SUNSEEKER WINS BEST FLYBRIDGE OVER 60FT AT 2018 MOTOR BOAT AWARDS
Sunseeker International has won the accolade for ‘Best Flybridge over 60ft’ at the 2018 Motor Boat Awards. The award was given to Sunseeker for its Manhattan 66, which was launched in January 2017 and has already seen over 60 boats sold. Since it was launched at London Boat Show last year it has had an outstanding reception from customers and media alike.
The judging panel made the following comments on presenting the award: “Three excellent boats and very little to separate them, but the winner’s versatility and plethora of layout options separates it from the pack. Proven sales success confirms that with this model the designers have hit the spot.”
On accepting the award, Sean Robertson, Sales Director at Sunseeker International said: “The Manhattan 66 is one of our top selling models since its launch at London Boat Show last year. We are thrilled to have won this award and it underlines our ability to keep giving our customers the best in class across every segment we operate in.”
Sunseeker’s success at the awards was preceded by the announcement that it is an official FIFA Partner for the upcoming World Cup tournament in Russia. Footballing legend, Sir Geoff Hurst, and BT Sport’s Jake Humphrey joined Sunseeker at The London Boat Show yesterday to announce the partnership which is the brand’s largest and most prestigious marketing initiative to-date.
Guests at the show were treated to a further surprise when Sir Geoff Hurst also revealed the replica Jules Rimet Trophy.
The partnership will see Sunseeker to have major marketing and branding rights, the likes of which have never been witnessed in the marine industry before, and will afford Sunseeker clients access to some truly rare ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences.
