With another record year just completed, the Sunseeker Southampton team are looking forward to continued success, as they head into what has already begun as an extremely busy start to 2018.
James Lumley, Sales Manager of Sunseeker Southampton gave us a rundown of the highlight sales from last year, which included the delivery of 3 new construction yachts – the Sunseeker Manhattan 52 “M/Y Betsea”, Sunseeker 86 Yacht “M/Y Hard 8” and Sunseeker 95 Yacht “M/Y Victoria Elizabeth VI.
Notable brokerage completions included the Sunseeker 75 Yacht “M/Y Pura Vida IV”, Sunseeker 75 Yacht “M/Y Hard 8”, Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht “M/Y Spectre” and a number of 38-65ft vessels from a host of popular marques – Fairline, Rodman, Pearl, Prestige & Sunseeker.
With less than a month of the 2018 season underway, the Southampton team have already completed 5 pre-owned yacht sales, with another to follow next week. The market trend continues to see used prices steadily increasing and well-presented yachts are often changing hands before reaching the open market.
The recent global launch of the acclaimed Sunseeker Predator 50, along with the continued success of the award-winning Sunseeker Manhattan 52, has ensured that several new-build Sunseeker models will be making their way to UK South Coast marinas in 2018.
Along with many of the Sunseeker London Group offices, the Southampton team has significantly expanded over the past 12 months, strengthening the sales, administration and engineering side to their operation. This programme of continued investment will ensure that clients enjoy the perfect (and unique) Sunseeker ownership experience.
