The production capacity of British Sunseeker not allow you to build a yacht longer than 40 meters. The management of the shipyard complained that he was losing long-standing clients who have grown to the size of the boat more. And here is the solution found: Sunseeker agreed with Icon Yachts on the construction on its site nearly 49-meter yacht. And not from the traditional English shipyard fiberglass and aluminum.
Already in the spring of 2021, the company are going to present the first case of triple-Decker of 48.7-meter mega-yacht called Sunseeker By Icon. By the summer of that year, the yacht will be fully prepared.
The exterior design will be based on a modernized way Sunseeker 131. As for the interior design, the company plans to develop three basic options under which owners will be able to choose the finishing materials and layout.
The standard configuration combines the Sunseeker and the Icon will include five cabins for ten guests. However, at the request of the owner of the number of cabins will be increased to six. Aft of the main deck, install pool, and the edges of the lower deck will make the flip to turn it into a spacious beach area right on the water.
According to the Director of sales and marketing Sunseeker , Sean Robertson (Sean Robertson), the current joint project with Icon — this is only the beginning of long term cooperation.
“We are two brands that completely understand each other,” said Robertson.
Earlier the Sunseeker has attempted to increase the length of their yachts to 47.2 metres. But such a project required the realization of aluminum or steel, and these materials Builder is not working. Possible Icon Yachts allow you to build a metal housing up to 150 meters. Additional orders that will appear at the boatyard at the expense of cooperation with Sunseeker, will not be a problem: in the summer of 2018 Icon Yachts has announced the construction of a floating dock to increase the productivity of the shipyard almost 100%.
