New Sunseeker motor yacht Manhattan 65 to debut at Southampton Boat Show 2014

August 29, 2014

The all-new 21-metre motor yacht Manhattan 65 by Sunseeker will make her premiere at the 2014 Southampton Boat Show this September, when she is officially presented to the world at Britain’s premier boating show.

The Sunseeker luxury yacht Manhattan 65 introduces a completely refreshed hull window design which not only gives the new flybridge model a sleek and progressive look, but also completely illuminates the interiors. Spanning from the Forward VIP to the Master Stateroom (including the ensuite bathrooms), the new hull windows offer panoramic views on the Lower Deck accommodation level. In fact, the latest window arrangements allow so much natural light to filter through to both decks of the Manhattan 65, there is almost no need for interior lighting during the day!

The feeling of expansive space, for which the Manhattan range is famed for, is evident throughout the Manhattan 65 yacht. Its new-look and cutting edge design has redefined the parameters for interiors and created a new DNA for mid-range yachts. The helm, for instance, has been redesigned to be more ergonomic, with push button controls to sit flush on the console. The new luxury yacht from Sunseeker also offers an open galley as standard, emphasising the open and familial sense of the Manhattan range. The adjacent seating provides a comfortable dining area whilst the Lower Saloon creates a genuinely inviting and social space.

The new Manhattan 65 yacht features a four cabin arrangement, and can accommodate up to eight guests and two crew, making it perfect for entertaining whether for a longer distance cruise or short trip. Attention to detail is paramount in a Sunseeker build, and the Manhattan 65 is a fantastic testament to this. The cabins exude sumptuous style, with premium materials for linings and features throughout.

The full-beam Master Cabin is a particularly striking example, with a large desk / vanity area, comfortable seating area and a generous wardrobe in addition to a stunning marble ensuite bathroom. Furthermore, the Sunseeker International design team have reconfigured the Master layout to allow for the Sleipner fin stabiliser system to be fitted. The quiet, hydraulic stabilisers work at anchor or underway, assuring a balanced and comfortable passage.

A key feature to the Manhattan range, and a reason behind its unrivalled popularity, is the spacious flybridge area. With a secondary helm alongside two seating areas and a large sunpad, the motor yacht Manhattan 65 flybridge offers extensive  space to enjoy an outdoor boating experience.

The Manhattan 65 is the largest yacht in the current Sunseeker range to offer the highly acclaimed IPS drive option, making her a fantastic choice for an Owner/Operator looking for more manoeuvrable piloting. Shaft drives are also available with twin MAN 1000, CAT 1150 or MTU 1200 engines.

Steward McIntyre to step down as Managing Director of Sunseeker

July 22, 2014

UK luxury yacht builder, Sunseeker, has announced that, after five years’ service and having led the business through successive periods of ownership, Stewart McIntyre has confirmed his decision to step down as Managing Director. He will leave the Sunseeker Group at the end of this month, to pursue other interests.

August 2013 saw Wanda Group acquire 91.81% of shares in Sunseeker International (Holdings) Limited (‘Sunseeker’). Wanda Group, owned by billionaire Wang Jianlin, who was named China’s richest person by Forbes Magazine in 2013, is a Beijing headquartered conglomerate, with strong footprints across China, Europe, as well as the US, operating mainly in four sectors, comprising commercial properties, culture and entertainments, luxury hotels and department stores. By 2013, the company had total assets of USD$62.8 bn and has been ambitious in global expansion in recent years.

To ensure the continuation of a strong management structure, Wanda Group has restated its commitment to the management and operations of Sunseeker Group and has formed a special Board Committee with responsibility for the selection and appointment of a new CEO for the Sunseeker Group. Sunseeker is also advanced with plans to appoint two independent non-executive directors to strengthen Sunseeker’s operating model and to bring further strategic expertise to the Sunseeker Board and thereby ensure the continued future success of Sunseeker’s business and its global brand.

In the interim, Wanda Group has endorsed the appointment of Robert Braithwaite CBE as Acting President of Sunseeker. Braithwaite, founder of Sunseeker, will now work alongside Sunseeker’s Executive Team and Wanda Group’s Post Merger Integration Team, who will manage the business, pending the appointment of a new CEO.

Chairman WANG Jianlin of Wanda Group commented “Wanda is committed to Sunseeker and its workforce and as such looks forward to working with the new management on initiatives that continue to build the brand. In the meantime, Wanda has already put a plan in place to transform Sunseeker to the next generation of success. Wanda will continue to provide both financial and management support to Sunseeker going forward.”

Robert Braithwaite, on behalf of the Executive Team said “Sunseeker is not just a boat manufacturer; it is a family and a global brand. We are proud of our heritage, but as a company, Sunseeker has never stood still and we will work very hard together with Wanda Group to further strengthen our leading market position, through cutting edge innovation, world class services and a global distribution network. We have huge confidence that the team in Poole, as well as the wider distributor and supplier network, will pull together as a team to take Sunseeker forward to a successful future.“

Following the successful launch of its flagship 155 Yacht superyacht BLUSH (the largest private motor yacht built in the UK) in April 2014 and as we approach the European boat show season, Sunseeker will be announcing a market leading new model program for 2015 and beyond.
