The Sunseeker 90 Ocean won best ‘Custom Yacht’ at the 2023 Motorboat Awards held during 2023 boot Düsseldorf. The annual awards aim to celebrate the very best that the leisure boating industry has to offer, recognising excellence in design, innovation and performance.
Hugo Andreae, Editor-in-Chief at Motor Boat & Yachting, wrote: “The Sunseeker 90 Ocean has it all: acres of versatile deck spaces packed with innovative solutions like the X-TEND seating; an intimate connection with the sea thanks to the vast sea-level beach club, glass transoms and bulwarks; masses of storage space for tenders, water toys and cruising gear; a wonderfully luxurious interior that makes full use of the unusually wide beam; and a hull that feels very nearly as agile and sea-kindly as some of its overtly sportier siblings.
“The fact that this all fits comfortably into a craft with an LOA of 89ft is all the more remarkable, enabling it to offer the same space and luxury as much longer boats but without the associated running costs.
However, the biggest achievement of all is that despite its extra beam and volume and a brand-new hull shape, it still manages to look, feel and drive like a true Sunseeker.”
The 90 Ocean is a spectacular yacht that boasts a 20% increase in overall volume and 25% more deck space than a comparable yacht; thanks not only to her substantial beam but her upright stem that creates a brand new Sunseeker silhouette cutting through the water.
The exterior lines of this yacht are revolutionary, allowing the ‘Beach Club’ to become an even more impressive space. This spacious deck, measuring over 6m x 4m, is perfect for family and friends to socialise close to the water. The ‘Beach Club’ features the Sunseeker X-TEND sunbed, an industry-defining feature unique to Sunseeker yachts in the 80ft plus segment. Sunseeker considers the usability of features on board in meticulous detail, allowing an effortless user interface and a stunning aesthetic feature.
Full-height glazing on the main deck and a move toward more freestanding furniture allowed Sunseeker to create a different interior feel for the 90 Ocean whilst maintaining a consistency of language in terms of material selection and an approach to luxurious practicality.
The award adds to the series of accolades the 90 Ocean has already achieved including a World Yachts Trophies Award and BOAT International Design & Innovation Award. Sunseeker also received a nomination for the Predator 65 in the Sportscruisers over 45ft category.
Sunseeker 90 Ocean is a great achievement for the luxury boating brand and all the hardworking teams behind this groundbreaking yacht model.
