Sunseeker International has released the first exclusive CGI images of the new 116 Yacht currently under production in Dorset, UK. The yacht is set for launch in Spring 2016.

Featuring elegant lines, open plan layout and stylish interiors, this model showcases the new design direction that Sunseeker’s next generation of 100ft+ models will take.

The company says that this project also underlines the group’s commitment to bringing more exciting new products to market, and continuing to invest in cutting edge technical and design innovation.

Sean Robertson, Sales Director at Sunseeker International said: “Sunseeker prides itself on producing the world’s finest luxury performance motor yachts, and the new 116 Yacht achieves that goal in stunning fashion. Its striking lines and more open plan layout hint at the new design direction that will influence our new crop of 100ft+ models, but it remains quintessentially and unmistakeably a Sunseeker.”

The 116 yacht shares the engineering platform of the 115 Sport Yacht, but brings a new deck and superstructure design.

New design

The foredeck has been developed into a whole entertainment area of its own, with a new ‘Club’ concept and the option of a large hot tub.

The flybridge boasts a retractable sunroof and generous seating and dining area, with space for a wet bar, sun-loungers, companion helm seating, and standard hot tub.

An electronically operated carbon fibre gull-wing door also provides easy access for crew from the wheelhouse to the exterior side deck.

The most eye-catching new design features include larger and lower windows in the full beam master stateroom, creating bigger, brighter owner’s accommodation affording maximum privacy.

Full height glass in the saloon also combines with sleek cut away deck bulwarks to flood the living accommodation with natural daylight, bringing an astonishing sense of size and space to the interior for a yacht of its size.

Extra touches in the interior include the platform level seating and hidden platform shower. The stern garage has room for a large tender and two jet skis.

Based on the classic Sunseeker deep V hull, the 116 Yacht still has performance at its heart. The yacht has a cruising range of 16-18 knots and maximum speed of 26 knots (depending on engine option).

Standard guest configuration is for ten guests in five cabins, with up to five crew, but this can be flexed depending on the layout and options selected.

“Like all our next wave of superyachts, every element of the 116’s design and layout can be individually tailored through our unique ‘Bespoke’ service, “ explains Robertson

The 116 yacht is the second of two larger models Sunseeker has set for launch in early 2016.
