Sunseeker turned up the heat on the competition in 2005 with the introduction of the Manhattan 50, an executive-class motoryacht with the sleek styling and world-class amenities synonymous with the Sunseeker brand. The market for 50-something yachts is one that Sunseeker knows well, having fielded several Manhattan models in that size range going back to the mid 1990s. With the 50 Manhattan, Sunseeker engineers created a completely modern, dual-helm yacht whose posh accommodations took cruising luxury to the next level. Her spacious interior an eye-popping blend of high-gloss cherry woodwork, leather salon seating and designer galley appliances includes a full-beam amidships master with island berth, forward VIP stateroom with ensuite head, and a second guest stateroom with twin beds. The galley is down, sunken, as it was in most European motoryachts of this vintage. Tiered salon windows offer panoramic outside views, and vertical hull ports flood the master suite with lighting. The large engine room is a plus. Built on a deep-V hull with prop pockets to reduce shaft angles, shell cruise at 2526 knots (30+ knots top) with 800hp MAN diesels.
