Christmas Newsletter 2023

December 22, 2023

Welcome all,

Firstly, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you have a restful and joyful festive period, and look forward to seeing you in 2024.

Looking back over 2023, it has been an exciting and eventful year for the team, with plenty of yachts, days on the water, travel, boat shows and meetings with new faces as well as some more familiar ones!

At the start of 2023 we hosted the global launch of the magnificent Moon 60 Power in St Katherine Docks, London, as the Exclusive Dealership for Moon Yachts in the UK and Ireland. It was a fantastic three day event that saw industry press, clients and friends flood to London to get a glimpse of the new power catamaran.

Following the launch, the 60 Power has been showcased at the Mediterranean Yacht Shows throughout the season and the shipyard have more in production, along with the very popular 60 Sailing version.

We were also delighted to announce the sale of a new Moon 60 sailing catamaran in September this year, due to launch in 2024 from the Moon Yacht facility in Gdansk Poland. A 1/3 share of this yacht is still available to purchase with S6 Marine.

2023 has seen a number of new relationships formed with some very prestigious and innovative shipyards. S6 Marine are now proud dealers for Cosmopolitan Yachts, Y-Yachts and Virtue Yachts, as well as Moon Yachts.

New Brands and Models

With their shipyard in Spain, Cosmopolitan Yachts are delivering something very special; the ultimate luxury explorer catamaran, constructed out of aluminium, with a focus on hybrid-electric efficiency, and spacious interiors.

So far, Cosmopolitan Yachts are offering 4 models: Cosmopolitan 70Cosmopolitan 85Cosmopolitan 85 Narrow, and the Cosmopolitan 115.

Cosmopolitan Yachts aim to produce catamarans that can seamlessly handle the seas, harness solar power, and indulge in limitless comfort, all while minimising fuel consumption. Their custom catamaran aluminium yachts are designed to excel in any environment, with marine-grade aluminium construction that provides strength, sturdiness, and resistance to corrosion for sailing in any water conditions.

Whether you’re looking for a silent electric boat or speeds of over 26 knots, the custom catamaran aluminium yachts offer ultimate flexibility in power and fuel efficiency. And with advanced hull forms and superior bow height, you’ll enjoy comfortable sailing even in seas exceeding 1.75m.

These yachts are available to buy with S6 Marine as a dealer for Cosmopolitan Yachts in Europe and the UK.

The Y-Yachts shipyard is located on the Baltic Sea, almost directly on the water. Here they can manufacture yachts up to 35 metres in length and build hulls, decks and rigs exclusively in carbon fibre. This is the only way they can implement their philosophy: Lightweight construction goes hand in hand with more sailing fun and, above all, is more sustainable. When other yachts are still under engine, the sails are already set on a YYacht.

They work with the most renowned designers such as Sir David Chipperfield, Bill Tripp, Lorenzo Argento, Design Unlimited, Surge Projects or Norm Architects to produce some of the best monohulls on the market.

Y-Yachts are available to purchase with S6 Marine, as a dealer in the UK. The shipyard currently offers the following models, including a custom range: Y-7 Y-8Y-9Y-CustomY-Breeze.

The Polish shipyard Virtue Yachts is producing sporty, stylish day boats that prioritise speed, performance and comfort whilst limiting their impact on the natural environment.

Virtue Yachts are created by people with a deep passion for yachting. Their engineering team has many years of expertise in yacht production. But above all, they are active boaters themselves. They strive for technological perfection, but also want to be part of positive ecological change.

If you are looking for a day cruiser to take you along your favourite coast, with your nearest and dearest, Virtue is the ultimate option. They are the smoothest and most sustainable adventure boat on the market. These yachts are also great for short stays over night, thanks to the facilities onboard and the focus around comfort and guest experience, or as a luxury tender for a larger super yacht. S6 Marine are dealers for Virtue Yachts in the UK and Ireland.

Moon Yachts have recently launched the first designs of the new Moon 9TY, the largest catamaran in their range so far.

The layout options are totally bespoke to you and can be designed around your cruising ambitions. This model can offer up to 6 guest cabins across the two hulls if you want to utilise the space to allow for more guests, or fewer cabins in favour of a much larger Master Suite, or space for an office, gym or even games room for example. Anything is possible with Moon, and the new 9TY model gives you the space to do it.

We are extremely excited about this model and can’t wait to show it to the world. S6 Marine are proud dealers of Moon Yachts across the UK and Ireland.

Current Listings in the Spotlight…

Seaclusion, Sunreef 80, 2020

Entering the saloon and you could be in a New York Penthouse apartment, yet we are not looking at empty spaces, as every area is designed to make the most of the 340sqm.

Seaclusion provides impressive accommodation for 8 guests in 4 stylish ensuite cabins designed with modern and sophisticated decor, arranged to maximise living space for guests. She can also accommodate up to 4 permanent crew.

She is a galley down version of the Sunreef 80, allowing for a large saloon and more separation between guests and crew. Her large top deck offers 360 degree views and plenty of space for relaxation or socialising with friends and family before heading down to the aft deck for some alfresco dining around the table, or sundowners on the swim platform.

Interior design was important to the original owners and no expense was spared on the stunning decor and furniture that flows throughout the yacht, making her one of the best examples of the Sunreef 80 on the market. Inside she is chic, modern and tranquil, with a beach club feel, thanks to the soft, pastel tones, creamy furnishings and subtle illumination under furniture and around the ceiling panels.

She is charter ready and has a great track record of successful charters.

1/3 Share Moon 60, 2024

We have an exciting opportunity of a 1/3 share in a new Moon 60, launching in 2024. Alongside your co-owners, you will experience the joys of yacht ownership with your share of time onboard throughout the year, but also reap the benefits of a successful charter programme, professionally managed to ensure the yacht runs smoothly and efficiently. You will form the third member of this exciting syndicate, with two owners looking for a like-minded individual to run the Moon 60 as a profitable charter yacht targeted at covering all running expenses, while at the same time enjoying up to 5 weeks onboard per shareholder each year.

This yacht offers accommodation for up to 8 guests overnight across 4 luxury en-suite guest cabins, as well as 2 aft crew cabins for a total of 3 crew. She oozes opulence and class with her modern but unique interior finished with quartz countertops and walls and luxury guest cabins. From the flybridge, down to the aft cockpit and bow terrace, there is plenty of deck space for guests to enjoy outside, with opportunities for alfresco dining with a view, either at the dining table, or up on the flybridge for a BBQ and sundowners at the bar. The extended transoms and hydraulic swim platform means more space to relax, close to the water, with the platform doubling up as storage for the tender when not in use.

Shared ownership allows owners to conveniently and cost effectively share the acquisition and running costs of the yacht, and means that owners with limited time are able to enjoy yacht ownership without the risk of their asset wasting away in a marina when not in use. Get in touch with the team for more details.

Agapi Mas is the most highly specified Jeanneau 64s of her kind on the market.

With VAT paid, and considering her extensive upgrades and impressive condition, this is one of the best deals on the sailing yacht market.

She offers the most popular cabin layout, with the large master suite aft, two forward double guest cabins and one bunk cabin amidships.
