Stewart McIntyre, managing director at Sunseeker International, commented: “This is an extremely exciting time for Sunseeker as we inch ever closer to the completion of the 155 Yacht. This is the biggest project we have ever undertaken and since the announcement of its build it has been the talk of the industry. We are incredibly proud of what we have created and look forward to showcasing it to the world.”
The 155 Yacht is the biggest project ever undertaken by Sunseeker International and is the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge hull from the company. The yacht's design and build process allowed its owners a virtually free-hand when designing the yacht to their own specification. With the 155 Yacht, Sunseeker takes the concept of series building with personal customisation one step further with a modular build methodology which enables the owners to have direct input not only to the interior design and layout but the actual superstructure of the yacht. The 155 Yacht itself boasts accommodation for up to 12 guests, while the forward lower deck area can accommodate up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin.
Sunseeker say that it is the yacht's contemporary interior and exterior design which truly makes the 155 design stand out from the crowd. Hull number one will have a completely painted exterior, featuring a stunning ice blue hull, while the interior will feature an exclusive design palette which highlights grey, blue, green and an overall 'chic aqua' feel.
Accommodation includes two VIP cabins on the main deck, which features ceiling to floor glass windows. The first 155 Yacht will also include a formal dining area with side patio doors, balconies for uninterrupted sea views whilst dining and a fully equipped commercial galley. Complementing the interior the yacht also features an expanse of entertainment space; the upper deck alone features a huge sky lounge which can be dedicated to private entertainment.
