The Sunseeker 88 is an 86-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was released by the British yacht-building firm in 2021. This vessel replaces the previous 88 model from 2009 and offers upgraded engines, a wider beam, an entirely new angular superstructure with extensive glazing, an interior that oozes contemporary style and a pioneering new beach club setting to aft.
Across the central portion of the teak-lined flybridge is a fiberglass hard-top with a radar arch and a retractable sunroof covering a marble-topped wet-bar with a grill and three stools to port and a dining sofa with a table to starboard. At the rear of the bridge there is room for an optional jacuzzi spa pool or a set of sun-loungers, as well as a modular sunpad that connects to the dining sofa. Placed at the front of the flybridge you will find a set of al-fresco upper helm controls with superb visibility and a snug cocoon-style forward lounge with a hooked shaped sofa, all shielded from spray by a Venturi-style windshield.
On the Sunseeker 88’s main deck there is a spacious sheltered aft-deck with room for a set of free-standing furniture and a transparent glazed transom wall. Side steps either side of this lead down to a full-beam hydraulic swimming platform that can easily be transformed into a beach club with X-Tend sun-loungers, lockers for a pair of Seabobs and a rain shower at the touch of a button. Sun worshippers, meanwhile, are likely to head to the expansive foredeck, where they will find a three-panel sunpad with marina-facing views as well as a Portuguese Bridge-style U-shaped sofa hugging a breakfast table.
Stepping into the salon via sliding glass doors with glistening stainless-steel frames you will discover an ultra-modern interior with a sedate feel. Plush carpeting, teak floors, bronze-effect paneling, panoramic side windows, geometric recessed lighting, minimalist chandeliers, hand-stitched furnishings and brushed metallic fixtures await as you make your way across the main deck. There is a sprawling hook-shaped sofa to port, cabinetry and a home entertainment system to starboard, and a formal dining table with space for up to eight diners located amidship. You will pass a day-head and steps down to the lower level as you make your way to the wheelhouse, where you will find two widescreen electronics panels, power steering, leather-clad seats, thruster and trim tab controls, as well as all the latest hi-tech gadgets needed for confident long-distance cruising. A unique fixture aboard the Sunseeker 88 is its forward galley kitchen which benefits from views out of the sloping windshield towards the foredeck. This live-in space boasts black marble worktops, a serving bar with two stools, a mounted widescreen HD TV, a four-zone hob, a convection oven, a microwave, a wine chiller, fridge-freezer units, a stainless-steel double sink and a watertight door out to the side-deck.
There is room for up to 8 overnight guests on the lower deck of this vessel, across a pair of en-suite twins, an en-suite VIP double room to the bow and a full-beam owner’s stateroom located amidship. The owner’s suite benefits from knife-insert windows and features a side sofa, a work desk or vanity station, a king-sized bed, a dressing room with teak-lined closets, bedside cabinets and a large marble-clad bathroom with a waterfall shower and a pair of sinks. Crew space is positioned at the rear of the lower deck and includes sleeping quarters for four, a private head and a mini-dinette.
The Sunseeker 88 is a swift mover across a range of open water conditions, with top speeds of 28 knots coming courtesy of a pair of MTU 10V 1950MHP diesel inboard engines. At lower cruising speeds of 8 knots, the 88 has a range of around 1,300 nautical miles, more than enough to keep you going on extended summer voyages. The Sunseeker shipyard is dedicated to providing exceptional performance during cruising.
