British luxury yacht builder, Sunseeker, is renowned for its tech-savvy yachts with stylish design. A pioneering firm that helped to create the motor yachts we know today, Sunseeker is continuing its tradition of hand-built, hand-finished yachts. The Sunseeker range runs the gamut of powerboats from 38 to 161 feet (11.5m to 49m). Yachts in the larger range can be completely customized to the buyer’s specifications.
From its humble beginnings to its now worldwide notoriety, Sunseeker has a proud heritage. The name is synonymous with performance and luxury. Having now built 100 yachts over 100 feet (30.48m), the builder continues to set and exceed standards, solidifying Sunseeker yachts for sale as some of the most sought-after on the market.
Sunseeker Yachts, then known as Poole Power Boats, first opened its doors in 1969 on the south coast of Poole, England. There, Robert Braithwaite conceptualized a new kind of boat that would be built utilizing new technology and materials. He based his creation on customers who envisioned a different kind of on-water experience.
After launching the Sovereign 17 and the Sovereign 20 in the early 1970s, Sunseeker solidified itself as the UK’s most significant sport and leisure boat builder. Further innovations lead to Sunseeker’s move into the Mediterranean market with yachts like the Offshore 28. This performance model truly secured Sunseeker a spot on the international stage. The subsequent Portofino 31 and Tomahawk 37 models of the 80s took their design cues straight from the dream boards of Sunseeker owners and potential buyers. Sunseeker launched the Predator 80 in the 1990s and set a new benchmark for style, performance and accommodation. At the turn of the century, Sunseeker broke into the 100-foot-plus market with the 105 Yacht. Since that momentous launch, Sunseeker has delivered more than 100 yachts larger than 100 feet (30.48m). The brand continues to use innovative techniques to push the boundaries of style, design and performance of its yachts.
“Sunseeker is one of the most well-known brands in the production yacht market. Now offering yachts from 40 to 161 feet (12.9 to 49m) in various styles, Sunseeker casts a wide net,” says Northrop & Johnson Sales Broker Wes Sanford. “The facility in the UK is possibly one of the most modern and technically advanced of all yacht manufacturers, which, in part, is necessary to keep up with demand and production. Sunseeker is proud to produce “handmade” yachts,” says Northrop & Johnson Sales Broker Joe Foggia. “As a whole, Sunseeker is one of the best builders as far as quality and reliability are concerned. Sunseeker yachts are built to withstand the rough conditions of the English Channel and the North Sea. These yachts are constructed with a Deep-V hull shape to facilitate a more comfortable ride. This combined with ultra-modern lines and hugely customizable interiors has made Sunseeker a popular global choice.”
