tenders for an owner and then manage the build through to delivery. The marketplace was confusing, noisy and everyone claimed to offer the best. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of tender and leisure boat builders. Many of these fall far short of their claims and the last thing I wanted to do was let my owner down with anything substandard. I searched for any tender specialists who knew the market in detail and could make recommendations and it turned out there were few, if any, who could help.
Now, Superyacht Tenders and Toys have delivered over 100 tenders to date plus the deepest diving, largest submersible ever delivered to a yacht and we are the leading authority to offer unbiased advice, independent sales and thorough project management from concept to completion. We have a team of project managers overseeing builds, adding value to clients and ensuring the best possible experience. Having been involved in so many builds with so many different manufacturers we have also learnt that there are many advantages to be gained by builders in having us involved. One well-known custom tender builder told us that we add significant value to them as our visits pick up on any issues early in the process and we communicate these to the builder and the owner in the best possible way and this in turn helps the builder to rectify issues or snags and deliver boats on budget and on time. This also saves costly and frustrating warranty issues. The client price is often reduced with our involvement as a result of these savings which is a win-win for everyone.
One of the key things SYTT do is remain independent. This means we are not specifically working with only one or two brands, but can offer all brands. If an owner is after an 8m RIB for example we can offer options from Zodiac, Novurania, Ribeye, Cobra, Pascoe and others to name but a few. This gives the client huge choice in terms of the build quality, budget, options, looks and functionality. We can offer advice on these options, tailored to what we know the client wants, to help with the decision making process.
