Hailing from Poole, England, as Poole Power Boats, Sunseeker Yachts began its yacht manufacturing activities in the 1980s. Featuring a race-derived deep-V hull, Sunseeker Yachts delights owners with their wInd-in-the-hair sporting performance as well as comfort and bold design aesthetics. In just four decades, they have evolved from a 17-foot dayboat to a 150-foot luxury megayacht, a testament to their dedication to growth, change, and innovation in design, performance, and technology. In fact, Sunseeker craft have been featured in the last four James Bond movies.
Now a competitive world-class luxury yacht builder, Sunseeker can be built to full MCA and RINA specification. With global reach, 98 percent of their vessels manufactured in Poole and in Portland find their way abroad in 61 countries where they are sold. Sunseeker’s new Technology Centre has increased production efficiency and manufacturing capabilities, including a new lacquering facility using state-of-the-art equipment for interior woodwork.
Sunseeker currently offers many luxury yacht models for discerning yachting enthusiasts. The Flybridge Motoryachts—the Sunseeker Manhattan 53, the Sunseeker Manhattan 63, and the Sunseeker Manhattan 73—present spacious luxury in an open-deck sportsboat. The Sunseeker Performance models combine luxury with sport cruising performance in the entry level Sunseeker Portofino and Sunseeker Predator series that ranges from the Predator 53 to the Predator 130. Notably, the Predator 80 is scheduled to launch in the fall of 2012 with options in for serious speed or more comfortable cruising.
Sunseeker’s traditional yachts range from the Sunseeker 80 yacht to the new Sunseeker 28 Metre with its ultra modern materials and revolutionary use of space and Sunseeker 155, a tri-deck beauty set to launch in 2014, the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge and long keel hull for the builder.
