The Imperial Approach


Where everyone else talks about attention to details, Imperial goes beyond this: when we talk about superyacht new construction, we talk above all about the superyacht experience. The main reason our clients constantly work and grow with us is our dedication: assigning a complete team of experienced professionals directly at the selected shipyard; monitoring every single aspect of the construction of each dream project; developing with our clients the perfect spaces, etc. Longstanding partnerships with some of Europe’s finest luxury shipyards have seen Imperial play a major role in the construction of some of the world’s most famous superyachts – and our growing reputation is a direct result of an all-consuming dedication to the aspirations of the individual client.

When Imperial says dedication to every project, this is not a simple word and our experienced owners as future ones achieved the most beautiful superyachts of the decade with our high knowledge of the industry. The construction of the client’s ideal superyacht is of course a very complex process but with Imperial, it is never a logistical inconvenience.  By creating, growing and giving life to each project, our clients already start to feel the Luxury Yachting 360-degree experience.


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? Once the client has worked through these central questions, Imperial will select the designer and builder best suited to his needs and assemble a highly experienced team to help manage and complete his dream project.

Imperial protects the future 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:

  • a Project Manager, based at the chosen yard, to supervise construction on a day-to-day basis and to keep the build on schedule;
  • an Electrical & Electronics Engineer;
  • an Interior Quality Manager to implement internal design and take charge of each detail of the fit-out;
  • a Financial Manager to keep control of finances and to compile regular budget reports for the client;
  • and a Build Captain and Build Engineer to oversee the final stages of construction and to bring the yacht into operation


There is a reason why Imperial’s loyal clients believe in our 24/7 dedication to each project: throughout the entire process, Imperial’s 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 in strict deadline with a crystal-clear control on all ressources during the entire duration of the construction.

Imperial is delighted to work in close collaboration with some of the finest designers and shipyards of the modern age – from the creative and celebrated minds of Espen Øino, Tim Heywood, Laura Sessa, François Zuretti, Terence Disdale, Luca Dini or Mark Berryman; to famed superyacht builders like Lürssen, Nobiskrug, Abeking & Rasmussen, Oceanco or Amels.

The future owner’s personal ambitions will help decide the combination of designer and builder, ensuring the most effective pairing, but whatever kind of yachting he enjoys, he can be rest assured that the people who create his vessel will share Imperial’s passion for superyachts – right down to the last exquisite detail.

The client can be as involved as he likes; He can have full access to the technical elements and a central role in every decision making process, or he can step back and let the Imperial team take care of the finer details. Either way, the client will still receive regular reports to keep you abreast of key developments, including progress with the build, developments with the design, as well as regular financial breakdowns.

Imperial offers a full-package management service encompassing everything required for enjoyable and problem-free yacht ownership. From finance, design and construction, through to the successful delivery of your new superyacht, to crew, charter, marketing and eventual sale – Imperial’s full-spectrum infrastructure is designed to take care of it. All the future owner have to do is relax and enjoy…
