Sunseeker Launch 131 Superyacht

2_2You know you’re onto something when four of your products have sold before they’ve even been made, especially when that ‘product’ is a hulking great 131-foot superyacht. Yes, the wizards at Sunseeker have done it again and launched the 131 Yacht.

Slotting into the existing extravagant ‘Yacht’ range below the vastly popular 155 and above the equally well-liked 28 metre, at around 40 metres, the 131 is also a near-identical size to the existing 130 Sport Yacht, although with even more technological advancement and customisable styling.

With the first 131 Yacht due to be launched from Sunseeker’s Poole shipyard in January 2016, Sean Robertson, Sales Director for Sunseeker International, said, “We’re delighted to unveil these incredible new images of the 131 Yacht and show everyone what a special vessel it is going to be.


It’s set to really build on the success of our proven 40 Metre Yacht platform, adding more technical innovation, more advanced features and contemporary layouts that can be tailored in every way to meet the needs of our most discerning customers.

The first four of these stunning yachts have already been sold to clients from the US, Turkey, UK and Hong Kong, underlining the strong demand and global appeal we’re seeing for this exciting new evolution in design. Investment in new product is at the heart of our business with this 131 Yacht being one of four new models in the 2015/16 model year.”


Arranged across three decks, the standard configuration for the 131 Yacht features ten guests in five cabins, although six cabins are possible with a bit of tweaking to the layout. The master stateroom, salon and upper salon boast feature full-height glass which enhances the already light-filled comfortable living space.


Meanwhile, Sunseeker has also taken the opportunity to lengthen the skylounge and bridge deck cockpit by two metres to improve deck space and incorporate a new bar and seating area with extras such as a fridge, ice maker and sink. Down below, the garage is large enough for a 6-metre tender and a couple of personal watercraft (jetski and the like).

The top speed is a perfectly respectable 23 knots, but at a cruising speed of 10, she will do 1,500 nautical miles and, like her 40-metre sister, all with the assistance of a classic deep V hull.

Sunseeker says that the build time for this tri-deck is around one year and, thanks to expanded and efficient yard facilities, up to five of them can be under construction simultaneously. If you have your eye on one (and the wherewithal to sign on the dotted line, we can’t imagine you’ll get much change from 20 million euros) your next available delivery slot is November 2016.
