Sunseeker new Manhattan 52

The new Manhattan 52 will get its UK debut at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.

It is Sunseeker International’s smallest flybridge model, and is designed to maximise entertainment options, light and living space.

Its hull incorporates unparalleled amounts of curved glass to emphasise its sleek lines as well as bringing the outside in.

The 52 will set the design direction for a new wave of Manhattan models that will be introduced over the coming years.

Sunseeker International will unveil its smallest flybridge model, the Manhattan 52, at the 2016 Southampton Boat Show in September.

Sunseeker 155 Yacht Blush

From its facilities in Poole on the south coast of Britain, the second hull of the Sunseeker 155 – the current flagship of the large Sunseeker International fleet – is due to be delivered to its Owner in summer next year. With a completely different interior layout and interior design from the first hull, this yacht, currently under construction, was commissioned in spring last year at the Dubai Boat Show.

“This latest commission just goes to show the level of enquiry from this ever growing international show,” commented Sean Robertson, Sales Director at Sunseeker International, at the time. He emphasised Sunseeker’s success at this major international boat show in impacting the market with the acquisition of the prestigious contract:

“We are absolutely delighted to have sold another 155 Yacht. The 155 Yacht’s intricate design and build process allows for customisation of the highest level and as each yacht is so individual and unique it makes the build ever more exciting. The team back in Poole can’t wait to start work on this and are eager to create something truly bespoke.”

That spring, the Poole facilities also saw the solemn celebration of the launch of the first Sunseeker 155 Yacht, to date the largest yacht built by Sunseeker International.

The impressive event to celebrate the launch and delivery to the vessel’s Owner, Formula 1 tycoon Eddie Jordan, in the company of the Group President at Sunseeker International, Robert Braithwaite, was a fitting event for the scale of the yacht.

After months and months of hard work for the engineers and designers who completed every phase of the project from concept to construction entirely in-house, Robert Braithwaite expressed his own great satisfaction and that of the shipyard’s entire team:

“We were incredibly proud to launch the 155 Yacht here in Poole with Mr Jordan. The 155 Yacht is a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to testing, the yacht was designed and built in Poole, so it really is British through and through and the fact the launch took place in Poole made it all the more special.”

Elegant Dayboat

A new corporate hospitality company
was launched to offer clients a range of packages,
including a taste of dayboat racing in a fleet of
matched Redwings.
What happened to Redwing Racing?

The Redwing is an elegant dayboat, designed in 1896 by
Charles Nicholson. The class was originally raced at
Bembridge Sailing Club on the Isle of Wight. Now one
of the oldest keelboat classes still sailing in the
United Kingdom, the Redwing remains one of the most
popular Cowes Week fleets.

Redwing Racing is based in Poole, Dorset. The company
purchased 13 of the 20 boats built by Camper &
Nicholsons between 1938-46 and the fleet, built of
mahogany, rock elm and oak, is currently being
refurbished by craftsmen using traditional methods and
modern materials.

In addition to dayboat racing, Redwing Racing offers a
range of standard hospitality days, including
incentive and reward days, conference breaks, regattas
and team-building events. While participation is
encouraged at all levels, skippers are available for
those who feel less certain of their abilities.

The company is owned and operated by Peter Kemsley,
who has many years’ senior level management experience
in industry. He is also qualified in leisure business
management and holds RYA certification in a number of
disciplines.

“The Redwing is a fabulous boat to sail and,
following completion of the restoration work, we will
seek to do justice to the integrity and provenance of
the Redwing name – without eliminating the fun and
excitement of such a unique sailing experience,”
said Kemsley.

The Chipping of Goods Initiative

The United Kingdom launched a new initiative against the organized trade in stolen goods, including boats in 2001. What happened to this good cause for boat owners and the marine trades?

The Chipping of Goods Initiative will use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in a silicon chip implanted in consumer goods — including boats — that will reveal the origin and ownership of the product, government officials said.

The move is welcomed by the British Marine Industries Federation (BMIF), which will use funds provided by the government under the initiative to re-launch its flagging Boatmark scheme.

Boatmark was set up in 1995 as a joint venture between the BMIF and Equifax HPI, a specialist in secure and confidential registration and identification schemes.

The scheme was endorsed by the British government and had the backing of all UK marine police forces. It also won the support of major finance and insurance companies operating in the marine industry and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).

However, the scheme did not reach its target number of craft, mainly due to the registration cost to builders.

The funds from the Chipping of Goods Initiative will enable the scheme to be promoted at no cost to the industry. This will, said BMIF executive director Howard Pridding, allow the database to be expanded to reach the critical mass numbers where it becomes a viable and valuable proposition.

“Boatmark will be relaunched to the industry in about a month’s time,” said Pridding. “We have some things to tie up with HPI before then.”
