If you like large volumes, the Sunseeker 87 is the boat you are looking for. A project born with the initials X8 and announced at the last Düsseldorf boat show in Cannes, the first model will debut in the second half of 2020. So the British shipyard has provided further details about this yacht, which we would like to point out, it does not replace the Sunseeker 86, but joins it. In fact, compared to her predecessor of a similar size (the Sunseeker 87 is 27.10 metres long and 7.16 metres wide, which is 80 and 70 cm more than the 86 respectively), it shows much more generous spaces and a much more aesthetically pleasing glazed openings than all three other members of the British shipyard’s yacht range. Also on the main deck, so as not to deprive guests of a direct view of the sea.
Worthy of a megayacht, is the huge beach club aft. The double staircase access to the cockpit, the huge aft platform, which thanks to the retraction of the transom, which hides two sunbeds that can be opened, compared to the 86 quadruples the space available for outdoor living. Given the space available, a grill or kitchen can be set up in this area. During navigation, this platform can accommodate a tender in its submersible area, for hauling and launching operations and an additional jet ski.
The megayacht setting becomes evident in the design and comfort choices. Jacuzzi on the flybridge. Dining area separated from the dinette and an additional conversation-reading area. Alternatively, all this space can be used for a large open space, with a dining table separated from the sofa area.
Kitchen located abaft the dashboard and crew quarters with its own kitchen.
The sleeping area is entirely on the lower deck, with the VIP suite forward and the owner’s suite immediately aft. Two other double guest cabins, one with separable beds, also with private bathroom, follow at midship.
