Sunseeker has revealed the new Manhattan 68, making its premiere at the Salone Nautico (Genoa International Boat Show). Joining the Manhattan range, this new addition has been designed to offer exceptional levels of comfort and luxury with incredible detailing.
She enjoys an expansive cockpit, main saloon area with sumptuous lounge seating and a fully-equipped aft galley. The innovative layout of the main deck is designed with a strong focus on ambient lighting and interior detailing.
From the generous saloon and upper aft galley, through to elevated companion seating at the helm, this new layout allows the owner and guests to move effortlessly between spaces. Interestingly, where a lower galley is specified, the space can be utilised as an additional saloon ‘snug’ or feature bar, seamlessly integrating with the main living space.
The interiors boast exquisite attention to detail with a new palate of upholstery that provides a cool, crisp and contemporary look, unmistakably a Manhattan. New stainless steel detailing contrasts perfectly with light fabrics, helping to create a floating, and seemingly unsupported backrest to the seating throughout this space.
The saloon is drenched by light thanks to the panoramic glazing whilst the lighting design has been well considered throughout and includes concealed lighting within ceiling panels and furniture.
Owners can select from four lighting and entertainment scenes such as Movie, Party or Night modes; with a one-touch activation from a central ‘Videoworks’ control app.
The flybridge has been designed with an integrated hard-top option in mind and features large forward sunbathing areas and a second helm.
It also offers extensive seating with open space for freestanding furniture customised to the owner’s choice.
The wet bar has been designed for multiple uses and now includes built-in storage, BBQ and refrigeration options to create the focus for yet another social and entertaining space.
This sociable layout continues through to the wide bathing platform and Beach Club. A hydraulic door opens to reveal an overhead rain-shower, lights and speakers, and provides storage for fenders, toys, scuba and sports equipment. The area is equipped with an optional fold-away bench seat, and Seabob storage lockers adjacent to the water, complete with built-in charging points. The substantial bathing platform is suitable for launching a Williams Sportjet 395.
Sunseeker also showcased the Predator 50, the Predator 60 EVO, along with the 74 and 76 Sport Yachts.
