London Boat Show 2015: two Sunseeker yachts worthy of US waters

This 61st edition of the London Boat show held a particular attraction for us. After all, Rick Obey & Associates are the official representatives and distributors of Sunseeker Yachts for California and West Coast Territory. Yacht aficionados - including us - flocked to London in no small measure to see two vessels in particular: a newly minted and highly anticipated Predator 57 and the 28 meter Sunseeker that stubbornly refuses to be eclipsed.

Predator 57 debut was a treat but only after visiting the yacht one can appreciate it. An absolutely splendid addition to the Predator family. We can’t wait to feel how it handles the Pacific when we bring it to California or, for that matter, the waters along Florida’s coast. Before we have the chance to do that, for those of you that were not able to attend we post several photos Rick Obey took throughout this sleeping beauty.

Everywhere you look you see... precision; precision of design, precision in the choice of materials, precision in ergonomics and precision in manufacturing. Perhaps nothing draws the eye so much as the this spacious and cleverly arranged main deck. You can see on the left a picture toward the cockpit (notice the superb sliding doors on the right) and on the right a picture toward the aft section (there is no way not to fall in love with the windows).

A very comfortable cockpit with information on hand and a great design of the controls, as you can see from the left hand picture. On the right, a view showing the forward sunpads, cockpit and the flybridge.

Visiting the Sunseeker 28 meter yacht, even after seeing it before, is never a letdown for anyone stepping aboard. Judge for yourselves. Sunseeker 28 meter aft view (left photo), the balcony and the patio doors (right-hand photo) are just some of the memorable features that really drive home the reason why this model is so successful worldwide. No doubt about it: Sunseeker West Coast will prove to be a welcoming home for this lady!

We are thoroughly enjoying our time here in London, even if the weather is of course nothing compared to what we left home. This beautiful yacht would feel more natural on the water and sky would definitely feel at home through it’s full height windows.

Not to worry though, there is the upcoming Miami Boat Show to supplement all that a month from now!
