MTU engines feature as an option on all new Sunseeker models 68ft and above along with exclusively powering all of the Sunseeker superyacht range.
With the new Series 2000 M96 range of engines to offer, including key technologies designed and developed in house, MTU are considered by many to be the world’s premier marine engine manufacturer.
In the spirit of MTU’s long term partnering with Sunseeker, MTU engines are provided with “Premium Yacht Service”, which combines all the elements of MTU’s best-in-class ValueCare Service products, supported by the MTU Worldwide Distributor Network, making them a preferred choice for many of our clients.
The MTU team will be on hand all weekend to discuss the benefits of their engines in your preferred Sunseeker model and answer any questions you may have on the new Series 2000 M96 engines and Premium Yacht Service.

Raymarine navigation equipment is an option on all Sunseeker models up to 100ft. The Raymarine team will be on hand all weekend to answer all of your navigation questions, whether you are specifying your new boat or looking to upgrade equipment on your current boat. In addition the team will have a large display of products, including the three of the best below:
SMART LOOK, SMART DISPLAYS: GS-SERIES
The gS-Series is a smart, self-contained multifunction navigation display that offers exceptional functionality whilst looking great on your helm. Create a single display installation or expand the gS-Series into a multi-station system, the choice is yours. gS-Series uses Raymarine’s LightHouse II interface – offering quick and easy access to all of your favourite data functions plus a few new ones you might not have thought of.
LightHouse is Raymarine’s expanding user interface with downloadable updates every 3 months – make sure you’re up to date with the latest features available from http://www.raymarine.com/software.
SEE IN THE DARK! THERMAL CAMERAS
Running in to a new port, or even your favourite anchorage, after dark can be a worry; but thermal cameras can give you the confidence to navigate safely in total darkness and, conversely, against blinding light. Fully controlled (pan-tilt-zoom) via a Raymarine MFD, thermal cameras clearly show you hazards including other vessels, navigation buoys, structures and debris. Excellent slew-to-cue capability locks the thermal camera on a selected object for tracking, critical for Man Over Board or security situations. Choose from fixed-mount thermal imagers to pan-tilt-zoom models, or the newest multi-payload series for the ultimate in performance and capability.
BENEATH THE WAVES WITH VISIONALITY: CHIRP SONAR WITH DOWNVISON
Add an award-winning Raymarine CHIRP DownVision Sonar module to your nav system to get underwater vision so close to reality you’ll see why well call it Visionality. Discover new scuba and snorkeling spots, check for obstructions before you drop anchor or search out those prize fish. Take a look at these amazing underwater images captured by Raymarine customers using their new DownVision – what will you see with yours?

We are delighted to be partnering with the award winning Chase Distillery as the drinks provider for the weekend. Surprisingly, for a spirit more commonly associated with countries such as Poland or Russia, Herefordshire’s Chase Vodka triumphed at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
After founding the successful crisp firm Tyrrells, William Chase decided in 2004 to make another gourmet product on his potato farm. He aimed once again for the top end of the market. Chase Distillery uses its own high starch potatoes instead of wheat or rye grains, while the vodka’s distinct characteristics are achieved through the use of a bespoke still and a handcrafted copper batch pot.
The distillery itself truly stands out from the competition, with the entire production process taking place on the one farm, from the home-grown potatoes and cider apples to producing the spirits and hand bottling them.
Launched in 2008, Chase Vodka is sold in the UK by the likes of Claridges and Fortnum & Mason, as well as through Waitrose and English Heritage.

This year Sunseeker is proud to be partnering with the Sunseeker Poole local Porsche dealership, Porsche Bournemouth. With members of their team on hand to talk cars across the weekend, they will also be bringing along a selection of their finest vehicles – a Martini Racing Edition 911 (only one of 80 produced), a 911 Carrera 4S, Boxter GTS, a Macan, a Panamera and an all-new Cayenne.

Lime Wood, a boutique country house, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London! It is laid-back luxury at its best – the perfect secluded hideaway escape.

Angela and Luke, together with their team, create locally sourced English dishes with a respectful nod to the seasons and to Italian culinary ideologies. This collaboration is reflected in their fresh, confident approach ensuring that this is “fun dining, not fine dining”.
Just for the month of March, Hartnett Holder & Co are inviting to you join them for a midweek dinner to try any 3 courses on the à la carte menu for the fixed price of just £45, including coffee!
