Yachts are often big or fast, but in rare situations, they can be big and fast—like the Sunseeker 95 Predator.
Our boat test of the Sunseeker 95 Yacht. The idea of combining volume and performance is about as old as boatbuilding itself. But sometimes the execution just brings the mix to a precise level that will stop you in your tracks. Check out the 26-knot Sunseeker 95, and see how she came about. Get the details here.
Our Boat Test of the Sunseeker Predator 57.
The Sunseeker Predator 57 speaks in many ways to guest comfort, an owner’s pride, and a helmsman’s exhilaration. You’ll know it when you hear it.
Our first look at the Sunseeker Predator 57
Our Boat Test of the Sunseeker 86 Yacht.
This new 86 Yacht from Sunseeker may not be what you’re expecting from the traditionally sporty builder. But that’s certainly not a bad thing.
Our first look at the Sunseeker Manhattan 65.
The Manhattan 65 from Sunseeker is a bit of a rarity in that she’s as solidly built and seaworthy as she is sleek and glamorous. Get a better idea of what we mean here.

Power & Motoryacht's first impression of the Sunseeker Predator 68.
We test the space-age Manhattan 53 within sight of England’s stone-age coast.
This year’s Southampton boat show was breezy and damp, as it often is. If you wanted to guarantee unreliable weather for an outdoor event, you couldn’t do better than to choose the period of the fall equinox, when the predicted path of Atlantic low-pressure systems exactly
The border between a boat you’re comfortable handling yourself and one that requires a captain is a delicate one. The Manhattan 70 sits right on the cusp, filling a gap between the Manhattan 60 and the 86 Yacht. As the largest of the Manhattans, the 70 bridges the void by incorporating accommodation elements from the 86 while attempting to keep the at-sea agility of a boat that’s ten feet
It had been one of the most eagerly anticipated launches of recent years, the subject of more rumor and speculation than a Hollywood scandal. But when the London Boat Show opened in January, there she was. Finally, large as life and twice as opulent: Sunseeker's latest, the 37M Trideck Yacht, all 121 feet and 180 tons of her. Immediately the company's previous flagship, the 105-foot flying-bridge
The day began plainly enough. I met for coffee with Sunseeker's Hannah Braithwaite-Smith at the British builder's Pompano Beach outpost, Sunseeker USA. We started with the usual pleasantries, and soon transitioned into some generalities about the Sunseeker Predator 108, the big, Arneson drive-powered, performance-type motoryacht I'd soon be sea trialing in the nearby Atlantic. We talked about how
It was an unusual situation, but this is a highly unusual boat. We’d run the numbers and logged the speed, fuel, trim, and decibel readings and now were at the fun part of the test: handling. On an 82-foot, 60-ton yacht this isn’t always the fun part—I’ve tested boats this size that couldn’t out-turn the U.S.S. Nimitz—but this was different.
At somewhere between 25 and 30
It was blowing a steady 20 knots out of the northeast off of Florida’s dicey Hillsboro Inlet—there’s a sign posted at the drawbridge leading from the ICW to the ocean warning that local knowledge is advisable—as I wheeled the Sunseeker Predator 68 through her paces in the four-foot slop with the more-than-occasional six-footer thrown in. Accompanying me was Capt. Ralph Casler of
The 30-foot-plus center console sportfisherman market has numerous players: There's Contender, SeaVee, Seacraft, Regulator, Intrepid, Yellowfin, Fountain, Palmetto Custom, and Jefferson Yachts, to name a few. So why would Sunseeker, a builder noted for its silver screen-friendly performance boats (take a look at any recent Bond film) and finely detailed motoryachts to 105 feet, want to enter this
