A total of 11 Sunseeker motor yachts are on display in Southampton, from the Portofino 40 through to the largest vessel at the boat show, the 28 Metre Yacht “AUTUMN”, available to charter through Sunseeker Charters. Interest across the range has been very high, with an impressive number of deals agreed on the stand for the Sunseeker London Group.

The Sunseeker stand has given the Sunseeker London Group an excellent opportunity to work with a number of luxury brand partners, including a collaboration with The White Company for ‘hotel chic’ interiors onboard the Manhattan 55, a gorgeous display of Bloom Gin and VIP receptions for property specialists, Savills UK.
