Announced earlier this year at Dusseldorf Boat Show and set to be launched in 2020, the last work of Sunseeker’s team at its Design and Technology Centre based in Poole, Dorset, will take the name 87 Yacht and will be built in a new production facility at its main shipyard.
Sunseeker’s 87 Yacht will feature several innovative design solutions, following the announcement of CEO Andrea Frabetti regarding a major new product development plan.
The Beach Club will measure over 6m x 4m, becoming a great spot to socialize close to the water, perhaps utilizing the built-in BBQ. The Bezenzoni ‘Ladder Gangway’ allows guests to access the watersports on offer, while the innovative ‘X-TEND’ sunbeds will allow for a multiplicity of arrangements in what is likely to be the main entertainment space on board.
Sunseeker CEO, Andrea Frabetti, commented: “The ‘X-TEND’ sunbed system is yet another example of the extraordinary talent we hold in-house and is set to become a defining feature across many of our future models. Whilst Sunseeker is well known for its craftsmanship and leading the way in terms of engineering and design, this is Sunseeker’s innovation at its best and continues to set us apart from our competition.”
The sunbeds can be operated electrically to either raise upwards to face the covered cockpit seating area or alternatively, they can be lowered to face aft at Beach Club level.
The door of the garage has been set on an angle that allows a storage capacity on-board of 56 cubic feet of space immediately behind the sunbeds plus two lockers offering 90 cubic feet of adaptable racked or open space. The adjoining deck area with a hydraulic platform provides the space to house and launch a Jet Ski, a 15’ Williams 460 SportJet and two SeaBobs, housed in dedicated self-draining lockers.
On the flybridge, there is the option of an infinity spa pool, a sideboard with second integrated BBQ, a wet bar with stainless steel sink, drawer fridges, ice maker and glass bar top. The teak capped handrails with glazing below allow for uninterrupted panoramic views. The carbon-fiber hardtop with full-width retractable canopy provides the shade for a seating and dining area
Within the cockpit, owners can choose between fixed or freestanding furniture, an integrated wet bar with fridge, ice maker and stainless sink, an integrated full height electrically operated privacy blind and matching teak-capped handrails.
The foredeck houses 3 separate seating groups plus sunbather with electrically adjustable backrests, protected by a sail canopy option. This area will also have a cinema option with a laser projector and a 140-inch screen.
The interior design on the main deck combines traditional elegance with contemporary updates. The saloon measures 8.8m in length by 5.6m. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the living accommodation with natural daylight complemented by sliding doors to port if required. A dedicated dining area for eight can be positioned to port or starboard whilst a contemporary apartment-style galley forward, with partition screens if required, offers space and direct side deck access for crew.
The lower helm, with additional dedicated side deck access, can be specified with a 3.7m skylight.
Below deck, a wooden feature wall leads owners into the full-beam master stateroom, which offers panoramic views via its 2.5m windows. A feature to the stateroom is ‘his & hers’ pivot-hinge wardrobes and drawer units adjoining feature lobby shelving sitting behind paneled full-height mirrors. The en suite incorporates a floating vanity unit with twin porcelain sinks, backlit framed mirrors, more drawer storage, and a freestanding Axor shower.
The forward VIP cabin features dedicated access and two twin aft cabins which can be converted into doubles.
An optional fifth cabin is possible for the charter market instead of the standard master stateroom whilst for certain markets, a lower galley with direct crew cabin access is also feasible. The crew cabin, with capacity for four or five, benefits from a kitchenette, crew mess, en suite and provision of 2 appliances.
