Sunseeker snags two major wins at the World Yachting Trophies for the Ocean 182 and 55 Superhawk
Sunseeker Yachts received two awards at the 2023 World Yachts Trophies for its exceptional design innovation. The Superhawk 55 won ‘Best Exterior Design’ in the 45’ to 64’ category for its dynamic exterior profile and innovative lifestyle features. For its outstanding interior design, the Ocean 182 won the ‘Best Layout’ award in the 80′ to 98′ category. The Ocean 182 launched at Newport International Boat Show and has already received industry-leading recognition for the new floating penthouse concept and intelligent use of interior space.
Best Exterior Design – Superhawk 55
The sensational Sunseeker 55 Superhawk sets a new standard for style, practicality and the ultimate boat owner experience. A sculpted full-beam aft cockpit makes full use of the yacht’s incredible width, benefiting from generous configurable seating and concealed appliances integrated into the feature wet bar and optional rise and fall TV. The central helm transports the occupant of the drivers seat to new heights. Experience the feel of weightlessness with uncompromised panoramic views while helming. Practicality is integral to every Sunseeker. Innovative pantograph doors on the port and starboard side offer protection from the elements, allowing the driver to focus on the horizon ahead. The foredeck is ready to host sunbathers and sundowners with day-to-night usability. A spacious large sun pad slides forward to reveal a table for even more seating, delivering versatility and flexible use of the space.
Best Layout – Ocean 182
The Ocean 182 epitomizes the floating penthouse concept. Those who step on board are immediately met with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors on the starboard side and matching windows on the port side to provide uninterrupted views from bow to stern, connecting guests to the marine environment while enjoying the comforts of the interior. The main deck is a dedicated space for socializing and entertaining, offering 671 square feet of living space with a stunning collection of contemporary loose furniture to fill the space. There is flexibility to choose freestanding furniture that suits the owner’s requirements, from large U-shaped sofas to comfortable lounge seating.
The unique spiral staircase with minimalist stair treads contributes to an unimpeded view from the inside. Forward of the staircase resides the semi-open galley with a pantograph door to the port side deck. Comprehensively equipped with Miele appliances and an option to include additional refrigeration and a 34-bottle wine cooler, the galley offers incredible space and storage. On the starboard side, a generous dining table for eight guests and a bar forward becomes an ideal space for serviced or informal dining.
Offering a contemporary yet timeless interior, the Ocean 182 benefits from a highly customizable interior to suit the owner’s style and taste. The interior, curated in collaboration with Design Unlimited, is characterized by soft neutral tones and a sumptuous blend of textured materials. Every inch of this yacht is finished to an immaculate standard, showcasing recessed ambient mood lighting, stainless steel trim detailing, and specially designed feature bulkheads.
