SUNSEEKER REVEALS TWO DEBUTS AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
Sunseeker International, the UK’s leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer, has announced its expansive line-up at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival where it will be represented by its European distributor, Sunseeker London Group, from Tuesday 6 to Sunday 11 September.
Two new Sunseeker models are set to feature in the nine-yacht line-up. The stunning 100 Yacht will have its global debut, and the dynamic Predator 65 will be available to view at its first European boat show. Alongside these exciting launches, Sunseeker will showcase the Manhattan 55, 65 Sport Yacht and 90 Ocean, all recently launched in 2021. A further four luxury models make up the line-up, including the Manhattan 68 which, for the very first time, will be on display in the heart of the French Riviera*.
Sean Robertson, Sales and Marketing Director at Sunseeker International, commented: “We are excited to be bringing another nine-yacht line-up to the inaugural event of the autumn boat show season. These yachts showcase the very best in design and innovation from our in-house teams and each model offers a unique proposition across the size and product ranges we have on offer. We look forward to meeting our existing and new clientele at the show.”
100 Yacht – Global Debut
The 100 Yacht revolutionises the Sunseeker Yacht range, earmarking the start of a new era in flybridge design and functionality for the British yard. With new entertainment features at the fore, the 100 Yacht offers great versatility with a truly global appeal. The sweeping flybridge, with complete walk-around access from bow to stern, is one of the exceptional entertainment areas that defines the 100 Yacht. The vast space on the flybridge is cleverly zoned to offer seamless entertainment. The foredeck has two separate seating arrangements with cinema screen capability, while the central flybridge has L-shaped seating, a fully equipped wet bar and space aft for free-standing furniture or a spa bath.
The 22-foot beam adds significant interior volume feeling much larger than a 100-footer, matched by interior features typically found in bespoke superyachts. The full-beam master suite situated on the main deck benefits from floor to ceiling windows port and starboard as well as an exceptional glass atrium door forward, leading to an owner’s private bow terrace.
Powered by MTU 12V 2000 M96X or MTU 16V 2000 M96L, the 100 Yacht reaches speeds of up to 29 knots and has a range of 1,300 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Reflecting its enormous strength and design capability, the yacht has been awarded CE Category A/Ocean status.

Predator 65 – European Debut
The all-new Predator 65 benefits from next-generation technology designed to make boating even more pleasurable. Installed with the latest Volvo Penta IPS System with their fully integrated pilot, engine data and navigation systems, the Predator 65 is an intuitive motor yacht capable of effortless manoeuvring and easy handling for boat owners.
A single piece, double curved, windshield and newly designed carbon fibre sunroof floods the main deck with an abundance of natural light, bringing the owner closer to the elements than previous models. The dramatic exterior is a striking blend of tinted glazing, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel, perfectly balancing traditional Sunseeker design concepts with cutting-edge material innovation to create a dynamic performance model.
An extra-wide tender garage allows a Williams 345 jet tender to be carried and launched via a new diagonal sliding hydraulic bathing platform. The additional garage space can store SeaBobs, inflatable paddleboards, diving equipment or racking. If specified as a Beach Club, the fully flush floor lends itself to free-standing furniture with a rain shower, lighting and speakers built into the opened door.
Altogether, the Predator 65 combines power and performance with generous cabins and a striking interior, offering a one-of-a-kind owner experience.
