Successor to highly popular 52 Manhattan (2008–11), the Sunseeker 53 Manhattan combines versatility and performance with a level of luxury unsurpassed in a motoryacht of its size. Like her predecessor, the 53 Manhattan is a three-stateroom boat with two heads, but without the 52's curvaceous shapes and edges. Instead, the interior of the 53 Manhattan is more space-efficient and features a full dinette on the helm deck, allowing the salon and cockpit to merge effortlessly into a vast entertaining space. The 53's extra hull length can be seen in the second guest stateroom which has full-size berths rather than bunks, and her increased beam is immediately apparent in a much roomier master suite and salon with plenty of light-inviting windows. Gadgets includes a pop-up flat screen television which rises smoothly from the salon sideboard, a superbly equipped galley with no less than 13 cupboards and drawers, and a vast bathing platform (also the main tender stowage) which is hydraulic at the touch of a button. Note the joystick control system, teak decks, and optional crew cabin aft. The two MAN 800hp-diesels cruise at 22–24 knots (about 30 knots top).
