where your client’s dream yacht is officially handed over. Our team coordinates the final inspection and walkthrough with you, ensuring that every detail meets your client’s specifications and expectations. With the yacht ready for new adventures, we celebrate the successful completion of the project and the beginning of unforgettable journeys on the open sea.


Warranty and Maintenance

Even after delivery, our commitment to your client’s satisfaction continues. Our comprehensive warranty and maintenance programs provide peace of mind, ensuring ongoing support and assistance to maintain the yacht’s peak performance and value for years to come.

At VMG Yachtbuilders, we understand the unique needs and expectations of professionals in the yacht industry. With our expertise, dedication, and unwavering commitment to excellence, we are proud to be your partner in realizing your client’s dreams of owning a custom-built yacht.
