iPod integration has opened up in a new market - yachts.

Three new Sunseeker motor yachts being launched at this month's Southampton boat show feature iPod integration as standard.

The yachts come from the world's leading luxury yacht manufacturer, Sunseeker, which has deployed iPod-integrating Alpine Electronics head units for in-yacht entertainment.

The yachts - the Predator 52, Manhattan 52 and Manhattan 70 - will be on display at the show, which runs between 14-23 September, Alpine revealed today.

The boats feature Alpine's integrated audio-visial systems, and deliver iPod support.

Sunseeker has worked with Alpine to produce sound and vision systems in the new craft that complement the interiors and deliver good sound quality.

Alpine systems are also found as original equipment in cars from Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Lotus and Land Rover.
