Sunseeker designed the 75 Yacht to follow the manufacturer’s popular Manhattan 73 flybridge yacht with an emphasis placed on a spacious salon and flybridge for entertaining. The bow area is one of the most accommodating we’ve seen on a boat in this class.Below decks, she places a premium on privacy with a standard floorplan that offers four staterooms with en suite heads, plus crew quarters. An optional layout eliminates one cabin and enlarges the master quarters.She’s available with engine options up to 3244-hp and standard equipment includes a hydraulic swim platform, redundant electronics at both helm stations, 55” flatscreen TVs in the salon and master stateroom and a 27.5 kW, 60Hz generator.
We’ll work from the top down and the 75 Yacht’s flybridge is accessible from a set of stairs to starboard that close off with a hatch. Ahead to starboard, the wet bar has hot and cold water, a refrigerator, an icemaker, a drop-in cooler and electric grill.To port, there are two large U-shaped seating areas and a folding teak table with a glass inlay. Forward to port, a large flat padded lounge could be a play area for kids or a sun pad for those in search of a tan.
The Upper Helm.
Twin bucket seats at the upper helm let a co-pilot join the captain during a cruise. The flybridge helm is fully-equipped with engine controls and instrumentation, including a rudder position indicator, autopilot controls, a compass and a second station with a radar/chartplotter plus a VHF radio. There are also controls for the 24-volt bow thruster at both helm stations.
The 75 Yacht’s bow area is as accommodating as the flybridge with a bench-style lounge that has shoulder-deep seating aft with a series of cup holders just ahead. For those who want to get more sea spray in the face, there’s a smaller settee up front. Both seats have removable cushions with storage in the base.Additionally, the bow has a supersized sun lounge on the foredeck that can handle at least three or four adults. A windlass comes standard and it hauls in a 110-lb. (50-kg) Delta anchor and 196’ (60 m) of galvanized ½” (12 mm) chain.
Side passageways have stainless-steel rails atop secure-feeling bulwarks that make for easy passage to the 75 Yacht’s stern. The teak-covered swim platform lowers hydraulically and molded steps on each side lead up to the aft deck. There is a stainless-steel ladder and hot and cold shower. The shorepower plug and freshwater connection are also on the transom for ease of deployment.
For security, gates on each side of the cockpit close off the stairs to the swim platform and the aft passenger area sole is finished in teak decking. A lounge spans the width between the stairs. In the transom there is a hatch to access the engine compartment. To port, there is a compact wet bar with an icemaker and a cooler and to starboard are the stairs to the flybridge.
A sliding stainless steel framed glass door opens for entry to the 75 Yacht’s salon. Inside, there’s seating for at least ten people on the lounges plus a coffee table. For entertainment, there’s a 55” flatscreen TV, a Blu-ray/stereo/CD/DVD surround sound system and an iPod dock. Buyers have a choice of interior finishes and veneers.
A single step up leads from the salon to the galley/dinette area, which is on the same level as the lower helm. They galley is to port with an efficient U-shape that provides as much food preparation countertop space as possible in a compact area.
There's a full-sized stainless steel refrigerator at the forward end with two freezer drawers underneath. The cook can prepare meals on a four-burner ceramic stove and in the microwave oven. For cleaning up, there’s a stainless-steel sink and a dishwasher. Two AC outlets allow for plugging in a blender or coffee pot. Across to starboard, the dining area has an outboard bench plus five individual chairs around a table.
To starboard ahead of the dining table, the 75 Yacht’s primary helm has a high-tech feel with the console finished all in black and a touchscreen monitoring panel for primary on board functions.
The boat comes with a GPS chartplotter/radar, autopilot, VHF radio with DSC and electronic speed and depth indicators. The boat comes with trim tabs, a rudder position indicator, a compass and windshield wipers with washers. The steering wheel is to starboard with the electronic controls in comfortable reach. There are two individual captain’s chairs at the helm and a hatch to the starboard deck is outboard.To port, there’s a forward lounge area where passengers have the same forward view as the captain.
By using a circular stairway to descend from the helm deck to the staterooms, Sunseeker provided a clever, space-saving way for passengers to head below decks. At the bottom of the stairs, the owner turns to his/her right and aft into the master stateroom.There is a queen berth with storage drawers in the base plus a walk-in locker. To port there is a walk-in closet. For entertaining, there is a 55” flatscreen TV, plus a CD/DVD player. A fixed settee to port is a place to relax and every boat this size should have one. Against the forward bulkhead is a vanity/desk and stool.
Entry to the Master Head is via a sliding pocket door abaft the berth. It features two sinks, a separate full-sized shower stall and electric head. There’s an opening portal with a mosquito screen plus an extraction fan.
Bow VIP Stateroom.
The VIP cabin on the 75 Yacht is in the bow. It also has a queen berth and a hanging locker, plus a dressing table and a stool. Guests in the bow have a 40” flatscreen TV and stereo with a CD/DVD player. A screened overhead deck hatch opens to let in air and natural light.
The en suite head for the VIP cabin has a single sink and a separate shower stall. Both heads have a mirrored vanity and a 240/110-v outlet for plugging in an electric razor or hair dryer.
Positioned between the master and VIP quarters are the two guest staterooms. The aft cabin to starboard has a double berth with storage drawers in the base and a hanging locker. There’s a 32” flatscreen TV and a stereo with CD/DVD player. Forward to port, the second guest cabin has two single berths with storage below and a hanging locker plus a 22” flatscreen TV and the same stereo system. Each cabin has an opening port with a screen and shade and all the staterooms are air conditioned.
Each guest cabin on the 75 Yacht has its en suite head with a sink, a mirrored vanity, electric toilet, separate shower and extraction fan. There’s a 240/110v outlet and an opening portal with a screen.
With entry from the aft cockpit, the crew quarters have two single berths, plus a hanging locker with a mirrored door, air conditioning and LED overhead lights. The head has a separate shower area and the washer and dryer are in the crew quarters.
