4 April 2024

The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht wins three sensational awards at the 62nd Japan International Boat Show. The 65-foot sports yacht first revealed in 2020 received the ‘Best Big Boat’, ‘Best Fun’ and ‘Boat of the Year’ awards at the country’s largest annual showcase for boating.

The racing style design of the Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht’s helm transforms the driving experience. Traditionally helming is a means to an end with the intention of finding a beautiful anchorage. However, with the 65 Sport Yacht, helming becomes central to owning a yacht of this kind - truly offering that ‘wind in the hair’ feeling.

The SkyHelm™ seats two in low-slung Sports seats either side of a carbon fibre central console. This is no ordinary console however, the 65 Sport Yacht features wireless chargers, glass-bridge plotter and retro chrome dials housing LED displays and Volvo Penta integrated pilot system for IPS drives, makes driving and manoeuvring effortless.

The main deck provides a light and sumptuous interior space. The cockpit sliding doors glide effortlessly to reveal a rich interior dominated by the expansive glazing on the port and starboard side. The three-cabin layout provides accommodation for up to six guests. A spacious, full-beam owner’s stateroom includes a generous en suite. Each guest cabin has an en suite, and there is an additional day head below.

An extra-wide tender garage with a fully flush floor allows a Williams 345 jet tender to be carried and launched via the hydraulic rise-and-fall bathing platform, a first for any yacht in this sector. The additional garage space can store SeaBobs, inflatable paddleboards, diving equipment or racking. This exceptional water toys package complements a very well appointed Beach Club with an integrated bar and free-standing seating. The open garage door incorporates twin integrated rain-showers and speakers overhead, perfect for parties in or near the water.

The 65 Sport Yacht cuts an equally impressive figure on the open water with speeds of up to 38 knots courtesy of the Volvo Penta IPS-1200 or IPS-1350 engines providing manoeuvrability, efficiency and dynamic performance.
