The Sunseeker 155 is 155-foot luxury tri-deck motor yacht with a flybridge that was produced by the legendary British yacht building firm Sunseeker between 2014 and 2016. The largest vessel ever built at the Sunseeker yard in Poole when launched, the 155 also became one of the most luxurious and stylish yachts ever seen, so much so that former F1 driver and team-owner Eddie Jordan snapped one up prior to release. Combining the sort of space you would expect from a Malibu beach mansion with the ultra-modern geometric and jagged touches that have become Sunseeker’s signature style, the 155 provides not only masses of sundeck space but the sort of robust long-distance range that the ultra-wealthy demand.
The secret to the 155’s sense of space may be down to the yacht’s eye-opening 30-foot beam, and the flybridge makes the most of these dimensions by providing a lofty and partially sheltered teak-lined retreat with a forward jacuzzi, a pair of sunpads, two hook-shaped sofas, a rear sun-lounge and a walk-in, marble-lined wet-bar with four stools. The upper deck proves to be just as generous a host, with a rear sundeck featuring a pair of u-shaped lounge sofas with teak breakfast tables and a couple of stern-facing sunpads. LED-lit side-decks on this level lead to a cutaway side terrace built out of the bulwark as well as a foredeck with an integral sofa with a pair of cocktail tables. The upper salon, meanwhile, features masses of dramatic glazing, plush sofas, an indoor bar inspired by the Art Deco cocktail lounges of old, a circular dining table, room for an optional upper stateroom or gym and access to the elevated wheelhouse. The wheelhouse boasts all the latest instrumentation required for long, blue-water voyages including Sleipner stern and bow thruster controls, power-steering, Furuno N700 Navtex display panels, Simrad autopilot, Sailor VHF radio and more. All Sunseeker Yachts leave the shipyard well-equipped for luxury cruising.
On the main deck there is a further aft deck with a U-shaped sofa, while curved sliding glass doors with stainless steel frames lead into a main salon with a lavish seating area and a formal dining room for up to 12 guests, all exquisitely framed by panoramic side windows and a set of side doors leading out to a second cocktail terrace. Interior treatments are subject to customisation by renowned designers like Sallyanne Holmes, but typically include high-gloss timber floors, authentic leather furnishings, marble surfaces, bronze-effect trim, light oak panelling and plush upholstery for an effortlessly sophisticated atmosphere. You will also find the enclosed galley on this level, a space with country-kitchen dimensions, Liebherr fridge-freezer units, a Baron griddle with a separate Teppanyaki hot plate, a Hoshizaki ice-chipper, a Giork combination oven, a Hoonved industrial-spec dishwasher and marble or granite work surfaces. At the front of the main deck sits the owner’s stateroom, a full-beam work of art with two walk-in dressing rooms, a work desk, a guest lobby, a king-sized bed, a recessed outdoor balcony and a large double-bathroom with two of everything and a luxury bathtub.
The Sunseeker 155 also includes sleeping space for up to eight more overnight guests on the lower deck, across a pair of en-suite twin bedrooms and two en-suite double staterooms, each benefiting from panoramic mullioned hull windows and generous storage space. A privately accessed crew quarters also includes rest space for up to 6 members of staff, with four crew bathrooms, a private galley and a dinette lounge bound to keep your team happy. At the very rear of the lower-deck space and accessed via transom steps is the aft-beach-club, where a double-length hydraulic swimming platform folds down from the transom wall and connects to an internal, almost sea-level lounge area with a glazed door, a U-shaped sofa, a wet-bar and a day-head.
Due to the aft-beach club the tender garage door has been shifted to the starboard side of the yacht, and is large enough to store a 7-meter Williams tender, a pair of jet-skis, four Seabobs and much more besides, while another tender can be stored out on the foredeck where a crane allows for easy lifting to and from the water.
You can expect top speeds of over 22 knots thanks to a pair of MTU 12V 4000 M73L diesel engines, while at a cruising pace of 10 knots the Sunseeker 155 boasts an incredible range of around 4,500 nautical miles. An FRP, semi-displacement hull with a round bilge, a long keel, a double-height bow and both RINA and MCA L2 certification proves to be immensely seaworthy in a range of conditions, while the addition of an optional Quantum QC1800 zero-speed stabilizer eliminates most roll while at anchor.
