Luxury Expedition Yachts.

At C-Quest Yachts we convert commercial ships into luxurious expedition yachts and support vessels.

About C-Quest Yachts

At C-Quest Yachts we understand what is required of a new build Superyacht or of a converted commercial expedition vessel converting commercial ships into luxurious expedition yachts and support vessels

We remove many of the unknowns that can cause expensive build errors as well as cutting lead times by utilising a donor vessel. We then bring our experience to the table to custom design and retro-fit the vessel and develop an expedition experience with world cruising capabilities.

Select Your Vessel
Choose Your Toys
Design Your Experience
Build Your Yacht

C-Quest Yachts provide a full team of the worlds best yachting experts from sourcing the ship, to the design then to completion. Each of the projects maintain a 1:1 service with our clients.

With years of world cruising experience combined with our practical knowledge of running super yachts, we strive to deliver uncompromising perfection when it comes to the production of your dream expedition vessel.

Our process starts with the selection of trusted "Ocean going" commercial ships which are already proven on the world's wildest oceans

By starting with an already tested commercial vessel, we remove many of the unknowns that can cause expensive build errors as well as cutting lead times by utilising a donor vessel. We then bring our experience to the table to design and retro-fit the vessel and to develop for you a custom expedition experience.

Our team will help you decide what toys you would like included and how luxurious an experience you would like to make your 'soon-to-be' converted luxury yacht.

C-Quest Yachts will guide you through each step of the process, and will use our experience and our attention to detail to deliver you the best that money can buy.
