How to Remodel a Yacht the Fast, EASY Way

Yachts, just like houses, can fall behind the current style on a pretty regular basis. And if you invested 10s or even hundreds of thousands of dollars into your luxury transportation you will definitely want to keep it current.

And when you buy a yacht used – just like buying a home again – you’ll want to bring it up to date and put your own design stamp on it as well.

But interior upgrades can be daunting! Especially with renovations of all kinds on backlog because of labor and material shortages, rising construction costs, dump fees and more.

So even if you did want a full scall upgrade of the finishes in your watercraft, it would probably be mid-2022 before you could make that happen.

The Cost of Modernizing

The average 40′ yacht renovation starts at $40,000 for millwork and interior finishes.

There are labor costs to demolish existing materials, coupled with manufacturing new, raw materials (avg. 8 weeks), plus shipping.

And the average waste to rip and remove existing millwork (doors, cabinets, millwork), is 1500 lbs!

That means that not only is that remodeling project going be expensive, but it will also take months to accomplish and be bad for the environment.

  1. Cost out of pocket.
  2. Cost of not being able to use the yacht during construction.
  3. Cost for disposal and to the environment.

But there IS a proven fast, available, and responsible way to lessen environmental impact, use less labor, provide a lightning-fast turnaround time AND impress your guests!
