The Portofino 40 was showcased in particular style this year, with two beautiful models on display. One championed an amazing Union Jack hull wrap from Wild Group International in celebration of Sunseeker International’s involvement in the GREATBritain campaign, whilst a grey-hulled Portofino 40 took pride of place at the centre of the show alongside a Fairline Targa 38 and Princess V39.

The essence behind the British Motor Yacht Show is that of a ‘boutique’ boat show, arranged and organised by Sales Directors from the Sunseeker London Group, Princess Motor Yacht Sales and Essex Boatyards. Sunseeker London’s Christopher Head has pioneered this show with the help of his team since the show’s inception and was impressed to see the show develop from last year.

Sunseeker clients enjoyed the opportunity to look over a selection of yachts in their natural habitat, complete with British sunshine!

Commenting on the weekend’s success, Christopher said; “The British Motor Yacht Show proved a success here at the home of Sunseeker Southampton, and we enjoyed exhibiting our yachts in the British sunshine. BMYS has really developed since last year and it is pleasing to see other luxury brands including Aston Martin, Porsche, Range Rover and McLaren becoming involved.”
