Sunseeker 155 Yacht enters water for first time in Poole

Biggest Sunseeker ever takes to the water at Sunseeker yard for next phase of commissioning process

Sunseeker’s enormous 155 Yacht has entered the water for the first time at the yard’s factory in Poole.

Full basin trials will now be undertaken on the yacht, owned by repeat Sunseeker customer Eddie Jordan, before sea trials begin later this month.

This phase of the boat’s commissioning will see all its major systems tested to full capacity – a lengthy process given the size and complexity of this project.

Once complete, sea trials are the last stage before handover to Jordan, which is expected to happen in the spring.

“We are incredibly proud of what we have created and look forward to showcasing it to the world.”
