We look forward to meeting our existing and new clientele at the show”Sean Robertson, Sales and Marketing Director at Sunseeker International
Global Debut: 100 Yacht
The 100 Yacht revolutionises the Sunseeker Yacht range, earmarking the start of a new era in flybridge design and functionality for the British yard. With new entertainment features at the fore, the 100 Yacht offers great versatility with a truly global appeal. The sweeping flybridge, with complete walk-around access from bow to stern, is one of the exceptional entertainment areas that defines the 100 Yacht. The vast space on the flybridge is cleverly zoned to offer seamless entertainment. The foredeck has two separate seating arrangements with cinema screen capability, while the central flybridge has L-shaped seating, a fully equipped wet bar and space aft for free-standing furniture or a spa bath.
The 22-foot beam adds significant interior volume feeling much larger than a 100-footer, matched by interior features typically found in bespoke superyachts. The full-beam master suite situated on the main deck benefits from floor to ceiling windows port and starboard as well as an exceptional glass atrium door forward, leading to an owner’s private bow terrace.
Powered by MTU 12V 2000 M96X or MTU 16V 2000 M96L, the 100 Yacht reaches speeds of up to 29 knots and has a range of 1,300 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Reflecting its enormous strength and design capability, the yacht has been awarded CE Category A/Ocean status.
European Debut: Predator 65
The all-new Predator 65 benefits from next-generation technology designed to make boating even more pleasurable. Installed with the latest Volvo Penta IPS System with their fully integrated pilot, engine data and navigation systems, the Predator 65 is an intuitive motor yacht capable of effortless manoeuvring and easy handling for new boat owners.
A single piece windshield and newly designed carbon fibre sunroof floods the main deck with an abundance of natural light, bringing the owner closer to the elements than previous models.
The dramatic exterior is a striking blend of tinted glazing, teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel, perfectly balancing traditional Sunseeker design concepts with cutting-edge material innovation to create a dynamic performance model.
In a standard arrangement, the aft cockpit comprises of comfortable seating backed onto a large sun pad over the garage and a social bar unit with matching stools on the port side. Owners can opt for a fully integrated wet bar or extended C-shaped lounge seating running aft from the galley across the width of the cockpit if desired. This new model benefits from an optional crew cabin, accessed via a dedicated stairwell in the aft cockpit.
Below deck, the three-cabin layout provides accommodation for up to six guests. A spacious, full-beam master stateroom features a generous en-suite, while the thoughtfully designed forward VIP cabin provides an equally comfortable haven for guests. Each guest cabin has an en-suite, and there is a separate day-head below. Optionally, an open-plan owner’s office linked to the master stateroom, a single-berth cabin, lower deck galley or saloon can be specified, delivering flexibility for any owner.
An extra-wide tender garage allows a Williams 345 jet tender to be carried and launched via a new diagonal sliding hydraulic bathing platform. The additional garage space can store Seabobs, inflatable paddleboards, diving equipment or racking. If specified as a Beach Club, the fully flush floor lends itself to free-standing furniture with a rain shower, lighting and speakers built into the opened door.
Altogether, the Predator 65 combines power and performance with generous cabins and a striking interior, offering a one-of-a-kind owner experience.
