Fiberglass, Steel, Sunshine and Wight Vodka

Poole, England

Sunseeker’s affair with Wight Vodka continued into its second year with the wildly successful ‘Open Weekend’ in Poole. Everyone enjoyed Wight Vodka cocktails and canapés at the two day occasion, taking in further attractions on site.

Sunseeker played host to a great event, welcoming existing and prospective Sunseeker owners to their headquarters to experience the world’s finest motor yachts. Sponsored by the leading manufacturer of marine engines, MTU, guests gathered technical specifications on their chosen yachts and were able to view nine boats on display ranging from the XS 2000 for those who thrive on adrenaline, through to the stunning Manhattan 60. Sunseeker were also proud to show off the breathtaking 34 Metre Yacht.

David Lewis, Managing Director of Sunseeker London, commented, “This weekend event was an opportunity to open the Sunseeker boats out to Poole and surrounding areas. We have a fantastic product and it is important for people and the area to see what we do.” David continued “The turn out has been great and we have all been very busy having a fun and relaxed time with our Sunseeker clients and enthusiasts.”

Keri Sanderson, at Sunseeker Poole, said “Our owners absolutely love this event. It marries a unique social and educational scene that is fully appreciated and enjoyed!”

Ritu Manocha, owner of 50° North, the company behind the Wight Vodka brand, said “Yes, we know that the world’s economy is going through a rough patch, but there’s something about the Sunseeker owners that keep them coming back. Perhaps it’s their ‘never give up’ attitude, or perhaps it’s their love of being on the water, but whatever the unique ingredient, we have continued to thoroughly enjoy our Sunseeker partnership!”
