Our update with news, info & top picks of our motor and sailing Yachts for sale


Welcome to our update covering market events, news, developments at Ensign and of course the top picks of our boats for sale including some stunning new motor and sailing yachts.  Grab a coffee, a beer or a wine and have a read.  There's lots to update you on!


These sure are crazy times but it was great to see Sydneysiders flock to the water to soak up the sunshine last weekend and enjoy some time on their boats.  And what better time to be forced to get together on the boat with your loved ones.  This weekend is looking nice as well.


For us, I wouldn't say it's business as usual however we are still open for business and our 25+ team continue to operate effectively across Australia.


The world we live in is changing and we are well set up to confront the challenge. Our entire team can seamlessly work remotely and our sophisticted new digital platform launched last year is serving us well to manage the new world order.


Weve had millions of dollars worth of boats transacting over recent weeks and millions more are on the go.  Enquiries are up and we have lots of stock.  We have team members at our marinas ready to assist and our roving sales team can come to you or, if you would prefer, they can do live video conferencing while doing a walk through.


And if you're selling, we can manage the entire process remotely with our digital platform and you can be comfortable we have the means to reach potential buyers via our unparralleled digital marketing platform.


Our servicing & spare parts team is here to help as well, as are our in-house insurance agents. Or perhaps its a good time to upgrade those sails?!? We are an authorised North Sails agent and are on standby to assist.


And rest assured, we are following the requisite social distancing, safety and hygiene practices throughout our operations.


One thing is certain, now is the time to enjoy the solitude and freedom of the Australian boating lifestyle with your loved ones. 


Stay safe, healthy & happy!


 Happy boating! 
The Ensign Yachts Team

Upcoming Boat Shows
Given the COVID 19 situation, the Pittwater Sail Expo hosted by the RPAYC has been cancelled, as has the Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane Boat Shows, while the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show has been deferred. This is likely to be the case for most international boat shows as well. But never fear, we have tonnes of video footage and 360 degree photos of our product and excellent examples of most of our models here in Australia.

Sails Magazine - Free Access
Our friends at Sails Magazine have kindly offered our customers free access to the digital version of the magasine to help cheer people up in these crazy times.

Ensign's Featured New Boats


Bavaria Yachts C42
Ensign Yachts proudly brings to you the entire Bavaria Yachtbau Range, both power and sail. Our newest model is the next inclusion in the revolutionary C-Line, the C42 monohull.  A more powerful and modern 40ft cruiser, featuring an innovative hull shape with narrow entry to the keel, beamy aft section and integrated chines. These all new features combined guarantee both the best sailing performance and an unusually large amount of space in cockpit and below decks for a 40ft-er.  We think it's best in class and doubt you will get better value in any other brand!

Check out this video by Yacht World on the C42 - The boat they queued for an hour to see at its releases at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in January: Click here to see the video

Functional features including one level cockpit, walk around decks and unique rear sunlounge that converts into a c-shaped seating area complete with table, together offer an on-water living and entertaining experience that is far more impressive than previously thought possible.


The modest price and fantastic new features combine for unrivalled quality, on-water living enjoyment and value.
