Superyacht builder Sunseeker Yachts builds composite luxury yachts from 12.9 to 47.24 metres in Poole, UK.

History of Sunseeker

Luxury yacht builder Sunseeker Yachts finds its roots in Poole Power Boats, a small shipyard founded by brothers Robert and John Braithwaite in the county of Dorset on the southern coast of the UK. Renamed Sunseeker Yachts, the motor yacht builder collaborated with racing yacht designer Don Shead, who developed Sunseeker Yachts’ signature performance hull. In addition, luxury performance yacht builder Sunseeker adopted innovative propulsion technology such as surface drives and water jets. In the 1980s, luxury yacht builder Sunseeker also began collaborating with renowned yacht interior designer Ken Freivokh to upgrade its yacht interior styling. Luxury yacht builder Sunseeker entered the superyacht market with the launch of its Sunseeker Predator 80 model ion the mid-1990s and, in 2001, with the Sunseeker 105. In 2013, the Wanda Group, owned by Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin, acquired Sunseeker Yachts.
