Sunseeker Line up at London Boat Show
With the London Boat show set to run in the early new year Sunseeker International, Britain’s biggest yacht manufacturer, has announced its full line up of motor yachts that will be on display at the 2017 Show.
Showcasing a selection of yachts from the current range, Sunseeker will also be launching two new yachts with the world premieres’ of the Manhattan 66 and the 68 Sport Yacht.
The British based boatbuilder will showcase the biggest motor yacht at the London Boat Show with its 28 metre 95 Yacht.
The collection of yachts on display include:
Manhattan 66 – World premiere
Having already sold 28 boats before it has even launched, this brand new deep V hull 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..
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.
68 Sport Yacht – World premiere
The 68 Sport Yacht’s exterior lines show off new hull glazing which gives the sporty profile a more contemporary look. This new feature also increases natural light into the lower deck spaces.
The new features continue not least within the vast cockpit where an innovative powered glass door can be lowered away to create a large entertaining space. The mechanism allows the door to open conventionally, but also lower itself away into the sole of the yacht providing a uninterrupted open space from the lower helm all the way to the transom.
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.
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 the builder’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 the company’s fastest ever selling model.
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.
From the saloon and upper aft galley, through to the social seating at the helm, this 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.
95 Yacht – Show debut
With all the spacious elegance of its highly successful sister, the 28 Metre Yacht, the 95 Yacht 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 practical and welcoming space that guarantees space, brightness and privacy. The styling and refined approach continue below deck, where up to four guests can enjoy a stay in the generously sized cabins.
Outside, two large sun pads 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 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.
With speeds of up to 40 knots (depending on the engine/drive option chosen) it cuts an impressive figure on the open water.
The 75 Yacht has been crafted 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 Sunseeker 86 Yacht on show couples 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 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 interior design team has used the space to maximum effect, creating a tranquil and comfortable sanctuary.
Sunseeker International will also be showcasing its new range of merchandise, at the London Boat Show. Featuring a selection of clothing, leather goods and accessories, this15-line collection includes a selection of high performance Henri Lloyd jackets, caps and polo shirts, alongside beautifully crafted Italian leather wallets, briefcases, document bags and weekender holdalls and other accessories.
