The Manhattan 63 wins at the 2012 Motorboat Of The Year Awards
Sunseeker International was delighted to pick up an award at the 2012 annual Motor Boat of the Year Awards, held in the prestigious Savoy Hotel. The Sunseeker Manhattan 63 took the award for 'Best Boat' in the Flybridge above 55ft category.
The judges' panel, consisting of experts from both Motor Boat & Yachting and Motor Boats Monthly magazines, chose nine boats to receive one of the coveted trophies.
The Manhattan 63 is a perfect example of a boat that packs innovation, luxury and performance into an exceptionally graceful frame. The hull form has been designed to take a more traditional shaft option but also includes the option of IPS drives - the latter produces fantastic results in performance, handling and economy. Interior options offer upper deck or lower deck galley, three or four staterooms with a midships full-beam master and very large hull-side windows. The saloon and entertainment space is fantastic and panoramic superstructure windows ensure a feeling of openness, a prefect boat for family and friends to enjoy.
The awards were presented by Carl Richardson and Hugo Andreae, who commented "The standard of competition at this level is so high that choosing a winner is a bit like asking a parent to pick their favourite child. All of these boats delivered an exceptional degree of quality, luxury and style but one boat managed to do all this while painting such a broad grin on the helmsman's face that it seemed to defy the laws of physics. Our winner is the Sunseeker Manhattan 63."
