Yachting is quite popular in recent years and it is defined as an “entertainment and vacation industry in the sea.” The yachting industry as parallel to the world economy is developing rapidly in financial, industrial, and physical spaces in the world and in Turkey as well. With this development, yachting provides foreign currency inflow to Turkey in the tourism sector as well as in the construction industry according to the Turkish Statistical Institute’s data. Turkey is greatly known in the European yacht and boat market particularly in terms of engine manufacture and specialization, low labor cost, and quality advantages. This study is aimed to determine a suitable shipyard’s city to carry out a 30-meter motor yacht. In this research study, a model was suggested for selecting the appropriate shipyard for motor-yacht construction with a proposed solution methodology. In the research methodology, 15 criteria were determined for evaluating 4 shipyards that have different properties and are located in different cities of Turkey. In the first phase of the solution, SWARA was used to obtain the importance weights of the criteria. In the second phase of the solution, alternatives were evaluated with COPRAS according to the calculated importance weights. The proposed model and solution methodology were conducted through an explanatory sample.
