The new Manhattan 52 from Sunseeker won the ‘Best flybridge under 55ft’ award at the Motor Boat of the Year Awards. The model has secured record sales since its launch in autumn, with £80m of retail forward orders – making the yacht Sunseeker’s fastest selling model to date.

The Sunseeker team behind the award-winning Manhattan 52, including colleagues from design, build, engineering and the executive team, all joined together to celebrate the achievement.

Phil Popham, CEO at Sunseeker, commented: “The Manhattan 52 is our fastest selling model to date, with over 80 orders taken for 2017 and 2018. The Manhattan 52 sets a new industry benchmark for the smaller flybridge format and makes an important statement about Sunseeker’s continued focus on new product development and innovation.”

The Manhattan 52 enables its owner to enjoy the sumptuous space the open layout provides. From the saloon and upper aft galley, through to the social seating at the helm, this layout allows the owner and guests to move easily between entertaining spaces.

The design and engineering team worked on the standout features, the glass cockpit/galley window that retracts electrically and, alongside the bi-fold saloon doors, creates an inside/outside environment, complete with bar stools and serving counter.

The yacht also showcases a well-equipped bathing platform and transom area that can be converted into a mini beach club.
