“The exterior and interior are fundamentally very different from the current range – said Sean Robertson, Sales Director of Sunseeker International, Sunseeker – who is proud to produce the world’s best high performance luxury powerboats and the design and engineering behind the 8X project embodies our next generation of larger models.

British shipyard Sunseeker unveils its latest project, Project 8X, which will be launched in autumn 2020. This boat will be the first of a new generation of yachts with a whole new design idea that aims to revolutionise the design of high performance luxury yachts.

Superyacht sensations

Designed for a way of “being” that for now is just a super yacht, this boat will have large volumes, an internal open plan and a “beach club” four times larger than a normal platform. The sunken transom and bathing platform of the Beach Club are part of a well-equipped relaxation area with ample space for water toys such as a Williams 460 SportJet and JetSki, equipped with an integrated remote-controlled tender crane inside the aft coaming, SeaBob deck cabinets, optional hydraulic bathing platform 3.2m x 2.5m, a “self-levelling” walkway, integrated drawer barbecue, dedicated refrigeration and shower. Everything to experience the sea like on a super yacht.

The boat on deck: space outside

The space outside is one of the strong points of this boat, which is designed for leisure, full of seats, places to sunbathe and dine. The bow deck can also incorporate a 140-inch cinema screen, laser projector and surround sound system. The flybridge is dedicated to boat life with a bar with stools, barbecue, refrigerators with drawer of the helmsman and optional whirlpool bath. The carbon fibre hardtop with full width retractable canopy provides shade for an exceptionally generous seat and a dining area that can be configured or left open depending on the exact needs of the owner. Its single main deck, saloon and cabins are innovative in design and the selection of materials aims to win over even the most demanding owners. The interior finish combines traditional elegance with contemporary updates. The layering of the structural elements and the mix of furniture and fabrics seems timeless with a touch of modernity that exudes simplicity and sophistication.

The boat below deck

The salon is large and naturally illuminated by large windows.  A dedicated dining area for eight people can be positioned to the left or to the right, while a forward kitchen in contemporary apartment style, with partition walls if necessary, offers ample space and direct access to the side deck for the crew.  The full-beam master cabin offers panoramic views through its 2.5 metre windows. The furnishings have been carefully designed with the yacht’s elegant lines in mind, with large curved bulkheads, wooden panels, curved sofa, service desk and a king-size slatted bed offering additional storage underneath. A full width decorative mirror houses the television, another technological addition to this yacht.
