Fairline, Sunseeker Confirm Yachts for BOATS2020 in Southampton


British builders unveil line-ups for British Marine-organised event at Mayflower Park.

Sunseeker is scheduled to show its new Manhattan 68 – which debuted at Boot Dusseldorf in January – among six yachts at the new BOATS2020 show, which will be held at Mayflower Park in Southampton from September 11-20.

Held in place of the cancelled Southampton International Boat Show, the register-only event is expected to feature about 80-90 yachts.
A Sunseeker 95 Yacht is expected to be the show’s biggest boat, while the Poole builder’s display will also include a 76 Yacht, 74 Sport Yacht, Predator 50 and Predator 60 EVO™, a model launched last year.

What do you get the yachtsman who has everything? How about a yacht that can store it all. The aft end of the Sunseeker Manhattan 68 has been attracting serious buyers and ogling onlookers since the model debuted at Boot Dusseldorf earlier this year followed by its US debut at the Miami Yacht Show.

 Sean Robertson, Sunseeker’s Sales Director, said: “Sunseeker is excited to confirm our participation at BOATS2020, with an on-land hospitality suite and six boats from 50-95ft in our water display.

“We will be working closely together with British Marine to provide a safe, controlled environment in which all guests can enjoy the experience and in doing so making BOATS2020 a real success.”

Fairline, based inland in Oundle, will show its flagship Squadron 68, Squadron 50, Targa 45 Open and F//Line 33.

 Later in the month, the builder will then display its iconic F//Line 33 at Salon Privé, the UK’s most exclusive motor show, which will be held at Blenheim Palace outside Oxford from September 23-26.

Peter McNulty, COO of Fairline Yachts, said: “We are looking forward to attending Salon Privé with the debut of the F//Line 33, our award-winning luxurious dayboat.

“We know that many of the attendees love boats just as much as they do cars, and we’re sure her stunning styling, sporty performance and quality craftsmanship will appeal.”
