INTRODUCING THE SUNSEEKER LINE UP FOR THE LONDON BOAT SHOW 2017
Two world premieres at London Boat Show 2017, 6th – 15th January, Stand G100
Sunseeker International, Britain’s biggest yacht manufacturer, is excited to announce its full line up of luxury motor yachts that will be on display at the upcoming London Boat Show - the largest range of exquisite yachts on display at the 2017 Show.
Showcasing a selection of its finest yachts from the current range, Sunseeker will also be launching two new yachts at the Show, the world premieres’ of the Manhattan 66 and the 68 Sport Yacht.
Sunseeker is also delighted to not only showcase the largest display at of yachts but also to once again exhibit, the biggest motor yacht at the London Boat Show with its 95 Yacht. Standing at 28 metres, the stunning 95 Yacht is guaranteed to impress all those who attend.
The luxurious collection of yachts on display include:
Manhattan 66 – World premiere
Having already sold 28 boats before it has even launched, this innovative new model for 2017 is designed to maximise space and entertainment options with exceptional panoramic hull and saloon windows providing light-drenched living spaces throughout. Its brand new deep V hull offers signature Sunseeker performance and impeccable seakeeping whilst its open-plan layout provides ample space on board to rival much larger yachts.
Throughout the main deck there is a strong focus on creating generous, useable open-plan, sociable spaces. Her exterior lines flow effortlessly from the bow seating and sunbathing areas to the expansive cockpit adjoining the well-equipped aft galley and saloon on the main deck. Optionally, the galley can be specified below creating an even more open entertainment space in the main saloon.
The newly configured flybridge also creates the feeling that you are on board a much larger craft and has been designed with relaxation in mind with extensive seating throughout, large forward sunbathing areas and a well-equipped wet-bar. The open-plan layout continues through to the wide bathing platform (capable of launching a Williams 385 Jet RIB) and transom ‘beach club’ where an optional barbecue, fold-away bench seat and overhead ‘rain shower’ truly set the Manhattan 66 apart from its peers.
The twin berth crew cabin, with private access through the transom, enjoys a dedicated en suite and ample stowage. Thanks to the galley being situated on the main deck, there is room enough for four very spacious cabins below including two large twin cabins, a forward VIP suite and standout full-beam master cabin with its own private stairway access from the saloon; a first for Sunseeker in this size range.
68 Sport Yacht – World premiere
The 68 Sport Yacht’s sleek exterior lines have been enhanced by the addition of new hull glazing which gives her sporty profile a more contemporary look, emphasizing her sporting prowess. This new feature also increases natural light into the lower deck spaces too, ensuring that she is the perfect balance of style and practicality.
The new features continue not least within the vast cockpit where an innovative powered glass door can be lowered away to create one incredible entertaining space. The cleverly engineered mechanism allows the door to open conventionally, but also lower itself away into the sole of the yacht providing a truly uninterrupted open space from the lower helm all the way to the transom.
Inside, the main saloon has received numerous enhancements through both new designs to furniture and subtle but highly effective detailing. State-of-the-art entertainment systems, high quality fabrics and plenty of natural light ensure you instantly know you are on board a Sunseeker. Below deck, the guest cabins are equally impressive accommodating up to six guests in a three cabin layout, with an additional crew cabin for two. The galley is also located below creating even more entertaining space in the main saloon.
On the lower deck, the new interior styling is just as impressive, showcasing a new combination of fine materials. The spacious, full beam master stateroom includes a generous en-suite and walk-in wardrobe to offer the perfect blend of comfort and elegance. The forward VIP cabin exudes a light yet luxurious feel and further exemplifies the extremely high standards Sunseeker is so well known for.
When it comes to performance, the new 68 Sport Yacht cuts an impressive figure on the open water, with speeds of up to 38 knots depending on the engine configuration chosen.
The flybridge creates the feeling that you are on board a much larger craft and has been designed with both entertaining and relaxation in mind with extensive U-shaped seating, a large sunbathing area and well-equipped wet-bar.
Manhattan 52 – Show debut
The Manhattan 52 is Sunseeker International’s smallest flybridge model for over a decade and since its world premiere at Cannes Yachting Festival in 2016, it has found in excess of 70 new buyers and is Sunseeker’s fastest ever selling model.
Setting a new benchmark for the smaller flybridge format, the heavily sought after, innovative Manhattan 52 is devised to maximise entertainment options, light and living space throughout the boat. Its hull incorporates unparalleled amounts of curved glass to emphasise its sleek lines as well as bringing the outside in and sets the design direction for a new wave of Manhattan models that will be introduced over the coming years.
