May 08, 2015

The eye-catching Sunseeker Predator 108 motor yacht ICU has been recently the star of the filming of three television programmes in El Gouna on the Red Sea, in the fascinating Egypt yacht vacation location.

The last week of April 2015 saw the striking superyacht ICU feature in all three productions. The TV company crew were in El Gouna to film a luxury destination show on El Gouna for French TV channel M6 and two special episodes of the highly successful French action show ‘Adrenaline’ for L’Equipe Television. During the shoot, luxury yacht ICU was moored outside the Sunseeker Egypt office on Sunseeker Island.

Sunseeker Egypt General Manager Craig Hume explains: “We were approached by the 3W producers who were looking for a luxury yacht from which they could film the TV shows and we knew their preference was for a Sunseeker. “ICU” was the obvious choice for both the Adrenaline shows and the luxury destination show, simply because it’s by far the most eye catching yacht on the Red Sea and has that real ‘wow’ factor. We approached the owner and captain, who both graciously obliged by donating the yacht with full crew for the period of the filming so we were extremely pleased.
