Sunseeker International has confirmed the first of its new flagship tri-deck 155 Yacht is nearing completion and is due to launch in early 2014. The eagerly anticipated super yacht has been the talk of the town since it was first announced last year, and with the first delivery tantalizingly close the hype is reaching fever pitch.
The first 155 Yacht to ease out of the Sunseeker factory in Poole has been commissioned by Formula 1 star, Eddie Jordan, who has embraced every opportunity to stamp his unique marque on the first ever 155 Yacht.
The new 155 Yacht’s innovative design and build process allows its owners a virtually free-hand when designing the yacht to their own specification and boasts an impressive range of up to 4500 nautical miles.
With the 155 Yacht, Sunseeker takes the concept of series building with personal customisation one step further with a modular build methodology which enables the owners to have direct input not only to the interior design and layout but the actual superstructure of the yacht. The 155 Yacht itself will boast impressive accommodation for up to 12 guests in ultimate style and luxury, while the forward lower deck area can accommodate up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin.
The 155 Yacht is the biggest project ever undertaken by Sunseeker International and is the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge and long keel hull from the company, at below 500 gross tonnes the 155 Yacht’s RINA commercial and MCA LY2 coding eliminates the need for full ISM coding.
Beyond the impressive statistics it is the contemporary interior and exterior design which truly makes the 155 Yacht stand out from the crowd. Hull number one will have a completely painted exterior, featuring a stunning ice blue hull. While the unique interior will feature an exclusive design palette which highlights gray, blue, green and an overall chic aqua feel.
The accommodation on the 155 Yacht is equally as stunning, with two VIP cabins on the main deck which feature ceiling to floor glass windows creating a dramatic feeling of light and space, as well as spectacular views.
The first 155 Yacht will also include a formal dining area with side patio doors, balconies for uninterrupted sea views whilst dining and a fully equipped commercial galley.
While the spacious and stylish private accommodation is clearly one of the most appealing features of Sunseeker’s flagship yacht it is the expanse of entertainment space which makes it truly stand out. The upper deck alone features a huge sky lounge which can be dedicated to private entertainment.
