With one of the industry’s largest international boat shows just a short drive down the road, it is by no means a coincidence that the Sunseeker France Group will also be displaying a selection of pre-owned boats to coincide this September.

Running parallel to the Monaco Yacht Show, this is a chance for clients to view the showcase of selected craft from 40ft to 84ft.

The talk of the show will undoubtedly be the 2011 Sunseeker Predator 84 motor yacht “FIRECRACKER”, a yacht which reflects Sunseeker’s cutting-edge development in performance yacht design. With a sports flybridge and a dining / seating area on the bow, accommodation on board is fully maximised. Below, clever design has created four spacious ensuite cabins.

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.
