Rhine is a 40m tri-deck superyacht built by one of the most famous yachting brands. Rhine is a Sunseeker 131 and this iconic design is instantly recognisable the whole world over.
Owning a Sunseeker has been likened to joining a private members club; distinguished yet unashamedly ostentatious. Sunseeker, as a company, has a reputation for innovation blended with old fashioned values, and this Sunseeker 131 has been expertly finished using ultra-modern techniques and materials.
Rhine was launched in 2012 and was originally built for an Asian owner who wanted the ability to host large numbers of guests and the versatility to entertain both family members and business associates on board. As a result, the configuration features expansive social spaces yet retains several areas that have a more cosy and intimate design.
The sheer scale offered in the exterior and interior design is really the main selling point of this motor yacht. Unlike other 40m vessels, Rhine offers a sky lounge featuring a cocktail bar with access out onto the sun deck, and both the upper and lower decks have comfortable lounge-style seating as well as al fresco dining areas.
Both of Rhine’s aft decks are partially covered, and the sun deck has a retractable awning for optional shade.
Rhine’s interior layout offers accommodation for eight guests in four luxurious suites. There’s a full beam master suite and a VIP double, which have their own mini bar and fridge, and two guest cabins (both en suite) that are convertible between double or twin configuration.
The room behind the helm station, which would normally serve as a Captain’s cabin, has been customised and converted into a private office space for the owner.
Great care and attention was taken when sourcing the interior furnishings and materials, with no expense spared on any of the features. The decor is modern with oriental flourishes, and the soft furnishings are complemented by high gloss Sapele wood and Emperador marble.
Rhine carries her tender and toys in an aft garage and boasts a 6.2m Pascoe tender for ensuring a speedy yet stylish transfer between the boat and the shore.
The 40m Sunseeker 131 has proven itself on a global scale as both a successful charter yacht and a vessel for private use. Rhine is presented for sale in immaculate condition, having had just one owner since new, and is an exciting opportunity to acquire an as-new Sunseeker in turnkey condition.
