No, unless you break the series connection before you make this parallel
connection. If you are willing to add 2 high-current switches to break
the series connection, and another 3 to make your parallel connections.
The switches are expensive. It could be done, but if you failed to break
even one connection, you will blow up a battery. I'm sorry, but this
really isn't all that easy. Bill Gunn suggests just tapping off 12V and
charging a bit longer to make up for the imbalance. I designed a
self-equalizer based on parallel integrators that I might be able to post
after it is published (the patent will not be filed because the company
choose a more expensive charge equalizer). This is an old problem.

Instead of a DC-DC Converter, how about this?...
Hooking up the 12V components to the 3 pairs of batteries in parrallel,
12V+ to Batt1+ & Batt3+ & Batt5+
12V- to Batt2- & Batt4- & Batt6-
The 18V accessories would look like this:
18V+ to Batt1+ & Batt4+
18V- to Batt3- & Batt6-
Would that work?
