Even if it is a cliché, the phrase “You’ve come a long way baby” succinctly sums up the story of Sunseeker. The English company that started out as a builder of trailerable day boats has morphed into a superpower on the global marine scene, as it's a leading manufacturer of custom and semi-custom cruisers and superyachts sized from 40 feet at the low end to a colossal 40-meter tri-deck flagship. (A 55-meter is slated for release in 2014.)
Over the years, the builder has hit many milestones–among them the early collaboration with Don Shead to develop the race-derived deep-V hulls that have become a Sunseeker trademark–and sealed a reputation for delivering performance along with uber-luxurious appointments and imaginative, even sensational style. The four-decade evolution has been rapid and, according to the company, is the result of this UK builder’s philosophy to embrace change at all costs. By taking risks (Sunseeker embraced technologies like Duoprops and Arneson drives early on) the company has positioned itself as a world-class leader in contemporary yacht design.
Seductive. Inspirational. Versatile. The tri-deck Sunseeker 40 Metre Yacht epitomizes everything that is Sunseeker. Accommodating up to twelve guests in sublime surroundings, the sheer scale and layout of this immense yacht is awe-inspiring. Expertly finished using ultra-modern materials and techniques, the 40 Metre Yacht is one of the finest examples of modern day motor boat building. The main deck features a lounge, separate dining area and full galley, while on the upper deck you’ll find the sky lounge, cocktail bar and access to the skydeck; where comfort and lavishness reach new levels. As impressive out in open water as it is in the harbour, this icon of design is unlike any other.
