hqdefaultQuestion of the Week

Singapore-based Anarchist “Laurent” asks a question that’s on a lot of our minds at one time or another.  To find answers or give them, hit the thread.

Let’s say that you want to build a boat (or more accurately, get a boat built) to a design/concept that you cannot find in normal sailboat production.  What you want is off-the-charts enough that there’s nothing out there that’s even close to it.  At this stage, you already understand that resale value of what you want will be close to zero…and you don’t care. You have some engineering background but you are no yacht designer, so it’s time to get help from a pro. But how?

How do you select a yacht designer?

How do you approach him? Do you just email? “Hi, I want you to design a boat for me, can we talk?”

How do you frame a contract/deal so all parties are happy? How do you define the “deliverables” (some sets of drawings could be considered “enough” for the designer, where you are expecting fully detailed construction drawings, etc.)

Are there “predefined/preformated contractual agreements for yacht design?

How do you manage the timeline?  How do you know you are not getting ripped off?

If anyone could share their experience, it would be a big help.  Without naming names, if you do not want to…

This is about EXPERIENCE.  If you’ve never been through part or all of the process, go away.
