Working with the best!
Yacht Intelligence is the chosen audio-visual supplier for many superyacht shipyards around the world…
Yacht Intelligence began working on its first project at Feadship’s Royal De Vries yard in Aalsmeer in early 2015 and, eight years on, we are privileged to be still completing successful projects at the prestigious facility as well as many other Dutch shipyards. The Yacht Intelligence team strives to build strong and positive shipyard-supplier relationships, resulting in Yacht Intelligence being chosen as audio-visual supplier for many superyacht shipyards around the world.
As with any inaugural project at a shipyard, there is an initial period of learning the ropes for any contractor, but each subsequent project at a shipyard gives us the opportunity to fine-tune our approach. We thrive on getting to know project teams and being part of extended shipyard families. For example, we have now reached a point where we are fully accepted as part of the Feadship community, and we understand that it is vital we continue to recognise our role as contractor and ensure we maintain the high standards we are known for.
Yacht Intelligence has been involved with a variety of complex and interesting projects, from new builds ranging from 50-92m to large refit projects. The key for us is to work closely with the chosen shipyard’s engineering team.
To date, one of the most challenging projects the Yacht Intelligence team has undertaken has involved a low-profile new build with a very minimalist interior. Due to the space restrictions on board, the brief was to avoid taking up space in the guest areas with technology, so that all space available could be used by the interior crew to service the owners’ needs. After a thorough assessment, we arrived at the optimal solution, which was to create a standalone technical space underneath the crew mess where everything could be homed centrally and hidden out of the way.

To help shipyards understand our needs with regards to space requirement, rack layout, cable routing and cooling, we design the space in 3D and present it to the shipyard and owner’s team so all parties can clearly visualise the concept. Once the designs are fine-tuned, the yard’s engineering team can take the concept and make it a reality. This is a prime example of the meticulous preparation and collaboration that takes place between Yacht Intelligence and shipyards throughout each project.
During a recent refit project, we were also able to provide valuable input regarding the streamlining of the communications and TVRO equipment on board. Working with both the shipyard’s engineering team and the owners’ team, we were able to remove unnecessary mast equipment to allow for antenna relocation from the roof of the bridge. This created aesthetically pleasing cleaner lines and unimpeded views from the Jacuzzi and seating positions on the sundeck.
Having constructive working relationships with yard teams enables us to address any audio-visual challenges within a project quickly and find solutions effectively. In addition to this, knowing the other teams we are working with benefits the efficiency of each project, with shop-floor decisions able to be made immediately (provided there are no financial implications) to avoid any stress and delays. Shipyards can enhance this dynamic by allocating project contractors an onsite office alongside each other, creating better communication between all parties and prompter response times.
Yacht Intelligence is involved in many projects across Europe and the US, working on behalf of both the shipyards and owners’ teams, and recently completed the AV installation on board M/Y Broadwater at Royal Huisman as well as an AMELS refit project.
