The Elite Yachts team are here to help every step of the way – from advising on specification and customization to providing on-going support from around the world.
Unlike the luxury car sector, the yachting industry often relies on local shipyards and subcontractors when maintenance and repair work is required. Unfortunately, this usually means that the original high standards of engineering and construction are often compromised.
The aim of Elite Yachts is to ensure that quality standards are maintained throughout the life cycle of the yacht.
Our in-house Technical Services team can add value and provide specialized support to your yacht on every level.

There are many elements that go into the design of an Elite Yacht which help with performance in all conditions:
Vertical Weight Distribution: Starting at the very early stages, and throughout the design of each project weight is minimized where possible, and positioned as low as possible whilst carrying as much weight as possible in the lead bulbs.
Hull Stiffness: It easy makes the hull very stiff, the challenge is making it light as well as stiff. X-Yachts have achieved this by using a number of tried and tested methods.
Reduced Drag: The more wetted surface area a yacht has the more drag there is. By reducing resistance and drag in the water we can improve the speed.
Mast & Rigging: Due to the stiff hull and the specification of the standing rigging it is possible to have a much higher rig tension and therefore have much greater control over the rig and sail shape.
Elite Yachts conceives on their own all the preliminary project of a yacht. In the first phase the "look" of the yacht is born: from the initial concept, a simple sketch that often holds the core to the distinguishing features of the yacht-to-be, we take care of every aspect of the aesthetic and functional approach of the project, with the drawings of the general plans, the hull design and the modelling of the superstructure, the interior and deck layout, and the sail plan.
The next phase is dedicated to working out the executive project, with meticulous attention to detail in defining the styling and all the functional aspects, by using state-of-the-art tools and leading edge technologies. Also, in this phase a Naval Architect most qualified to developing a specific theme will be chosen according to the owner's preference to fine-tune the area of performance.
With years of experience in this area and connections with some of the best naval architects, Elite Yachts is poised to give the best yacht designs.
