SUCCESSOR to the top-selling Azimut 62 Flybridge, the Azimut 64 Flybridge took Italian styling and luxury to the next level when she was introduced in 2011. The flybridge and cockpit are among the largest in this class, and the squarish bow protects the deck and sun pad from sea-spray while cruising. On the main deck, the salon is flooded with natural light through large windows. A posh U-shaped sofa to port in the salon seats six, and a long cabinet to starboard houses an entertainment center. Two steps separate the salon from the galley and dining areas. Unlike earlier Azimut yachts, the galley is completely open to the dinette and salon. The helm has been moved from a central position to starboard which permits an atrium on the port side while also allowing more light down into the living area. There are three staterooms and three heads below. The full-beam master is amidships and features an offset queen bed, two-seat dinette, and panoramic views from port and starboard hull windows. The VIP stateroom has an island bed, and the second guest stateroom has two single beds convertible to a queen. Two-person crew quarters are aft. Caterpillar 1150hp C18 diesels cruise at 26–28 knots (30+ knots top).

"Not only is the yacht remarkably well balanced underway, and pretty damn quick, but the marriage of the Cats’ considerable torque to a pair of perfectly pitched propellers produce a boat with quite extraordinary acceleration and poise, right through the rev range."

–Power and Motoryacht


"Beauty, powerful engines, cruising elegance, stability at anchor and the option to choose between two layouts for the saloon... there are numerous excellent reasons that can lead to choosing the Azimut 64.Tthese distinctive elements place the 64 at the top of its category."

"Stylish, fast and luxurious, the Sunseeker Manhattan 63 is built with maximum attention to every detail."

–TopSpeed.com


"The Manhattan 63 is a fabulous piece of British engineering and style from Sunseeker, but it's the handling that's mind blowing thanks to the latest generation three, twin 1200hp Volvo Penta IPS pod-drive engines below."

–TradeBoats Australia


"Sunseeker’s new Manhattan 66 works on pretty much every level. As an example of the strength of modern motoryacht design, it can hold its head up with the best."

–Power & Motoryacht


"When you factor in the foredeck and the huge flydeck, the seating capacity on the Sunseeker Manhattan 66 is really remarkable."

INTRODUCED in 2012, the Sunseeker Manhattan 63 embodied innovation, luxury, and performance on a grand scale. She also features an interesting design development—the underwater sections were configured to allow for conventional shaft drives or Volvo Penta IPS pod drives. Accommodating up to eight overnight guests in four staterooms (two with queen beds, two with twins), the spacious salon of the 63 Manhattan includes a separate dining area in addition to leather U-shaped seating, full-service galley with Avonite countertops, Bose entertainment center, and satin-finished cherrywood cabinets. The amidships master features large hullside windows, and a transom hatch provides access to the crew quarters aft. Topside, Manhattan 63 boasts a spacious flybridge with twin helm seats, wet bar, forward sun lounge, and seating for 8 to 10 guests. Additional features include an aft deck settee, teak hydraulic swim platform, and teak decks. MAN 1200hp engines cruise at 25–26 knots (low 30s top). Those Manhattan 63s equipped with Volvo 900hp IPS pod drives (23 knots cruise/30+ top) carry less fuel (776 gallons) and have greater draft than standard shaft-drive models.
