The Sunseeker 34M is a 111-foot luxury superyacht with a flybridge that was produced by British yacht-building firm Sunseeker between 2009 and 2011. A smash hit with buyers around the world, who loved this yacht’s classic style, immense seafaring ability and masses of luxurious space, Sunseeker sold 16 34M models across the yacht’s three-year production run.
Easily one of the most elegant vessels ever built at the Sunseeker Yachts Poole, England boatyard, the 34M boasts an almost full-beam flybridge extending to the stern that is sheltered by a fiberglass hard-top with a retractable sunroof. This teak-lined space plays host to a rear sun-pad area surrounding a custom-made hexagonal hot tub, while you will find a glass-topped walk-in wet-bar to starboard with four bar stools, an electric grill, an icemaker and plenty of chilled storage. To port there is a sprawling seating area with a huge U-shaped leather sofa surrounding a pair of dining tables, from where you can enjoy many an al-fresco meal, while at the front of the bridge there is an upper helm station with superb visibility. A water-tight companionway door, meanwhile, leads into the enclosed pilothouse, a perfect place to command your Sunseeker 34M safe from any inclement or adverse weather. The dashboard features a trio of Simrad or Raymarine display panels, Side Power thruster controls, optional joysticks, power-assisted steering and VHF radio across from comfortable, leather-lined helm chairs.
On the main level there is a U-shaped sofa with a cocktail table out on the foredeck, with a spacious aft-deck to the rear featuring a transom sofa and side steps down to the full-beam, teak-lined hydraulic bathing platform that is one of the largest on the market. Also impressive in terms of sheer scale is the transom garage, large enough to host a Williams jet tender, a pair of jet skis and a number of Seabobs. Curved patio doors open up toward a sophisticated main deck salon, where light oak and American walnut surfaces, stainless steel trim and recessed lighting usher you into lavish seating area with a pair of upholstered sofas and two armchairs. There is also a formal dining table with room for up to eight guests in here, before you come to the enclosed galley, where granite or marble work surfaces meet a host of Miele appliances. To the front of the main deck there is room for an owner’s stateroom with a lobby, a walk-in dressing room, its own cinema-room, a work desk, a king-sized bed and a bathroom larger than most yacht’s cabins. Rooms on this level benefit from dramatic side-glazing and cutaway gunwales for unimpeded views out over the water.
Eight more guests can get a great night’s rest on the lower deck, where a pair of en-suite twins are joined by two en-suite master double staterooms, all with plenty of storage and plush carpeting. There is also crew space towards the bow for up to six members of staff, and this area includes a mini galley.
Though the 34M is one of the largest yachts in the Sunseeker fleet this does not stop it from being a swift and powerful vessel with superb agility. You can expect top speeds of 26 knots when pushing this boat to its limit, thanks to a pair of MAN or Volvo Penta shaft-drive engines. A Don Shead-designed hull with a fine bow, meanwhile, cuts through the waves with ease, while the addition of Trac Digital Fin Stabilizers keeps this yacht steady while at rest.
