Project: Sunseeker 73 Manhattan

Sunseeker presents the presents the project for a 73 Manhattan, set to be launched in the coming January 2011 London Boat Show. This 73 will take top spot as new flagship of the Manhattan flybridge range and will feature a brand new hull design which allows better use throughout. A spacious interior, both in the main and lower deck levels will includes three ensuite double cabins, including a full beam midships master suite, together with a fourth twin cabin. Crew accommodation is accessed and located aft, ensuring privacy for guests, while the cabin offers accommodation for two with a separate head and shower compartment. The main saloon is situated on one level following right through to the helm position. It includes an adaptable entertainment space, providing ample seating and featuring a separate dining and galley area, and is flooded with light from the superstructure panoramic windows. The aft deck incorporates luxurious seating, including a table with the option to convert into a sunbathing space. Stairs lead to the vast flybridge area which provides great flexibility with two areas offering space to dine outside, or to sit back and enjoy the view. Ample sunbathing forward, wet bar, and full helm station with separate helm and co-pilot seat all contribute to making a very usable and practical flybridge area. The standard hydraulic platform make launch and recovery of a tender extremely easy, with this platform doubling as a fantastic water level deck when lowered. The Sunseeker 73 Manhattan is expected to have max speeds of 32 knots, and cruise at 25 with the larger engine options. For the first time Sunseeker will also be offering a joystick manoeuvring system on shafts to the 73 Manhattan, this providing greater and easier control of the vessel when docking.
