Sunseeker 100 Yacht set for autumn
After starting the year with the release of the ‘Famous Five’ models, the British builder is now preparing to launch the first 100 Yacht this autumn, having secured several early orders.
Sunseeker has announced four orders for the all-new 100 Yacht, with hull one scheduled to launch in the autumn. Standout features include a single-level upper deck from flybridge to foredeck, a forward master stateroom with a private bow terrace and a large beach club with Sunseeker’s innovative new X-Tend™ system.
Furthermore, the 97ft 11in motor yacht with a 22ft 8in beam has a sub-24m load line length, which reduces the costs and crew requirements of 24m-plus classification. The 100 Yacht has been awarded CE Category A/Ocean status.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO of Sunseeker, said: “The 100 Yacht is a remarkable example of bespoke refinement and has been crafted with the passion and precision only found at Sunseeker. It abounds with innovative new features and entertainment options including an industry-defining open-plan, bow-to-stern entertainment flybridge and a master stateroom with private access to its terrace at the bow.
“It’s truly mesmerising and a proud reflection of the extraordinary talent of our in-house design, engineering and production teams. Falling within the 24m-load line ruling, the 100 Yacht maximises on everything, delivering an experience for the owner that cannot be surpassed.”
Powered by twin MTU 12V 2000 M96X engines as standard or MTU 16V 2000 M96L as an option, the 100 Yacht can reach up to 29 knots and has a range of 1,300nm at 12 knots, with a fuel capacity of 12,800 litres.
The tender garage can accommodate a Williams 460 Sportjet and GTX255 jet-ski, with extra stowage for Seabobs, diving equipment and paddleboards. The beach club includes an oversized rain shower and large built-in barbecue, while the X-TEND™ seating faces aft in its lowered position or, at the flick of a switch, forward at cockpit level. A hydraulic ladder passarelle aids access to watersports.
Accessed by dual teak staircases, the aft cockpit offers free-standing or fixed seating variations, an integrated wet bar with a fridge, ice maker, stainless-steel sink and storage lockers.
The vast flybridge has L-shaped seating, a wet bar and space for a spa bath and accompanying sunpads or free-standing loungers. A second helm station can be specified on the flybridge, while wing stations are fitted as standard. A new hardtop design is available with glazing or retractable tilting slats for added shade control.
The flybridge leads to the foredeck via walk-around access on both sides. Forward of the raised pilot house, the foredeck has two separate seating arrangements, an oversized sunpad, storage and refrigeration options, and can transform into an open-air cinema with laser projector and 140-inch screen.
On the main deck, the saloon has floor-to-ceiling glazing, sliding doors to starboard, L-shaped sofa, 55in TV and sideboard for ample storage. Forward is a dining area for eight guests, while a feature wall showcases exposed and seemingly floating stair treads leading to the wheelhouse above and lower deck. The large galley is forward to port and offers direct side deck access for crew.
The full-beam master stateroom is forward and has a large lobby entrance, walk-in wardrobe with feature shelving, an office and a generous en-suite with twin washbasins and rain shower. Owners can also access a first-in-class bow terrace for ultimate privacy through a cleverly sculptured, fully-glazed sliding door forward. The lower deck has four guest cabins and the crew quarters.
