Imperial’s recent construction portfolio features some of the largest and most advanced superyachts the world has ever seen. Every construction project Imperial undertakes, from 30m to 130m+ vessels, receives the same unstinting attention and dedication from our integrated network of specialist professionals. A superyacht is a supreme expression of the boat builder’s art. Imperials relationships with the industry’s most iconic designers are central to the creation of some of the finest superyachts in the world. The calibre of Imperial’s design collaborators enables us to create customised solutions for each new client. As superyachts become larger and discussions go beyond performance, sleeping capacity, style, materials and applications toward technical requests without precedent in superyacht design. The interaction between client, designer and builder helps flex the boundaries of what can be achieved and inspires a better result.
Imperial has played a major role in the construction of some of the world’s most celebrated superyachts and scooped some of the industry’s most prestigious accolades along the way. With our all-consuming dedication to the aspirations of the individual and an order book defined by ever more ambitious projects, our reputation for groundbreaking designs continues to set us apart.
Imperial works with some of the finest shipyards in the world. By deploying a team of experienced professionals directly at the shipyard to oversee each construction project, we have generated some truly landmark superyachts. We are proud to be behind the construction of superyachts like FLYING FOX (Lürssen 136m), LANA (Benetti 107m), AMADEA (Lürssen 106.1m), the support vessel 6711 (Damen 67m), Project 783 (Nobiskrug 73.15m) RoMEA (Abeking & Rasmussen 81.1m).
Part of this success comes from hands-on commitment of our personnel. Each new project is allocated a Project Manager to supervise construction on a day-to-day basis. Depending on the size, they will build the right team and can allocate a Build Engineer, an Electrical & Electronics Engineer and an Interior Quality Manager to implement each detail of the internal fit-out.
At the heart of every new build project is a set of key decisions. Does the client intend to cross the Atlantic or island-hop among the tightly packed archipelagos of the Mediterranean? What about the performance, the sleeping capacity and his priorities for the living spaces?
With the assistance of Imperial’s dedicated team, the Client will have worked through these central questions. Imperial will advise the designer and builder best suited to the Owners needs and assemble a highly experienced team to help manage and complete his dream project.
Imperial protects the Owner’s interests by acting both as the Construction Manager and the Owner’s Representative. Each new project is allocated a set of designated professionals for the whole construction period:
There is a reason why Imperial’s loyal clients believe in our 24/7 dedication to each project. Throughout the entire process, Imperial’s different teams keep a tight grip on the quality, the timeline and the expenses to ensure that all elements of the build surpass the client’s expectations. We are proud to have delivered most of our new build projects within the strict deadline with control on all resources during the entire duration of the construction.
