Eddie Jordan Cracks Champagne on Bow of His New Yacht

Still small by superyacht standards but nevertheless the largest ever launched by Sunseeker, the 47 metre Blush was christened today by her owner.

Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan was joined by Sunseeker International’s Group President, Robert Braithwaite on the dock in Poole and cracked the bottle on this his newest and latest Sunseeker in front of shipyard workers and invited press.

Commissioned by the Jordan Family Trust, the first 155 Yacht has been the subject of endless taboid newspaper stories explaining how many tennis courts she is long and how many double decker busses could be placed end to end on her main deck.

Few have marvelled that this is a British yacht, designed in Britain, built in Britain, registered in Britain and crewed by a mostly British crew!
On this occasion Sunseeker has taken the concept of series building with personal customisation one step further with a modular build methodology, which enables the owners to have direct input not only into the interior design and layout but the actual superstructure of the yacht.
It also boasts impressive accommodation for up to 12 guests in ultimate style and luxury, while the forward lower deck area can accommodate up to 10 crew, with a separate captain’s cabin. 
Beyond the impressive statistics it is the contemporary interior and exterior design which makes her stand out from the crowd.

Hull number one has a completely painted exterior, featuring an ice blue hull, while her interior, by Sallyanne Holmes features an exclusive design palette which highlights grey, blue, green and an overall chic aqua feel.
Two VIP cabins are located on the main deck and both feature ceiling to floor glass windows creating a dramatic feeling of light and space, as well as spectacular views.
A formal dining area with side patio doors, balconies for uninterrupted sea views whilst dining and a fully equipped commercial galley are located aft of them.
While the spacious and stylish private accommodation is clearly one of the most appealing features of Sunseeker’s flagship yacht, it is the expanse of entertainment space which makes it truly stand out.

The upper deck alone features a huge sky lounge, which can be dedicated to private entertainment.
Robert Braithwaite, Group President at Sunseeker International, commented:

“We have created a truly iconic British yacht. From drawing board through to build and testing all taking place in Poole, the 155 Yacht is British through and through, so we are incredibly proud to launch it here in Poole with Mr Jordan.
