During the late-night open evening at the London International Boat Show on Thursday 14th January (6-9pm) at Excel, Sunseeker International, the world's largest privately owned yacht builder, hosted a special programme of entertainment on its stand (S040), including performances from musical ensemble, the Rat Pack, and performance troupe, the Hollywood Hoppers.
The Rat Pack is a nine-piece band with vocals who play a wide selection of music including swing, jive, Latin and retro pop tracks.
Dancing with the Rat Pack were the Hollywood Hoppers, an authentic Lindy Hop performance troupe. The Hoppers are an enthusiastic group of professional and semi-professional dancers who specialise in re-creating the dances from the roaring '20s, through the swinging '30s and '40s, to the rockin' & rollin' 1950s. They are choreographed by UK Champions, Robert and Claire Austin, who base their routines on moves from original footage to create a dynamic and exciting show.
Joining them were the Adagio Statues, two 'marble' statuesque figures set on a classical white podium who very slowly come to life through a mesmerizing fusion of strength, grace and fluid movement.
Sunseeker has launched two new motoryachts at the show including the Predator 108 special edition and the Portofino 48. The Predator 108 special edition is a truly inspirational achievement in modern shipbuilding and design. Immaculately finished and meticulously crafted, the vessel sees the essence of a legendary heritage retained whilst new benchmarks for performance, style and luxury are confidently set.
The new Portofino 48 is a worthy addition to Sunseeker's Sports Cruisers range. Ideal as a day boat and competent as an extended cruiser, the Portofino 48 is complete with all the hallmarks of Sunseeker - flowing interior lines, lively performance and luxurious features throughout.
