90 Ocean - Sunseeker's new direction


Another from Sunseeker’s 2021 fleet, the Sunseeker 90 Ocean introduces a new approach from the British company that promises larger spaces, more premium interiors, and lots of outdoor spaces.

From afar, it’s immediately apparent that the 90 Ocean’s design is a major departure from some of Sunseeker’s previous offerings. The significantly wider beam together with the upright bow not only gives the boat a more distinct profile but also offers more space on its inside.

With a 20% increase in overall volume and up to 30% more deck space, one wouldn’t be blamed for mistaking this for a 100-foot yacht as it easily trumps its 90-foot competitors with its vast decks.

Exterior

Measuring 6 meters long and 4 meters wide, the 90 Ocean’s beach club gives guests the perfect introduction of what to expect aboard. A duo of “X-TEND” sun pads mounted on the boat’s hatch are all the rage. In their natural lowered position, the sun pads face aft, but with the flick of a switch, the owner can raise them to point towards the forward cockpit, simultaneously adding more seats and space to the area. A large barbeque with a countertop and an “oversized” rain shower also feature for good measure.

A dedicated locker underneath the beach club provides ample storage for a jet ski, a Williams 460 Sport Jet, and a pair of sea bobs. Two LED-lit steps guide you to the aft cockpit. Here, two Fischer Mobil seats are fitted with matching teak coffee tables, while a fully equipped wet bar comes integrated with a fridge, ice maker, and a stainless-steel sink.

A walk forward to the bow area reveals a rather spacious foredeck where a trio of sofas surrounds a large central sun pad with electronically adjustable backrests. As an option, the foredeck is transformable into an open-air cinema with a 140-inch screen and laser projector.

Flybridge

A set of teak and stainless-steel stairs ascend to the flybridge from the cockpit. Impressive in size, the flybridge gives the impression of a much larger yacht. You’d be hard-pressed to tell if you’re on a 100-footer if you weren’t aware of the 90 Ocean’s actual dimensions.

Aft, 360-degree seating comes as the standard option. We suspect, however, many will be more interested in fitting the area with the optional extras. These include an infinity-style spa pool, a large dining table for six, a fully equipped wet bar, and an auxiliary helm station.

Interior

The Ocean 90’s interior finish combines traditional elegance and contemporary distinction, providing spaces that feel neat and clean but also timeless in design. Measuring an exceptional 8.8m in length and 5.6m in width, the Ocean 90’s saloon merges style with function. Buyers have plenty of layout options to select from, with a series of modular lounge seats and a host of amenities all available.

A dining area for eight, an apartment-style galley, a 65-inch QLED TV with customizable art, and an L-shaped sofa make it to the standard configuration. Perimeter LED lighting and lacquered inner deckhead panels give a futuristic vibe to the lounge, while floor-to-ceiling windows ensure enough natural light fills the area.

The main helm station sits in the forward right corner of the lounge and optionally comes with a panoramic skylight and electric blinds. From the lounge, spiral wooden stairs bunked by a wooden feature wall descend to the owner’s suite. Here owners will find a super king slatted bed, sofa, vanity desk, textured paneling, full-width bulkhead mirror with a television, and an ensuite bathroom with a floating vanity unit.

The VIP guest room sits in the bow, while two twin cabins sit in the aft. An optional fifth cabin is available in place of the standard master suite for the charter market. The 90 Ocean can accommodate up to 10 guests.

Engines

The 90 Ocean comes equipped with MAN engines producing up to 3,800 horsepower giving the yacht a top speed of 26 knots. When cruising at 12 knots, Sunseekers states the 90 Ocean’s range is 1,800 nautical miles.

Perhaps an indication of what Sunseeker’s larger yachts of the future will be like, the Sunseeker 90 Ocean represents a refresh from the company. And if this yacht is anything to go by, this direction change will only cement the British company’s reputation as one of the very best yacht makers.
