Two Sunseeker Manhattan 63s on a Sunday Cruise

August 13, 2011 0 Comments Blog by Administrator

Sunseeker Thailand’s Iain Davie enjoyed an amazing day as two of Sunseeker Thailand’s newest boats, both Sunseeker Manhattan 63’s, joined together for a cruise last Sunday.  

The sight of two brand new Sunseeker Manhattan 63’s cruising gently south in formation drew a fair few glances from the local fishermen and yacht owners alike. Dropping anchor off one of the many tropical islands had the crews busy launching the tenders and of course, the water toys. It was not long before we were all splashing around between the Sunseeker yachts, the islands beach and yes, the many toys.

Lunch was served on one boat, leaving the other free for the crews to relax in peace and quiet, until it was decided that afternoon drinks would be better served after a quick blast North. Up came the anchors and off we went. Now, if the sight of two Sunseeker Manhattan 63’s cruising south in majestic formation caught the eye, the 32 knot, side by side, blast North caused more than a few heads to turn.

Arrival off a deserted island in the beautiful Phang Nga Bay led the two owners to decide that rafting the two 70 foot Sunseeker Manhattan’s together would, in effect, combine drinks fridge capacity which offered a greater quantity and selection of beverages to their guests. Rafting two identical Sunseeker Yachts together allowed perfect alignment of both hydraulic swimming platforms making it easy to transverse between fridges, keeping the aft decks busy and allowing the crews to compare notes at the bow.

Heading back to Ao Po Marina as the sun set was just the most perfect end to a great day with both Sunseeker Manhattan 63’s entering the Marina and tying up just before dark.
