Sunseeker is a British luxury motor yacht manufacturer with a truly global brand that has become synonymous with quality and innovation.

With shipyard facilities in Poole and Weymouth, Sunseeker builds yachts ranging from 40ft (12.1m) to 155ft (47m), which are then sold in 45 countries across 5 continents.

Souter Investments was the largest investor in the FL Partners’ syndicate created to acquire a majority stake in Sunseeker. Having held the investment for three years, the Chinese conglomerate, Dalian Wanda Group acquired Sunseeker in August 2013, with Souter Investments achieving a full exit.
