New Model: Sunseeker 66 Manhattan

Doing its World launch at the January 2017 London boat show this new 66 Manhattan is the next chapter for Sunseeker medium large flybridge line. After seeing success with the 2016 launched 52 Manhattan, Sunseeker does a revamp for its Manhattan flybridge series, which equals more around windows on the upper deck and a general rethinking of spaces. Indeed the 66 Manhattan features one of the best layout for owners looking for a twenty meter motor yacht with a four double cabins layout.  The 66 Manhattan also sees Sunseeker looking at other builders for inspiration, for example the midships full beam owners stateroom features a separate entrance, something Prestige has been doing in the last five years.  Other details are the flybridge fins which remind of an Azimut yacht design profile, used for over a decade.  The 66 Manhattan continues to show Sunseeker versatility in propulsion choices for its customers being available as the replacing 65 with both line shaft and Man 1200hp engine combination, or twin Volvo 900hp and IPS pod drives.
