Sunseeker 155: British Builder Launches Its Biggest Yacht Ever

Formula One Racing personality Eddie Jordan was on hand to witness the official British launch of the new Sunseeker 155, the company’s largest ever boat.

The launch of the stunning megayacht was held in Poole, UK, with the Formula One Racing star in attendance alongside Sunseeker International’s Group President, Robert Braithwaite. It was a double celebration, as the team were not only celebrating the launch of the yacht, but also the commissioning of a second 155 Yacht, following a sale in Dubai.

As the biggest project ever undertaken by the United Kingdom-based yacht manufacturer, the official launch was a monumental day for Sunseeker. With the design concept conceived in the United Kingdom, and the build and testing phase taking place in Poole, it was very apt that the Sunseeker 155 was officially launched in Poole, too.

Commissioned by the Jordan Family Trust, the first 155 Yacht has plenty of customized elements requested by Jordan, making it something truly unique to him.

With the 155 Yacht, Sunseeker has taken the concept of semi-custom building with ultra-personal customization one step further, with a modular build methodology that enables owners to have direct input not only into the interior design and layout, but also the actual superstructure of the yacht. The 155 Yacht also boasts impressive accommodation for up to 12 guests in ultimate style and luxury, while the forward lower deck area can accommodate up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin.

But it is the contemporary interior and exterior design that truly makes the 155 Yacht stand out from the crowd. Hull number one has a completely painted exterior, featuring a stunning ice blue hull. The unique interior features an exclusive design palette that highlights gray, blue, green, and an overall chic aqua feel. The first 155 Yacht also includes a formal dining area with side patio doors, balconies for uninterrupted sea views whilst dining and a fully equipped commercial galley.

While the spacious and stylish private accommodation is clearly one of the most appealing features of Sunseeker’s flagship yacht, it is the expanse of entertainment space which makes it truly stand out. The upper deck alone features a huge sky lounge which can be dedicated to private entertainment.

Robert Braithwaite, Group President at Sunseeker International, says, “We were incredibly proud to launch the 155 Yacht here in Poole with Mr. Jordan. The 155 Yacht is a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to testing, the yacht was designed and built in Poole, so it really is British through and through and the fact the launch took place in Poole made it all the more special.”
