THIS 2ND EDITION ADDS SECTIONS ON BUILDING IN ASIA, ANTICIPATING POST-DELIVERY ISSUES, AND THE PROS AND CONS OF CONVERSIONS AND MAJOR REFITS...


Having a legally bullet-proof contract is not enough to ensure a successful conclusion to a major new build project...


Going strong with more than 5,000 copies distributed to date, Ten Golden Rules for Successful Yacht Build Projects is based on Phil Friedman's more than 30 years experience in yacht project development, management, and direct supervision.


Here are some of the reviews and comments concerning the first edition, from yachting journalists and yachting industry professionals:


From Douglas Sharp (Douglas Sharp Yacht Design, Inc., San Diego, CA, USA) — “I read your 'Ten Golden Rules...' with great interest, and appreciate you sending it to me. The school of hard knocks has certainly taught us many of the lessons alluded to in your book, and I heartily agree with your conclusions and advice… Our industry needs to pay attention to hard won accumulated experience.”

From Stephen Moon (Board Certified Admiralty and Maritime Law Specialist, Stephen M. Moon, P.A., Cocoa, FL, USA) — 

“Your Ten Golden Rules... is excellent. I should have been doing a lot of other things this morning but I could not resist reading the e-book as soon as I had a break… Your remarks are very insightful and will be appreciated by many. I have a much better understanding of the events leading up to the actual build process and the important issues to consider before construction now. Ten Golden Rules... is a quick, must read for anyone involved in a new build project or major refit.”


"Unity" - 2003

gi r— ~

From Harry Jorgenson, (Jorgensen Marine Ltd, Atatu, Auckland, NZ)  — “Having been involved with large yacht building since the late 70s in varying roles I understand your Ten Golden Rules better than most. It is the most sensible advice that I have read for some time and should be essential reading for all involved.”


And from notable yachting journalists...

From Diane M. Byrne, Editor, Megayacht News.Com — “I've just finished reading "Ten Golden Rules...", and it contains sage advice for owners and their team of advisers.”

From Kenny Wooton (for Yachts International magazine) — “Each “rule” is explored in clear, concise prose easily accessible to non-experts.”
