With 18 units sold before her global premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the 76 Yacht features an optional retractable glass skylight over the lower helm, allowing light to flood into the helm area and complemented by a large companion seating area to port. Natural light also flows into the main deck through extended window lines and full-height glazing on the port side.
The substantial cockpit can be adapted to provide additional lounge seating or a cocktail bar for afternoon drinks and the option of a ‘beach club’ complete with BBQ grill, fold-out seating and full height rain shower makes use of the extensive bathing platform which can house a Williams 445.
The flybridge can be enhanced by the addition of an optional spa-tub and cocktail bar. Below deck houses a full beam master suite with ensuite and a dressing area, while the crew cabin can sleep up to three people in an open-plan layout or become an enclosed double berth cabin.

The transom area features a mini beach club – an option first introduced with the Manhattan 52 in 2016 and now a Sunseeker signature feature. This area offers the built-in BBQ, ‘rain shower’ and fold-down transom seating.
The patio door, which separates the saloon from the cockpit, lowers at the flick of a switch to create an entertaining space, allowing the craft to adapt for different climates, which is enhanced by a fully opening hardtop roof over the saloon.
With speeds of up to 40 knots (depending on the engine/drive option chosen), it features six berths in three cabins, with an additional crew cabin for one, while the full beam master cabin is located amidship with ensuite, lounge seating and vanity space.
Having already sold 43 boats since its launch in January, the new model for 2017 boasts panoramic hull and saloon windows providing light-drenched living spaces throughout.
Her exterior lines flow from the bow seating and sunbathing areas to the expansive cockpit adjoining the well-equipped aft galley and saloon on the main deck. Optionally, the galley can be specified below creating an entertainment space in the main saloon.
The flybridge is equipped with extensive seating throughout, large forward sunbathing areas and a well-equipped wet-bar. Features also include a wide hydraulic bathing platform –capable of launching a Williams 385 Jet RIB – and transom ‘beach club’ where an optional BBQ, fold-down transom seat and overhead ‘rain shower’.
The optional twin-berth crew cabin has separate access through the transom and enjoys a dedicated wet room and ample stowage. Thanks to the galley being situated on the main deck, there is room enough for four cabins below including two large twin cabins, a forward VIP suite and standout full-beam master suite with a private stairway access from the saloon.
A standout feature is the main deck layout with a master cabin triplex configuration. With the master stateroom berth on the main deck, a forward staircase leads to a mid-level dressing area and en-suite.
The raised pilothouse offers flexibility contributing to the more expansive main deck layout. Above deck, the flybridge is well equipped with a second helm, bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests.
Alongside these magnificent models, Sunseeker will be showcasing the Manhattan 52, 86 Yacht and Predator 68 MK II.
Sunseeker USA will also display its exclusive range or merchandise, named the Sunseeker Collection, featuring a selection of clothing, leather goods and accessories.
