Sunseeker International Case Study

Sunseeker optimizes yacht design, parts procurement and build with NX and Teamcenter

With sleek lines, spacious decks and sport performance, Sunseeker yachts exude presence and power. In harbors all over the world, the external styling can be identified instantly, and the curvaceous interiors provide all the comforts of home. The Sunseeker brand encompasses boats ranging from 40 feet to a stunning 155 feet in length. Through attention to detail, use of advanced composites and the application of technology, the company continues to make refinements and expand its product line. The design team is typically developing four new or refreshed models each year, and has been using NX™ software and Teamcenter® software from product life-cycle management (PLM) specialist Siemens PLM Software for more than a decade.

These solutions underpin a complex development process that seamlessly takes concepts from the design office through manufacturing in the boatyard, and out onto the water.

” A boat is a very, very complicated product, but i can find no limitation with NX”
Design creativity and clarity

Sunseeker has more than 40 licenses of NX and Teamcenter, provided through Siemens PLM Software partner OnePLM (Formally known as Prion Cutting Edge). “We have worked with the specialists at OnePLM for over 12 years, and their technical expertise is second-to-none,” says Luke Stride, design office manager and principal design engineer. “They are always professional and exceptionally helpful. In particular, we are very happy with the soft-ware training they provide, as we are able to learn using our own designs.”
