Our Journey

Whitehaven Motor Yachts is the culmination of the vision, determination and expertise of entrepreneur, Bruce Scott and passionate boat-builder, Ryan Hanson. Inspired by the tranquil beaches of Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands, they designed and built their ideal blue-water cruising vessel.

Like its namesake, the Whitehaven range of motor yachts is a sanctuary, redefining luxury boating and offering the opportunity to experience the ultimate escape and superlative standard in relaxation.

Starting from scratch with tooling, the Whitehaven design team were charged with conceptualising the ideal long-range cruiser, with impeccable offshore capabilities. The major considerations were to develop a hull that offered an immensely stable, dry, economical and comfortable ride in all conditions. In addition to performance, the teams’ brief also prioritised the innovative use of space within the boat, with panoramic internals, maximum entertaining amenity and unrivalled levels of custom options for their exacting and experienced owners.

Your Whitehaven vessel reflects your unique personality and lifestyle aboard. Developed in Australia for Australian conditions and proudly hand built by master craftsmen in Taiwan – one of the worlds leading Superyacht building hubs.

“Every bespoke selection of layout and finishes enhances onboard liveability, with a feeling of space and tranquillity, airy and panoramic living areas, generous staterooms, gourmet entertainer’s galleys and cleverly concealed utilities and functional zones.”

“Boating is not only easier and more enjoyable, but infinitely more luxurious. Bespoke master-crafted finishes teamed with exceptional fabrics and fittings mean a Whitehaven Motor Yacht is more comparable to a luxury home than a boat. Your Whitehaven is appealing to every one of your senses – whether relaxing at anchor or bluewater cruising.”

Comprising models from 40 to 90 feet, the Whitehaven Motor Yacht’s range encompasses our spontaneous and spirited Harbour Classic, large volume Flybridges, practical single-level Coupes, open-air Sunbridges and sleek Sports Yachts. The team at Whitehaven works with owners from the hull up to create a bespoke product that perfectly suits their needs and boating ambitions.

A myriad of layout and styling options can be accommodated with a level of customisation rarely seen outside the superyacht segment and produced at comparable pricing to the leading production manufacturers.

All Whitehaven Motor Yachts are supported by a national factory backed warranty and after sales service support for complete peace of mind. We have an excellent dealer network in Australia and New Zealand to support sales, service and maintenance arrangements which covers all aspects of your vessel.

"When we met the team at Whitehaven, and they told us we could have anything we wanted, we didn’t think it was possible. But from the very start, nothing was a problem...it’s 60 feet of everything we could ever have wished for.”
