Driving Positive Change

Why is sustainability important to SETAG?

The yachting industry is under increasing pressure to reduce its environmental impact and it is imperative that we work together to implement sustainable solutions.

We’re committed to reducing our environmental impact to support the protection of ecosystems and biodiversity on our planet. We’re generating positive change by building responsible and sustainable methods into every stage of our refits – and of course, the simple act of refitting an existing yacht is the ultimate in upcycling.

With SETAG, there’s no need to compromise the luxury finish of your yacht to protect our planet.


Working Together

We’re working with Enkev, who have a vast catalogue of natural, recyclable fibres, to recreate similar or higher comfort levels to conventional foam methods. Materials such as Cocolok, a coconut fibre wrapped in a natural latex create a comfortable, bouncy feel that offers a luxurious alternative to foam.

Our mattresses are made from British wool, which uses less energy to produce than artificial fibre mattresses. They are also recyclable at end of life and the keratin in the fibres makes them naturally fire retardant.

These natural alternatives don’t compromise on luxury and our expert team will tailor them to your preference, providing a custom product that is completely natural and minimises the contamination of our environment.


It is our responsibility to act now to provide a greener future for our children.  SETAG and its supply chain will ensure they play their part in this global challenge.” – Laura Prynn, Supply Chain Director.

With SETAG, you can make a huge difference when you buy something secondhand, maybe a bit tired and then you put all of this beauty in it and you create what effectively is a brand new boat. Completely to your own liking, your own standard...creating the perfect boat for us.

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.

We have been waiting for this quality of service: a comprehensive, professional refit that we can rely on – because of the pedigree of its staff, with over 200 years' experience in our market.

You have put Princess magic into our beloved Broom.
Delighted SETAG customer - Broom 370 owner
Never have I come across a more able collection of professionals in this market. We have complete trust in Setag, since its team has been in the business for as long as we can remember. We're very excited to welcome this specialist refit company into our portfolio.
