Aaxcell 6500 Catamaran Motor Yacht

Our New-Build and Refit Program is directed by 30-year veteran of yacht construction and shipyard operations, Phil Friedman.  Formerly president and CEO of renowned world-class superyacht shipyard, Palmer Johnson Yachts, Phil understands new yacht construction and major refit intimately from the inside. And he brings to bear an unmatched depth of knowledge and genuine hands-on experience.

Phil and the PRG Roster of Associated Marine Professionals work effectively at all times to assure your project a smooth passage — from concept right through to reality.

At the Port Royal Group, we enjoy long-established strategic relationships with numerous highly-noted and award-winning designers, naval architects and engineers, as well as with several world-class shipyards around the world. This enables us to rapidly and cost-effectively undertake preliminary project development with the input and cooperation of a host of the best people to be found in the industry.

For more information on our New Build and Refit Programs, including the broad range of services we provide, a listing of our associated marine professionals and shipyards, and a portfolio of our recent and past work, check out the other pages on this website and the included links. Then call or email Phil Friedman directly to personally discuss your new build or refit project. Whether you are just starting out or in-process with a project that is bottle-necked, we can help.
