The 40m yacht will be the largest model ever to make its debut in London.

Sunseeker International is bringing a behemoth to the London Boat Show.

The new 131 Yacht is the first of three large Sunseeker models set for launch in early 2016, and it will be joined by seven of the builder’s other boats at the illustrious show.

The 131 model’s standard layout sleeps ten passengers in five cabins, although Sunseeker’s bespoke design service allows the yacht to accommodate up to 12, depending on the design selected by the buyer. An onboard garage holds a tender of up to 6.0m in length with room for two personal watercraft. Windows spanning the Master Stateroom, Saloon and Upper Saloon make the boat’s interior bright and relaxed.

Based on the Sunseeker deep V hull design, the large tri-deck 131 Yacht has an extended cruising range of 1,500 nautical miles when operating at 10 knots, and boasts a top speed of 23 knots. Build time for each new 131 Yacht is around one year, and the company has capacity for up to five of the yachts to be under construction simultaneously.

A statement from the company said: “The 131 Yacht really builds on the success of our proven superyacht platform, adding more technical innovation, more advanced features and contemporary layouts that can be tailored in every way to meet the needs of our most discerning customers. The first five of these stunning yachts have already been sold to clients from all over the world, underlining the strong demand and global appeal we’re seeing for this exciting new evolution in design”

The London Boat Show runs from 8th to 17th January 2016 at ExCeL London exhibition centre.

The 10-day event – spread over the equivalent of six full-sized football pitches – will host over 300 marine brands and showcase thousands of products, services and boats from leading British and international companies. Find out more about the London Boat Show 2016 with our guide here.
