In 1969, in Poole, England, Robert Braithwaite had a dream for a different type of power boat. He decided he was going to use never before used materials as well as cutting-edge technology to create vessels specifically designed for the customer's vision.
At Poole Powerboats, he sold many of the leading boat brands including American built Owens Cruisers. When Owens decided not to sell in the United Kingdom anymore, Braithwaite saw an opportunity to expand his design vision for a new kind of power boat. He approached the Owens UK facility and purchased their boat molds. As the 1970’s dawned, they seemed to have an open market as no one in the United Kingdom was building sport and leisure boats.
By 1972, the company had produced both their Sovereign 17 and Sovereign 20 models and began to expand in the sports cruiser market with the release of two revolutionary designs. As the 1980’s approached, Robert took on his brother John as well as well as one of the premier designers of racing boats and super yachts at the time, Don Shead. From then on, Sunseeker began to establish its reputation and following as one of the legendary boat builders of the world.
The decades of hard work and planning has culminated in some of the finest yachts in the world. The pride of the Sunseeker fleet is the Sunseeker 131Tri-Deck. Coming in at an awe-inspiring 131 and one-half feet, the Sunseeker 131 comfortably accommodates as many as twelve passengers in comfort and style that is unrivaled anywhere in the world.
With a beam measuring 26'7" and a range of 1,500 nautical miles, the Sunseeker 131 cruises at a top speed of 25 knots. Superior craftsmanship and attention to detail; from the main deck that features a lounge, dining room and full galley to the enchanting Skydeck, to cabins that will remind you of the finest of five-star hotels.
Sunseeker has yachts ranging in size that will be the perfect fit for any ocean-going vision. The Sunseeker 131 sits atop their line with their other luxury yachts coming in at 115’, 92’, 86’, and 77’. The entire portfolio of Sunseeker superyachts is what other builders believe the future will be.
With five different yacht models to choose from, Sunseeker remains in the forefront of the world’s most prestigious yacht builders whose name is synonymous with unparalleled artistry as well as unmatched quality and performance.
For Sunseeker, the future of high-performance luxury yachts is already here. From the humblest beginnings of nearly a half-century ago, the Sunseeker vision of stunning luxury and overpowering performance has yet to be equaled.
