#SunseekerSeptember Launches: Introducing the Sunseeker 86 Yacht

Making her UK premiere at the Southampton Boat Show this September, we take a closer look at the revolutionary new Sunseeker 86 Yacht ahead of her official launch next month.

Introducing a totally new concept to the current Sunseeker Yacht range, the 86 Yacht marks a brand-new, never seen before design from the Sunseeker International shipyard. Taking a completely new hull form, the 86 Yacht was born as the result of a client looking for new displacement speeds and extended range.

Accommodating these needs, the 86 Yacht hull features a flattened aft end which still runs like a true Sunseeker, but can offer the much sought after 1,500 NM range at 10 knots (twin MTU 10V 2000 M94s). Coupled with an 11,000-litre fuel capacity, the 86 Yacht goes above and beyond any competition.

It is not just efficiency that makes the 86 Yacht unique. Much has been emphasised on her special exterior and interior design. Taking the successes from previous models, including the Starboard bulwark balcony seen on the 28 Metre and 40 Metre Yacht, the 86 Yacht also introduces new touches and features to provide maximum comfort to the client.

Fold down seats have been added to the aft platform, which introduces an entry-level Beach Club – something you wouldn’t usually find on a yacht of this size. A large, sociable flybridge layout with extensive sunbathing areas and superyacht style wet-bar also provides an exceptional outdoor space, in addition to the foredeck seating area.

Guest accommodation is designed to be a home from home. The Saloon is large with full length glazing providing panoramic views and plentiful natural light, whilst the folding Balcony brings the outside in for those relaxing around the large seating area.

The standard layout is well suited to an Owner/Operator, with incorporated cooking and dining areas in the Saloon to ensuring a more sociable feel. The all-new Galley design features a breakfast bar element, which adds a refreshing take to a more informal dining option.

If an enclosed Galley is preferred however, this can be specified as an additional option, separating the area from guests during food preparation.

All new architecture appears on the Lower Deck, which features 4 very large en-suite cabins to accommodate 8 guests. The full beam midships Master Stateroom has been enhanced with useful modifications, including the bedside table inserts as seen below.

Other design changes can be noted in the Forward VIP Cabin, which benefits from its own stair access and private lobby, similar to that of the 28 Metre Yacht.

Offering the most capacious accommodation seen on a Sunseeker of this size before, the 86 Yacht truly epitomises luxury comfort onboard.

The 86 Yacht gains an additional edge over its competitors by offering a garage option to accommodate a Williams 385 tender. Rather than compromising valuable common area space in the Crew mess to allow for this, 86 Yacht design cleverly reduces the height above the Pullman berths, allowing for full standing room in the Crew cabin.
