The Team

A dedicated on-site team for your full custom yacht

Alia Yacht Builders directly employs a team of around 300 fully qualified, highly skilled engineers, craftspeople and other professionals. As our client, you will be dealing with organised, intelligent people who are open to ideas, eager to learn and given a great deal of autonomy.

Our trusted subcontractors are an extension of our own team. We’ve worked with them for many years, so you can be confident they understand and share our values. We carefully select the relevant subcontractors according to your project’s specific requirements. They then work entirely on-site at our shipyard, giving us complete control over quality and process management standards.

Design & Engineering

Through our in-house design and engineering capabilities, we bring your yacht to life on paper. From your designer’s concept and architect’s plans, our expert team will produce workshop drawings for pipework, electrics, ducting, cabling, penetrations – the million-and-one practical details that make up the intricate, often invisible but vital systems your yacht requires to function.

Construction Team Yacht in build


All Alia yachts are constructed entirely on-site and under cover by a team of in-house specialists supported by experienced, trusted subcontractors and a dedicated project manager. Working in steel, aluminium and advanced composite materials, we undertake fabrication, assembly and advance outfitting, all to the highest quality standards.


The interior has the biggest potential impact on a yacht build’s overall cost and timing – and the boat’s overall quality will often be judged on the materials, fit and finish. At Alia Yacht Builders, we have our own in-house interiors company, ensuring design, manufacture and installation are seamlessly coordinated with the shipyard to keep the project on budget and on schedule.
