Several months following the announcement of the largest-ever Sunseeker, the design studio Design Unlimited is revealing the Sunseeker 116 interior. While the megayacht is still two years away from launch, this peek should whet appetites for the customized possibilities to come.
The Sunseeker 161 represents the brand’s first metal megayacht, as well as the first one not built in the UK. Sunseeker is partnering with Icon Yachts, since the latter specializes in aluminum and steel construction, as well as large yachts. As Sean Robertson, Sunseeker’s sales director, explains, “The market demands at a certain size aluminum or steel.” Therefore, the new Sunseeker 161 will carry the branding “Sunseeker by Icon.”
While Icon Yachts is a new partner, Design Unlimited is not. The UK studio previously put its design touches on several Manhattan and Predator yachts, dating back more than a decade ago. Given its experience in the superyacht sector, of course, the Sunseeker 161 interior is in its proverbial wheelhouse.
Since this new model is available for customers to tailor to their liking, there’s no standard decor package. Rather, the illustrations here show how a variety of special finishes and combinations can come together. For instance, the Sunseeker 161 interior can be quite sophisticated, yet still barefoot casual. It’s particularly evident with the aft dining area on the main deck (top), taking advantage of the views—yet steps away from the alfresco pool hugging the edge of the deck. An even better example, though, is the bar that Design Unlimited suggests for the beach club (above).
With a 30-foot (9.2-meter) beam, the Sunseeker 161 interior does have a standard configuration, five staterooms for 10 people. Given the LOA, of course, six staterooms are optional.
More details to come as the megayacht makes progress under construction.
