Sunseeker 131 Yacht

The latest Sunseeker superyacht

British boatbuilding is back. The UK is a major force in series superyacht production, and here's our guide to three new yachts to look out for from British builders.

1. Sunseeker's latest: the 131 Yacht

Designed with client feedback in mnd, Sunseeker's new 131 Yacht, whose interiors were recently revealed, is a progression of the successful Sunseeker 40 Metre Yacht. This is no rebadge, however: the naval architecture platform is the same, but the changes run deep. The 131 has longer overhangs, extended decks and larger exterior deck areas, larger hull ports, a hardtop, oval section cap-rails and increased interior volume forward thanks to the relocation of the rescue tender, which has meant more accommodation space and, in turn, removed the step down to the en suite in the owner's cabin.

Perhaps most significant is the increased glazing throughout to maximise natural light reaching the interior, complemented by cutaways in the bulwarks and full-height windows on the main and upper decks. The master cabin, too, now features full-height windows creating, as Sunseeker's Sean Robertson, puts it, "a master's cabin with a wow factor".

It's clear that the new model has generated interest, with the first three having already sold early in 2015. You'll be able to see for yourself soon enough: the first 131 Yacht is scheduled to be displayed at the January 2016 boat shows.
