Sunseeker International unveils new models at Southampton International Boat Show


The 2013 Southampton International Boat Show is set to be a show stopper for Sunseeker International as it prepares to unveil three new models at the Show.

The Boat Show, which is held from 13th to 22nd September, is the chosen location for Sunseeker to premiere its new 68 Sport Yacht, 80 Sport Yacht and Manhattan 55 to the world. 

Guests at the Show who want to get a closer look at the all-new 68 Sport Yacht are sure to be impressed. Built to thrill, the 68 Sport Yacht is the perfect combination of innovation and design.  Boasting a streamlined design, the stunning motoryacht cuts a striking figure on the open water, yet has the poise and manoeuvrability of a much smaller yacht. 

Only the highest quality fabrics and materials have been used to create the luxury feel of this stunning yacht, while the latest technology ensures it performs in every way.  What’s more the luxurious theme of the 68 Sport Yacht continues on the impressive flybridge, which boats a wetbar and sunpads.

The panoramic hull windows are a real statement feature of the Sunseeker 68 Sport Yacht, creating a sumptuous feeling of light and space throughout.  Below deck the cabins are superbly finished to the highest standard, while above deck the main saloon certainly delivers the wow factor. 

The widely anticipated 80 Sport Yacht is undoubtedly a performance machine.  It’s extremely agile and comes with a number of engine options, including  Arneson drives.  It certainly sets a fast pace, especially when it speeds along the coastline at an impressive 44 knots.

The new 80 Sport Yacht is certainly practical in every way, yet it exudes exclusivity from every angle – a rare combination.  The luxurious cabins below deck can accommodate up to eight guests and offer guests privacy and seclusion.  What’s more, the 80 Sport Yacht also boasts an extremely spacious crew cabin that allows for up to four crew members.

The interior of this stunning motoryacht has been finished to the highest standard and allows for a great deal of customisation.  Owners can reflect their own style and personality. 

Unveiled for the first time at La Festival De La Plaisance in Cannes, the Manhattan 55 not only boasts exquisite design details, but also offers a vast expanse of space throughout.  The new luxury yacht features a three cabin arrangement, so whether setting sail for a short break or an extended trip, the Manhattan 55 can comfortably accommodate up to six guests.  What’s more, the stunning motoryacht allows for even more entertaining thanks to its large dining area which can seat all six guests.

The Sunseeker 40 Metre Yacht will also go on display at the Southampton International Boat Show.  The largest yacht on display at the Show, the 40 Metre Yacht combines impressive proportions with unequalled luxury to create a truly majestic presence.  Perhaps the most impressive and immediately noticeable feature is the increased rake which creates a stunning streamlined profile and features a sharp, ocean-going bow.

The interior of the 40 Metre Yacht sprawls across three decks and offers the option of balconies on either side of the main deck saloon.  Perhaps the most impressive addition is an optional balcony on one side of the master stateroom which floods the room with natural light and opens up breath-taking ocean views.

Stewart McIntyre, Managing Director at Sunseeker, commented: “We are looking forward to the Southampton International Boat Show and we cannot wait to see the reaction of guests to our latest three new models to the Sunseeker range.  We are extremely proud to unveil the Manhattan 55 to the British market and even more so to premier the 68 and 80 Sports Yacht to the world.”

The new Manhattan 55, 68 and 80 Sport Yacht will go on show alongside the 40 Metre Yacht at Southampton International Boat Show on 13th to 22nd September.
