Sunseeker to launch new Manhattan 53 at Sanctuary Cove
Sun, 12 May 2013
Sunseeker has chosen the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (May 23-26) for the Australian launch of the Manhattan 53.
Recently winning the Award, ‘Best Brand Presence In Asia,’ at the prestigious 2013 Asia Boating Awards, spokesperson for Sunseeker East Coast Operations, Mike Garrett, said he is thrilled to be bringing the latest in the range, the Manhattan 53, to the Show.
'We have a long association with Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show – it draws significant buyer interest because of its reputation throughout Asia-Pacific.
'Since the international launch, we’re so pleased to be securing significant sales of our 53 Manhattan. It’s one of the most stylish and high performance flybridge sports motor yachts and has really impressed with its versatility and increased space and volume,' he said.
Reaching a powerfully smooth 32 knots, the vessel is driven by twin diesels up to 1600 hp and has a fuel capacity of 2200 litres, reaching a range of up to 250 nautical miles.
The extensive use of carbon fibre has improved the surface areas within the vessel without resulting deflection and the spaciousness achieved is considered a stand out feature.
Valued at AUD$1.5 million, this luxury flybridge motoryacht accommodates six guests and one crew in this generous space and has free-flowing entertainment areas.
