Sunseeker International has announced it will be launching five brand new models in January 2021. Its global premieres are the Predator 55 EVO™, Manhattan 55, 65 Sport Yacht, 88 Yacht, and 90 Ocean.
The models are the first to come to market since the company announced a £38 million (€42.5 million) investment to accelerate its new product development between 2020 and 2023.
“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,” said Andrea Frabetti, CEO.
Sunseeker says the Predator 55 EVO™ has been engineered ‘to make the heart race’ and its ‘independent helm seats in the focussed cockpit allow owners to enjoy its piercing performance in comfort’, though unpicking quite what that means is challenging. Framed by stainless steel and carbon fibre detailing, the Predator 55 EVO™ ‘sits sporty and sleek atop the water’.
The Manhattan 55, according to Sunseeker, offers ‘comfort and luxury throughout’. A key feature is said to be the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be electronically lowered to bring the outdoors in.
Meanwhile, the 65 Sport Yacht has a minimalist bridge deck and ‘rakish tinted hull glazing’. Sunseeker said its modular sport bridge can be specified as a standard sky lounge or a ‘revolutionary’ sky helm featuring twin bolstered pivoting seats set very low either side of a central console. The design includes a steering arm that can be raised forward to ease ingress into the racing-cockpit design, or locked in its elevated position for manoeuvring while standing.
Sunseeker’s 88 Yacht combines a superyacht feel with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category. She accommodates eight guests and four crew members and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 30 knots, which is rare for a yacht of this size.
The 90 Ocean is built in the company’s superyacht shipyard in Poole, and sees a 20% increase in overall volume thanks not only to her substantial beam, but also her upright bow that brings interior volume forward.
“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. 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,” said Frabetti.
