One unique item that this latest Sunseeker does not share with her siblings is the inclusion of four folding terraces. There are two in the salon, and two in the forward, main deck master stateroom. Sure, there is a "gee whiz" factor, and the Southampton Boat Show was certainly abuzz with chatter about the "flash yacht and her four balconies." However, this design element is far more noteworthy than even the best-crafted press release might suggest. The primary reason we go out on the water, is to be, well, out on the water. I'm always amused by watching people at boat shows go right from the dock, inside to the shelter of a climate-controlled cabin. Some interiors are almost like sensory-deprivation chambers! On the 130, however, the experience of walking from the partially covered aft deck through the double sliding doors is entirely different. Once in the salon, you are greeted by the cross ventilation created by two open terraces, positioned directly across from each other. Granted it was perfect, balmy English weather. But as I walked through, I could smell the salt air, hear the sea gulls protesting overhead, and feel the water lapping up against the hull. The light oak paneling and furniture with an understated matte finish helps to drive these sensations home. The interior isn't loud or flashy, distracting the eyes from the view outside. Your surroundings are the star of the show and the expansive salon extends this sense of openness. A cubed-buffet divides the dining area from the living area. Forward and to port is the functional, commercial-grade galley. By positioning the master on the main deck, this galley is as big as it can be. It's placed to keep the hurried flow of crew away from relaxing guests. A passageway from the galley leads forward and below to the crew quarters with a separate mess, and four double, en suite staterooms. "You have to keep the crew happy," said Sunseeker's Barbara Edney. A full ship's monitoring system allows captain and crew to keep an eye on the 130's vital signs while away from the wheelhouse.
