At a Glance –

The pinnacle of yacht tailoring…every detail considered.

After our refurbishment on the left. Before on the right hand side.

Our client has owned this yacht from 2006 so she is a yacht he knows, understands, is comfortable with. Before SETAG, his choices would have been – to run the risk and cost of changing what he knows for something he is unsure of, or to update in stages across the years with multiple suppliers involved.

Our client considered new but weighed up the economic benefits, and benefits in timing, of updating his loved boat and putting it into refit with us – making a sensible more economical, more sustainable choice.

Now he has something unique, modern, looking and smelling like it’s just left the factory, for an absolute fraction of the price of new.

New boat quality, pre-owned prices

This particular boat was transported from Croatia by land to our HQ in Plymouth for her 5 month refurbishment and then shipped to her new home in Dubai ready for the owner to enjoy the season.

Our client worked intimately with us at the beginning of the project to choose the general theme and feel of the yacht refurbishment but wanted little engagement throughout the project to truly experience the ‘wow‘ factor when first stepping aboard seeing the transformation for the first time.

Brilliant boat look and feel at pre-owned prices - by the industry experts. Recycling at its best!
Briony Newington - Founding Partner, Fairline Yachts.
The great thing is, none of this is off the shelf - I love this boat and now she’s got her frock on...this is the best money I've spent.

If you want to redefine, refit and remaster your boat who better to do it than the people who designed it in the first place? "What a fantastic idea!"
Miles Morehouse – Marketing Director, Fairline
We cannot recommend the SETAG team highly enough. If you love your current boat, then for a fraction of the cost to change it, have it SETAG’d. The SY branding certainly helped us obtain a premium price. We got what we paid for her in 2017 plus what we spent with you!

I have worked with Chris for over 30 years and I’m pleased to see him develop his own brand - along with likeminded people with industry-leading expertise. The future is bright for Setag Yachts and pre-owned yacht owners, who can now refurbish their vessels to today’s - or even tomorrow's standards.
David King - Founder, Princess Yachts.
That has been one of the key selling points for us – having that personalised service and having a boat that is unique to us – is standout in its own right. We are pretty blown away…very very pleased. I think it’s fabulous…it has transformed the boat.

James Barke – Managing Director of
Setag are probably the only company who can carry out all the tasks as a ‘one stop shop’. Other yards were reluctant to price work and needed to subcontract many tasks meaning higher costs and longer lead times. If you are in any doubt speak to Chris and his team, they know boats like no one else.
