Great British superyachts, products and services
The UK offers extraordinary capabilities in the superyacht sector, from the creation and refit of some of the world’s leading luxury yachts and innovative development and support of high quality equipment, through to key services that owners and captains can trust.
Great Britain’s impressive superyacht capability is advocated by Superyacht UK, which additionally draws on the resources of the 1500 member British Marine trade organisation, founded in 1913, of which we are a part. Founded on decades of craftsmanship and innovation, our members are at the forefront of superyacht development, from naval architecture, design and engineering, through all the many skills necessary to see a superyacht into service and and effectively managed and supported throughout its service life.
