SUNSEEKER ANNOUNCES LINE-UP FOR SALONE NAUTICO VENEZIA 2023
As one of the most prestigious boat shows in Italy, the event will showcase the latest Sunseeker yachts. The Superhawk 55 will debut at the show, experiencing the second part of a European tour. Alongside the Superhawk, two yachts from the most enduringly popular Sunseeker Manhattan range will be available to view in both 55 and 68 feet variants.
The Venice Boat Show will take place at the Arsenale, a historic complex of shipyards and warehouses that once served as the heart of Venice's naval power. The Arsenale is a fitting venue for the boat show, as it has been an important center of maritime activity for centuries.
Andrea Frabetti, Chief Executive Officer at Sunseeker International, commented:
“We are excited to exhibit for a second year at Salone Nautico Venezia. This important show will become a stage for us to present the Superhawk 55 in Northern Italy and the Adriatic. We anticipate a lot of excitement around this model in particular, which will look fantastic against the Arsenale of Venezia’s dramatic facade. All three yachts on display will showcase the beautiful finish and exceptional quality found in a Sunseeker, a true representation of our passion as the leading luxury performance motor yacht brand.”
Christopher Head, Sunseeker London Group Director, added:
“Sunseeker Italy is thrilled to exhibit at Venice Boat Show, a unique show set in the beautiful floating city. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Sunseeker stand, where a trio of yachts will represent the beautiful range of yachts available in the Group.”
