Sunseeker Ocean 182 world debut at FLIBS
The Sunseeker Ocean 182 and Predator 75 will make their world debuts at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which runs from 25 to 29 October 2023. Sunseeker’s 100 Yacht will also make its US debut at the show.
The Ocean 182, 100 Yacht and Predator 75 joins a line-up alongside Sunseeker’s 88 Yacht, Predator 65, Manhattan 55 and Superhawk 55 at Fort Lauderdale.
Sean Robertson, Sunseeker USA president, says: “Visitors to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will have the chance to view the exceptional motor yachts in the Sunseeker range. We are thrilled to present the latest product from our shipyards in Poole, UK. Sharing the spotlight, the Ocean 182 [shown in gallery below], the Predator 75, and the award-winning 100 Yacht will all be available for exclusive viewings. We look forward to welcoming clients and celebrating the arrival of three spectacular yachts into the market for the first time.”
Bryan Braley, OneWater Yacht Group president, adds: “We could not be more excited to present the Sunseeker line-up at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. By far, it is the most impressive display of yachts that we have ever presented at this show and we look forward to the North American debut of three new models.”
Ocean 182 yacht
Sunseeker says its Ocean 182 epitomises the ‘floating penthouse concept’. The yacht has floor-to-ceiling sliding doors on the starboard side and matching windows on the port side to provide uninterrupted views from bow to stern. The unique spiral staircase with minimalist stair treads contributes to an unimpeded view from the inside.
With retractable sliding doors, the upper deck can be fully enclosed to create a third indoor living space or left open to form an al-fresco balcony. The sole helm console on this yacht is situated on the upper deck, which has not been seen on a Sunseeker before. Next to the helm, the L-shaped bar is conveniently located for service with crew or for owner use. The bar has refrigeration, ice maker and a wash basin. Further aft on the starboard side, there is an extension of the saloon with U-shaped seating and a fixed TV unit with ample storage on the port side. Beyond the upper saloon lies an outside space on the upper deck with loose lounge seating and expansive panoramic glazing offering far reaching views out to the horizon.
From its flexible interior spaces to a fully equipped beach club with a hydraulically lifting platform, retractable passerelle, shower, speakers, BBQ grill and the Sunseeker X-Tend convertible seating, the Sunseeker Ocean 182 yacht seamlessly blends sophistication and practicality. With its remarkable performance, innovative features, and exquisite interior, the Ocean 182 sets a new standard in refined and comfortable boating.
Characterised by the sweeping low-profile, the Predator 75 stands confident with the industry-defining sliding sunroof. This innovative feature is designed to completely transform the owner experience as is the cockpit door, which slides to starboard and then the door and window descend beneath the deck, uniting the cockpit with the saloon.
The aft cockpit is designed to be a sociable space with comfortable U-shaped seating complemented by an electrical rise-and-fall carbon fibre table. This flows to a large sunpad over the garage, which features new exterior styling and a storage compartment concealed underneath. The stern enjoys dual steps leading from the bathing platform with easy access to both side decks, and boasts an extra-wide garage capable of accommodating a Williams 395 SportJet. There is another sunpad and well-appointed seating area forward.
Bold interior styling characterises the interior. Contemporary furniture crafted from wood, carbon fibre and stainless steel is illuminated with dimmable mood lighting. The space configuration is fully customisable but in a standard arrangement, the main deck features wrap around seating, a large TV unit and a helm station forward of the sofa with companion seating alongside to port. Owners will enjoy bow-to-stern views and benefit from the oversized carbon fibre framed glazed sunroof above the helm.
The lower deck offers sleeping accommodation for up to eight guests and two crew with three guest cabins. The full-beam master cabin has a dressing table fitted with storage, a chaise lounge and wardrobe space. All cabins benefit from ensuite bathrooms and there is access to a shared day head from the lower hallway. There is also a fully fitted lower galley and dining space while an optional fourth cabin can be specified as required.
The Sunseeker 100 Yacht’s owner’s stateroom, complete with a private bow terrace and sunbathing hideaways is among the many innovative features on board.
The flybridge flows into the foredeck and offers uninterrupted walk-around access – a Sunseeker first. This space offers comfortable U-shaped seating, a wet bar, and space aft for freestanding furniture.
The port side is dedicated to crew access, with direct access from the galley to the flybridge for ease of serving food and drinks, while guests have access to stairs on the starboard side.
The main deck features a penthouse-style saloon and luxurious owner’s stateroom. The floor-to-ceiling glazing allows natural light to flood the saloon, which features a large sofa and a 55in television and stylish dining area. The owner’s stateroom occupies the entire width of the yacht and has access to a bow terrace through a fully-glazed sliding door.
The yacht also offers a beach club, a tender garage that can accommodate a variety of water toys and jet skis, and the X-Tend sunbed.
