British superyacht manufacturer Sunseeker celebrated the production of 100 Manhattan 52s on Monday 29th June: the fastest selling model in the company’s history.
Since the series’ introduction at the Cannes Yachting Festival in 2016, the Manhattan 52 set a new industry benchmark for the smaller flybridge format and a new design direction for the Manhattan range.
In 2017, the Manhattan 52 won the highly-coveted ‘Best flybridge under 55ft’ award at the Motor Boat of the Year Awards and the ‘Most Innovative On-Board Design Solution’ for its Beach Club Concept at the IBI Metstrade Boat Builder Awards.
The model is designed to maximise entertainment options, light and living space throughout, with a hull that incorporates unparalleled amounts of curved glass to emphasise its sleek lines.
A standout feature that sets the Manhattan 52 apart from its peers is the glass cockpit/galley window that retracts electrically, which, alongside the bi-fold saloon doors, creates an exceptional inside/outside environment.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker International, said, “We are thrilled to reach such an important production milestone with the Manhattan 52, a model which remains our fastest selling model in Sunseeker history. The model has certainly hit a sweet spot with our customers, and we are delighted to have such a strong position in a very important segment of the market. This milestone underlines our commitment to producing an unrivalled portfolio of luxury performance motor yachts from 38 - 161 ft.”
Power comes from Volvo Penta D11-725 engines on shaft drive or Volvo Penta IPS-950, allowing for a cruising speed of 24 knots or an exhilarating 33 knots at full throttle.
