Sunseeker Project 8X Named 87 Yacht
2019-09-04By Miranda Blazeby

Sunseeker has revealed new details and renderings of its new superyacht Project 8X, which has now been named the 87 Yacht.

The 27.1 metre yacht will be built at a new production facility at the main shipyard in Poole and is scheduled for a summer 2020 launch. The yard said the model will boast a 20% increase in interior volume compared to the Sunseeker 86, which it will continue to build due to the model's popularity.

It comes after the British yard first unveiled the yacht at the Boot Dusseldorf boat show earlier this year, promising that the model would "showcase the fresh design direction of Sunseeker’s next generation of larger models."

Embodying the “feel of a true superyacht,” the 87 Yacht will be “fundamentally different from the current Sunseeker range" by combining "striking lines" with an open plan interior, the yard said.

A standout feature is the 6m x 4m beach club, which will feature an in-built barbecue, rain shower and adjustable, integrated X-TEND sunbeds. Automated electrically, these beds can be raised upwards to face the cockpit or lowered to face aft from the beach club. The adjoining deck area is big enough to store a Jet Ski, Williams 460 SportJet and two SeaBobs in self draining lockers.

An optional infinity spa pool and second barbecue sit on the flybridge above, accompanied by a wet bar, seating and dining area.

The cockpit meanwhile will feature freestanding furniture, wet bar, fridge and sink while the foredeck has three separate seating areas, as well as the option to have a laser projector and 140 inch cinema screen.

The interior décor will “combine traditional elegancy with contemporary updates”, the yard said, with floor to ceiling windows illuminating the living accommodation with natural light.

Various accommodation options are available with the layout including either four or five guest cabins, including a full beam master and forward VIP. The crew quarters meanwhile will accommodate a maximum staff of five and include a kitchenette, crew mess and ensuite.
