Sunseeker is reporting multiple orders for its new 100 Yacht which has launched into Poole Harbour for the first time.

The highly anticipated craft is predicted to revolutionise the Sunseeker Yacht range, marking the start of a new era in flybridge design and functionality.

She will now undergo sea trials before her delivery to the Mediterranean this summer.

Andrea Frabetti, Chief Executive Officer, Sunseeker International, pictured left, said: “We are incredibly proud to unveil the 100 Yacht here in Poole with the owner in attendance to see, for the first time, this spectacular new model.

“Our project team has worked incredibly hard to present the first build and prepare the vessel for initial sea trials and testing.

“The second hull is following in close succession and our teams are now busy building multiple 100 Yacht orders for delivery in 2022 and beyond: it’s been a remarkable success.

“The order book is a reflection of our brand strength, the in-house creativity and the passion of all involved to deliver a spectacular new model.

“This is the only yacht offering seamless access between flybridge, foredeck and owners’ private terrace on the sea.”

Sunseeker says the sweeping flybridge, with complete walk-around access from bow to stern, is one of the exceptional entertainment areas that defines the 100 Yacht.

The foredeck has two separate seating arrangements with cinema screen capability, while the central flybridge has L-shaped seating, a fully equipped wet bar and space aft for free-standing furniture or a spa bath.

Sunseeker says the 22-foot beam adds significant interior volume feeling much larger than a 100-footer, matched by interior features typically found in bespoke superyachts.

The full-beam master suite on the main deck has floor to ceiling windows port and starboard as well as a glass atrium door forward, leading to an owner’s private bow terrace.

The 100 Yacht reaches speeds of up to 29 knots and has a range of 1,300 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.

Reflecting its strength and design capability, the yacht has been awarded CE Category A/Ocean status.

From its manufacturing base in Poole, Sunseeker employs about 1,700 people and produces around 150 boats every year ranging from 38-161 feet with 95 per cent being for export.
