- Project Type: ‘Redefine’ – Using the original layout of the yacht, taking it back to the fibreglass, adding luxury to all areas and addressing engineering issues – to give the Owner comfort, longevity and luxury once more.
- Project Duration: 4 months
This beloved 1999 yacht has been totally Redefined by our expert Designers & Craftsmen – over the course of the project, we took the yacht back to her complete shell to redesign every area in a classic, art-deco theme to suit the boat’s era.
“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 and others meaning higher costs and significantly longer lead times.” – Owner.

“I had owned and loved my Princess 460 for over 20 years and was considering a new boat purchase.
Previously the opportunity to find a company able to carry out, and update older boats, both internally and externally was impossible. Then I discovered Setag and talked to Chris Gates, Setag’s founder…Chris talked me through all the options and potential that my existing 460 had. We agreed designs and a schedule of works to bring her back to ‘near new’ at a fixed budget. 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 and others meaning higher costs and significantly longer lead times.
I had a complete makeover to an agreed budget and to a strict timeline. My boat was collected from its berth and returned to provide the complete stress-free solution.
The makeover has put another 20 years life onto my 460, at a fraction of the cost of new. It is to all effect a new boat with wonderful new fabrics, coverings, new teak decks and engine work to guarantee future reliability.
If you are in any doubt speak to Chris and his team, they know boats like no one else.” – Alaster Dibbo, Owner.
We conducted a full Engineering audit to ensure the yachts safety and longevity, including –
Refurbished the running gear
Fitted modern sound insulation
Upgraded internal lighting
Fitted new toilet systems
Engine & Generator service
All existing teak on the yacht has been replaced as it was looking very worn and used – including the bathing platform, cockpit and steps – giving the exterior of the boat a new lease of life as soon as you step foot aboard.
Exterior upholstery has all been updated with new foams and a modern design, including new seat covers.
The patio door has been removed, repaired and serviced along with extensive GRP repairs.

The extent of the Saloon refit can be seen here in the Before & After images. Every panel was removed and replaced/recovered, along with timber repairs, newly upholstered sofas & helmseats, blinds, curtains, carpet throughout the boat and resolving several leaks.
The neutral scheme of this project is perfect for invoking a relaxed, sophisticated feel with bold and geometric scatter cushions.
Saloon TV Unit
Our Design & Refit projects are so specialist that they not only improve the look and feel, personalised to you – but also address the usability and practicality of your yacht. The owner of this Princess 460, asked us to address his Saloon TV options as he was only able to place a small TV on top of a sideboard unit.
We therefore designed and built a custom TV unit, to pop-up behind a new sofa – modern, discreet and beautifully crafted.

All three cabins have had extensive refurbishment including, all sidelining & headlining panels, the headboards & bed surrounds, mattresses, carpets and curtains – bringing them up to modern standards and fit for many years to come.
Adding teak to the Flybridge has made a significant difference to the overall feel, along with reupholstered Flybridge upholstery.
Our trademark logo is in place – showcasing this restored design classic with a contemporary twist, adding value and longevity to a true icon.

We believe that true luxury evolves through a lifetime of dedication. But it is often hard to quantify what raises something to the level of a luxury product. It is more than a name or a logo: rather it is an attitude, a constant striving for perfection.Find Out More
