Sunseeker will launch five brand new models at the same time, with the premieres of the Predator 55 EVO, the Manhattan 55, the 65 Sport Yacht, the 88 Yacht and the 90 Ocean.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker International, commented: “This is a world-first for Sunseeker and we are delighted to bring not one, but five new models to the market at the same time.
“Each of these innovative yachts, from the dynamic Predator 55 EVO to the industry-defining 90 Ocean exudes luxury and panache while benefitting from the very latest technology, engineering and design excellence. We have pushed the boundaries to deliver novel solutions, innovating at every opportunity.
“These new models are imbued with Sunseeker style and passion, poured lovingly into every yacht from conception to build. We’re incredibly proud of all of them and believe, given their incredible designs, they will yet again define their respective segments.”
These new models are the first to come to market since Sunseeker International announced a £38-million investment in order to accelerate its new product development between 2020 and 2023.
The design of the Predator 55 EVO has been engineered for speed, with an emphasis on its superstructure and interior. Framed by stainless steel and carbon-fibre detailing, the Predator 55 EVO sits sporty and sleek atop the water.
Inside the cockpit, there are independent helm seats with a panoramic view. A carbon-fibre opening roof with multiple glazed panels along with carefully devised concealed lighting frames the saloon and maximises light throughout.
Available with Volvo D11-725 shaft engines, the Predator 55 EVO reaches 34 knots while taking advantage of its Hydro-Pack that utilises a fly-by-wire steering system for exceptional agility.
Building on the highly successful Manhattan range, the Manhattan 55 has been developed to offer exceptional levels of comfort and luxury throughout with a vast array of social spaces for entertaining.
A key feature of this new model is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be electronically lowered to bring the outdoors in.
She boasts three large cabins, with the master being particularly voluminous, bathed in natural light from its over-sized hull glazing. A well-equipped bathing platform with beach club aft and a hospitable foredeck entertainment area.
Continuing with the sporty and sleek style, the new 65 Sport Yacht showcases the fresh design philosophy of Sunseeker’s next generation of models, featuring a redesigned exterior, innovative helm concept and stylish interior appointments.
With a minimalist bridge deck design and rakish tinted hull glazing, her exterior profile is defined with a blend of teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel features.
The 65 Sport Yacht’s modular sport bridge can be specified as a standard Sky Lounge with comfortable chaise longue and companion seating or a revolutionary Sky Helm featuring twin bolstered pivoting seats set very low either side of a central console.
The design includes a new steering arm that can be raised forward to ease ingress into the racing-cockpit design or locked in its elevated position for manoeuvring while standing.
To the stern, the 65 benefits from an immense extra-wide garage with flush floor providing flexibility to accommodate a Jet RIB or where specified, a fully-featured beach club.
Its interiors feature a standard three-cabin layout all with ensuite plus a standard day head. Four optional configurations can be chosen, ranging from a lower saloon, an additional single-berth cabin, mini-galley or, within the master stateroom, an open-plan owner’s office.
The 88 Yacht combines superyacht appointments with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category. She has the option of a sleek hardtop roof with central opening canopy in either canvas or tilting aluminium vanes. She accommodates eight guests and four crew, and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 30 knots.
The 88 Yacht’s flybridge has a spacious deck with U-shaped seating, a feature wet bar with ice maker, grill and two fridges and even the possibility of an infinity spa bath with sun pad.
Meanwhile, the beach club with cantilevered parasol can be equipped with X-TEND sunbeds that convert from their lowered beach configuration to raised cockpit position at the flick of a switch, providing an overhead rain shower and plentiful stowage opposite an extended bathing platform.
Sunseeker will also introduce the 90 Ocean, which is built in the superyacht shipyard in Poole.
The 90 Ocean’s exterior lines have been modified to allow a large, spacious beach club measuring over 6 metres x 4 metres. There is plenty of storage for a 4.6-metre JetRib, a jetski and two SeaBobs in dedicated lockers, and access to and from the water is provided by a wide submersible ladder gangway.
There is an option for a raised cockpit or lowered beach club configuration with X-TEND seating and an integrated barbecue bar built into the lower coaming.
The flybridge can be specified with an infinity spa pool and sideboard with a second integrated barbecue. The space also provides a wet bar with stainless steel sink, drawer fridges, ice maker and glass bar top.
Inside, an open-plan feel is enhanced by clever design and glazing with a considerable penthouse style saloon, dining and galley, much of which is flexible in configuration due to concealed systems.
Below deck, there is a full-beam master stateroom complete with panoramic views through its 2.5-metre feature windows. Behind a full-width decorative bulkhead mirror lies a 55-inch television.
Large His & Hers pivot-hinge wardrobes adjoin the feature lobby shelving, sat behind full-height panelled mirrors accommodating hanging and further drawer stowage. The generous master ensuite incorporates a floating vanity unit with twin porcelain sinks, backlit framed mirrors, more drawer stowage and a large shower room.
