The spectacular Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht has been honoured with the prominent Motor Boat of the Year Award 2013 in the ‘Best Custom Yacht’ category, beating off competition from some of the world’s best builders from across the world, comprising Princess, Arcadia as well as Ferretti. Taken place at London’s Savoy on 14th January 2013, the award was presented to celebrate the best boats in the world today.
The 28 Metre Yacht, which launched in January 2012, uses ultra-modern materials to reach new heights in design and engineering excellence. Her revolutionary use of space incorporates full height and wrap-around glazing to create a stunning effect both inside and out.
The judging panel commented: “The Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht combines dramatic new looks with high-tech materials, strong performance, eye catching features and great liveability…and for the first time ever it’s British.”
Robert Braithwaite, Group President of Sunseeker International said: “We are delighted that the 28 Metre Yacht has been recognised with such a prestigious award. It is testament to the passion, talent and hard-work of the Sunseeker team who put so much into every yacht we make.
The 28 Metre Yacht’s spectacular use of space incorporates a vast saloon in the centre of the yacht, with a range of cabin plans to accommodate up to eight guests and four crew. And with a maximum speed of up to 29 yachts, and a range of 400 nautical miles, the stunning yacht delivers Sunseeker’s famous ‘wind in the hair’ performance.
The Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht was nominated alongside the all-new Portofino 40 in the Best Sports Cruiser category.
The Motor Boat of the Year Awards are judged by the world-renowned editorial team at Motor Boats Monthly and Motor Boat & Yachting magazines.
