The sunny weather and the casual Mediterranean atmosphere of the Palma harbor was one reason for the good atmosphere among exhibitors and visitors. The Super Yacht Show scored with its new look, the sales team was positively impressed by the maritime atmosphere and announced promising contacts made through the event.

The remarkable model of the new and biggest Sunseeker ever built, the 155 Yacht superyacht Blush was for sure a highlight of the Sunseeker stand, inviting many people to stop by. The 155 Yacht had just recently been handed over to its new owner, Eddie Jordan. The success of the 155 feet yacht speaks for itself, two more have already been ordered.

Additional shine was delivered to the event with the visit of the water-enthusiastic Spanish Queen Sofia, who took up the opportunity to make herself a picture of the still young boat show.

“Through the new concept of the Super Yacht Show, we were able to gain many interesting contacts”, says Torsten Sieckmann, Director of Marketing & Sales at Sunseeker Mallorca.

However, these events, as Sieckmann points out, are likely important for the company to be used as a platform to communicate and share information with many of the long-term customers. Due to the generally positive response, and the potential of the show to establish itself in the coming years as one of the top events in the super yacht sector in Europe, Sunseeker Mallorca is already looking forward to its participation next year.

Since 2012 Sunseeker Germany operates under the name Sunseeker Mallorca on the Balearic Island. Just recently the Sunseeker Germany AG announced that it will shift its longtime headquarter from Hamburg to Mallorca, Port Adriano and Neustadt/Holstein in Germany. This change will not only allow the company to be even closer to the customers, but also offers greater business flexibility. The completion of the new offices in Port Adriano, which is associated with the relocation, is planned for this summer.

April 23, 2014

Sunseeker Germany is proud to announce that they have delivered the Predator 80 motor yacht ‘Skyfall’ to her new Owners. The successful delivery of the new superyacht Skyfall took place in Mallorca‘s Puerto Portals on Friday, April 18, 2014.

Last Friday, Cornelius Kistler successfully completed the handover of 1950ps strong ‘Skyfall’, built in 2013 in Poole/UK, to its new owner. Style, luxury and comfort remain at the heart of Skyfall, the 24.90-meter long yacht can accommodate up to eight guests, with additional crew quarters in the stern, and wins with an exceptional, bright interior, its sportive line, and its futuristic cockpit.

For the stylish interior only high-end materials were used, selected according to the individual preferences of the owner. Thus, Skyfall yacht reflects the personal style of its owner, who had a clear vision on building this light-flooded yacht. Together with the shipyard in Poole, Sunseeker Germany could accomplish this vision of the owner, making Skyfall absolutely unique.

The aspect of light in terms of design can be felt throughout the new Predator 80 superyacht Skyfall, from its impressive panoramic hull windows that flood the cabin with light, through to the visible carbon fiber, which hints at the Predator’s performance pedigree. The master stateroom exemplifies the consistent high standards of detail and finish, with a fantastic new wood finish, walk in wardrobe and stunning vanity units.

A special feature of this performance yacht is the Spa Pool on the foredeck – for a panoramic view of the extra class. More recreational space for sunbathing can be found on the areas at the bow and stern, while the seating areas invite you to a laid-back aperitif in the afternoon sun. If the sunlight nevertheless is becoming too intense, the hydraulic bimini-top offers pleasant shadow.

However, style doesn’t come at the cost of practicality. The Predator 80 yacht Skyfall offers spacious increased deck storage, and a larger tender garage that can hold a Williams 445 jet yacht tender.

With the performance option of Twin Arneson drives coupled with twin 16V 2000 M14 MTUs the Predator 80 luxury yacht Skyfall will leave the competition in its wake at a top speed of up to 45 knots, while the standard engine options deliver an impressive 30-40 knots. And with the optional joystick maneuvering system, the Predator 80’s close quarter handling is extremely agile in even the tightest situations.
