Sunseeker to shine at Southampton
British builder Sunseeker has confirmed that five new models will feature in its line-up at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show.
Sunseeker has announced that five 2021 models – including four of the ‘Famous Five’ – will be included among the models at the 52nd Southampton International Boat Show, which will be held from September 10-19.
The new models will include the Manhattan 55, Predator 55 EVO™, 65 Sport Yacht and 88 Yacht, which are all among the ‘Famous Five’ new models premiered online together earlier in May (the 90 Ocean is the other ‘Famous Five’ model and will exhibit at the Cannes Yachting Festival).
Another new model on display at Southampton will be the Predator 74 XPS, a restyled version of the current Predator flagship.
Sean Robertson, Sunseeker International’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: “We are excited to present many of the latest Sunseeker models at the Southampton International Boat Show this year.
“The last year has been busy for us as we continue to develop our world-class range and we are delighted to finally show the latest designs, technical advancements and exquisite interiors to our visitors.”
The Manhattan 55, which follows the Manhattan 68 that premiered in 2020, featured on the cover of Yacht Style Issue 58 and was the first ‘Famous Five’ model to be sold to Asia.
The Predator 55 EVO™ follows the styling introduced on the Predator 60 EVO™ introduced in late 2019. Meanwhile, the Predator 74 XPS is the first example of an XPS option offered on the flagship models of both the Predator and Sport Yacht ranges.
The 65 Sport Yacht is distinguished by its optional supercar-style SkyHelm™, which features twin bolstered seats set very low on either side of a central console.
The 88 Yacht, which is Reviewed in Yacht Style Issue 60, is one of Sunseeker’s first two models to offer the brand’s new X-TEND™ transom seating system, which can fold down to offer a large sunpad in the Beach Club or be raised and face forward into the cockpit. It also features a completely new interior layout and décor that exemplify a new level of detailing for Sunseeker.
