The market for what are known as "megayachts" is flourishing. The boom was initially mainly in motor yachts, but in recent years a similar trend has been evident in large sailing yachts, as well. The construction, and especially the fitting out, of these craft represents a specialist field for which a "normal" shipyard is not equipped. In several cases, this has led to serious losses--at least in building a first megayacht. As the author demonstrates, the desire for more individuality is producing opportunities even for small yachtbuilders and boatyards. The craft concerned, however, consist mostly of larger yachts, since as the size of a boat increases, the price differentials between one-off and series production become smaller.
