The expanding Whitehaven family

Whitehaven Motor Yachts is proud to welcome two new owners to our family. In August, the first Harbour Classic 40, Tonic¸ along with the flagship Flybridge 6000, Bella Sky, were delivered to their new owners in Sydney and Victoria respectively.

Whitehaven Harbour Classic 40 - Tonic

Tonic, the first Whitehaven Harbour Classic 40 has been acquired by David McLean of Neutral Bay, Sydney. David is transitioning from 40 years of sailing – mostly competitive coastal and harbour racing – into his first power boat and plans to keep Tonic on a mooring in Shell Cove, Sydney Harbour and utilise Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron and Kuringai Motor Yacht Club.

David said of his purchase, “The design and high quality of the HC 40 really appealed as I have been sailing a top Scandinavian racer/cruiser and appreciate craftsmanship as well as highly detailed design. Dealing with Travis McCurry at Whitehaven’s Sydney dealer, Australian Marine Sales, has been a pleasurable and totally professional experience. My wife and I can’t wait for CV-19 restrictions to ease so we can get out on the water and put Tonic through her paces and enjoy the many luxuries she offers. Thankyou Whitehaven.”

'Bella Sky', the inspiration for La Robelle.

Whitehaven also welcomes the new owner of Bella Sky. Having spent only two short weeks on the brokerage market, the Flybridge 6000 was snapped up by a Melbourne-based owner.

“We had actively been searching in the market for around two years yet were unable to find something that ticked all the boxes. When Bella Sky hit the market, the deal was done in only a few days after a live zoom call walk around. Blown away by the quality of the build and positive feedback from all in the industry on the pedigree of Whitehaven Motor Yachts, we were ecstatic to have finally found a yacht that suits us so perfectly,” explains the new owners.

Bruce Scott, Managing Director of Whitehaven Motor Yachts welcomed the owners by explaining, “When you buy a Whitehaven, whether as a new build or a brokerage boat, you are welcomed into a family of passionate boat owners. Membership is not mandatory, but we are yet to meet an owner who didn’t appreciate and engage in the comradery of Whitehaven ownership. We hope both new owners get as much joy from cruising in their motor yachts as we did from designing and building them.”
