  1. Project 8X Unveiled At Boot Dusseldorf
    The Boot Dusseldorf is currently underway in Germany and UK yacht builder Sunseeker used the opportunity to unveil something new to the world. Project 8X was unveiled on the first day yesterday and Sunseeker says it will showcase striking lines and and an open plan interior concept. The 8X they say will be quite different from the rest of the Sunseeker range that currently exists.
  2. An interesting part of the design is the transom where the Williams 460 SportJet tender is stored across the platform. The crane for handling the tender is cleverly hidden into the structure making it appear are part of the design styling. Once the tender is launched into the water that area will be transformed into a 'beachclub' but naturally not the indoor type that is seen regularly. It will definitely be a relaxing space right by the water. As an option the bathing platform can be hydraulically operated. A barbecue area can also be integrated for great times while on anchor.
  3. The yard says the interior will "ooze sleek simplicity and sophistication". The first hull is expected to be launched in 2020 and will mark a step in a slightly different direction for Sunseeker. The LOA is not available at this time but it is a new thrust by the yard to make these size category yachts with bigger interiors and deck space which translates in a more big-yacht experience. The styling is also changing from the traditional Sunseeker that is known in this size bracket.
