Dubai International Boat Show 2018, 27th February – 3rd March, Stand MD30
Sunseeker International, Britain’s biggest boat builder, is excited to announce three show debuts at the upcoming Dubai International Boat Show 2018 which starts on 27th February. The all-new stand and four boat display are supplied courtesy of Sunseeker Middle East, owned by the Galadari Group.
Sunseeker will be displaying a stunning selection of motor yachts at the show which is back for the 26th year and in an incredible new location at the Dubai Canal, Jumeirah. Visitors to the Dubai International Boat Show, which is considered to be the MENA region’s number one marine luxury, leisure and lifestyle event, will have the opportunity to view the following four Sunseeker yachts:
76 Yacht – Show Debut
The exciting, all-new 76 Yacht delights at every turn, delivering unprecedented levels of luxury, sociability and entertaining space and with 23 sold to-date, is already in high demand.
The 76 Yacht certainly hits the sweet spot in terms of size, space and superyacht feel whilst being extremely manageable for those looking to self-crew. Owners and prospective customers have been amazed at how the clever design maximises social and entertaining spaces, whilst the innovative use of glass enhances natural light, making this a bright and airy boat to relax and unwind in with family and friends.
The optional retractable glass skylight over the lower helm affords an open boat experience, allowing light to flood into the helm area and is complemented by a large companion seating area opposite. Natural light also flows into the main deck through extended window lines and unique full-height glazing on the port side, making the dining area a spectacular place to entertain with incredible views over the water.
The customer trend for enjoying more of the exterior spaces has been embraced by Sunseeker too. For life ‘al fresco’ her exterior decks, now with 25% more space than her predecessor, provide unprecedented levels of flexibility, with dedicated foredeck dining and sun bed areas complemented by an optional pram hood canopy and drawer refrigeration. The substantial cockpit can be specified to provide additional lounge seating or a cocktail bar for afternoon drinks, whilst the option of the award-winning ‘Beach Club’ complete with BBQ grill, fold-out seating and full height ‘rain shower’ makes full use of the transom area and hydraulic bathing platform, which is large enough to carry a Williams 445 tender.
The expansive flybridge is another exceptional feature of the 76 Yacht, and the impressive layout can be further enhanced by the addition of an optional spa-tub and cocktail bar to further complement that ‘superyacht’ feel.
The light and space continues below deck, where there are four sumptuous en suite cabins, including an impressive full beam master suite with a dressing area. The spacious crew cabin can accommodate up to three people in an open-plan layout or can be specified with an enclosed double berth cabin.
95 Yacht – Show Debut
The 95 Yacht’s innovative layout, striking lines and fresh design direction have become synonymous with the company’s next generation of larger yachts.
The 95 Yacht’s stunning lines and unique layout exemplifies the latest in Sunseeker’s cutting-edge design and innovative build processes. Its spacious elegance combines a superyacht feel with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category.
A standout feature is its unique main deck layout with a special master cabin triplex configuration, offering even greater flexibility and space from a class above. With the luxurious master stateroom berth on the main deck, a forward staircase leads to a mid-level dressing area and sumptuous en-suite.
The raised pilot house offers greater flexibility, contributing to the more expansive main deck layout which is truly remarkable for this size of yacht. Above deck, the spacious flybridge is well equipped with a second helm, bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests to be entertained in style. As with all Sunseeker’s new models, the 95 Yacht is based on the classic deep V hull with unrivalled performance at its heart.
Manhattan 66 – Show Debut
This innovative new model, which launched in 2017, is designed to maximise space and entertainment options, with exceptional panoramic hull and saloon windows providing light-drenched living spaces throughout. Its deep V hull offers signature Sunseeker performance and impeccable seakeeping, whilst the impressive layout provides ample space on board to rival much larger yachts.
Throughout the main deck, there is a strong focus on creating generous, usable open-plan, sociable spaces. Her exterior lines flow effortlessly from the bow seating and sunbathing areas to the impressive cockpit adjoining the well-equipped aft galley and saloon on the main deck. Optionally, the galley can be specified below, creating an even more expansive entertainment space in the main saloon.
The newly configured flybridge also creates the feeling that you are on board a much larger craft and has been designed with relaxation in mind, with extensive seating throughout, large forward sunbathing areas and a well-equipped wet-bar. Clever design continues through to the wide hydraulic bathing platform (capable of launching a Williams 385 Jet RIB) and transom ‘beach club’, where an optional BBQ, fold-down transom seat and overhead ‘rain shower’ truly set the Manhattan 66 apart from its peers.
The optional twin-berth crew cabin has separate access through the transom and enjoys a dedicated wet room and ample stowage. Thanks to the galley being situated on the main deck, there is room enough for four very spacious cabins below, including two large twin cabins, a forward VIP suite and standout full-beam master suite with its own private stairway access from the saloon; a first for Sunseeker in this size range.
The Manhattan 52 is devised to maximise entertainment options, light and living space throughout the boat. Its hull incorporates unparalleled amounts of curved glass to emphasise its sleek lines and bring the outside in.
The unique layout of the main deck makes this the perfect boat for entertaining in style; with a strong focus on creating fun and easy-to-use sociable spaces. From the generous saloon and upper aft galley, through to the social seating at the helm, this exceptional layout allows the owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces.
A standout feature that truly sets the Manhattan 52 apart from its peers is the electric glass cockpit/galley window that retracts seemlessly which, alongside the bi-fold saloon doors, creates an exceptional inside/outside environment. The convertible helm seating area is another new feature, designed to enhance life onboard as it allows owners to fold the seats forward at the flick of a switch to provide an incredibly large saloon seating area.
Thanks to the galley being situated on the main deck, there is space for three very large cabins below. The master cabin is a real standout feature for a boat of this size, with full height headroom all the way around the bed, demonstrating yet again the attention Sunseeker has given to creating exceptional living spaces. Interior fabric and décor selections remain peerless, delivering a quality that is unprecedented; a reputation that is unmatched.
Lastly, the ‘Beach Club’ option of BBQ griddle, overhead ‘rain shower’ and fold down transom seating is the must-have feature. From starting the concept in 2015, the Manhattan 52 was instrumental in winning the recent 2017 IBI/Metstrade Boat Builder Award for ‘Innovative On-board Design Solution’. Proof yet again that world-class design is at the core of every Sunseeker model.
