Sunseeker To Celebrate Best Of British In Cannes
Published: Tuesday, 25 August 2015
Sunseeker International is looking forward to treating visitors to the best of British at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival (Sept 8-13).
Eight of the brand’s luxury performance motor yachts will be on display and the show will also see Sunseeker mark an important milestone.
The Predator 57 will be making its show debut and visitors will have the opportunity to explore this and other models from across the range, including the versatile and elegant Manhattan 55, the powerful 115 Sport Yacht and the 86 Yacht.
Guests will also be able to learn more about three new models set for launch in early 2016: the 131 Yacht, 116 Yacht and 95 Yacht.
The highlight of the show will be marking the delivery of its 100th luxury performance yacht in the 100-foot plus superyacht category. Owners and special guests from across the globe will attend a VIP champagne breakfast event on September 9 to celebrate this achievement which signals a true coming of age for the British brand.
The launch of Sunseeker’s first 100ft+ model, the 105 Yacht in the summer of 2000, was the initial step in the brand’s progress towards becoming a major player in the superyacht sector. Since then, Sunseeker’s 100ft+ offering has rapidly evolved and now extends from the sleek and powerful 101 Sport Yacht to the majestic flagship 155 Yacht, with a diverse range of options in between.
“We are really looking forward to displaying our iconic range of luxury performance motor yachts at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and delighted to be celebrating the delivery of 100 luxury yachts over 100 feet,” says Sunseeker Sales Director Sean Robertson. “This major milestone for the business will be celebrated with Sunseeker owners at the show and we’ll also be sharing more details of the exciting new models set for launch in 2016.”
The British yacht manufacturer will also have a strong presence at the Southampton Boat Show (Sept 11-20). In addition to the Cannes show line-up, Southampton will be presenting the San Remo, 75 Yacht and Manhattan 65.
Sunseeker will also be showcasing exhibits from some of the greatest creative brands in the UK, as it hosts the GREAT Creativity exhibition in the VIP area of its stand. Items on display will include a gown hand-crafted by British Couture designer, Nicholas Oakwell, a unique GREAT Mulberry handbag designed by British model Cara Delavigne, and a bespoke handcrafted watch by Roger Smith, Independent Watchmaker.

“We are really looking forward to displaying our iconic range of luxury performance motor yachts at this year’s Southampton Boat Show,” says Sunseeker Marketing Manager Bryan Jones. “The show is a real highlight of the international boating calendar and an opportunity for British brands to showcase the very best of what they have to offer to the world. The team look forward to showing visitors around our range and telling them more about the exciting new models we have lined up for launch in the coming year.”
