One of the most efficient methods to see whether a boat is really beautiful and therefore well-sized and able to comply with conventional beauty standards ( even if beauty, of course, remains a personal concept) is to extrapolate it from the surrounding environment, or better, to put it in the middle of the sea with no dimensional reference. Well, if you don’t understand how large this boat is, it is likely that it is also well-designed.
The Sunseeker sport Yacht 74 has just this characteristic: if you don’t contextualize her, because of passengers on board or because of neighboring boats, you can’t realize her real size. Yet, this 23-meter boat is the largest model in the coupé range, a line that offers a sporty version of all the typical characteristics of the English shipyard: original and recognizable style, reliable construction, high power, extraordinary cruising and top speed and perfect integration with inside and outside environment.
Furthermore, this model, together with its 50-foot predecessor, renovates the range with a new way of using space and light. Thanks to some transparent windows positioned on the deckhouse (in short, a transparent opening bubble where the use of fiberglass is confined to the covering of the astern section of the salon) and the topsides, light floods interiors abundantly. Despite their origins, Sunseeker boats are all dedicated to outdoor life and the Sport Yacht 74 is part of this tradition: both the bow and the stern accommodate large sun pads, equipped with tables and sofas, where guests can fully enjoy conviviality at every speed, even at the 40-knot top one. Two engines up to 3,800hp, combined with a shaft drive system equipped with 5-blade bronze propellers for better hydrodynamic efficiency, deliver a cruising speed of 30 knots. Moreover, the excellent hull design ensures a good range: 330 nm at 10 knots.
Interior layout is ideally divided into two zones: the public and the private one. Unlike many other yachts of the same category, the galley is located on the lower deck. This way, the main deck is entirely covered and offers a wide bright salon with many seats as well as a driving console with pilot and co-pilot seats. There is also the option of replacing the cabinet situated on the port side of the entrance with a two-seat additional sofa.The lower deck, instead, is dedicated to private areas. There are three cabins, each with private bathroom, and a galley. More specifically, standard layout envisages the possibility to have a full-beam master cabin (located amidships, of course), a smaller VIP cabin equipped with a large walk-in closet (it is so spacious that it could be replaced by a bunk-bedded cabin or a dinette) and a third twin-bedded cabin with private bathroom. The galley is located at the foot of the staircase that leads to the upper deck.
