The Sunseeker Story

The story begins in the early 1970s on the British south coast in Poole where the early Sunseeker team, then known as Poole Power Boats, started moulding and fitting out boats from a small manufacturing facility. Business was good but it wasn’t until a chance meeting with an Englishman selling boats in the South of France that all this changed.

The sea, deep beauty and greatness

The sea has been object of artistic recreation and matter of inspiration for writers, musicians, painters, philosophers… “The water of the sea cures the sickness of all men”, Greek dramatist Euripides pointed out. We sail throughout the history of art to make ten indispensable paintings stand out which elevated the water, with their symbolic charge and supreme aesthetic category.

Lights... go well and... Action!

Navigation and Film have much more in common than anyone could think of. The main point of cohesion between these two worlds is the continuous search of roads to reach the objective. In Film, and more specifically, in screenwriting, the main element that must exist in a story is the objective that our protagonist or hero has.
