Following on from the news that Sunseeker International has received its second commission of a 155 Yacht, the team in Poole are celebrating the official British launch of the inaugural yacht.
Formula 1 star and new owner of the first ever 155 Yacht, Eddie Jordan, was joined by Sunseeker International’s Group President, Robert Braithwaite, on Monday 24th March to officially launch this magnificent superyacht, along with the help of stylish vintage swing group, Elle & the Pocket Belles. As the biggest project ever undertaken by Sunseeker, the official launch was a monumental day for all the team.
The Jordan Family Trust worked closely with the Sunseeker team throughout the design process and took full advantage of the bespoke element of the 155 Yacht. From drawing board through to the testing phase every inch of this spectacular yacht was designed and built in Poole, making the launch event all the more special.
Robert Braithwaite, Group President at Sunseeker International, commented: “We were incredibly proud to launch the 155 Yacht here in Poole with Mr Jordan. The 155 Yacht is a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to testing, the yacht was designed and built in Poole, so it really is British through and through and the fact the launch took place in Poole made it all the more special.'
The event went off without a hitch and a special thanks must go to MTU, the title sponsor of the event and engine supply partner on the 155 Yacht. And big thank you to 155 Yacht project sponsors SES, Tijssen Elektro, Tides Marine, BSS, Geberit, Pipex px and DIAB.
