Looking for a luxurious yacht that sleeps eight in four staterooms, plus room for a captain cabin and crew quarters? Iconic, a 2003 Sunseeker 82′, could make the shortlist. Power across the blue at 35 knots, or relax during a jaunt down the coast at 18 knots. Iconic‘s owner is asking $994,900.

Sunseeker stated that “the sophisticated Sunseeker 82 Yacht is built to the most rigorous shipbuilding principles around highly engineered support systems, designed for the most challenging conditions. Besides the performance this promises, and the assurance of extremely comfortable cruising, the 82 Yacht allows owners to take command or accommodate a captain and crew.”

“Sunseeker is an anomaly that draws heavily on European design influences to create yachts such as this Sunseeker 82, the latest iteration of its successful Yacht line. This is a yacht more Italian than British, more Portofino than Poole, more icy Moet than warm Guinness. The Sunseeker 82 Yacht seen on these pages is the first to arrive in the Colonies and, like other Sunseekers in the Yacht line, demonstrates the yard’s ability to satisfy each owner by offering a surprisingly wide range of interior (and exterior) arrangements, equipment and power systems. In this case, the result is a luxurious, voluminous performance yacht that will surely satisfy her owner’s cruising schedule,” as reported in Yachting.

Iconic has a solid 121,000-pound, bluewater-ready displacement, but this yacht can also go. Powered with twin 1,550 hp Caterpillar C30 diesel engines, this Sunseeker 82′ will quickly spool up to 35 knots. Dial it back to an 18-knot comfortable cruise speed and range to just over 300 nautical miles. The Caterpillar engines turn stainless-steel Temet 25 shafts, which are connected to five-blade NAB bronze propellers supported by bronze struts and high-performance bronze rudders.

Owners can entertain up to 20 guests on Iconic within its spacious salon, aft deck, foredeck and flybridge spaces. Access to the flybridge is via a set of steps from the aft deck. Interior steps were omitted to enlarge the salon’s floor plan. The flybridge is open, but has a fold-up canopy that covers the helm. Guests can be seated on cushioned bench-style seats to port and starboard with a large dinette table on the port side, on stools at the aft wet bar or cushioned bench-style seats starboard of the helm. Forward the helm on the starboard side are a couple of sunbathing pads where guests can catch some sunshine with a breeze while cruising. Serve lunch from the BBQ, drinks from the bar and relax in the open-air environment. The helm is to port with a cushioned bench-style seat with room for two. An additional helm station with remote for the engines and hydraulic thrusters make for easy close-quarters maneuvering. The yacht has the following navigation gear and electronics:

  • Sunseeker marine electronics upgrade package
  • Hydraulic power steering
  • Radar/Chart plotter with GPS (x 2 displays)
  • Autopilot
  • Depth and speed displays
  • VHF radios (dual station)
  • Manual compasss
  • Switch panels
  • Trim tab control
  • Rudder-angle indicator
  • Full analogue engine instrumentation
  • Fuel gauge

Iconic’s aft deck is shaded by the flybridge overhang with a forward-facing, bench-style seat with table and chairs on a teak sole. Guests can relax watching a football game, or easily access the swim platform, foredeck and salon. A large swim platform allows guests to easily access the water or sunbathe on the teak deck. Walk around to the foredeck where guests will find a couple of sun pads, cushioned seats and chairs, giving everyone panoramic views.

Enter the salon through a stainless-steel-framed sliding patio door from the aft deck. Windows flanking the salon allow natural light to illuminate the cherry wood interior. Two cream leather sofas, one on each side of the salon, face each other providing a great conversation area for guests. Have a cup of coffee or watch a movie on the “big screen” TV located in the aft entertainment center. Forward from the salon guests will find a cherry dinette table surrounded by eight chairs, which is located to starboard and across from the galley.

The galley is centrally located, allowing owners to easily entertain guests in the salon, aft deck, foredeck and flybridge. A full-sized, stainless-steel refrigerator/freezer provides stowage for cold goods and a number of cabinets, drawers, top-box lockers and slide-out rack provide plenty of stowage for dry goods. There’s also a stainless-steel sink, four-ring ceramic cooktop and microwave oven. Cleanup is made easy with a Slimline dishwasher and a trash bin.  

The forward portion of the deckhouse is devoted to a dual-seat helm station. Engine monitors and electronics are set into a recessed walnut fascia so there is no obstruction to the sightlines through the steeply raked forward windows. Opposite the helm is a double-wide leather companion seat with a cherry wood chart table.

After a long day on the water, owners and guests can retire to one of four staterooms. The master stateroom has a “Master Grand Suite” layout with a double-berth and a private en suite head. There is also a settee, dressing table with mirror and drawers. The en suite head has a granite vanity top and sole, his-and-hers sinks, mirrors and a shower. The VIP stateroom also has a double-berth with stowage underneath stowage, a dressing table with stool, drawers and en suite head. Two more guest staterooms have two single-berths, each with stowage and en suite heads. Iconic has two crew quarters, which consist of three single-berths and could be used for stowage or additional guests, if running the yacht as an owner-operator.  

Where is Iconic located? The yacht is currently lying in Miami Beach, Florida
