Andrea Frabetti, Sunseeker CEO, commented: “We are delighted to return to Düsseldorf after a three-year hiatus.

“The atmosphere on opening day was electric. Clients, suppliers, the Sunseeker team and the world’s press all joined the celebration of the stunning new Sunseeker Superhawk 55. This is the start of a new range that will make waves for years to come.”

The all-new Superhawk 55 is an agile performance model set to receive a spectacular unveiling at the show opening on Saturday 21 January 2023. The stunning new 75 Sport Yacht also made its world premiere at the boat show.


Superhawk 55 – World Premiere

The all-new Superhawk 55 is a striking motor yacht in the Sunseeker Performance range.

Sunseeker has developed a new open-top dayboat set to thrill with sleek design, exquisite detailing, and exciting innovations. Powered by twin Volvo Penta D11 – IPS 950 engines matched with a hull form specifically designed for the IPS propulsion system, the Superhawk 55 is capable of a thrilling performance with unparalleled agility.

Striking exterior lines and intelligent design cues are evident in the Superhawk 55 exterior design. The profile is a composition of an all-new composite hull, stainless steel detailing, and expansive glazing.

A sculptured full-beam aft cockpit makes full use of the yacht’s incredible width, benefitting from generous configurable seating and concealed appliances integrated into the feature wet bar and optional rise and fall TV. Helming takes place from the centre-line triple helm amidships, which allows three people to manoeuvre effortlessly.

Complete with dual glass bridge display screens, charging pads and chrome multi-purpose dials, the console is well-equipped for all helming requirements. This is all sat behind a stainless-capped, curved windscreen that offers completely uninterrupted views and protection from the elements.

Side deck access sits forward, adjacent to the helm, with pantograph doors to port and starboard delivering effortless walk-around access, typical of a much larger yacht. The Superhawk 55 is available as an open-top yacht or with a hard top for added shade.

The open-ended aft features a sun pad with integrated water toys stowage under an electrically opening hatch. The tender garage below can house a Williams MiniJet.

Altogether this new layout delivers a one-of-a-kind performance yacht.

The foredeck offers a full-length sunpad, sliding forward to reveal a table and dedicated seating area complete with wireless charger and storage lockers.

Steps lead down to the lower deck, a highly luxurious open-plan saloon and galley area sat beneath LED lighting. Ambient recessed lighting, curved wood, and lacquer finishes contribute to a premium yet cosseted interior space.

The light floods through from the expansive glazing above with a unique union jack feature. An electric blind allows intimacy and shade when needed. A rise-and-fall TV positioned above the galley transforms the space into a more relaxed seating area with comfortable lounging seats.

The forward cabin benefits from an en suite, upholstered units, and a wardrobe on the port side. The aft cabin comes with optional sliding berths offering a double or two singles and a generous en suite.

The in-house interior design team developed several interior schemes with a mix of textures and colours that provide a degree of customisation with a highly contemporary look and feel.

With plenty of flexibility to the specification, emotive styling and configurable spaces, the Superhawk 55 offers a taste of luxury and the thrill of speed and agility to all those who step on board.

75 Sport Yacht – World Premiere

The next generation of Sunseeker Sport Yacht has arrived. Sunseeker launches the 75 Sport Yacht.

Striking exterior features, modular furniture configurations and a contemporary interior finish deliver an exciting yacht reaching speeds of up to 40 knots with twin MAN V12-1550 or 1900 engines. Lower accommodation spans three cabins with an optional fourth pullman cabin in place of the lower deck saloon.

A design concept that balances beautiful architecture with functionality is central to Sunseeker’s latest Sport Yacht. The beautiful symmetry of the stern is a feature in itself. Dual steps lead from the bathing platform to the aft cockpit, with a tender garage capable of housing a Williams 395.

A signature walkaround step on the bathing platform elongates the yacht while providing a visual feature that creates a unique perspective from the marina. Meanwhile, access to the starboard side is improved, making full use of the side decks.

Aesthetic styling is prevalent in every detail.

The yacht profile turns heads with stainless steel air intake cowlings and exterior handrails, contributing to the high-quality finish. There is an enhanced material selection, with new exterior upholstery and moulding options. Adventurous buyers will be captivated by a choice of four new grey hull colours. Overall, the exterior is aggressive and imposing, with a new, angular hull and superstructure glazing design.

The aft cockpit benefits from a classic seating arrangement. Popular U-shaped seating with a rise-and-fall carbon fibre table provides an intimate social area.

The aft sunpad is an ideal sunbathing space, with a large storage compartment concealed underneath. The cockpit door slides to starboard and then the door and window descend beneath the seating, uniting the cockpit with the saloon. A traditional second helm is accessible on the spacious flybridge via a stairway.

Adjacent companion seating on the starboard side, adjoined by a chaise-longue sunpad, offers an uncompromised view of the water. Complete with a wetbar for the essentials.

Meanwhile, up front, there is a spacious foredeck with seating and a table for six. Cold drinks are at hand courtesy of the built-in drawer fridges whilst the broad comfortable sunpads feature tilting backrests.

The design extends throughout the interior. Exquisite woods, contrasting fabrics and rich lacquers, paired with indirect and dimmable lighting, create a sophisticated and striking ambience. Bold features include carbon fibre trims, sharp accent designs, reflective surfaces and stainless-steel cabinet detailing.

A double-piece windscreen improves visibility and invites light into the main deck. The interior space is customisable from the material selection to the configuration.

The main deck seating centres around a fold-out table on the starboard side and a large television unit on the port side in a standard arrangement, all flooded by natural light thanks to the full-height glazing. The comprehensively equipped helm station is forward of the U-shaped sofa, maintaining a typical Sunseeker layout.

The lower deck arrangement offers spacious accommodation for up to eight guests and two crew. A sumptuous full-beam master cabin has a dressing table fitted with storage, a chaise longue and plenty of additional wardrobe space. All three guest suites come with an ensuite, and access to a shared day head is available from the lower hallway. The fully-fitted lower galley and dining space offer a social zone for intimate entertaining.

With so much choice on offer, buyers can tailor their 75 Sport Yacht to fit their lifestyle perfectly. Given the breadth of entertainment spaces on offer, spacious cabins and powerful sea-keeping, the 75 Sport Yacht promises to deliver an exceptional owner experience.

Other Sunseeker models on show include Manhattan 55, Manhattan 68, Predator 65, 76 Yacht, 88 Yacht, 90 Ocean and 95 Yacht.

Visitors to the Düsseldorf International Boat Show will find Sunseeker in Hall 6 at stand B-61.
