First images of the innovative Sunseeker 131 superyacht
Superyacht fans can enjoy the first images of the sleek Sunseeker 131 superyacht, which has been under construction at the Poole-based Sunseeker shipyard and is now out on the water for the first time (image below). Striking cutaway bulwarks give the yacht a dramatically different look, and the innovative design aims to flood the interiors with light.
The yacht will be undergoing extensive testing and sea trials before the first owners take delivery. Based on the classic Sunseeker deep-V hull, this large tri-deck yacht is built to provide luxury, comfort and performance.
This is the first hull of four already sold ahead of the Sunseeker 131’s 2016 official launch. These boats are at varying stage of builds, with an average build time of one year from initial hull moulding to delivery.
The Sunseeker 131 boasts a bold exterior design and trademark super-luxury interiors. Sunseeker has said that the tri-deck 131 will have a top speed of 23 knots and an optimum cruising speed of 12 knots.
Images of interior design are impressive, and for lucky owners, the bespoke service meaning that fabrics, furniture and layout of each deck can be customised. On this particular model, the owner has reportedly opted for a light colour scheme with plenty of mirrored surfaces.
