Sunseeker Portugal’s CEO Stephen Handy explains “the diversity of adventures and boating opportunities in this breath-taking region of Portugal is magnificent.”
Established over 50 years ago, the iconic British-built Sunseeker boats have dominated the world’s marine industry with their head-turning style, innovation and meticulous engineering. Sunseeker Portugal provides a comprehensive boating service selling a wide range of new boats, pre-owned vessels and charters as well as full guardianage. Steve is passionate about Sunseeker “they are a beautiful product with a dynamic nature which is unmatched in my opinion in its overall delivery.” Sunseeker boats range from 55 feet up, starting at over a million pounds to up to 150 feet.
Additionally, Sunseeker Portugal sell the dynamic Axopar and Brabus Marine boats, a brand that has taken the industry by storm. These brilliantly practical ‘SUV of the Sea’ vessels harness adventure and have proved incredibly popular.
Steve explains, “These brilliantly designed boats which range in size from 22′ – 45′ are filling marinas all over the world.” It would seem Portugal is no exception and these great day boats appeal to those with a sense of adventure. A little over 3 years ago the Finnish Axopar brand joined forces with the renowned German automotive giant Brabus to create BRABUS Marine – devoted to redefining luxury day boating through building and developing an ultra-exclusive, supremely exciting new breed of luxury tenders.
The multi-lingual Sunseeker Portugal team are a shining example of the legendary Sunseeker Family. The relationships they have with their clients and professionals they work with they hold dear. Steve points out “We go above and beyond for our clients who become part of our extended Sunseeker family. We are so much more than boat brokers; We arrange everything from sourcing the best restaurants and safe anchorage to providing transfers and full guardianage service. Our unique expertise, breadth of knowledge and perspective of this stunning part of Portugal is something we are proud and privileged to share with our clients.”
“We give a holistic overarching service to the customer so they are not being exposed to liabilities especially following Brexit.”
“In our experience we are unmatched in the way we manage the sales process smoothly. We are Portugal experts and are able to give vendors the confidence that they will get their boat sold. We advertise in all of the yacht portals available in the marine industry, and as part of the award-winning Sunseeker London Group we have a far-reaching advantage.”
Steve explains “Guardianage is the service we provide through a scheduled program of preventative maintenance. We offer a menu to our clients to give them flexibility on how much or little they want of those services. We also offer turn-key boating, so the client can arrive and find the boat fully cleaned, fueled, prepped and stocked with all their favorite beverages and local delicacies.
A hugely important part of the service Sunseeker Portugal offers is finding superb captain and crew. Our far-reaching connections and decades of experience means our little black book is brimming with contacts for the best marine professionals in the world. An extended part of the Sunseeker Family, the right professionals on your boat, whether for the day or full-time can make a huge difference to your cruising.

They have the key to a multitude of hidden gems waiting to be explored and sensational spots to watch the famous Portuguese Sunrises and sunsets.
