Project: Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht

Sunseeker is proud to release details of all-new 65 Sport Yacht. Launching in the fall of 2020, the new yacht showcases a fresh design from Sunseeker’s next generation of models and underlines the brand’s commitment to bringing more exciting new products.  Sunseeker's Design and Technology Centre based in Poole, have been developing this new model for over a year. Embodying the latest design synonymous with Sunseeker, the 65 Sport Yacht will be fundamentally different from the current range in the segment due to its sculptured exterior design, innovative helm concept and stylish interior appointments. No single area has been left unchallenged in the search for perfection.  Her sleek exterior profile, with an almost invisible minimalist bridge deck, have been enhanced by the addition of rakish hull glazing, emphasizing her modern sporting prowess whilst increasing natural light into the lower deck spaces. The exterior is a cool blend of tinted glazing, teak, carbon fiber and polished stainless steel; perfectly balancing the traditional with hi-tech to enhance the emotional and performance traits of this dynamic new model.  Central to this yacht’s appeal, the modular sport bridge can be specified in two ways; a standard ‘Sky Lounge’ with comfortable chaise lounge and companion seating or a revolutionary and truly innovative ‘Sky Helm’. Featuring twin bolstered seats set very low either side of a central console, instrumentation is courtesy of a state-of-the-art glass bridge plotter complete with retro chrome dials. This design sets-off a very modern fully-carbon steering arm that can be raised to ease ingress into this racing-cockpit design or locked in a raised position for helming while standing. Cleverly, both helm seats can pivot aft for socializing while the windscreen can also tilt up and down depending on the driver’s preference and desire to be connected to the elements. Taken all together, the experience is one of pure adrenaline, akin to driving a high-performance convertible super-car and absolutely unique.  In line with this new model’s sporting credentials, access to the sport bridge is made from a lightweight feature staircase crafted from stainless steel, carbon and teak.  New ideas continue apace, not least within the vast modular cockpit which can be specified in a number of ways. Set to port is an over-sized J-shaped lounge seating running aft from the galley across the width of the cockpit matched to a large sun pad over the garage space. Alternatively, with centrally located lounge seating forward of the sun pad, the galley window can retract electrically to convert the area into a very sociable bar unit with matching stools. To starboard, the over-lapping entrance glazing slides effortlessly away allowing the cockpit to merge seamlessly with the generous and comfortable interior dominated by the superstructure’s expansive glazing. Here, the saloon has received numerous enhancements through both new designs to furniture and subtle but highly effective detailing of the sculpted upholstery and cabinetry incorporating polished stainless-steel highlights. The over-sized integrated skylight above the helm opens to more than two meters in width, flooding the living space forward with even more natural light. Accommodating up to six guests in a three-cabin layout, the spacious, full beam master stateroom includes a generous en-suite while the forward VIP cabin has been designed thoughtfully to give even more space. Each guest cabin is equipped with an en-suite and there is an additional day-head below. Optionally, an open-plan Owner’s Office linked to the master stateroom, an additional single-berth cabin or mini-galley can be specified below, delivering flexibility for any owner.  A clever new design sees the fully-appointed crew cabin situated forward of the garage and accessed via a dedicated raised hatch in the cockpit, all made possible by the IPS installation. This is important as an extra wide tender garage with fully-flush floor allows a 3.45 meter Jet RIB to be carried and launched via a new diagonal sliding hydraulic bathing platform, a first for any yacht in this sector. The additional garage space can be utilised for SeaBobs, inflatable paddleboards, diving equipment or racking.  Should an owner wish to carry the tender on the bathing platform, the vacated space can be specified as a dedicated and fully-featured ‘Beach Club’ with direct sea access via molded steps and more modular options for bar, fridge/ice maker units, BBQ and free-standing seating. In either scenario, the open garage door incorporates twin integrated rain-showers and speakers overhead; perfect for parties in or near the water. Molded steps featuring curved Flexiteek soles sweep up either side creating a fully symmetrical stern, enhancing her dynamic lines and inherent beauty.  The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht cuts an equally important performance figure water with speeds of up to 38 knots courtesy of the Volvo 900hp or optional 1000hp engines with IPS pod drives propulsion.
