Sunseeker 28 Meter Yacht
Best Custom Yacht in Motor Boat of the Year Awards 2013
The award was announced at a gala evening hosted at London's Savoy on 14th January 2013 to celebrate the best boats in the world today. The stunning Sunseeker 28 Meter Yacht beat off competition from some of the world's finest manufacturers from across the world, including Princess, Arcadia and Ferretti.
The 28 Meter Yacht, which launched in January 2012, uses ultra-modern materials to reach new heights in design and engineering excellence. Its revolutionary use of space incorporates full height and wrap-around glazing to create a stunning effect both inside and out.
The judging panel commented: "The Sunseeker 28 Meter Yacht combines dramatic new looks with high-tech materials, strong performance, eye catching features and great livability...and for the first time ever it's British."
Robert Braithwaite, Group President of Sunseeker International said: "We are delighted that the 28 Meter Yacht has been recognized with such a prestigious award. It is testament to the passion, talent and hard-work of the Sunseeker team who put so much into every yacht we make.
The 28 Meter Yacht's spectacular use of space incorporates a vast saloon in the center of the yacht, with a range of cabin plans to accommodate up to eight guests and four crew. And with a maximum speed of up to 29 yachts, and a range of 400 nautical miles, the stunning yacht delivers Sunseeker's famous 'wind in the hair' performance.
The Sunseeker 28 Meter Yacht was nominated alongside the all-new Portofino 40 in the Best Sports Cruiser category.
The Motor Boat of the Year Awards are judged by the world-renowned editorial team at Motor Boats Monthly and Motor Boat & Yachting magazines.
