Sunseeker International will showcase its yachts among other luxury brands during the United Kingdom’s Sept. 11-20 Southampton Boat Show as it hosts the British government’s Great Exhibition in the VIP area of its stand.

VIPs will have access to modern works of art as the display showcases the highest end of what Britain has to offer, an effort to promote the United Kingdom as a world-class destination for trade, tourism, investment, design, engineering and creativity to generate jobs and growth.

Items on display will include a gown handcrafted by British Couture designer Nicholas Oakwell; a unique Great Mulberry handbag designed by leading British model Cara Delavigne; a decorative bowl designed and handcrafted by Cleave, Court Jewellers and Medallists; a bespoke handcrafted watch by independent watchmaker Roger Smith; and four portrait photographs of the Queen by David Bailey.

In honor of the exhibition, Sunseeker has created a Great edition of the San Remo, dressed with a Union Jack wrap, that the motoryacht manufacturer will display on its stand at the show.

“We are delighted to be exhibiting these exquisite objects on the Sunseeker stand alongside our iconic range of luxury performance motoryachts,” Sunseeker marketing manager Bryan Jones said in a statement.

“The Southampton Boat Show is a real highlight of the international boating calendar and an opportunity for British brands to showcase the very best of what they have to offer to the world. We are delighted to be showcasing the work of some of the very finest and most talented designers and luxury craftsmen in the country.”
