Setag Yachts moves refit business to Queen Anne’s Battery

Luxury motor yacht design and refit specialist Setag Yachts has relocated to Queen Anne’s Battery (QAB) marina in Plymouth, which is operated by MDL Marinas.

Setag Yachts has taken a modern business unit below QAB’s marina office to house its sales office, as well as its engineering and design teams. Setag will also carry out its bespoke luxury refitting service onsite, occupying significant hardstanding and workshop space in the marina’s Atlantic and Tamar Buildings. The company says it continues to maintain its focus on Fairline, Sunseeker and Princess yachts.

Since its launch in April 2021, Setag Yachts says it has secured 20 design and refit projects, with yachts ranging from 33ft-88ft, and budgets of between £10,000 and £1m. The relocation to MDL’s QAB marina is billed by Setag as a strategic move to ensure the continued success of its business; benefitting from the increased proximity to its supply chain.

The Setag Yachts team

“Our professional team’s collective skills and experience come from many years building luxury motor yachts in Plymouth,” says Setag CEO, Chris Gates. “We specifically looked at where we would be best located in Plymouth, with regards to our suppliers and other marine business services.

“MDL’s Queen Anne’s Battery was ideal, having established a hub of marine businesses. But it’s more than just the location. MDL’s sustainability initiatives were also integral to our decision.

“We, too, are committed to driving positive change for the environment. We do this by building responsible and sustainable considerations into every stage of our refits. The simple act of refitting an existing yacht is the ultimate in upcycling.”

Tim Mayer, sales and marketing director at MDL comments: “We’re truly delighted to welcome Setag Yachts as a tenant at our Queen Anne’s Battery marina. As a business, its core values with regards to the environment align so well with our own.

“Setag will also be exhibiting at our Green Tech Boat Show in June. It will be showcasing how it raises the concept of ‘refit’ to a new level to encourage more people to experience the boating lifestyle on a pre-owned yacht, helping to make boating more sustainable.”

Located at the entrance to Plymouth Sound with excellent access from the A38, Queen Anne’s Battery has 235 berths for boats up to 18m. There is a wide range of marine trades on-site including marine electronics, riggers, GRP repairs and engineers. With a 40-ton Wise hoist, allowing boats to be launched seven days a week, and plenty of storage ashore, the marina offers comprehensive boat repair and maintenance facilities for businesses and berth holders alike.
