Sunseeker International welcomed HRH The Earl of Wessex last week to its manufacturing facilities in Poole.

During his visit, The Earl helped the company to recognize a sales milestone for its 76 Yacht, a model which launched at the Southampton Boat Show in September last year.

His Royal Highness was in Poole as part of his commitments to promote The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE), the world’s leading youth achievement program.

Sunseeker, which has a very successful apprenticeship program that was recently awarded ‘Best Apprenticeship and Training Scheme’ at the International Boat Builder Awards, formally invited HRH The Earl of Wessex for a tour of the factory to see its award-winning boats being manufactured and to meet with its staff, including some of its 116 apprentices.

During the tour, His Royal Highness met with Sunseeker staff and apprentices, along with other local distinguished guests.
