Sunseeker developing Predator 65
The British builder is preparing to debut the newest addition to its sport Predator range at the beginning of 2022.
Sunseeker is scheduled to start 2022 with the world premiere of its Predator 65 at Boot Dusseldorf (January 22-30), the world’s biggest indoor boat show. The 67ft 2in model has an aerodynamic exterior featuring tinted glazing, teak, carbon-fibre and polished stainless steel, and is powered by either Volvo Penta IPS-1200 or IPS-1350 engines, reaching up to 35 knots with the latter.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker International, said: “The Predator 65 is an exciting proposition for any prospective buyer. With dynamic handling and exceptional performance, the driving experience is peerless while providing spacious living quarters for owners to enjoy extended time on the open water.”
An extra-wide tender garage allows a Williams Sportjet 345 tender to be carried and launched via a new diagonal sliding hydraulic bathing platform. The additional garage space can store Seabobs, inflatable paddleboards, diving equipment or racking. With the Beach Club option, the flush platform can fit free-standing furniture, while the opened door has a built-in rain shower, lighting and speakers.
In a standard arrangement, the aft cockpit includes seating backed onto a large sunpad over the garage and a social bar unit with matching stools on the port side. Owners can opt for a fully integrated wet bar or extended J-shaped lounge seating running aft from the galley across the width of the cockpit. The optional crew cabin is accessed via a stairwell in the aft cockpit.
Sliding doors to starboard and a dropping window portside allow the cockpit to merge with the open-plan interior living space on the main deck. The aft galley is complemented by a full-height shelving unit on the starboard side.
The main saloon features C-shaped seating and a fixed TV behind the helm station. The space is customisable with options including seating on the starboard side with a rise-and-fall TV or extended portside seating to suit the lower galley arrangement.
The oversized, polished carbon-fibre sunroof above the helm opens to more than 2m in width, flooding the living space forward with even more natural light.
Below deck, the three-cabin layout provides accommodation for up to six guests. A spacious, full-beam master stateroom features a generous en-suite, while the VIP cabin is forward. Each guest cabin has an en-suite and there is a separate day-head below.
Sunseeker has revealed photos of the first Manhattan 68 Pacific, which is headed to Hong Kong and features a new interior layout with a larger saloon and ‘Grand Master’ suite with private lounge.
