Monday 24 March saw the launch of Sunseeker’s largest ever yacht at its facilities in Poole, Dorset. The ceremony was attended by the yacht’s owner Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan and Sunseeker International’s group president, Robert Braithwaite.
The company was also celebrating the success of the commissioning of a second 155 Yacht following a sale in Dubai.
Commissioned by the Jordan Family Trust, the bespoke elements of the 47m yacht allowed Jordan to stamp his marque on it and create something truly unique to him. With the 155 Yacht, Sunseeker has taken 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 into the interior design and layout but the actual superstructure of the yacht.
The yacht can accomodate up to 12 guests, while the forward lower deck area has berths for up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin. She has an ice blue hull while the interior features a design palette which highlights in grey, blue, green for an aquatic feel.
Robert Braithwaite, group president at Sunseeker International, commented: “We were incredibly proud to launch the 155 Yacht here in Poole with Mr Jordan. The 155 Yacht is a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to testing, the yacht was designed and built in Poole, so it really is British through and through and the fact the launch took place in Poole made it all the more special.”
