Fifteen boats descended upon Poole – the home of Sunseeker to celebrate all things Blighty for the inaugural Sunseeker Owners UK Cruise. With boats coming in from all locations throughout the UK, we gathered together to celebrate in true Sunseeker style.
The cruise kicked off with a delicious gourmet BBQ by Molecular Magic and delicious cocktails by the one and only Chase Distillery in one of the famous Sunseeker Shipyards. Guests partied the night away to the sounds of Mica on the saxophone before upping the tempo to the Forever Steel Band. As well as the sweet sounds of reggae reggae music, guests were treated to thrill rides in one of two eye wateringly fast Tesla models, testing them to their limits in insane mode.
After setting off to a flying start, our guests woke up to some rather challenging sea conditions, making the cruise to Beaulieu a rather difficult prospect. With the weather against us, the Sunseeker team worked together to lay on a fantastic lunch in ones of Poole’s local eateries, tasting Dorset’s finest delicacies before enjoying an afternoon of relaxation with a glass or two of Chase Distilleries finest Rose or famous GB&T.
To end the final night in true Sunseeker fashion, we invited our guests to join us for a three course black tie banquet in the National Motor Musuem in Beaulieu. Seated amongst the likes of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Aryton Senna’s Racing Car, Porsche 997 and Rolls Royce Whisper made food for thought as our guests dinned in style for a true Blighty themed evening. Finishing the evening with a bang were the sweet sounds of Acapella from’Ella & The Pocket Belles’ singing their very own Sunseeker inspired song.
Sales Director of the UK offices, Spencer Brown comments “Events like this are an amazing way to get our family of Sunseeker owners together to say thank you to them for their business. New friends are made, experiences shared and our partners can promote their products in a formal and friendly manner. We were able to dress the shipyard for our first evening venue and then use the fantastic Beaulieu Motor Musuem to host a banquet on the second evening – aligning Sunseeker’s prestige and history with some of the best cars in the world. The weather might have been poor but the UK boating spirit shone through.”
We were delighted to be joined by our fantastic brand partners who continuously complement our shows and events. A big thank you to Nautibuoy Marine, Simrad, Peters & May, Seabob, Swarovski Optic, Stackhouse Poland, Navigators and General, Colemans and Jo Malone who without them this event would not have been possible.
