Manhattan 55 – US Debut
Exemplifying the latest in Sunseeker’s exceptional design capabilities, the Manhattan 55 enhances comfort and cruising whilst providing owners with several social spaces from the vast flybridge to the generous saloon. The open-plan layout allows owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertainment spaces.
A key feature that truly sets the Manhattan 55 apart from its peers is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be lowered at the touch of a button. With the adjacent cockpit door open, this feature creates an exceptional inside/outside environment. The interiors boast exquisite attention to detail with a new palate of upholstery that provides a contemporary look. The lighting design is considered throughout and includes concealed lighting within ceiling panels and furniture. Powered by new Volvo Penta D13-800 engines, the Manhattan 55 can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 230 nautical miles or achieve more than 30 knots at full throttle.

65 Sport Yacht – US Debut
The 65 Sport Yacht is fundamentally different from the current Sunseeker range in the 60ft segment due to its sculptured exterior design, innovative SkyHelm™ and stylish interior appointments. Rakish hull glazing enhances the sleek exterior profile, with an almost invisible minimalist bridge deck, emphasising her modern sporting prowess whilst increasing natural light into the lower deck spaces. The dramatic exterior is a striking blend of tinted glazing, synthetic teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel, perfectly balancing traditional Sunseeker design concepts with cutting-edge material innovation to create a dynamic performance model.
Central to this yacht’s appeal, owners can specify the revolutionary and exceptionally innovative ‘SkyHelm™’. Featuring twin bolstered seats set very low on either side of a central console, the instrumentation is courtesy of a state-of-the-art glass bridge plotter complete with retro chrome dials housing LED displays. This design sets off a modern fully-carbon steering arm that the driver can raise to ease ingress into the racing cockpit or locked in a raised position for helming while standing. Cleverly, both helm seats can pivot aft for socialising, while the windscreen can also tilt up and down depending on the driver’s preference and desire to connect to the elements. Altogether, the experience is one of pure adrenaline, akin to driving a high-performance convertible supercar.
