INTRODUCING THE SUNSEEKER LINE UP FOR BOOT DÜSSELDORF 2019

19th-27th January 2019, Hall Six, Stand B61

Sunseeker will be displaying an exciting range of motor yachts at the 50th anniversary of Boot Düsseldorf from the 19th – 27th of January. Visitors to Europe’s leading boat show will have the opportunity to view eight of its exquisite models, including the stunning new 74 Sport Yacht, which will be joining the dynamic Predator models, through to its luxurious Manhattan and Yachts range.

The full line-up includes:

74 Sport Yacht – Show Premiere

Sporty and sleek, the brand new Sunseeker 74 Sport Yacht, with 38 knot capability, boasts the latest Sunseeker design cues and sporting prowess as the recently launched Predator 74. However, while maintaining her dynamic look, the in-house design team at Sunseeker has created the 74 Sport Yacht with an exceptional flybridge – almost unperceivable within her profile lines.

Designed to offer the ultimate experience, the yacht’s exterior enjoys oversized pillarless’ windows down to the side deck and a helm sunroof which flood the interior with light and provide exceptional views from the saloon in all directions. She enjoys a truly versatile layout throughout and the spacious flybridge makes her a true class-leader, not only offering an additional helm station, but a perfect entertaining space with plentiful seating, dining and sunbathing options and a convenient drawer fridge as standard, along with optional bimini and wet bar upgrades.

Depending on the owner’s wishes, the 74 Sport Yacht can be transformed into an ‘open’ yacht in warmer regions or a ‘closed’ yacht in cooler climates with an innovative cockpit door mechanism which lowers itself into the sole of the yacht to create an uninterrupted level floor from the helm to the rear of the cockpit.

Stepping on board, owners enjoy stylish interiors and luxurious living with a considerable saloon including a sumptuous lounge and dining area, plus an optional storage unit port side. Below deck there is a generous galley and three spacious en-suite cabins, comprising an aft master stateroom, starboard twin and forward VIP. The master cabin benefits from an optional walk-in wardrobe.

The below deck configuration offers complete flexibility for owners with an option to replace the lower dinette with a walk-in wardrobe for the forward VIP or an additional twin guest cabin which would allow the yacht to accommodate up to eight guests in a four cabin arrangement plus a dedicated twin crew cabin.

The vast foredeck with its superb sunpad for soaking up the rays and spacious lounge seating with optional canopy and drawer fridges, caps off what promises to be another incredible success for Britain’s biggest boat builder.

Alongside this magnificent model, Sunseeker will be showcasing:

·         Predator 50

·         Predator 74

·         Predator 57 (MkII)

·         Manhattan 52

·         Manhattan 66

·         76 Yacht

·         86 Yacht

Sunseeker will also be displaying a selection of its exclusive merchandise range, named the ‘Sunseeker Collection’ at Boot Düsseldorf. For more information about the Sunseeker Collection or to purchase items from the range, please visit www.shop.sunseeker.com.

About Sunseeker International Limited:
About Sunseeker International Limited:

 

Sunseeker is the world’s leading brand for luxury performance motor yachts and Britain’s biggest boat builder.

 

Originally named Poole Power Boats, the company was founded by brothers Robert and John Braithwaite in 1969. The company changed its name to Sunseeker International in 1985 and has since become a global icon, with every Sunseeker the result of an uncompromising and unmatched approach to design, craftsmanship and performance.

 

In August 2013 a majority stake in the business was acquired by Wanda Group, the Beijing headquartered conglomerate with strong footprints across China, Europe and the US. Wanda Group is a committed long-term shareholder providing strong financial and strategic backing for Sunseeker’s continued growth and success.

 

From its manufacturing base in Dorset on the south coast of England, Sunseeker employs c.2,600 people and produces around 150 boats every year ranging from 50-161 feet.

 

Demand for the company’s larger models continues to grow year-on-year with more than 125 yachts over 100 feet in length already delivered. This increase in demand for larger models has been the driving force behind Sunseeker’s truly momentous plans to expand its manufacturing into the world of metal-built yachts. This exciting new development will see Sunseeker partner with renowned Dutch builders, ICON Yachts, to produce a new 49-metre superyacht, the first of which will launch in 2021. Working closely with ICON, the new partnership will allow Sunseeker to capitalise on its success in the superyacht market, by expanding its existing range.

 

When customers want something even more distinctive, buyers can benefit from the company’s ‘Bespoke’ customisation service which allows individual customers to personalise their yacht. Working very closely with highly professional dealer representation in over 74 countries, service and product support is a key priority in maintaining customer satisfaction.

 

As a prominent business within the county and one of Dorset’s largest employers, Sunseeker continues its work with charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that resonates with its employees who have already raised £77,000 during just two years. In addition, it continues its support of their annual Dorset Bike Ride which has raised over £1million since Sunseeker’s involvement began.

 

Most recently Sunseeker announced a long-term partnership with the Blue Marine Foundation a charity dedicated to creating marine reserves around the world and improving biodiversity. With the future of healthy seas and oceans at risk, Sunseeker has launched its first campaign titled ‘Project Menorca’ which will focus on the island’s marine environment. Working closely with BLUE, the new partnership will establish a recognised model of conservation, supported by local partners on the island including the Menorca Preservation Fund.

 

The Sunseeker range constantly sets new standards and benchmarks. From the dynamic Sport Yacht models, through its luxurious Manhattan range, iconic Predator models and its majestic Yachts range, each Sunseeker is the result of an uncompromising approach to innovative design and engineering excellence. Never settling for second best, it is this spirit of excellence that has driven Sunseeker to its pre-eminent position in the leisure marine industry today.

 

 

The current 12 boat range consists of:                                                   



Yacht             161, 131, 116, 95, 86, 76

Sport Yacht    74

Predator          74, 57, 50

Manhattan       66, 52
