Sunseeker has used the occasion of the Boot Dusseldorf boat show to announce a new superyacht concept called Project 8X.

While the specific length of the yacht has not yet been disclosed, the British yard said it would measure between 80 and 90 metres.

The 8X will “showcase the fresh design direction of Sunseeker’s next generation of larger models,” the yard said.

Embodying the “feel of a true superyacht,” Project 8X will be “fundamentally different from the current Sunseeker range,” the yard said.

The news comes after the Poole based yard revealed it had teamed up with Icon Yachts on its first metal built superyacht, the Sunseeker 161, which will launch in spring 2021.

Launching in 2020, Project 8X will feature “striking lines” and an open plan interior.
