UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 26, 2019: The Sunseeker 133 Yacht is part of the newly formed Sunseeker Superyacht Division. Starting with the Sunseeker 101 and ending with the 161 Yacht, the range will help grow customers into sizes previously unavailable from the builder. Speaking of the builder, Sunseeker is partnering with fellow British shipyard Pendennis to construct the 133 Yacht. The reason: Pendennis has the experience and skilled craftspeople.

She features the first vertical bow on a Sunseeker model, as well as a flexible layout with a super-private spa tub. The 133 Yacht also addresses customers’ increasing tendency to spend more time onboard. All the while, the 133 Yacht remains faithful to Sunseeker’s tendency to provide fast speeds.
The 131’6” (40.1-meter) megayacht is essentially the same length as a sistership, the 131 Yacht. However, she’s 27 percent more voluminous, with a 448 gross tonnage, carrying a wider beam as well. Specifically, the beam for the 133 Yacht is 31 feet (meters), versus 26’5” (8.09 meters) for the 131. For an even better comparison, though, the 155 Yacht has only 15 percent more volume.
High style will flow throughout the megayacht. Design Unlimited, a long-time Sunseeker partner, will work with you to tailor the interior. From the five staterooms for a party of 12 to the saloon and sky lounge, plentiful choices await. For example, the standard layout incorporates a bar aft in the saloon. It can service the aft deck easily, too, due to bi-fold doors. An electrically lowering glass panel additionally can make it part of the aft deck for the afternoon.
You’ll also like the beach club and tender stowage choices. A classic stern garage can hold PWCs and plenty of other toys. But, it means foregoing the beach club. With the beach club, though, you still get a Williams 460 Sportjet tender. It sits in the foredeck hot tub (drained, of course) when the 133 Yacht is underway. Either way, you can also tow a Sunseeker Hawk 38, for pure adrenaline-inducing fun.
Since Sunseeker has earned a reputation for swift yachts, the 133 Yacht follows suit. The builder says twin 16V MTUs should allow a top end of 24 knots. Best range should be 3,500 nautical miles in the low- to mid-teens speeds. Interestingly, you can opt for the 12V MTU Hybrid propulsion system, too. Therefore, you’ll benefit from silent-running, zero-emissions mode. Regardless of choice, and further to emissions, a Selective Catalytic Reduction system, which reduces nitrous-oxide discharges, will be aboard.
Expect hull number one of the 133 Yacht to launch in 2021. That’s the same year as another mega model in the lineup, the Sunseeker 161 Yacht, makes her debut.
