Project: Sunseeker 65 Manhattan

Sunseeker presents the project for a new 65 Manhattan model, with those of you being around at the currently held Southampton 2014 boat show able to see and touch hull number one. The Sunseeker 65 Manhattan continues the recent call of the British Poole based builder to cover nearly everything which is not structural with windows. That means a lot of light inside, even when you do not want it! She will be a four double cabins three heads arrangement below motor yacht. The fourth cabin gets the small size for being a twin bunk berth.  In the main deck Sunseeker presents a two step split level saloon, with an enclosed galley located behind the helm as standard. A more US style open version is also available. Interestingly Sunseeker who is usually the first of the Brits to adapt Mediterranean design trends  has so far not gone into the astern galley concept on any of its yachts.  Worth of note in the 65 Manhattan will also be an incredibly spacious flybridge. Power will be four engine choices with the most note worthy being the twin Volvo 900hp on IPS1200 forward looking pod drives.  The 65 Manhattan is so far the largest Sunseeker on pod drives. Other engine options on shaft drives start from MAN 1000hp, Cat 1150hp, and MTU 1200hp.
