The just concluded Monaco Yacht Show 2023 saw British shipbuilder Sunseeker unveil its newest marvel, the 120 Yacht.
Positioned between the slightly more compact 116 Yacht and the larger 131, the 120 represents a new and refined design for the brand's Superyacht lineup characterized by bolder geometry, a more athletic silhouette, and seemingly limitless functionality.
With its elegant profile, the new yacht combines tradition and innovation, providing the familiar Sunseeker experience with an even more refined aesthetic. Still in concept form, the yacht will have the following to offer.
Upon setting foot on the 120, you are greeted by a full-width rise and fall bathing platform, setting the stage for what lies ahead. Here, a gull-wing door conceals a day head, shower, and storage compartments, while a tender garage provides enough room for a 6-meter tender and two jet skis.
From the bathing platform, stairs on the starboard side ascend to the boat's spacious cockpit. With ample room for up to ten, the aft cockpit features a trio of sofas joined in a c-configuration and dual symmetrical tables centered around a fully equipped wet bar, providing an easily accessible setting for outdoor socialization and relaxation.
As you step into the 120 Yacht's saloon, the full-height glazing immediately captivates, inviting plenty of natural light into the lounge and reaffirming the 120's connection with its surroundings. Crafted by Design Unlimited, the open-plan saloon, just like all interior spaces on the yacht, exudes class with luxurious stone finishes, detailed centerpiece bulkheads, and striking lighting fixtures.
Aft, the saloon is graced with free-standing furniture, including a large sofa, armchairs, and integrated tabletop and shelving units, all surrounding a finely appointed transparent coffee table. Just forward, an exquisite dining table awaits, offering seating for twelve in a sociable setting. The dining and lounging areas are subtly demarcated by framing screens, retaining an airy ambiance while providing a cozy dining and lounging experience.
Further ahead lies the main deck's magnificent master suite, featuring full-height windows, free-standing furniture, a lavish ensuite bathroom with dual wash basins, a large bed, a dressing room with a vanity desk, and plenty of storage space for personal belongings.
Starboard stairs from either the cockpit or foredeck lead to the 120's large flybridge. Equipped with multiple seating, dining, and entertainment layouts, the 120 Yacht's Flybridge is the perfect outdoor spot for any social gatherings aboard. The forward section houses the boat's only helm station, fully equipped with Sunseeker's latest navigation and monitoring gear.
Lower Deck & Foredeck
Descending to the lower deck reveals the Yacht 120's generous guest and crew cabins, enough for eight to ten guests, along with five crew members. The raised foredeck is pretty spacious, too, with plenty of amenities ranging from dedicated zones for sunbathing, dining, and lounging to an optional spa tub.
Engine and Performance
Beyond its luxurious appointments, the Sunseeker 120 Yacht is engineered for performance too. A pair of MTU 12V 2000 M97L engines propel the yacht to a top speed of 20 knots, with an impressive range of 1,730 nautical miles at 10 knots.
While we are yet to see the Sunseeker 120 Yacht in the flesh, based on what we know of Yachts 116 and 131, it's reasonable to anticipate a continuation of Sunseeker's signature blend of majestic elegance and robust performance. With a newer and more refined experience, the 120 Yacht is poised to elevate Sunseeker's superyacht lineup further, setting a new benchmark in luxury seafaring. We’re looking forward to the event where the company unveils the finished product.
