“SEA RAIDER V” received great critical acclaim as the Sunseeker flagship yacht at both the Cannes and Monaco yacht shows in September. Exemplifying the quality of Bespoke Interiors offered by the Sunseeker International Superyacht team, “SEA RAIDER V” exudes sumptuousness with her beautifully crafted finishes and furnishings.

Having worked working very closely with client and designer alike during the build, Richard describes the project:

“‘SEA RAIDER V’ was a joy to specify. Completely bespoke, there is a great balance between cutting edge design and tradition on board this particular 40 Metre. Hinting at both the elegant and the simple, the end result is stunning; the contrasting high gloss light and ultra-dark woods, luxurious leather seating, crisp lighting elements and the iconic tri-deck exterior all combine to create something that really is timeless.”

Accommodating up to 12 guests and 9 crew members, the 40 Metre Yacht is the largest Sunseeker in the current range ahead of the hotly anticipated launch of the 155 Yacht in a few month’s time. With true yachting credentials, the 40 Metre Yacht is designed and built to RINA unrestricted navigation classification and is capable of extended cruising to 1500NM.

Further industry praise was awarded to Sunseeker with a second nomination for the 37 Metre Yacht “G5” within the “Refitted / Rebuilt Yacht” category. Refitted at Fort Lauderdale Marine Center with Murray & Associates architects and Loguer Design, the 36.89m superyacht was built by Sunseeker International in 2007.

The World Superyacht Awards 2014 will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on Saturday 3rd May. For more information visit: http://worldsuperyachtawards.com
