Having already undergone rigorous shore based testing at the Sunseeker shipyard facility in Poole, the 155 Yacht is now preparing to undergo its sea trials, being put into the water in early February in time for delivery to her owner, Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan, in early spring.
With the 155 Yacht, Sunseeker takes the concept of series building with personal customisation one step further with a modular build methodology which enables the owners to have direct input not only in the interior design and layout but also the actual superstructure of the yacht. The 155 Yacht has accommodation for up to 12 guests, while the forward lower deck area can accommodate up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin.
The 155 Yacht is the biggest project ever undertaken by Sunseeker International and is the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge hull from the company. The yacht will have a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles.
Stewart McIntyre, managing director at Sunseeker International, comments: “This is an extremely exciting time for Sunseeker as we inch ever closer to the completion of the 155 Yacht. This is the biggest project we have ever undertaken and since the announcement of its build it has been the talk of the industry. We are incredibly proud of what we have created and look forward to showcasing it to the world.”
