When we saw the Sunseeker Manhattan 66 at the recent Dussseldorf Boat Show, we couldn't resist a closer look. The Manhattan 66 is designed to replace the Sunseeker Manhattan 65. The new model is both beamier and taller than the 65 it is replacing, and, remarkably, cheaper too.

In tandem with huge glazing sections, its increased volume means excellent views out, great light and it also results in two metre headroom throughout the main deck.

Take a look around the boat with our reviewer Alex Smith the First Look Video below.


Below decks, the full-beam master cabin is equipped with its own private staircase. That's a first for Sunseeker in this size bracket. Then up front with the standard layout, there are three cabins. You can spec the galley down below in place of one of those cabins, but in this standard four-cabin layout the boat seems to work very well indeed.

When you factor in the foredeck and the huge flydeck, the seating capacity on the Sunseeker Manhattan 66 is really remarkable. What's even more remarkable is that with its new manufacturing facility for the Manhattan series, this boat comes in at £1.5 million, and that's £100,000 cheaper than the Manhattan 65.
