The first model of the 30-metre flybridge is now in production, with four orders confirmed
Fresh from the quintuple global premiere of its ‘Famous Five’ models last month, Britain’s Sunseeker has revealed images of its new Sunseeker 100 flybridge, which is scheduled for launch in autumn 2021.
The first model sold in 2020 and is now in production, with four orders confirmed.
The 29.8-metre Sunseeker 100 was designed in-house and is powered by MTU 12V 2000 M96X as standard or MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines as an option, and can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests and five crew, reaching speeds of up to 29 knots. The yacht has been awarded CE Category A/Ocean status.
“This new model is abounding 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,” says Sunseeker CEO Andrea Frabetti.
“It’s a proud reflection of the extraordinary talent of our in-house design, engineering, and production teams. Falling within the 24-metre load line ruling, this yacht maximizes everything, delivering an experience for the owner that cannot be surpassed.”
Some of the highlights of the new Sunseeker 100 include a master stateroom forward with a private bow terrace, sunbathing hideaways, an impressive single-level exterior deck from the flybridge to foredeck, an elegant open-plan interior and a spacious beach club.
The large tender garage can accommodate a Williams 460 Sportjet and GTX255 jet ski, with enough storage for SeaBobs, diving equipment and paddleboards.
The innovative ‘X-tend’ system offers several seating arrangements, facing aft in its lowered position or, at the flick of a switch, forward at cockpit level.
The aft cockpit, accessed by two teak staircases, offers an array of free-standing or fixed seating variations to suit owner preference, an integrated wet bar with a fridge, ice maker, stainless steel sink and storage lockers.
The flybridge offers uninterrupted walk-around access on both sides. With generous L-shaped seating, a fully equipped wet bar and space for a spa bath and accompanying sunpads or free-standing loungers, the flybridge is an ideal space for entertaining.
The foredeck provides another social space with two separate seating arrangements plus an oversized sunpad, complete with ample storage and refrigeration options.
Later in the day, the foredeck can transform into an open-air cinema with a laser projector and a 140-inch screen. A new hardtop design is available with glazing or retractable tilting vains for added shade control.
Meanwhile, owners can make use of an oversized rain shower and large built-in barbeque, as well as an impressive transformational sunbed. The innovative X-tend system offers several seating arrangements, facing aft in its lowered position or, at the flick of a switch, forward at cockpit level.
Accessed by dual teak staircases, the substantial aft cockpit offers an array of free-standing or fixed seating variations to suit owner preference, an integrated wet bar with a fridge, ice maker, stainless steel sink and ample storage lockers.
The luxurious master stateroom forward on the main deck has a large lobby entrance, walk-in wardrobe with feature shelving, an office and a generous en suite with twin washbasins and a rain shower. Owners can also access a private bow terrace.
The crew cabin is worthy of mention, featuring a Captain’s cabin with en suite, a twin with en suite, a highly specified crew mess and laundry appliances.
Sunseeker recently announced a £38m (HK$393m) investment to accelerate its new product development between 2020 and 2023.
In August 2013 a majority stake in the business was acquired by Wanda Group, the Beijing headquartered conglomerate with strong footprints across China, Europe and the US.
