The Sunseeker 76 is a 77-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was launched by the UK-based yacht building company in 2018. Instantly recognisable at profile thanks to a sleek exterior, aggressive styling, trapezoidal windows and an expansive flybridge, this yacht was an immediate hit with critics, who lauded this vessel’s sporty feel, masses of ultra-luxurious living space and impeccable seaworthiness. No surprise, then, that the Sunseeker 76 bagged the title for “Best International Motor Yacht Between 15m and 24m” at the 2018 Christofle Yacht Style awards held in Phuket, Thailand, nor that it followed this up by being named as the “Best Flybridge over 60ft” at the 2020 Boat Dusseldorf yacht show. The Sunseeker 76 also proved to be an instant best-seller with customers, too, with over 30 models sold to discerning buyers around the globe within a year of release. Sunseeker Yachts are used to being on the receiving end of international boating accolades.
The Sunseeker 76 boasts the sort of outdoor entertaining and leisure space you would usually expect to find on a much larger superyacht. The flybridge, for instance, is a teak-lined space that is large enough to host a jacuzzi spa pool, an Ibiza-style forward sunpad lounge, a U-shaped dining sofa with a table, a walk-in wet-bar with a Marine Electric grill and a Vitrofrigo icemaker as well as a full set of upper helm controls with a pair of helm seats. This space is partially covered by a fiberglass hard-top with a radar arch and a retractable glazed sunroof, while the sides of the bridge are lined with a Venturi-style windshield at the front and guardrails at the back for superb visibility. One level down and there is just as much room to enjoy yourself in the sun, with the foredeck boasting a pair of two-seater modular sunpads and a Portuguese bridge-style sofa with a breakfast table. The sheltered aft-deck, meanwhile, plays host to an L-shaped side sofa, a transom sofa with a dining table, and side steps down to a full-beam hydraulic swimming platform that can be fitted with X-Tend sun-loungers or used to host a Williams 385 water tender.
Interior spaces can be customized to your heart’s content, with choices of flooring and paneling including materials like glossy American walnut, satin-finished silver oak and veneered cherrywood. Upon entering this lavish space through stainless steel-framed sliding glass doors you will find a pair of sofas to either side of the salon and an amidship dining table with room for up to 8 guests. Across from this sits the galley kitchen that can be either enclosed for private food preparation or flung wide open for a Manhattan loft feel. The galley features quartz-studded granite work tops, a four-zone hob, a microwave, a Miele convection oven, an American-style fridge-freezer unit, a stainless-steel double sink and an extractor fan. Ahead of the galley is a water-tight door out to the side deck where cutaway bulwarks provide an intimate connection with the sea. At the front of the main deck there is a cocoon-style seating area across from the main helm station, where a walnut-lined console holds equipment like Sleipner thruster controls, trim-tab controls, Simrad display panels, VHF Radio and power-assisted steering sitting across from a pair of leather-clad helm chairs.
Below deck there is an en-suite twin bedroom to port, a pair of en-suite double VIP staterooms and a full-beam owner’s stateroom benefiting from dramatic trapezoidal windows, a loveseat, a king-sized bed, a work desk, a dressing room area and a bathroom lined in white marble with two sinks and a waterfall shower. There is also a rear crew quarters for two with its own bathroom and a mini-living space.
A brand-new proprietary V-hull gives the Sunseeker 76 plenty of balance as you enjoy island hopping, though for extra roll reduction this yacht can also be fitted with a Sleipner Side Power Vector curved fin stabilizer system. A pair of MAN V12 1550MHP diesel engines offer full-throttle top speeds in excess of 33 knots with cruising speeds clocking in at 25 knots. If you choose to glide along at the more sedate pace of 10 knots, meanwhile, you can expect a range of more than 800 nautical miles thanks to a fuel tank holding 6,000 liters of diesel.
