It's big

Here are some images of the new Sunseeker 37m, owned by former F1 driver Eddie Irvine and soon to be set up for charter.

The £8.7m vessel got a suitably scene-stealing launch as part of the London Boat Show opening ceremony with the band of the Royal Marines and a London gospel choir performing in front of a crowd of onlookers on the quay this morning.

On first inspection the boat is every inch the world class superyacht it was claimed to be – and as Sunseeker chairman Robert Braithwaite said at the launch, a triumph for British engineering, having been designed and built in Poole, Dorset.

See the March issue of MBY for more on the yacht.
