UK boatbuilder temporarily shuts down until the end of April

Following the UK Prime Minister’s coronavirus (COVID-19) update yesterday, Sunseeker International has announced that it is temporarily suspending production until the end of April for the vast majority of employees. Some safety-critical and continuity roles will remain but at a very low level.

”Our actions will ensure that we are in a strong position to resume our substantial new model development programme, manufacturing and deliveries as soon as possible,” says the company in a statement.

“We would like to thank all our staff for their continued and unwavering support during these times. Our gratitude also extends to our suppliers, dealers globally and our loyal customers, keen to get back on the water soon.”

In the interim, Sunseeker says it is working with local NHS supply companies to offer its teams’ support, subject to the guidelines in place.
