Project: Sunseeker Ocean 460

The Sunseeker Ocean 460 is a tri-deck yacht project with a round-bilge semi-displacement hull. Whilst part of the Ocean range of models, it is also a superyacht, the first Sunseeker to feature a vertical bow and with a beam of over nine meters she has 25% more interior volume than her sister ship the 131 Yacht, thus paving the way for a completely new design philosophy for the next generation of superyachts coming from Poole. Rather than using the boat’s length within its model name, the Ocean 460 references its gross tonnage figure, the measurement of a yachts interior volume. While this is a new naming convention for Sunseeker, it truly captures why this new model is so unique. It reminds the owner that they are gaining a significant increase in interior volume in a yacht measuring 42 metres, compared with a conventional yacht layout of a similar size. The Ocean 460 is available with MAN 2000hp engines providing a maximum speed of 21kts and a range of 3,200nm at a cruising speed of circa 12kts. Optional hybrid options will also be available offering a myriad of benefits from extending the range, a period of silent running or delivering the hotel load whilst at anchor. Sunseeker has designed the Ocean 460 with discerning clientele in mind, understanding that customers are spending more time on board, both underway and at anchor, with increased comfort and quality of life of supreme importance. The new Ocean 460 will benefit from reduced noise, more usable space and the very latest technologies. She also boasts some of Sunseeker’s most sophisticated interiors to date with numerous options for owners to fully customise their yacht. The interiors are a close collaboration between Design Unlimited and Sunseeker’s in-house interior design team and are understandably sumptuous. The first impression is one of light, space and detail paired with premium technology and an infinite choice of d├ęcor and lighting to suit the mood, increased with subtle lighting integration. The styling is an evolution that is reassuringly Sunseeker, with the yacht exuding sophistication with decadent touches, seamless room transitions, and the very finest woods, leathers and fabrics to create a bespoke personality for each individual owner.
