Sunseeker is a luxury brand with global strength and a track record of consistently defining new standards. The belief in innovation and the tireless pursuit of perfection means the boatyard Sunseeker never settles for second best. Sunseeker has steadily grown from its humble beginnings forty years ago. Today, Sunseeker has stabilised its position as one of the world's leading luxury motor yacht manufacturers. Sunseeker has an extensive network of dealers spanning the globe, providing worldwide service for a world-class brand.
The company philosophy of pursuing perfection and excellence has secured the Sunseeker shipyard a prominent position in the maritime market. Sunseeker was born out of the love of adventure that came with economic and technological boom that followed the Second World War. Its product range has been steadily expanding since then.
Thanks to Computer Aided Design and Manufacture (CAD/CAM), Sunseeker lines that are produced on paper and on the computer screen are transformed into reality using the latest technology and creative input. This is complimented by the Sunseeker company's long experience in traditional boat construction.
Numerical Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) allows Sunseeker designers to try out various hull shapes, lengths and widths before the unique mould is manufactured or the five-axis milling machine has to be programmed. Using this method, the seakeeping, fuel economy and handling performance can be evaluated and various drive systems can be tested out many months before the start of the actual Sunseeker yacht building process. The Sunseeker planning phase is critical, nothing is left to chance.
From a family business to a global corporation: Originally "Poole Power Boats", the former name of Sunseeker, was involved in the import and sale of boats from Scandinavia and the USA. In the early 70s, the Sunseeker company began to build and furnish its own boats. One day, when the Sunseeker company exhibited its first 17 and 23 foot boats at a boat show, a boat dealer from southern France said: "If you build the boats in white and fit the full width of the stern with a sundeck, then I will buy them". Thus "Poole Power Boats" reached new harbours and laid the foundations for the construction of its own boats. In the last forty years, the Sunseeker company has achieved many notable breakthroughs and ground-breaking milestones, which have had a major impact on others in the yacht industry.
Over the years, Sunseeker has consistently expanded its product range and ground-breaking developments have often been followed and imitated by other manufacturers.
Since the introduction of its 105 foot yacht, Sunseeker has become a leading manufacturer of luxury yachts on an international level.
