Before the end of the year, the Sunseeker 88 Yacht joins the British builder’s megayacht range. Whether you prefer stateside cruising or amid the islands, the yacht suits sunny-day pursuits. She does so with swift speeds and a host of luxury living options.
In Sunseeker tradition, the new 86’8” (26.38-meter) model emphasizes performance, pledging a top end of 28 knots under MTU power. She also features several alfresco areas for enjoying the wind in your hair, or a quiet anchorage once you arrive. For instance, the hardtop shading the flying bridge has an optional sliding central panel. Aft on this same deck, loose lounges and an optional infinity hot tub with sunpads are possible. (Tender stowage can be aft as another option, too.) Dine just forward, opposite a wetbar and grill.
Arguably one of the most popular areas on the Suneeker 88 Yacht, though, will be the swim platform/beach-club-like area. Usable day or night (recessed LEDs make traversing the stairs from the main aft deck safe), it has Sunseeker’s own X-Tend sunbeds/seating. They slide out electrically and can face the main aft deck as seats. Alternately, they lay flat as sunbeds. In either configuration, you can additionally request a sun umbrella for shade. Also regardless of configuration, the arrangement comes with a rain shower, plus dedicated lockers for two SeaBobs (and charging ports, too).
Inside the Sunseeker 88 Yacht, meanwhile, more options let you accentuate the 21-foot (6.47-meter) beam and enhance your experience. While the standard layout has four staterooms below decks, you can request a fifth. All fabrics, finishes, woods, and stones are yours to choose with Sunseeker’s design team. Consider opting for the sliding glass doors to starboard in the saloon, for teak side-deck access. Overall, the standard decor includes diagonal stainless steel accents on cabinets and doors and bronze details, too. More standard features, like a 55-inch TV in the saloon and a similar TV in the master suite, make entertainment easier. So does having the galley on the main deck. In fact, the standard configuration is an open concept, though you can request an enclosed galley for more privacy. Your four- or five-person crew gets their own mini galley in the crew mess.
In related news, Sunseeker has additional megayachts in build for debut this year. They include the Ocean Club Ninety, previously called the 87 Yacht.
