Sunseeker to launch new entry-level sportscruiser

See photos of the new 38 Portofino, which should put Poole superyacht yard Sunseeker back into the mainstream market

Sunseeker has revealed conceptual plans for a new 38ft hardtop model, due for launch at the 2012 London International Boat Show.

SEE PHOTOS – go to our Sunseeker Portofino 38 gallery for a first look at the conceptual designs.

Sterndrive powered and sporting typically aggressive lines, the 38 Portofino looks packed with must-have sportscruiser accessories, such as a vast canvas sunroof system, hull side windows for the three-berth mid cabin and a four-seat helm layout.

Below decks the layout looks fairly conventional with no details yet on the interior finish, however, if Sunseeker decides to get creative with what it describes as its “entry-level” model, we could be in for something special.

MBM understands that dealer Sunseeker UK is taking orders on the boat at a base price of £295,000 excluding VAT, with its Poole office hoping to offer demonstrations on this latest model by autumn of this year.
