SUNSEEKER 37M

Sunseeker 37M

On occasion of the last London boat show, Sunseeker introduced its latest model the Sunseeker 37 m. A great deal of attention to detail was afforded the motoryacht's interiors which combine classical and modern styles in order to attain almost timeless looks. The builders of the home-produced Sunseeker, developed over three bridges plus fly, have made good use of avant-garde technology and raw materials with the objective of offering a semi-custom yacht which could be completely personalised interiors wise, but that from a technical point of view would be based on consolidated study and research. The British built superyacht has gone through the rigours of the RINA Charter Class classification with flying colours without any limitations being placed to charter work. Sunseeker is the only British contribution to yachts of this size says their MD Robert Braithwaite who also states that thanks to a team of experts which has been built up over the years, they're able to design and produce luxury superyachts that fully satisfy MCA and RINA Charter Class requirements. The version we were able to study on the plans courteously provided by Sunseeker, show the Master stateroom being placed aft on the main deck which, thanks to the superstructure's beam, offers truly generous proportions. Staying on the main deck we find an equally large saloon with adjoining dining area, the galley and the open air dining area astern. The lower deck comprises four guest cabins a-midships of which two are doubles complete with beds placed at 45° to the keel and two are twins, naturally they're all fitted with en-suites and offer space in line with the ensemble. The forward area of the same deck is occupied by the crews' quarters comprising cabin and personnel living areas with fully independent access of course. The upper deck hosts a large wheelhouse forward covering the full beam of the superstructure whereas going towards the stern along more living areas and access gangways we reach the sundeck where a fully fledged beach can be enjoyed including a bar area, a couch and table, a hydro-massage unit, deckchairs and lots of space to relax in. The upper deck also offers an open air dining area protected by the protrusion of the sundeck above. Looks and technology are the driving force behind the design of the Sunseeker 37m making it very avant-garde both in terms of safety and design.
