New Model: Sunseeker 73 Manhattan

Sunseeker launched the new 73 Manhattan at the January London show.  The 73 Manhattan should be a replacement of the 70 model launched in 2007, and is a bit longer and offers five centimeters more to the beam.  The exterior follows Sunseeker Yacht range heritage with a very large radar arch, and windows characterizing all parts of the interior from the lower cabin area, to the main deck.  Modern amenities complement this model from a fore deck bench settee to a very large all entertainment dedicated flybridge. Below is a four stateroom plan, which surprises for having two VIP cabins to fore and to starboard.  Many choices are available inside from having a more Italian style separate galley on the main deck or open plan version, to a fourth head or utility room.  Another option is that of a three cabin plan which moves the galley to the lower deck.  A two person crew cabin is located aft.  Tender stowage is on an up and down bathing platform with Sunseeker being among the first European builders to offer this back in the days on the 56 Predator. Power is twin MAN 1550hp which can reach top speeds up to 34 knots, and 25 of cruise.  A joystick option for easy manoeuvring is also available.
