A brief history of Sunseeker

Back in 1969, in the English seaside town of Poole, Robert Braithwaite dreamt of building a new kind of boat. Using revolutionary materials and technology, his early designs were tailored to a handful of customers, keen to embrace new found freedoms.

Throughout the sixties, Robert worked at Friar’s Cliff Marine, a company that sold various brands including  small boats made by American boat builder Owens Cruisers Inc. Friar’s Cliff Marine became Poole Powerboats in 1969 when it moved into the town of Poole. But then a dramatic turn of events steered the direction of the firm forever.

Back in the USA, Owens Cruisers decided they would no longer distribute their craft to Europe, announcing their decision to close the UK operation down. It was at this point that Robert saw a unique opportunity. With the blessing of others, he raised some cash, drove to Owens’ offices in Arundel, and negotiated a deal to acquire their boat moulds.

Now there was just one problem for Poole Powerboats. The company had never built any kind of seagoing craft before.

The first craft to launch was the Sovereign 17 in 1971, closely followed by the Sovereign 20. By 1972, the company was exhibiting at the Southampton Boat Show and keen to meet new customers. One visitor (none other than Formula One driver, Henry Taylor) loved the boats, but wanted one to accommodate a full width sunbed.

In the 1990s, style became an even bigger factor. With this firmly in mind, Sunseeker began to observe the softer shapes employed within automotive design. This, combined with an awakened desire amongst owners for larger boats, led to the Renegade 60, Sunseeker’s very first production boat with twin jet drives.

In the 2000s, Sunseeker set the pace with the launch of their then-largest ever motoryacht, the 105 Yacht. Advanced composite materials and the latest construction techniques created a true triumph. Continuing apace – literally, with a top speed of 32 knots – the industry’s true innovators had delivered a motoryacht of inspirational design, winning two of the world’s most prestigious accolades in the International Superyacht Design awards.

The meteoric 37M Yacht has since inspired the new 131 Yacht. Then, just fifteen short years after the 105 Yacht’s inception, a truly exceptional milestone. The delivery of Sunseeker’s 100th luxury performance motoryacht in the 100ft+ superyacht category defined the sheer breadth of a range of exceptional yachts, including the flagship 155 Yacht.