The innovative design and attention to detail that has gone into the unique layout of the main deck makes this the perfect boat for entertaining in style; with a strong focus on creating fun and easy to use sociable spaces. From the generous saloon and upper aft galley, through to the social seating at the helm, this exceptional layout allows the owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces.
The open layout of the Manhattan 52 provides sumptuous space and showcases the wonderfully well-equipped bathing platform and transom area that can be converted into a mini beach club - a unique and unrivalled feature for a boat in this class. This area offers an inviting space for family and friends to enjoy the optional built-in barbeque, overhead shower and fold down transom seating.
A standout feature that truly sets the Manhattan 52 apart from its peers is the hinged glass cockpit/galley window that opens upwards and outwards, which, alongside the bi-fold saloon doors, creates an exceptional inside/outside environment. The convertible helm seating is another new feature, designed to enhance life onboard as it allows owners to fold the seats forward to provide an incredibly large saloon seating area.
95 Yacht – Show debut
The 95 Yacht’s stunning lines and unique layout exemplifies the latest in Sunseeker’s cutting-edge design and innovative build processes. With all the spacious elegance of its highly successful sister, the 28 Metre Yacht, it combines a superyacht feel with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category.
A standout feature is its unique main deck layout with a special master cabin triplex configuration for even greater flexibility and space from a class above. With the luxurious master stateroom berth on the main deck, a forward staircase leads to a mid-level dressing area and sumptuous en-suite.
The raised pilot house offers greater flexibility contributing to the more expansive main deck layout which is truly remarkable for this size of yacht. Above deck, the spacious flybridge is well equipped with a second helm, bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests to be entertained in style.
The San Remo is a spectacle in any waters. Light, spacious and expertly finished, the main saloon is a practical and welcoming space that guarantees space, brightness and privacy. The impeccable styling and refined approach continue below deck, where up to four guests can enjoy a stay in the generously sized cabins.
Outside, two large sunpads and bathing platform are ideal for relaxing in the sun or hosting your own party out at sea. Your own private sanctuary, this exceptional performance cruiser is perfect for days out and long weekends.
The highly coveted Predator 57 secured the 2016 Motor Boat & Yachting Award for the “Best Sportscruiser over 45ft” and justifiably, continues to be one of the brand’s most popular models.
The Predator 57 has been built with yacht lovers’ needs in mind and the design has evolved and developed in response to customer feedback. Its open-plan design is enhanced by the addition of a fully opening hardtop roof as standard. The aft cockpit offers the ideal backdrop for entertaining thanks to its large L-shaped seating arrangement and wet bar area, whilst the spacious deck saloon makes an equally idyllic setting for entertaining guests in opulent luxury. The interior is just as impressive, with a combination of fine materials and large opening portholes ensuring the full-beam master stateroom, achieves the perfect blend of comfort and elegance.
The Predator 57 certainly doesn’t sacrifice performance at the cost of style. With speeds of up to 40 knots (depending on the engine/drive option chosen) it cuts an impressive figure on the open water.
The brilliantly capable 75 Yacht has been crafted to perfection using the very latest materials and techniques to create an outstanding yacht. Those owners dedicated to serious cruising will recognize a galley and dining area designed to maximise available space whilst after dinner, the main saloon offers a sophisticated yet comfortable environment in which to relax.
However, the most notable feature in this area of the 75 Yacht is not its impressive audio visual system, but the ‘z’ shaped panoramic glazing and hull windows. This offers breathtaking views of the open waters whilst flooding the main saloon with natural light, creating the illusion of being on board an even larger yacht. The spacious nature of the yacht is continued in the interior thanks to its four cabins; three double suites and a twin bed guest arrangement.
The stunning Sunseeker 86 Yacht on show couples flawless design with world-class engineering to deliver a thrilling and powerful performance matched to a staggering range of 1,500 nautical miles. The streamlined profile of the yacht also means it offers the grace and agility often found in a much smaller yacht.
This magnificent motoryacht exudes sophistication and luxury and with a four cabin arrangement, it can accommodate up to eight guests. However, it is the full-beam master stateroom which is the focal point of its accommodation courtesy of its truly capacious volume. The Sunseeker interior design team has used the space to maximum effect, creating a tranquil and comfortable sanctuary.
If the interior of the 86 Yacht embodies contemporary sophistication, then it is matched only by the yacht’s magnificent outdoor spaces. The large flybridge provides a beautiful open-air entertaining spot, where you can take in the sights of the open water. This vast area is so expansive it even offers the possibility of a spa tub.
Sunseeker International will also be showcasing its new exclusive range of merchandise, named the ‘Sunseeker Collection’ at the London Boat Show. Featuring a stunning selection of clothing, leather goods and accessories, the new Sunseeker Collection will be on-show on the Sunseeker stand during the Show, from 6h to 15th January.
