Sunseeker International has announced that it will launch five brand-new models in January 2021 – a feat never before seen in the company’s history. Sunseeker’s “famous five” global premieres are the Predator 55 EVO™, Manhattan 55, 65 Sport Yacht, 88 Yacht, and 90 Ocean.
“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 whilst benefitting from the very latest technology, engineering and design excellence,” said Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker International. “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 are 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 £38m investment to accelerate its new product development between 2020 and 2023.
Predator 55 EVO™
The Predator 55 EVO™ is framed by stainless steel and carbon fibre detailing, to sit both sporty and sleek atop the water. Inside, one finds a range of interior fabrics and textures throughout. Independent helm seats in the focused cockpit allow owners to enjoy performance in comfort. A carbon fibre opening roof with multiple glazed panels – along with carefully devised, concealed lighting – frames the saloon and maximizes light.
Available with Volvo D11-725 shaft engines, the Predator 55 EVO™ reaches an exhilarating 34 knots while taking advantage of its “Hydro-Pack”; this system utilizes a fly-by-wire steering system for exceptional agility.
The Manhattan 55 has been developed to offer exceptional levels of comfort and luxury 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 in the outdoors. This model also offers swathes of glazing, a selection of premium wood finishes, premium lighting solutions, and a cool contemporary interior.
The Manhattan 55 boasts three large cabins, a well-equipped bathing platform with Beach Club aft, and a hospitable foredeck entertainment area.
65 Sport Yacht
The all-new 65 Sport Yacht showcases Sunseeker’s next generation design philosophy. It brings a fundamentally different yacht to the 60-foot segment with a sculptured exterior design, innovative helm concept, and stylish interior appointments.
The 65 Sport Yacht offers almost invisible, minimalist bridge deck and rakish tinted hull glazing. It also contains 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“: it has a comfortable chaise lounge and companion seating, or a revolutionary “Sky Helm” featuring twin-bolstered pivoting seats set very low on either side of a central console. The design includes a revolutionary steering arm that can be raised forward to ease ingress into the racing-cockpit design or locked in its elevated position for maneuvering while standing.
In addition, this model contains Volvo Penta IPS drives and an extra-wide garage with flush floor to accommodate a Jet RIB or a fully featured Beach Club.
The 88 Yacht has impressive exterior lines, and where specified, a sleek hardtop roof with central opening canopy in either canvas or tilting aluminum vanes. It accommodates eight guests and four crew, and it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 30 knots.
The 88 Yacht flybridge has a spacious deck with U-shaped seating, a feature wet bar with ice maker, a grill and two fridges, and even the possibility of an infinity spa bath with sun pad. The Beach Club with cantilevered parasol, meanwhile, can be equipped with X-TEND™ sunbeds; these items 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.
The 90 Ocean’s exterior lines have been modified to allow for a spacious Beach Club which measures over 6 m x 4 m. This model offers plentiful storage for a 4.6-m JetRib, a JetSki, and two SeaBobs in dedicated lockers. It also contains X-TEND™ seating in either its raised cockpit or lowered Beach Club configuration.
The 90 Ocean’s flybridge is a staggering 25% larger than a comparable yacht and, if specified, comes with an infinity spa pool and sideboard with second integrated BBQ. Perfect for entertaining, the space also provides a wet bar with stainless steel sink, drawer fridges, ice maker, and glass bar top.
Once inside, consumers are greeted by a considerable penthouse-style saloon, a dining area, and a galley. The 90 Ocean features a full beam Master Stateroom complete with panoramic views through its 2.5-m feature windows; the model also contains carefully designed furniture featuring sweeping curved bulkheads, textured panelling, a curved sofa, a vanity desk, and a super king slatted bed that offers additional stowage below. Behind a full-width decorative bulkhead mirror lies a 55” television.
