Ensign Update © Ensign Yacht Group

Welcome to our update with our latest top picks and luxurious new boats which are ready and waiting for your next adventure!

As the new financial year dawns, we continue to see great market recovery after the initial COVID influenced decline. While many areas in Australia again experience lockdown, Ensign Yachts continues to work and deliver amazing results for our customers through our enhanced digital platform and network of sales professionals.

New boat sales have been particularly strong recently, with 3 Nautitech catamarans and a few Bavaria sailing and motor yachts sold in the past month and deliveries arriving in Australia every month since February, and for many months to come.

Our European suppliers have managed COVID well and continue to deliver boats with relatively short lead times compared to the competition. Bavaria Yachts has had a great year, winning European Yacht of the Year and tripling production forecasts. And Nautitech Catamarans has just launched its new model (details below). Rhea Marine's classy new 32 Open from France has thrown down the gauntlet to the Pardo and Axopar.

This month we proudly welcomed the debut of the Bavaria C38 sailing yacht to Sydney and Bavaria's new twin outboard driven Vida 33 day boat debuts in Sydney in a couple of weeks. We are gearing up for some great events and additional arrivals in the near future. Keep an eye out for your invitation to some upcoming personalised viewings.

We hope you enjoy our top picks and update below and look forward to seeing you out on the water soon!

Happy boating!
The Ensign Yachts Team
Hamilton Island & Magnetic Race Week
Ensign Yachts will be proudly participating in the Hamilton Island Race week this year on Bob Robertson's Bavaria Yachts C45, It's Time.
After Covid disrupted last year's events we are excited to be joining 200 entries in this booked out event. North Queensland is becoming one of Australia's premier sailing destinations. With back-to-back events it's certainly a must do for competitors, family and friends. Entries for both events have now closed however you can still join the wait list.
Check out the links below for further information. We look forward to seeing you there!
The low down on Inmast Furling systems
A lot of people are concerned about in-mast furling systems. Most Bavarias sold in Europe use this system to great success. The main advantages to this system are:
  • Easy to reef and un-reef from the cockpit while underway
  • No need to flake and cover the mainsail when done sailing. Roll it up, close the line clutches, and you're done!
  • Easy to handle with short-handed crews.
Our latest demonstration yacht, the Bavaria C38, uses this system. Feel free to come and check it out. Heres a great article explaining the benefits of in-mast furling and how to operate it correctly:

Discover Rhea Marine
Rhea Marine, located near La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast of France, could be labelled an 'artisan' boat builder catering to a niche market. While they use modern construction and materials, they are traditional in design with a vintage touch. Rhea has re-invented the well-constructed, safe Mediterranean fishing and cruising boat, which now makes an ideal dayboat.
Their attention to detail is second to none, and their expert craftsman deliver results that are incomparable to common factory production.
