The Sunseeker 28M is a 92-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was launched by the British boat-building firm back in 2012. Sharp looks, a curvaceous profile and masses of glazing combine with plenty of outdoor space and sedate interiors to make the Sunseeker 28M one of the most stylish vessels ever built at Sunseeker’s Poole shipyard. An immediate hit with the critics upon release, this yacht won the title for “Best Production Motor Yacht from 24m to 40m” at the 2012 Asia Boating Awards, as well as winning the prize for “Best Custom Yacht” at the 2012 Motor Boat Awards held in London.
A next-generation carbon fiber canopy with a sunroof and a radar station shelters the front half of this yacht’s teak-lined flybridge, where you will find a forward sunpad, an L-shaped sofa and the upper helm station. Located amidship there is a curved, walk-in wetbar with granite counters, a frosted glass or teak serving platform, an outdoor Kenyon grill, a sink, fridge-freezer units and an icemaker, not to mention space for three custom-made barstools. On the port-side of the bridge there is a U-shaped dining sofa hugging an extending teak breakfast table, as well as a rear sunpad connected to a circular Jacuzzi spa-pool. At the rear of the flybridge there is room for a set of sun-loungers or space for a tender crane and dinghy storage.
One level down and you will discover a foredeck with a pair of two-seaters modular sunpads whose backrests adjoin a pair of curved loveseats. There is also a faux-Portuguese bridge sofa and a breakfast table out here, while generously proportioned side-decks lead to the sheltered aft-deck. The teak-lined aft-deck plays host to a transom dining sofa with a table and a wet-bar console, as well as side-steps down to a full-beam hydraulic swimming platform and a tender garage.
Curved sliding glass doors lead you into the main deck salon, where glossy walnut surfaces and teak-effect Esthec flooring match plush carpeting, stainless steel fixtures and double-height widescreen windows to create a refined and sophisticated atmosphere. There are a pair of side sofas, a bespoke coffee table, cabinetry, armchairs, room for a home entertainment system and a formal dining table for up to 8 guests, while sliding glass doors to the starboard side lead you out onto an extending cocktail terrace sculpted out of the bulwark. Also found on this level is an enclosed galley with granite work surfaces and Miele appliances, along with a wheelhouse hosting a cocoon-style forward lounge and a helm station equipped with Simrad or Raymarine touch-screen panels, Trac bow and stern thruster controls, power-assisted steering and leather-clad chairs.
On the lower-deck there is room for up to 8 overnight guests across an en-suite twin and an en-suite double stateroom located amidship, an en-suite VIP stateroom with a double bed nestled up toward the bow and a full-beam owner’s stateroom. The owner’s suite features panoramic side windows, a king-sized island bed, bedside cabinets, a side-sofa, a work-desk, a walk-in dressing room and a large, marble-clad bathroom with a waterfall shower. There are also crew quarters for up to 4 members of staff towards the rear with its own head, galley and dinette lounge.
Despite the sheer size of the Sunseeker 28M it can still reach top speeds of up to 29 knots with cruising speeds of around 21 knots. Engine options run from a pair of MTU 12V 2000MHP diesels, 1925MHP CAT C32s, MAN 3900PS motors or even Volvo Penta D13 shaft-drives. At the leisurely pace of 10 knots you can expect a globe-trotting range of around 1,200 nautical miles, while the 28M’s hull emphasizes balance and efficiency, and can also come fitted with a Trac digital fin stabilizer system.
