Building the Luxury

Our work process

HYS Yachts implements a carefully studied process for each project. Each phase is closely monitored by the stakeholder, managers, and the team. A computerized project monitoring system helps each members to collaborate and update the task, status, and scheduling. This system and project management tools assist the company to finish the projects on time.

01.
Redesign

The most critical task for any HYS Yachts conversion project comes at the very beginning: accurately identifying the specific lifestyle – or “personality” – the owner would like his or her completed project to convey.

02.
Strip-Out & FUNCTIONALITY

After all design requirements have been satisfied, and the project’s costing has been approved, the strip-out, structural rebuild phase, adding custom functionalities begins.

03.
INTERIOR & EXTERIOR

A place for work. A place for play. A place for rest. Overall, an opulent environment for luxurious living – exactingly-appointed and designed with maximum comfort and usability in mind.

When she emerged from our yards in mid 2011, the newly re-christened Ark Angel boasted a fully restyled body kit, two heli-decks (one large enough for the new owners Agusta 109, the other for touch-and-go passenger service), a sleek, contemporary stern unit, new side coamings, and a spacious open-air sun deck complete with salt-water jacuzzi.

While the Chinese/Filipino owner of the 55-meter Tiara II desired to keep the exterior profile of his project as close to the original vessel’s specification as possible, all interior spaces were converted to an environment of classic luxury.

Tom Perkins (M/Y Dr. No)
Owner

Over the years, I have had rather a lot of experience with various yards around the world, and I can honestly say that it is a rarity to find a yard that is so organized, competent and skilled. Now we are able to begin our adventures with a yacht in which we have total confidence.

Everything was taken care of within the specified time and budget. Mark made sure that most jobs were quoted on, so there was no gray area. I would not hesitate to recommend the HYS team in any task they are willing to take on.

M/Y Blue Hunter
Owner

My experience with HYS was fantastic… so much so, that after throughly enjoying Blue Hunter for over 16 months, I’ve decided to sell her in order have HYS complete another yacht conversion project for me on an even larger vessel.

All work performed on the Galapagos was carried out on schedule and to my specifications. In many ways, the end result exceeded my expectations. It is my personal opinion that anyone interested in a major yacht conversion need look no further than HYS.
