The new Sunseeker Manhattan 66 will make its worldwide debut at the London Boat Show 2017
London Stand G100
Arriving off the back of the Manhattan 52, which launched at Cannes in September and has, according to Sunseeker, secured £30m worth of retail sales, the Sunseeker Manhattan 66 borrows many of its styling cues from the smaller model.
The standard boat comes with the galley located aft in the saloon where it serves the cockpit just as easily as the internal living spaces. There is the option, though, to lose the fourth cabin, move the galley below and gain a large extra seating area aft in the saloon.
In a first for the Poole yard, the amidships master suite has its own direct access staircase leading from the saloon, following in the footsteps of Prestige and Princess.
The cockpit mimics that of the 52 with a pair of bar stools facing into the saloon and a section of counter that extends into the cockpit to be used as an ad hoc bar to serve drinks from.
On the foredeck there is a spacious raised sunpad and a dinette separated by a walkway to aid passage from one deck to the other.
Up top, the flybridge features a long swathe of unbroken seating on the port side that links the full-width sunpad forward to the main dinette aft. Amidships there is a smaller table for serving drinks and snacks, adjacent to the L-shaped wet-bar.
The 66 is available with shafts or pod drives, the options being MAN 1,000hp or 1,200hp for the shaftdrive version and Volvo Penta’s IPS1200 with 900hp per side for those who want pods. Sunseeker’s performance claims are impressive with a predicted 25-knot cruising speed and 34 knots at the top end.
