New Model: Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht

Sunseeker definitely shows a lot of innovation pursuit in this new model which was officially presented at the start year January held London boat show.  To sum it up shorty the 28 Metre Yacht by Sunseeker makes most other modern looking yachts look old.  This new pocket sized super Sunseeker yacht is innovative in many areas, you can start by the use of Kevlar materials for the upper structure, the loads of glassed window surfaces in all areas, the settee and sun bed filled fore deck area, and active fin stabilizers for stability at anchor or slow displacement speeds.  Inside Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht again show pursuit of innovation with a layout which has separate entrances for the forward located VIP suite and owners stateroom which are in the forward part of the lower accommodation deck, to the central midships two other guest cabins. Spaces abound in this new Sunseeker which makes them seem also larger thanks to the huge large windows everywhere which makes for all areas being all natural light filled.  Power is from twin MTU 1950hp which will give a 29 knots max.  But other smaller engine options are available, although Sunseeker does not say what they are.
