Sunseeker to celebrate Best of Britain in Southampton
Motorboat & Yachting: Sunseeker has announced its Best of Britain display for the Southampton Boat Show, including a San Remo wrapped with the Union Jack.
Sunseeker has announced that it will be celebrating the best of British design and manufacturing at the Southampton Boat Show which runs from 11th September until 20th September 2015.
The Poole-based manufacturer will be bringing together a collection of high-end and luxury items from some of the UK’s most prestigious firms in a private exhibition.
These will include a Mulberry handbag designed by Cara Delavigne, a Roger Smith watch, a Cleave decorative bowl and a portrait of The Queen by David Bailey.
Continuing with the theme, the firm will also be exhibiting a Sunseeker San Remo sportscruiser deck out with a Union Jack vinyl hull wrap, which was created as part of the Government’s Britain is Great publicity campaign.
This is not the first time that Sunseeker has flown the flag in this way – last year the firm wrapped a Portofino to celebrate the launch of the British Motor Yacht Show.
Bryan Jones, marketing manager at Sunseeker, said: “The Southampton Boat Show is a real highlight of the international boating calendar and an opportunity for British brands to showcase the very best of what they have to offer to the world.
“We are delighted to be showcasing the work of some of the very finest and most talented designers and luxury craftsmen in the country.”
In a break from tradition, Sunseeker International will not be launching a brand new model at this year’s Southampton Boat Show, after a busy year in which the firm launched the Predator 57, Manhattan 65 and 86 Yacht.
However, a wide selection of motor yachts from the firm’s current range will be available to view, as well as plans for the 95 Yacht model.
What’s more, Sunseeker Charters will be running a Platinum Experience, which includes access to a private hospitality lounge and a ride on a Predator 56.
