Sunseeker Burns Down in Hope Town Harbour Abaco

A twenty meter Sunseeker flybridge yacht went ablaze while on anchor in the early afternoon of seventeen June in Hope Town harbor in Abaco.  Hope Town Volunteer and Fire rescue was on the scene to assist the yacht and its occupants and extinguish the flames.  No one was injured in the fire, but the twenty meter Sunseeker motor yacht was totalled and is now a wreck.
The Sunseeker yacht in this fire is a 2019 Manhattan 66.  Released in the fall of 2016 as replacement to the 65, the Manhattan 66 was produced till 2019 replaced by the similar looking 68 model in 2020.  Offering a four double cabins interior, with one crew cabin, the Manhattan 66 is powered by twin Volvo 900hp with IPS pod drive propulsion or Man 1200hp with line shafts.
