Among the impressive eight-yacht line-up, the all-new Predator 55 EVO™, the Manhattan 55, the 65 Sport Yacht, the 88 Yacht and the 90 Ocean has formed part of the Sunseeker display at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival.
These new yachts will showcase industry-leading architectural and technical advancements, elevated interior design, and ingenious arrangements to maximise interior volume and outdoor entertainment capacity.
Each of the five models offers a unique proposition to Sunseeker’s discerning clientele.
Sean Robertson, Sales and Marketing Director at Sunseeker International, said: “We are excited to be able to showcase eight spectacular yachts at Cannes this year, one of the first international boat shows to re-open its doors after a year of uncertainty.”
He added, “We are grateful to the event organisers for ensuring a safe and enjoyable event for guests and visitors.”
Sunseeker has revolutionised its Predator range with the enviable Predator 55 EVO™. Bursting with innovation, she enjoys state-of-the-art Hydro-Pack technology that utilises a fly-by-wire steering system for exceptional agility, allowing owners to cut through the water with effortless fluency.
Her arrangement promotes space maximisation to the fullest, with low-slung furniture in the saloon and a reconfigured helm console featuring touch panels and controls that intuitively fall to the hand.
The Predator 55 EVO™ enjoys remarkable interior detailing found only in larger custom yachts, from striking feature lighting to stainless steel trim on cabinetry and shelving.
Owners can enjoy a generous bathing platform at the stern, with an improved tender garage design that enables smooth launch and recovery, complete with remote control operation for ease and convenience.
The garage space can comfortably accommodate a 325 Williams jet tender, paddleboards, SeaBobs and diving equipment for owners to enjoy their time on the water. Available with twin Volvo Penta D11-725 engines on shafts, the Predator 55 EVO™ will perform a top speed of 32 knots.
Exemplifying the latest in Sunseeker’s exceptional design capabilities, the Manhattan 55 is crafted to enhance comfort and cruising while providing owners with an array of social spaces from the vast flybridge to the generous saloon. The exceptional layout allows owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces.
A key feature that truly sets the Manhattan 55 apart from its peers is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be lowered at the touch of a button.
With the adjacent cockpit door open, this feature creates an exceptional inside/outside environment.
The interiors boast exquisite attention to detail with a new palette of upholstery that provides a contemporary look. The lighting design has been exceptionally well-considered throughout and includes concealed lighting within ceiling panels and furniture.
Powered by new Volvo Penta D13-800 engines, the Manhattan 55 can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 230 nautical miles or achieve more than 30 knots at full throttle.
The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht is fundamentally different to the current Sunseeker range in the 60-foot segment due to its sculptured exterior design, innovative helm concept and stylish interior appointments.
Her sleek exterior profile, with an almost invisible minimalist bridge deck, has been enhanced by the addition of rakish hull glazing, emphasising her modern sporting prowess while increasing natural light into the lower deck spaces.
The dramatic exterior is a striking blend of tinted glazing, teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel, perfectly balancing traditional Sunseeker design concepts with cutting-edge material innovation to create a dynamic performance model.
Central to this yacht’s appeal, owners can specify a revolutionary and exceptionally innovative SkyHelm™.
Featuring twin bolstered seats set very low on either side of a central console, the instrumentation is courtesy of a state-of-the-art glass bridge plotter complete with retro chrome dials housing LED displays.
This design sets off a very modern fully-carbon steering arm that the driver can raise to ease ingress into this racing-cockpit design or locked in a raised position for helming while standing. Altogether, the experience is one of pure adrenaline, akin to driving a high-performance convertible supercar.
The stunning all-new 88 Yacht perfectly showcases Sunseeker’s newfound design direction. There is an abundance of social spaces on board, making it the perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends.
The vast flybridge enjoys a superb layout with beautifully appointed furniture on the spacious aft deck and the option of an infinity spa bath with sun pad. It’s a brilliant space for entertaining with ample places to sit and relax thanks to companion seating adjacent to the helm, and extended U-shaped seating opposite a feature wet bar with everything you could need for a fabulous get together.
Owners can also opt for fixed stools to turn this into a lively bar area. The teak foredeck features another private, social space with a Portuguese bridge, ready for owner and guests to enjoy the ultimate yachting experience in secluded bliss.
Exemplifying the very best in technical excellence, the 88 Yacht features Sunseeker’s X-TEND™ transom seating system that cleverly converts at the flick of a switch, facing rearward at Beach Club level to forward-facing at deck level, offering flexibility to seating arrangements dependent on owner preference.
The 88 Yacht is the perfect yacht for relaxing, entertaining and having fun with family and friends in style.
The class-defining, all-new Sunseeker 90 Ocean breaks new boundaries in yacht design, boasting a 20-percent increase in overall volume and up to 30 percent more deck space. With her substantial 23-foot, 6-inch beam, she truly sets herself apart from rival models in her size category.
Her unique stem bow creates a brand new Sunseeker silhouette. Reaching an impressive 1,800-nautical-mile range at a cruising speed of 12 knots and a top speed of 26 knots, the 90 Ocean is a distinctive force in the water.
Her generous Beach Club comes complete with an innovative, transformational X-TEND™ sunbed system and the impressive foredeck is equipped with a laser projector and 140-inch screen ready to transform this area into an open-air cinema.
This is the perfect craft for luxury entertainment.
Up onto the vast flybridge, owners can select an infinity-style spa pool to complement U-shaped seating and a large sunpad, all serviced by a newly styled integrated wet bar framed with LED lighting. She accommodates eight guests in four exquisite cabins, three doubles and a twin in a standard arrangement, or up to 10 guests in a customised configuration.
Alongside the magnificent display of the Sunseeker Famous Five, Sunseeker will showcase the following models: the incredibly versatile Manhattan 68, belonging to the unwaveringly popular flybridge range offering unparalleled comfort and performance; the dynamic 74 Sport Yacht, delivering an exhilarating driving experience; the sophisticated 76 Yacht, crafted for smooth cruising, entertainment and water sport enjoyment.
The Cannes Yachting Festival will be the inaugural event of the autumn show season, returning to Vieux Port and Port Canto from 7 to 12 September 2021. Visitors will find Sunseeker France, part of the Sunseeker London Group, at 001–104, Old Port of Cannes.
