15th September, Midday - Stand C080

Sunseeker International is delighted to announce that two time world hurdles champion Colin Jackson CBE, sports commentator Suzi Perry and X Factor winner Ben Haenow, will be the brand’s special guests at this year’s Southampton Boat Show on Friday 15th September at 12 noon.

Colin, who is best known for his success and world records in the 110m and 60m hurdles, and more recently his coverage of the athletics across the BBC will be opening the stand with Sunseeker founder, Robert Braithwaite CBE DL and CEO Phil Popham.

Colin will also introduce Sunseeker’s new long-term partnership with Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE), a charity dedicated to protecting the oceans for future generations to enjoy. The partnership with Sunseeker will increase awareness of ocean conservation by encouraging people to think about their impact on the oceans and how they can help save our most valuable resource.

Colin commented: “I am really delighted to be joining Sunseeker to celebrate the opening of the stand at the Southampton Boat Show; and particularly introducing the BLUE partnership, which I am very excited about as it is more crucial than ever to preserve and protect our oceans.”

Suzi Perry will also be at the opening and is a long-time friend to Sunseeker. Suzi is renowned for becoming the first permanent female presenter of Formula One racing on British TV.

Colin and Suzi will be joined by X Factor 2014 winner, Ben Haenow who will be singing for everyone’s enjoyment. His debut single reached number one in the UK singles chart becoming the 2014 Christmas number one. Ben has since released his debut studio album and will be going on tour this December.

The show will see Sunseeker launch two world premieres - the 76 Yacht and the Predator 57 MKII.

The exciting, all-new 76 Yacht delivers unprecedented levels of luxury, sociability and entertaining space and, with 18 yachts pre-sold, is already in high demand. Clever design maximises social and entertaining spaces, whilst the innovative use of glass enhances natural light, making this a bright and airy boat in which to relax and unwind with family and friends.

The Predator 57 MK II is an evolution of the incredibly popular Predator 57 which has been the segment leader since its introduction in January 2015, echoing all its stand out features with even more elegance and style.

These breathtaking new yachts are set to steal the show in Southampton. They will be joined by five other boats including the innovative Predator 68, Manhattan 66 and 95 Yacht.
