What is the ultimate luxury when buying a pre-owned boat?

For us, it lies in the ability to stamp your own personality on it, so that it feels unique to your taste and requirements. For instance, having a bespoke interior designed to your exact requirements, bringing all the pleasures of home to your yacht. Or being able to design the lighting and audio-visual elements precisely to your needs. And that is before considering electronic and navigation aids that you may not have even thought of…

For your comfort, we can have the best pocket-sprung mattresses in the world custom-made for you, partnering with a prestigious manufacturer whose quality is second to none.

Latest Trends

Just as in your home, the ability to upgrade your bathrooms is a highly popular way to ensure the interiors of your yacht feel up to date. All the bathrooms and hard surfaces throughout the vessel can be upgraded to the latest trends, working with the people who have spent decades designing and building beautiful interiors, offering fashionable and technologically up-to-date designs.

Solving problems you never knew you had

The key to relaxation on board your boat is being able to experience silence – so having a lithium battery bank means that you can run the boat overnight silently. Of course, the best technology solves problems you never knew you had, without ever having to worry about it. If you have dropped anchor in a beautiful bay, your family can dive off the back of the boat without the generator running and yet still cook and run the aircon without having to worry about swimming near the unregulated output of the exhaust. Similarly, we can ensure the boat has LED lighting to reduce the electrical load.

If you’ve not experienced the effect a modern stabiliser can have on a boat before, their performance is breathtaking. There’s nothing more enjoyable than being in a bay, enjoying all the home comforts you’ve grown to love, without being disturbed by the wake from passers-by.

Invaluable luxury

Similarly, the change in the technology of radars and plotters means they are now so intuitive that they make navigating relatively simple. We’ve now all become familiar with big screens in our everyday life, so the experience of working with the smaller screen’s older technology of a pre-owned boat can feel like going back in time. When it comes to the safety conscious, you will also want to take advantage of the phenomenal developments in cameras – both in terms of night vision and high-resolution – that make night passages safer than ever.

Once you own a boat that is as technically advanced as anything new from today, with a beautiful bespoke interior created for you for a relatively economic price, then you can enjoy true invaluable luxury.

Brilliant concept...new 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.

The perfect way to open up a new market: the "true reflection of luxury". Setag gets it: simplicity and personalisation are key – with the depth of knowledge to deliver.
James Barke – Managing Director of Boats.co.uk
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.
