New Model: Sunseeker 53 Manhattan

Sunseeker presented the new 53 Manhattan in Cannes.  This new model is an evolution of the 52 Manhattan with larger windows on the main deck, and the full beam owners suite and a modified interior, exterior plan. The hull has also been changed in order to increase volumes inside. The modification in the interior effect all areas; the third guest cabin now is not a bunk but features two in line berths, and the VIP suite to fore also feels roomier thanks to extra height.  The owners stateroom is also now a full headroom all around, again thanks to better use of height in this model.  A crew cabin is available aft.  An option is also available for the aft with a small sun pad and C-shaped settee being standard, or a large sunbed taking full space here.  The flybridge is also roomier and features a large C-shape dinette to aft, wet bar and sun lounger to port, and a two person seat helm station.  Power is from twin diesel engines up to 800hp, which give top speeds up to 31 knots.
