With hull numbers one through three in discussions with clients, the Sunseeker 161 Yacht is doing just what Sunseeker wanted. It is confirming that the British builder should expand into large superyacht sizes, while remaining true to its semi-custom nature. Furthermore, it is confirming that the builder can bring something different to the proverbial table.
Announced in September 2018 as Sunseeker’s biggest yacht and its first metal yacht, the 161 Yacht is taking shape at Icon Yachts in The Netherlands, due to that shipyard having expertise in aluminum and steel. In addition, Icon Yachts is handling these aspects because Sunseeker’s facilities in the UK are essentially at capacity.
A lot of information is already out about the new megayacht model. However, this video reveals some aspects for the first time. For instance, a nice surprise lays in store specific to the beach club. Unlike essentially every other beach club, the one aboard the 161 Yacht is usable 24/7. In other words, none of the hatches needs to be down for guests to enjoy it. Featuring a bar, it’s accessible directly from the main aft deck’s lounging area, forward of the pool. Of course, once the megayacht is at anchor, and the hatches fold down, crew can set up loose lounges to take advantage of the extra usable space, and ambience.
While this video is just a brief glimpse of what customers can expect as standard highlights, keep in mind that Sunseeker is putting its Bespoke service at your disposal. The in-house design team can, for example, create accommodations for 10 guests in five staterooms. Alternately, it can create staterooms for a party of 12. Furthermore, the woods, stones, and other materials making the saloons, dining areas, and more welcoming are up to you to select.
With hull number one set for delivery in September 2022, you have plenty of time to make up your mind.
