Sunseeker To Launch 131 Yacht At London Boat Show
Published: Wednesday, 11 November 2015
British yacht manufacturer Sunseeker International is set to launch the anticipated 131 Yacht at the London Boat Show 2016 (Jan 8-17).
At 40-metres, the 131 will be the largest model to debut at the London show, and will appear alongside a stunning collection of other Sunseeker models ranging from 50 feet upwards.
The groundbreaking new 131 Yacht takes Sunseeker’s superyacht capabilities to new levels and is the first of three large models set for launch in early 2016. The 131 will be joined in London by seven other boats including the innovative Predator 57.
Demand for the yacht is already high with the first five already sold. Exclusive pictures released earlier this year revealed the quality and attention to detail that have gone into this innovative new take on Sunseeker’s proven superyacht platform.
A standout feature is the addition of feature glass in the master stateroom, saloon and upper saloon to create a relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable environment for owner and guests.
The 131 Yacht enables its owner to tailor every element of the interior design and layout to their personal preferences through Sunseeker’s unique ‘Bespoke’ service. Standard guest configuration is for 10 guests in five cabins, with scope for up to 12 to be accommodated depending on the layout and options selected. The spacious garage can accommodate a tender of up to 6.0m in length plus two PWCs.
Based on the classic Sunseeker deep V hull, this large tri-deck yacht is equally comfortable operating at 10 knots for an extended cruising range of 1,500 nautical miles or at 23 knots for ultimate performance. Build time for each new 131 Yacht is around one year, with capacity in place to have up to five yachts in build simultaneously.
"The London Boat Show is always extremely exciting and draws a truly international selection of clients,” says Sunseeker International Sales Director Sean Robertson. “I am delighted we are launching this special new yacht, the first – and largest – of four new Sunseeker models set to debut in 2016.”
