SUNSEEKER UNVEILS DESIGNS FOR ITS RADICAL 133 YACHT

 SEPTEMBER 2019

Sunseeker is delighted to announce details of yet another exciting new model, the 133 Yacht.

 

This radical model has been designed with a new ultra-efficient round-bilge semi-displacement hull form, paving the way for a completely new design philosophy for the next generation of Sunseeker yachts. The new 133 Yacht, part of the new Superyacht series, is the first-ever Sunseeker with a vertical bow and with a beam of 31’, contains 27 percent more interior volume than its sistership, the 131 Yacht. Remarkably, she offers just 15% less volume than the previous flagship 155 Yacht and with a gross tonnage of 448GT, she is available with MTU 16V engines with 2,600hp for a maximum top speed of 24kts or efficient displacement cruising over distances of as much as 3,500nm. MTU’s Hybrid system can now be specified for the first time with their smaller 12V engines to deliver a multitude of scenarios from improving range still further to allowing zero emissions whilst cruising or anchoring.

 

The new 133 Yacht is part of a major new product development plan announced by Sunseeker’s CEO, Andrea Frabetti and she will be ready to launch in 2021. Her volumous hull will be molded and fitted with main engines, underfloor systems and weather deck in Sunseeker’s Osprey Quay shipyard prior to being transferred to the Pendennis shipyard in Falmouth where she will undergo her fit-out and completion to the yards exacting standards.

 

Sunseeker has designed the 133 Yacht with discerning clientele in mind. It understands that customers are spending more time on board, both at sea and at anchor, with increased comfort and the quality of life on board being of supreme importance. The new 133 Yacht will benefit from reduced noise, more usable space and the latest technology including SCR systems, future-proofing against upcoming changes to emission regulations.

 

Another fantastic feature of the 133 Yacht is the configuration of the upper ‘Sky Lounge’ deck. Owners can access the foredeck via two parallel side stairwells or through the upper deck itself allowing seamless access and less movement through the interior of the yacht.

 

The fresh design direction for this new model goes beyond her dramatic new exterior lines. There is flexibility in how the ‘Beach Club’ and tender arrangements can be configured. The first option is to have a traditional garage with ample stowage for PWC’s, toys and equipment or alternatively, owners can choose to have a dedicated full beam, spacious ‘Beach Club’ at the stern whilst a Williams 460 SportJet tender sits within the foredeck spa pool, launched via its adjacent crane. In this scenario, owners may wish to tow a larger tender, such as Sunseeker’s own high performance Hawk 38.

 

The aft deck entertainment area is fully integrated into the overall design, merging seamlessly with the vast saloon due to its fully-flush floor. In addition, the transition between the two spaces is replicated overhead thanks to the linear detail of the ceiling panels. A central bar unit sits just aft of the saloon, fully opened to the outdoors via invisible bi-fold doors on either side and an electrically lowering central glass panel. Entertaining in style across such considerable interior and exterior decks just got a lot more interesting.

 

Creating an important first impression, guests are welcomed on board via double doors amidships leading to a spacious starboard lobby. Within is a feature staircase across all floors allowing access to the main saloon and dining areas aft and master and guest cabins forward. On the port side, the side deck and side door on both main decks can be used exclusively for crew, thereby aiding the privacy of owner and guests.

 

The interiors, designed by long-term partner Design Unlimited are understandably opulent but the first impression is one of light, space, detail, technology and infinite mood choice via subtle lighting integration.

 

This is a yacht that owners and guests will want to spend extended time on board whether that be inside in immense luxury or the numerous entertaining spaces outdoors from the foredeck, ‘Sky Lounge’, aft deck or impressive ‘Beach Club’ with direct water access.

 

Characteristics:

  • Length Overall – 01m        131’ 3”
  • Max Beam – 50       31’ 0”
  • No of cabins – 5
  • Gross Tonnage – 448 GT
