The final countdown...
The Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report 2016, to be published in early 2016, will include the top 50 shipyards currently building superyachts (30m and above) based on the cumulative LOA of their deliveries since 2011.
With the existing superyacht fleet of 5,132 built by a staggering 1,047 shipyards (a historical average of 4.9 yachts per yard), and considering 122 yards across the globe have at least one superyacht currently in build, consistency and longevity are the holy grail for builders.
The top 50 shipyards have achieved this, despite the total number of active builders shrinking more broadly. And crucially, the top 10 yards within this list are all currently producing yachts, with orders in the book.
There have been a number of new entries into the top 50 over the last 12 months, but the top 10 continues to represent a glass ceiling for the vast majority. Nine of the 10 are the same as they were last year, although their respective positions have changed, with only Gulf Craft (943.7m) breaking into the top 10 at the expense of Azimut (809.14m).
The top 50 shipyards will be revealed in full when The Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report 2016 is published, but two of its top 10 offer insight into the market’s trajectory.
Although Heesen’s cumulative delivered LOA has fallen over the last five years, the average LOA of each unit delivered has risen to 49.5m, a literal indication of the growing demands of mid-range clients.
Heesen is building ever larger yachts, such as 55m Azamanta.
And after a fairly dour 2011, in which only two 30.8m yachts were delivered, Gulf Craft has grown in strength and stature. In 2015 the yard finds itself with comparable output (26 superyachts delivered) to that of industry stalwart, and competitor Westport Yachts (25).
Gulf Craft's Majesty 135.
Unlike other global order books, The Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report 2016 represents the industry’s primary market forecast tool, combining historical analysis with current empirical research to project a clear prediction for the short- to medium-term future of the new build market.
