by Risa Merl
UK yacht builder Sunseeker International has launched its new Sunseeker 86 Yacht.
The 26.3m Sunseeker 86 Yacht is a redesigned version of its existing 86 series. Namely, the revamped 86 Yacht features the introduction of a new hull form, designed for displacement speeds. This factor coupled to a 11,000 litre fuel tank will allow the Sunseeker 86 Yacht a respectable range of 1,000-plus at 10 knots nautical miles. Meanwhile, the sporty yacht is predicted to reach a top speed of up to 30 knots.
The refresh also sees the 86 series gain a new bulwark balcony and updated exterior styling. Inside, the layout has been updated and she boasts four large staterooms with en suite bathrooms. Production began on the Sunseeker 86 Yacht back in 2013, and she was scheduled to launch this year. Sunseeker reports that the first hull was sold by Sunseeker Poole. Now splashed, testing has begun on Sunseeker's new 86 Yacht.
