Production is on schedule for the new Whitehaven 6800 Sports Yacht to land in Australia in September 2021. Her arrival is hotly anticipated as this custom yacht has an impressive specification list.

The Whitehaven 6800 Sports Yacht is one of the most compelling vessels in the range and, in fact, it’s the design that launched the brand. Yet a decade on, the 6800 Sports Yacht is going to elevate this luxury sports motor yacht to a whole new level.

The latest Whitehaven 6800 Sports Yacht is currently under construction at Whitehaven Motor Yacht’s long-term yacht building partner, New Ocean Yachts, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

The owners have opted for a three-cabin layout with the master suite midships. Their ensuite boasts his and her vanities and a full head height shower.

In the forepeak is a generous guest suite with ensuite, which doubles as a day head. The portside twin cabin can convert into a double for a third couple or remain twin beds for younger guests.


The main deck integrates the helm, dining and saloon beautifully, so no matter your preferred cruising position, you can interact with everyone on board. The expansive windscreen and windows offer an unimpeded view and a sunlit interior.

The rear cockpit is what you have come to expect from a Whitehaven. The centrepiece of the large space is the alfresco dining that comfortably seats eight.

There is ample storage as well as additional refrigeration and engine controls for easy docking while the foredeck has a large sun lounge and sweetheart seat for sunset cocktails.

The new Whitehaven 6800 is powered by twin Scania engines and the engine room has a separate compartment for a tender garage easily accessible from the swim platform. It also offers a day head accessible from the swim platform to avoid wet, sandy feet running through the yacht.

Recently, Whitehaven Motor Yachts appointed a new dealer: Australian Marine Sales is now the Sydney Harbour dealer for the brand.

The team, headed by Jane McNeill and Travis McCurry, will be located within the new Whitehaven office on Sydney Wharf in Pyrmont.
