The best launches from the show
By Frances & Michael Howorth
What is it? It has been three years since the first Sunseeker 34M Jiva (ex-La Volpe) debuted. Fifteen in the series have now been built and Piccolo, launched this year, is one of the latest examples.
Why is it so special? Space, style and design are the trademarks of this world-famous British brand, which has grown in four decades from cabin cruisers and cutting-edge sportscruiser to superyachts. Her interior, with five ensuite cabins, is finished in American walnut satin. Additional features include an opening hardtop, zero-speed stabilisation and custom tenders and a garage area.
Look out for: The master suite set on two levels, including a private lounge and separate sleeping area.
Would appeal to: Those looking for the comforts of a larger yacht with the range and speed of a semi-displacement. You can also rely on Sunseeker’s worldwide network for service and support.
Data Year: 2011. LOA: 33.9m. Range: 440nm @ 22 knots. Exterior: Sunseeker/Don Shead. Interior: Sunseeker. Guests: 12. Cabins: 5. Crew: 6.
