Whitehaven Motor Yacht’s success continues

A number of recent sales have propelled luxury motor yacht brand, Whitehaven Motor Yachts, to become  a  leading  bespoke boat builder within the Australian market. The brand’s unique, customisable luxury vessel offering has led to a spike in recent boat sales in Darwin, Sydney and Melbourne.

Australian owned and designed, Whitehaven Motor Yachts offers its customers choices that are only limited by space and one’s own imagination. Co-owners of Whitehaven Motor Yachts, Keith Hanson and Bruce Scott feel the brand’s success has been largely down to its custom-made, master-crafted proposition.

“Our understanding of the Australian boating culture heavily influenced the design of the entire range of Whitehaven Motor Yachts,” explains Keith. “We consider boats as homes and we want them to be versatile, to be used for entertaining, family holidays, relaxing at anchor or clocking up sea miles with long-range, offshore cruising.”

The most recent sale is a newly commissioned build of a 6000 Flybridge to Sydney Harbour based owners. Their new Whitehaven Flybridge features bespoke design throughout to suit their individual boating needs including three bedroom and three bathroom lower accommodation, standalone dining table for eight in the saloon, personalized touches of European leathers and fabrics and luxury fittings and finishes. This sale comes alongside confirmation of a 6000 Flybridge making its way to new Melbourne owners, thanks to the efforts of Victorian Whitehaven Motor Yachts Dealer, Terry Ryan from Pier 35 Boat Sales.

The brand’s growth and momentum kicked off at last year’s Sydney International Boat Show with the sale of a custom build 750 Sports Yacht to Darwin couple Ray and Denise David. Avid boat-lovers, the David’s decided to invest in a larger boat last year and are due to take delivery of their new personally customized motor yacht by mid-2016.

The couple commented, “We didn’t think we could improve on our last boat, but having worked closely with the Whitehaven team, we’ve been overwhelmed with the options and what’s achievable. Whitehaven has been able to cater to our personal boating experience and lifestyle and we are thrilled that we have had the freedom to design our dream boat – layout, fit, finish, engineering and all”.

Meticulously designed and built for Australian conditions and available in lengths from 60 to 95 feet, the Whitehaven range combines exceptional offshore blue water capability with impeccable build quality which utilises stylish European leathers and fabrics and personal levels of customisation to deliver a truly bespoke product at comparable pricing to leading production brands.

Offering a boutique range of entertainers’ boats including Flybridge, Sunbridge and Coupe models the Whitehaven range offers a luxury motor yacht customised to suit the on-board lifestyle of the most discerning boat owner.
