This Sunseeker 82 saloon provided an perfect base for a fun and curvaceous redesign. We have significantly modernised the seating area with the removal of the timber from the upper part of the curved port side bulkhead, replacing this with a small, geometric weave material. Having opened up and enhanced the space visually, it was important to expand on the more shapely aspects of the saloon, creating beautiful bespoke sweeping sofas. The clean sofa design sports a quality sprung base and fixed curved backrests, which immediately update the design, bringing it in line with today’s expectations. The sofas have been finished with a top-stitched detail and the finest quality of indoor-outdoor fabric, for optimum effect and performance.

Centrally, we have specified a coffee table suitable for indoor and outdoor use. This piece, created by the Spanish design house Kettal, is a showstopper, with a marble top and powder-coated aluminium base.

Master Cabin

The feeling of fresh sophistication is echoed in the master cabin. Light plantation shutters provide an important near-blackout function, whilst also lending a fresh and relaxed ambience to the cabin. Here we have removed the previous heavy, headlining design and replaced it with a fresh, modern material to brighten the space. Plush carpet now provides that deep comfort underfoot. The previously dated sofa has been removed and in its place now sits a beautifully-crafted bespoke two-seater with sprung base and fixed backrest, emulating the sophistication of the new saloon sofas. The bed base (still with ample storage) and headboard have been modernised with added comfort and a light, fresh, woven fabric. A simplified textural panel behind the headboard, with two practical reading lights and the addition of plush organic bed linen, make this a calming place to unwind and read a book or catch up on the day’s news.

The introduction of smooth new cupboard and drawer catches as well as matching door handles provides an important layer of quality to the redesign. The deep ink blue feature artwork, luxurious accessories and fresh upholsteries once again cool the warmth of the cherry timber, creating the perfect balance of colour and contrast in this now homely-feeling stateroom.

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!

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.
