Sunseeker International‘s Flybridge Manhattan motoryacht range is renowned for packing innovation, luxury and performance into an exceptionally graceful frame. Following this same design ethos, the British company has produced the exciting all new Manhattan 73 which will be launched at the forthcoming Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show, at Excel London from 7-16 January 2011.
The new Manhattan 73 features a brand new hull design which allows for space to be maximised throughout and, for the first time, Sunseeker will be offering a joystick manoeuvring system to provide greater control of the vessel when docking.
The spacious interior, both in the main and lower deck levels, includes three ensuite double cabins, including a full beam midships master suite, together with a fourth twin cabin. As well as plenty of accommodation for the owner, family and guests, there is also a further option for a separate day head on the lower deck.
The crew accommodation is accessed from the aft end and ensures complete privacy for guests, while the cabin offers accommodation for two with a separate head and shower compartment.
The main saloon is situated on one level following right through to the helm position. It includes an adaptable entertainment space, providing ample seating and featuring a separate dining and galley area, and is flooded with light from the superstructure panoramic windows.
The aft deck incorporates luxurious seating, including a table with the option to convert into a ‘daybed’ come sunbathing space. Stairs lead to the vast flybridge area which provides great flexibility with two back-to-back areas offering space to dine outside, or to sit back and enjoy the view.
Ample sunbathing forward, wetbar, and full helm station with separate helm and co-pilot seat all contribute to making a very usable and practical flybridge area. The standard hydraulic platform make launch and recovery of a tender extremely easy, with this platform doubling as a fantastic water level deck when lowered.
As with all in the Manhattan range, performance is paramount. The Manhattan 73 is expected to perform at speeds in excess of 32 knots, with the larger engine options providing the ability to cruise at an easy 25 knots.
Robert Braithwaite, Sunseeker founder, said: “The Manhattan 73 is a flybridge motoryacht which maximises space and comfort while offering a level of flexibility in its interior design to accommodate an owner’s every desire. It’s an example of a modern, versatile and fast motoryacht which is ideal for those who enjoy those exhilarating wind-in-the-hair moments when out at sea.”
