Factory Direct

The moment you sign the contract, you join the team that is going to design and build your yacht. Your decisions and approvals will be an integral part of the process that leads to the moment we hand you the keys.


We maintain clear and constant communication with you so that you are comfortable with every stage of the yacht’s construction.

There’s no middleman to add time and cost to the proceedings. Instead, you’ll have direct access to the personnel who control every step of the process. This means you’ll be able to give your feedback to the right people at the right time.

While this is an efficient way of working, it’s also a lot of fun. The final, pristine yacht won’t just be an Eastbay, it’ll be your Eastbay.


Once the build has begun, we’ll invite you to come and spend some time with us at our factory in Johor, Malaysia.

Fly into either Kuala Lumpur or Singapore and we’ll collect you at the airport and bring you to the Renaissance hotel where you can relax and recover from your flight.

Next day, we’ll take you on the tour. Most of our guests are initially overwhelmed by the scale of the operation! With 650 staff working in 51,000 square meters, the factory is massive. But, as we guide you through the facility, you’ll soon understand how the layout and workflow create real efficiencies in the build and enable us to maintain exceptionally high standards of craftsmanship.

You will, of course, spend time on your own boat at whatever stage of completion it may have reached. And you’ll have the opportunity to meet with the department heads who will ensure the final detailing meets your exact requirements.


If your boat has reached one of the final stages of construction, there may be the opportunity to take it out on the water. But if you are visiting us in the early stages of the build, we’ll make every effort to take you for a sea trial in a similar model if there’s one available.

At the end of your stay, we’ll have dinner together and you can share any thoughts, feelings or ideas you’ve had while investigating the work in progress.

Next day, you’ll go home full of excitement and anticipation!!!
