BBC to air documentary on creating the Sunseeker 131 Yacht on TV this Friday

After ten months of filming at Sunseeker International, the BBC is to air the documentary Britain’s Biggest Superyachts: Chasing Perfection. The programme sees the BBC film crew follow the build of the latest Sunseeker 131 Yacht through to its launch.

Sunseeker says that the film crew has captured some fascinating behind-the-scenes footage to document the journey of the new 131 superyacht from concept to build at the manufacturing facility in Poole, and then through to final delivery. “The 131 Yacht enables its owner to tailor every element of the interior design and layout to their personal preferences via Sunseeker’s unique Bespoke service, which is highlighted in the documentary,” Sunseeker says.

As well as documenting the yacht’s build in Sunseeker’s Dorset shipyards, filming also took place during the boat shows in the latter half of 2015 and at the London Boat Show this year, where the yacht made her debut. You can see here arrival at the London show here.

The documentary airs this Friday, April 15, at 9pm on BBC 2.
