Imported into the U.S. market since the late 1980s, used Sunseeker yachts continue to rank among the most desirable pre-owned luxury yachts in America. Founded in 1969 and manufactured in Poole on the south coast of England, Sunseeker is the largest luxury yacht manufacturer in the United Kingdom. The company employs over 2,400 people and its products are represented worldwide through a network of distributors. With five different yacht models from 48 to 131 feet in length, Sunseeker is one of the world’s most prestigious yacht builders whose name is synonymous with unmatched quality and performance. Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group purchased the company in 2013.
At the heart of Sunseeker’s success has been the company's ability to continually evolve with the times. Sometimes it was a gradual evolution which led to product developments and improvements, but sometimes it was a giant leap forward. The launch of the Predator 80 in the late 1990s was one of those moments. The next significant milestone for Sunseeker was pushing past the 100ft mark enabling Sunseeker to officially claim to be a superyacht builder. The 2001 launch of the 105 Yacht was a landmark event for the company. Not surprisingly, the 105 met with critical and customer acclaim from around the world.
In the five decades that Sunseeker has been building luxury yachts it has evolved from a popular European brand into a worldwide icon. Indeed, to possess a Sunseeker has become an obsession for many. Those fortunate enough to be in the market for a used Sunseeker yacht are choosing to make the ultimate yachting statement. It is their commitment to continual product evolution which ensures Sunseeker remains the number one choice in luxury motor yachts in the world today.
Sunseeker is one of those signature English marque brands such as Rolls-Royce, Jaguar or Bentley which has gained an international following over the years.

Painstakingly handcrafted from bow to stern, it’s this tradition of excellence that makes a used Sunseeker yacht so appealing to the experienced yachtsmen.
