Elevate your Experience: An Intro to Bespoke Superyacht Lifts

When it comes to luxury superyachts, every detail counts. Owners and guests expect nothing but the best amenities and ultimate comfort on board. From extravagant interiors to state-of-the-art technology, every aspect of a superyacht is carefully curated to deliver an unforgettable experience. On approaching the design or refit of a superyacht, one often overlooked yet essential element to consider is the superyacht lift. In this article, we explore why owners are in the market for bespoke superyacht lifts and how they can enhance the overall superyacht experience.

Personalising and Styling your Superyacht Lift

One of the defining characteristics of bespoke superyacht lifts is their customizability. Designed to seamlessly integrate with the yacht’s aesthetic, these lifts can be tailored to match the yacht’s style, materials, and finishes.

One of our latest designs is featured onboard ‘Here Comes The Sun’. The team was tasked with building a central bronze and glass elevator from the lower deck up to the sundeck. Through the expertise delivered by Holland Marine Lifts (HML), the true modern-day classic maintains sophistication inside and out, receiving praise from Tim Heywood as a “work of art”.

From sleek and modern to classic and timeless, the options for personalisation are endless. This level of customisation not only enhances the visual appeal of the superyacht but also contributes to a truly immersive and consistent design throughout the vessel.

The Process of Customising Superyacht Elevators

Our process starts with conceptualisation. HML will discuss the requirements to help identify your bespoke superyacht lift needs and preferences. This includes considering factors such as size, weight, and desired design, as well as the location you want to install the bespoke superyacht lift. Once the requirements are clear, our team of naval architects, engineers, and designers will work collaboratively to create a detailed design of your lift. Our experienced team at HML will create 2D and 3D drawings, considering structural integrity, aesthetics, safety, and functionality which will then be presented prior to further development.


As a family business, we’ll take responsibility for delivering unique and creative solutions. We will consider material selection and fabrication to ensure the appropriate materials are chosen for both function and design. Once the individual components are fabricated, they are assembled to create the complete lift structure. This involves fitting the mechanical components such as the hydraulic system, motor, pulleys, and control systems. Upon installation, the bespoke superyacht lift undergoes rigorous testing to ensure proper functionality, safety, and compliance with all regulations. Testing includes load testing, emergency stop testing, safety sensor testing, and operational tests.

It’s important to note that the process may vary slightly depending on the specific requirements of the client and the complexity of the design.
