Sunseeker Thailand have taken delivery in Singapore of the all new majestic 73 Manhattan Flybridge Yacht.  Pre-delivery inspections have now been carried out and the boat is soon to be delivered to Phuket in Thailand.

The Manhattan 73 is defined by its ingenious use of space.  The vessel enjoys increased volume not just by length but courtesy of the broad beam that’s carried lower in the hull.  It has 3 double cabins and a twin and very generous crew accommodation too.

Upfront the Manhattan 73 boasts a fantastic foredeck and pulpit seating and sunpad area for relaxing in the sun.

This boat will also be the first boat of its class in Asia with Joystick manoevering system, which dramatically simplifies docking.  In addition, a Seakeeper 8000 Series stabilser system is installed for extra comfort onboard in rough seas.

‘Michaela’ will set out on her maiden voyage next week once the formalities in Singapore are complete with the owner joining Iain Davie, Sales & Service Manager at Sunseeker Thailand and the Thai Captain onboard.

“We will leave One degree 15 in Singapore and set sail for Port Dickson, Pangkor and Langkawi prior to arriving in Royal Phuket Marina next weekend.” Said Iain.

‘Michaela’ will arrive in Phuket as the first Manhattan 73 in Thailand, however she will accompany the existing fleet of smaller Sunseeker Flybridge Yachts.

We look forward to her arrival!

New Images of the New Sunseeker Manhattan 53

August 23, 2011 0 Comments Blog by Administrator

The all new Sunseeker 53 Manhattan model will be launched at the 2011 Southampton Boatshow in September and Sunseeker Thailand will be there.  The first photographs have now been released by the factory prior to the show.

The launch of this elegant and stylish new flybridge yacht has been eagerly anticipated by distributors and buyers alike throughout the world.  Indeed, Sunseeker Thailand has two confirmed orders which will be arriving in Phuket either side of Christmas.

Both inside and out the Manhattan 53 has far more space than its predecessor and has a stunning new flybridge layout.  In addition, with its well proportioned beam, she offers three generous cabins below, with a huge beam to beam owner’s stateroom.

In addition, the stepped saloon and helm position offer excellent, panoramic views with relaxed, spacious entertaining areas.

The Manhattan 53 may now be the smallest Sunseeker in the Flybridge production line, but she is no less a performer or provider of that.

Anyone wishing to view the Manhattan 53 at the Southampton Boatshow, please contact; Craig Murphy, MD, Sunseeker Thailand, craig@sunseekerthailand.com











Max Marine Asia check out new boat lift-out facility

August 13, 2011 0 Comments Blog by Administrator

Max-Marine Asia recently tested out the new Roodberg boat lift trailer which is available at Ao Po Grand Marina in Phuket.

The owner of a new 8 metre Aus Thai Marine Catamaran required an engine service, and in just 35 minutes the boat was lifted out of the water, both outboard engines were serviced and the boat was returned back into the water without a problem.

Paul Stamp, from Max-Marine Asia said “the Roodberg trailer is perfect when there is no travel lift facility.  The Marina Manager, Derek Van Deventer and his staff offer a very quick and efficient service for surveys and engine servicing.”

“Max-Marine Asia and Sunseeker Thailand have used the Roodberg to lift out much bigger boats than this one too.  It took out a Sunseeker Portofino 47 easily too recently, and as can be seen by the full new hard stand area, the Roodberg lift trailer is lifting some very large power boats and sail boats.”

Hopefully many more Max-Marine Asia clients with their boats in Ao Po Grand Marina will take advantage of this great piece of equipment.

Sunseeker Thailand can announce that the 2012 International Boat Show in Phuket, PIMEX, has been moved from its historical, early January slot to a new range of dates at the end of March. Moving the show away from the Christmas, New Year peak season will allow the major marquees and dealers in Phuket, including Sunseeker Thailand, to show many more of the new models.
The PIMEX boat Show in Phuket will now be held from the 29th March 2012 to the 1st April 2012. Moving it from the early January, peak season slot will allow a lot more boats to be available for display. The growing success of the marine industry in Phuket, as the incredible cruising grounds and modern, secure infrastructure become more widely known, has created a demand for new boats surpassing many areas in the Med.
"The arrival of so many new boats in the last 12 months plus the 4 new arrivals due before Christmas, will keep us and the boats so busy during the peak, Christmas, New Year season that we just cannot provide the resources the show deserves. Moving the show to the end of March will give us the time, and boats required for putting on a fantastic show. It is a very welcome change indeed" stated Craig Murphy, MD.

“The boat is great”, Stuart said, “It’s the best boat I’ve had to date!”

“Yesterday, we had 10 adults on board with two teenagers and two younger kids, and the boat handled superbly; cruising at 25 knots without a problem.”

The Austhai Boomerang 8000 Funcat, sold in Phuket by Max-Marine Asia, has a top speed of 40 knots with its twin Suzuki 175hp engines.

Stuart added, “The handling of the boat is sensational.  My previous boats just could not handle the sea conditions here in Phuket; you had to slow down!   My new boat just cuts through the choppy waters at speed; it’s great!”

Sunseeker sponsored Nicky wins IronKids Event

May 15, 2011 0 Comments Blog by Administrator

April saw the inaugural Ironkids event held in Phuket at The Thanyapura Sports & Leisure Club at The Phuket International Academy (PIA), and saw 113 kids taking part.

The mission of the event is to inspire, motivate and develop young people into leading an active and healthy lifestyle through participation in sport and recreation.

Sunseeker Thailand/Asia, along with a number of other local companies, took the opportunity to sponsor a participant of the Boys Senior event; Nicky Murphy, who is a pupil at PIA on a football scholarship programme.  C&C Marine, Hull-Suzuki Marine, The Expat Hotel-Patong and KiteSurf were among other sponsors for Nicky too.

The event saw the participants compete over a 300m swim, then a 12km bike ride followed by a 3m run.  After finishing the swim in 2nd place, Nicky came out of the 1st transition section leading the event and never looked back from then on.

Nicky won the event comfortably in the end and was awarded his medal by Jurgen Zack, 8 times World Champion of Ironman and Thailand’s Minister for Sport.

Well done to Nicky Murphy.
