    Sunseeker Yachts, formerly known as Poole Powerboats, a British company based in Poole, England, began manufacturing yachts under the Sunseeker name in the 1980’s, although the first boat to carry the name Sunseeker was built in the mid-1970’s. The change in name was ushered in with new hulls and aesthetically over-the-top designs that have instantly ignited interest from the yachting community, as well as new yacht buying customers.

    Today, Sunseeker yachts are built on hulls that have evolved from racing, while utilizing the latest in composite materials and construction techniques. Sunseeker is the recipient of two International Superyacht Design awards, and a multiple-time winner of the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement. A large majority of Sunseeker’s production is exported. There are several models in the Sunseeker fleet, ranging from a 140-foot long yacht down to a 34-foot long high performance yacht.

    Sunseeker employs over 1400 people to build yachts, each highly experienced in their respective fields, from design, to engineering, to manufacturing, sales and distribution. It's a melting pot of creativity and ingenuity - the embodiment of Sunseeker's 'Undiluted Spirit' slogan.
