Docked just south of Tokyo, Japan is this incredible Sunseeker yacht, packed to the brim with Monitor Audio speakers and other smart AV solutions. Before travelling to its current location, the yacht named MySkye was docked at Sunseeker’s Superyacht Boat Yard in Poole, UK during its installation.
Starting at the Flybridge – the main outdoor entertainment zone – 6 AWC280 All Weather speakers were used to provide music to the wet bar, hot tub and BBQ dining area. 2 AWC265 All Weather speakers were used to cover the rear sunbathing area, 4 more were used for the Bow and forward sunbathing area.
Monitor Audio’s All Weather speakers were perfect for the exterior of a yacht, as they’re resistant to water, weather and salt spray.
Inside the yacht in the VIP cabin, 2 Platinum PLIC II In-Ceiling speakers were used to accompany a TV providing music and TV audio to guests. Over in the owners cabin, a home cinema system was installed using 2 C265-IDC speakers for the left and right channels, a pair of CSS230 speakers were used for the surround channels, a WSS430 was used as the centre channel and a CW8 Custom Subwoofer was installed beneath the bed.
In both of the guest cabins, CSS230 speakers were used to cover audio from the TV in each cabin. Down in the crew area, our Controlled Performance CP-CT380IDCs were used to accompany their TV. Controlled Performance features a sealed back box that reduces sound escaping to the floor above.
On the main deck, a pair of Platinum PLIC II In-Ceiling speakers are used to entertain guests in the bar. Finally, in the Saloon a 7.2 surround sound system was installed. This featured an incredible 6 Platinum PLIC II In-Ceiling speakers for the left, right, side and rear channels, a WSS430 for the centre channel and a CW8 subwoofer hidden under the rear sofas.
