The consultant role in a new build project consists of three distinct missions, consultancy, management and survey. Their purpose is to ensure the best quality of the product but not only. Indeed, the building process of a yacht does not only result in a hand over but should also be a process of building a custom wish if not a dream. The quality of this dream can easily be affected by poor management, lack of proper and technical knowledge, resulting in bad communication and wrong understanding. The role of the consultant is to make sure that those issues tend to zero. Through our project management experience within different yards, this attitude is beneficial for both the client and the yard lowering client’s frustration when facing bad communication or wrong decision taken. It is also beneficial for the yard as the consultant mission will lower last-minute changes and modifications. Although those cannot be always avoided, if happening the consultant role will be to ensure that they are well understood and reasonable.
