Sunseeker set to mark milestone at Cannes show

Sunseeker will mark the delivery of its 100th luxury performance yacht in the 100-foot-plus “superyacht” category

British luxury performance motoryacht builder Sunseeker International will have eight yachts on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September and will mark an important milestone for the brand.

Sunseeker will mark the delivery of its 100th luxury performance yacht in the 100-foot-plus “superyacht” category. A VIP champagne breakfast will be held Sept. 9 to celebrate the achievement.

“We are really looking forward to displaying our iconic range of luxury performance motoryachts at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and delighted to be celebrating the delivery of 100 luxury yachts over 100 feet,” sales director Sean Robertson said in a statement. “This major milestone for the business will be celebrated with Sunseeker owners at the show, and we’ll also be sharing more details of the exciting new models set for launch in 2016.”

The launch of Sunseeker’s first 100-foot-plus model, the 105 Yacht, in the summer of 2000, was the initial step in the brand’s progress toward becoming a major player in the superyacht sector. The builder’s boats now range from the 101 Sport Yacht to the 155 Yacht, with a diverse range of options in between.

The Cannes Yachting Festival will be held Sept. 8-13 in the resort town on the French Riviera.
