Christopher Head, Group Sales Director of Sunseeker London, described the Cannes Boat Show as “the best ever display of Sunseeker boats at one boat show”. The remarks made by Christopher come on the day that the Mediterranean’s most coveted boat show opens the doors of the Palais de Festival, Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto for 6 days.
The Sunseeker stand, located in the Vieux Port just adjacent to the Capitanerie, covers one of the largest areas at the show and as a result is packed with new releases, current models and exceptional brokerage vessels for sale.
At the top of the Sunseeker pecking order, is the 40 Metre Yacht “SEA RAIDER IV”, kindly lent for display by her owner. The 40.05m superyacht, which is largest in the Sunseeker range ahead of the 2014 launch of the 155 Yacht, offers accommodation for 12 guests and up to 9 crew over 3 separate decks.
Rather appropriately in a thoughtful juxtaposition of Sunseeker models, the smallest of the range – the Portofino 40 – lies side-by-side with her 40 metre sister. The popular sports cruiser that enjoyed her Mediterranean launch at the 2013 Cannes Boat Show continues to draw clients looking for a weekend / performance cruiser with good looks. The Portofino 40 on display in Cannes, named “BESPOKE”, is currently for sale with Sunseeker Brokerage, asking £329,500 ex VAT.
Another brokerage vessel that is quite literally turning heads, is the stunningly fierce Predator 84 “BLACK LEGEND”. The highest spec’d Predator 84 ever built, she will shortly be available with Sunseeker London. With over £1,000,000 of extras and stunning interior detailing and customisation, “BLACK LEGEND” has created quite a stir at the show so far. Catch her at dusk when her transom literally comes alight with her unique skull inspired theme.
Always the home of new releases, Cannes plays host to the Med Premiere of Sunseeker’s latest flybridge addition, the Manhattan 55. Introducing a new saloon layout with increased seating accompanying the helm area, as well as a larger flybridge with an improved secondary helm and heightened bimini. With her UK premiere at Southampton Boat Show this coming Friday (13th) and additional Med premiere at the Barcelona Boat Show from the 24th September, Cannes represents one of the 3 chances to see the Manhattan 55 in the flesh this year.
Additional Sunseeker motor yachts on show at Cannes are the San Remo, Predator 60, Manhattan 63, Manhattan 73, Predator 68, Predator 80, 28 Metre Yacht.
Be sure to visit Sunseeker during the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes between the 10th and 15th September to have a chance to view some of the fantastic models on display! Keep an eye on Twitter for the latest #SunseekerSeptember boat show news, and follow the Sunseeker Blog Book.
