The 116 Yacht epitomises the next generation of larger superyachts, with her elegant lines, open plan layout and stylish interior. Based on the classic Sunseeker deep V hull, the 116 Yacht is equally comfortable operating at 10 knots for an extended cruising range of 1,250 nautical miles or at 26 knots for ultimate performance.

The 116 Yacht’s foredeck has been developed into an entertainment area, with a new ‘Club’ concept and the option of a large hot tub. Its flybridge boasts a full width, retractable sunroof, generous seating and dining area, with an expansive wet bar, sun-loungers, companion helm seating and optional hot tub. An electronically operated carbon fibre gull-wing door also provides easy access for crew from the wheelhouse to the exterior side deck. 

Inside, the 116 Yacht’s most eye-catching new design feature includes floor to ceiling glazing in the full beam master stateroom, creating bigger, brighter Owner’s accommodation affording maximum privacy. Full height glass in the saloon also combines with sleek cut away deck bulwarks to flood the living accommodation with natural daylight, bringing a sense of size and space to the interior.

The 116 Yacht enables its Owner to tailor every element of the interior design and layout to one’s personal preferences via 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. 

Sunseeker will be displaying its stunning range of beautiful motor yachts at the first show of the boating season, which includes over 500 yachts, 500 exhibitors and over 50,000 visitors in the Bay of Cannes. At Cannes Yachting Festival, Sunseeker will be showcasing the new Predator 68 MK II, the world premiere of the Manhattan 52, the 95 Yacht, the 86 Yacht and the agile performance cruiser – the San Remo.

"Sunseeker prides itself on producing the world’s finest luxury performance motor yachts, and the new generation of superyachts we are launching this year achieves that goal in stunning fashion,” says Sunseeker International Sales Director Sean Robertson. “Each new model is quintessentially and unmistakeably a Sunseeker and, without doubt, this exciting new yacht is set to be a market leader.”
