Following the recent delivery of the first Sunseeker 101 Sport Yacht, “BLACK LEGEND”, a full day of sea trials on board the second 101 Sport Yacht took place last week, ahead of her imminent delivery with Sunseeker France.
With staff from suppliers at RINA, MTU, Sleipner and Simrad on board, the 29.80m superyacht made the voyage from Poole to the north side of the Isle of Wight (Yarmouth) before turning back for the Sunseeker International shipyard.
Speed trials against the tide were conducted on the return to the South Coast, with the agreed average top speed reaching 31.5 knots on her twin MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines (and several knots more going with the tide) – an impressive result!
Sunseeker International’s Will Eveleigh, who conducted the sea trial, commented; “She handles like a little sports boat and it is amazing what she can do; she is a lot of fun! This has been a very successful sea trial.”
With reports of significant swell during the trial, the 101 Sport Yacht handled impeccably, slicing through the waves at high speeds and remaining beautifully stable and comfortable in the saloon throughout.
Aesthetically very different from the first example of the Sunseeker model, which is famed for its distinctive skull motif and her black and red styling, the second white-hulled 101 Sport Yacht features a more classic and traditional Black American Walnut interior, with a customised lower deck office in lieu of the standard Port 4th guest cabin.
Sold by James Wood of Sunseeker La Napoule, the new Sunseeker 101 Sport Yacht will depart from Southampton for Gibraltar, before voyaging to Sotogrande and onwards to her home berth in Frejus, South of France.
