Sunseeker USA to display six stunning yachts at Palm Beach International Boat Show, 23rd - 29th March 2017
Thursday, 23 March 2017
At this year’s Palm Beach International Boat Show, Sunseeker USA Sales Co Inc. and Rick Obey Associates are proud to be showcasing the exceptional 95 Yacht which is making her USA debut. Also on show for the first time in the USA is the new 68 Sport Yacht MKII alongside five more stunning yachts from Sunseeker the range.
The 32nd Palm Beach International Boat Show, is one of the top five boat shows in the United States of America and features more than $1.2 billion worth of boats, yachts and accessories from the world’s leading marine manufacturers.
The 95 Yacht’s stunning lines and unique layout exemplifies the latest in Sunseeker’s cutting-edge design and innovative build processes. With all the spacious elegance of its highly successful sister, the 28 Metre Yacht, it combines a superyacht feel with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category.
A standout feature is its unique main deck layout with a special master cabin triplex configuration for even greater flexibility and space from a class above. With the luxurious master stateroom berth on the main deck, a forward staircase leads to a mid-level dressing area and sumptuous en-suite.
The raised pilot house offers greater flexibility contributing to the more expansive main deck layout which is truly remarkable for this size of yacht. Above deck, the spacious flybridge is well equipped with a second helm, bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests to be entertained in style.
Completing the Sunseeker line-up for the show is the powerful Predator 68 and Predator 57, the 75 Yacht and the lavish Manhattan 65.
Sean Robertson, President at Sunseeker USA, said: "Following the success of the Miami Boat Show in February, we are very much looking forward to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. It will be the US debut of the 95 Yacht and we are really looking forward to introducing this stunning yacht to our visitors at the show. The new 95 Yacht’s design has evolved to perfectly emulate the new design direction of our larger models, yet it still remains unmistakeably a Sunseeker. Over 30% of our business is from the Americas, it is therefore really important that we continue to exhibit at the US shows and invest into developing our exceptional yacht range available for our US customers.”
