PERFORMANCE YACHTS

Performance Yachts offers a uniquely fresh and exciting concept in personalised yacht design and build.

Built using the most advanced lightweight materials, they incorporate the latest state-of-the-art equipment throughout and with accommodation featuring customised décor by leading interior design specialists, no expense has been spared and no detail overlooked in the quest to provide the ultimate blend of performance, style and comfort.

And yet because Performance Yachts has none of the high marketing and administrative overheads incurred by the larger production brands, and thanks also to exclusive arrangements with builders and suppliers, it is possible to deliver the PY range with state-of-the art equipment and the benefit of extended warranties and support at prices that reflect the true cost of building boats.

Performance Yachts adds value for its clients; with the yachts having very high specifications as standard and, in the case of yachts like the new PY-100, designs and tooling that are already in place.

This considerably reduces the lead times normally associated with semi custom builds but retains the ability for owners to personalise their individual boats.
