Buying a yacht is a costly endeavor. Understanding what makes a quality yacht, who manufactured it and the accompanying standards is important. Yachts have been manufactured in Europe for hundreds of years, setting the bar high for vessels made to travel the clear salt waters of the Mediterrean Sea. In the US, yachts are built to stringent safety standards, capable of salt or freshwater travel, and compete in quality with those made in Europe. Asian manufactured yachts are part of up-and-coming market, giving yacht enthusiasts a chance at a lower price while helping develop and guide their quality efforts.
Each country has a set of guidelines for their vessels, boats and yachts. Manufacturers build boats to meet the specifications of the destination, such as a US manufacturer building a boat to Spain’s specifications if the buyer is going to live and sail there. When buying a used yacht, knowing to which specifications and by whom it was manufactured will help you buy a yacht built to use in your area by a skilled manufacturer.
Made in the USA.
Any boat, from a small fishing to boat to a 98 foot luxury yacht, is built to the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) standards. The ABYC standards cover the majority of the standards used in most other countries, and is continually being updated to enhance the safety of the vessel as well as address the market requirements. Many other countries have incorporated the language of the ABYC standards into their regulations or laws. If the yacht is “made in the USA”, you can have a great deal of confidence in the quality of its manufacture.
Made in Europe.
The major difference between a boat manufactured in the US and one built in Europe is that the European Union requires inspection and certifications for their vessels. Once passed, the boat is given a “CE mark”. The standards to get a CE mark are very similar to the ABYC standards. So if you are looking at a yacht with a current CE mark, you know the vessel is seaworthy, safe and built to satisfy tough requirements.
Made Down Under.
Australia and New Zealand also have yacht manufacturers. They also rely heavily on the standards published by ABYC. The major difference here is in the electrical systems. They have published their own standards in regards to installation in the Australia/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 3004.2:2008.
Made in China
Cost one third of those made in the USA or Europe because of cheaper labor costs. The Chinese manufacturers have begun consulting with more established experts on improving the quality of their build, especially in choice of materials. While 2011-2013 models may have used synthetic materials that compared poorly to the interiors of European brands, in recent years Chinese manufacturers have adopted the look and feel of rich lumbers and leather. At this time, Chinese manufactured yachts are considered the low end of the yacht scale, but are an up and coming market. Astute buyers would monitor their progress and perhaps cash in on a high quality vessel at a lower price if he or she acts at the right time.
Manufacturers from all over the world are committed to building high quality products that appeal to yacht buyers with a focus on safety and splendor. They use a variety of materials and design options to appeal to a broad range of interested parties. Just a yacht is more attractive than another does not mean itis safer or will function well in your intended sailing area. Once you are confident in the manufacture quality of the vessel, do your homework to make sure it is the best fit for your use.

The Internet is an amazing tool. It has the power to change the way we live, and we're starting to see that potential today. With only a few mouse-clicks, you can follow the news, look up facts, buy goods and services, and communicate with others from around the world. It's important to ADAMSEA INC. to help our customers retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
We believe your business is no one else's. Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we'll protect the information you share with us. To protect your privacy, ADAMSEA INC. follows different principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
- We won’t sell or give your name, mail address, phone number, email address or any other information to anyone.
- We’ll use state-of-the-art security measures to protect your information from unauthorized users.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you create a Registration ID on the site or when you download free software, enter a contest, order email newsletters or join a limited-access premium site. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of www.adamsea.com but you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you decide to register, you will be able to select the kinds of information you want to receive from us by subscribing to various services, like our electronic newsletters. If you do not want us to communicate with you about other offers regarding ADAMSEA INC. products, programs, events, or services by email, postal mail, or telephone, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing messages from ADAMSEA INC.
ADAMSEA INC. occasionally allows other companies to offer our registered customers information about their products and services, using e-mail only. If you do not want to receive these offers, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing materials from third parties.

When you place orders or access your personal account information, you're utilizing secure server software SSL, which encrypts your personal information before it's sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available.

If your bank does hold you liable for $50.00 or less, we'll cover your liability provided the unauthorized, fraudulent use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own and from purchases made from us over our secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
ADAMSEA INC. strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

ELECTRONIC PRODUCT REGISTRATION
When you buy and sell a product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. When you do, we merge your registration information with any information you've already left with us (we call that information your personal profile).

If you ever want to review or update that information, you can visit the Profile Center, click on Update Profile, and edit any of the Personal Information in your profile. If you haven't already created a Registration ID, we will ask you to do so. This ensures that only you can access your information.
As mentioned above, every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, and then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across www.adamsea.com allowing you to post products, buy & sell products and order free newsletters. Even if you switch computers, you won't have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
What we do with the information you share
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including phone number and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service and announcements about new and exciting services that we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order at that time. For your convenience, we do save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we don't use this information again without your permission.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
