Sunseeker's new flagship tri-deck 155 Yacht is now in build, and the first is due to launch in 2014. With a 4500 nautical mile range, this is the first ever semi-displacement, round bilge and long keel hull from Sunseeker. The 155 Yacht takes the concept of series building with personal customization a step further than others, the modular composite build methodology virtually allowing owners a free hand, not just in the interior but also in the design of the actual superstructure.
Renowned for their style, craftsmanship and attention to detail, each room onboard the 155 Yacht is as impressive as the last. To take a closer look at all the refinements and furnishings on display, click on the images shown.
With a top speed of up to 22 knots the 155 Yacht will accommodate up to 10 guests and 11 crew members.
Design Overview :
The Design specifies a composite, three-deck, motor yacht with twin marine diesel engine propulsion, driving fixed pitch propellers through reversing reduction gearboxes. The GRP foam sandwich hull, deck and superstructure, together with all interior joinery and furniture, shall be designed and built to Superyacht industry standards.
Construction methods shall be immensely durable, using materials of the highest quality. The semi-displacement hull form is the result of extensive tank testing, refined by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. Engine packages may be specified to maximise either speed or efficiency and range. All equipment and fittings shall be selected on the basis of quality, practicality, seaworthiness and durability. During the early stages of specification, it is advised that the Owner/Operator informs Sunseeker of the yacht’s potential operations and where known, the general cruising grounds.

Tank senders will be supplied in all tanks and will be displayed on the vessel monitoring sys-tem (VMS).
Performance figures are based on a clean and serviceable antifoul hull surface and propellers matched for a half load displacement of 295 tonnes with main engines operating at around 98% their nominal rated power - see section 537. Shaft, propellers and underwater appendages shall be free from underwater growth.
Maximum speed will be achieved in calm conditions at half load in UK waters.
Maximum Range quoted below at 10 knots with all tanks full at departure and with one 155 kW generator operating at 65% average load consuming 30 lph:
MTU 12V 4000 Series M73L Power output 2160 kW (2895BHP) at 2050 RPM.
Maximum Speed = 18.0 to 20.0 knots
Range = 4000 Nautical miles at 10 knots
MTU 12V 4000 Series M93L Power output 2580 kW (3460BHP) at 2100 RPM.
Maximum Speed = 20.0 to 22 knots
Range = 4000 Nautical miles at 10 knots
The above values for range and speed are subject to the final customer specification which may have an affect on the vessel displacement. The yachts performance will be recorded by the builder during sea trials in Poole Bay prior to hand-over.
The speeds and ranges are based on conservative predictions from the model tank test in-formation.
Tender Garage Arrangement :
The main tender garage will be a transverse garage arrangement designed to accommodate a diesel engine powered tender with dimensions:
6.5m(L) x 2.65m(B) x 1.35m(H) to be under 1650kgs when fuelled,
Stored transversely with bow on the starboard side and positioned against the aft bulkhead, this arrangement will give a corridor (approx 1000 mm) to access the engine room and for further stowage of water sports equipment.
As a Client option, the garage can be designed and built to store petrol powered.
Please refer to section 748 for further information.
The hull garage door will be top hinged and operated hydraulically and in its closed position the door will be fastened by multiple hydraulic locking pins.
An emergency manually operated closing system will be supplied with the vessel as part of the system in order to satisfy Class and safety requirements.
The tender will be launched and recovered using an overhead crane exiting the starboard side of the hull.
The tender will be supported by a cradle capable of holding the vessel fully laden when stowed

General Arrangement :
The interior design of this yacht promotes the latest Sunseeker International interior styling. The design combines classic and recognisable details to suit individual client tastes. The pri-mary objective is to create a styling specific atmosphere utilizing signature details and mate-rials that best represent true luxury and comfort.
In order to achieve this the design criteria is to accentuate the feeling of space, using light, textural materials and intelligent planning. Ultimately, the interior design considers both the physical needs together with the emotional experience, promoting the feeling of well-being.
The specification of materials and finishes will be to Sunseeker Super Yacht standard and will be consistently incorporated to enhance the quality of the interior design. Each design ele-ment is considered to achieve a seem-less flow within the yacht. For this reason there is con-tinuity in the architectural details designed with the understanding that each customer may have a requirement to personalise the interior. (This can be achieved in the individual selec-tion of soft finishes, accessories and certain lighting elements.)
Generally, all of the interior finishes will be natural. Lacquered timber, hard woods, stone finishes and leather all designed to further accentuate the sensation of luxury.
All of the interior finishes will bear in mind durability, therefore soft finishes on bulkheads will be carefully specified to ensure ease of maintenance and cleaning.
