SUNSEEKER LINE-UP FOR THE SOUTHAMPTON INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW UNVEILED
Sunseeker has announced its line up at Britian's biggest festival of boating, Southampton International Boat Show, due to take place from Friday 16th - Sunday 25th September at Mayflower Park, with its spectacular line-up of eight models ranging in size from the Manhattan 55 through to the 90 Ocean.
Sean Robertson, Sales and Marketing Director at Sunseeker International, commented: "We are looking forward to showcasing another stellar line-up at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show with our expert team on hand to offer comprehensive sales advice and support throughout the ten-day show."
Sunseeker will showcase the two Manhattan’s from its range, the Manhattan 55 and Manhattan 68 which are meticulously designed to enhance comfort and cruising whilst providing owners with a vast array of social spaces usually only seen in larger yachts. From the 65-foot category, the brand-new Predator 65 with next-generation technology will be a show exclusive alongside the award-winning 65 Sport Yacht. Another Predator, the Predator 74 will join the line-up alongside the 76 Yacht and 88 Yacht from Sunseeker’s impressive Yacht range. Finally, the striking 90 Ocean will complete the eight-yacht line-up. Offering a full suite of luxury, innovation and design for clientele to enjoy.
Predator 65 – UK Debut
The all-new Predator 65 benefits from next-generation technology designed to take the stress out of boating. Installed with the latest Volvo Penta IPS System with their fully integrated pilot, engine data and navigation systems, the Predator 65 is an intuitive motor yacht capable of effortless manoeuvring and easy handling for new boat owners.
A single piece windshield and newly designed carbon fibre sunroof floods the main deck with an abundance of natural light, bringing the owner closer to the elements than previous models. The dramatic exterior is a striking blend of tinted glazing, teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel, perfectly balancing traditional Sunseeker design concepts with cutting-edge material innovation to create a dynamic performance model.
In a standard arrangement, the aft cockpit comprises of comfortable seating backed onto a large sun pad 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 C-shaped lounge seating running aft from the galley across the width of the cockpit if desired. This new model benefits from an optional crew cabin, accessed via a dedicated stairwell in the aft cockpit.
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 thoughtfully designed forward VIP cabin provides an equally comfortable haven for guests. Each guest cabin has an en-suite, and there is a separate day-head below. Optionally, an open-plan owner’s office linked to the master stateroom, a single-berth cabin, lower deck galley or saloon can be specified, delivering flexibility for any owner.
An extra-wide tender garage allows a Williams 345 jet 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. If specified as a Beach Club, the fully flush floor lends itself to free-standing furniture with a rain shower, lighting and speakers built into the opened door.
Altogether, the Predator 65 combines power and performance with generous cabins and a striking interior, offering a one-of-a-kind owner experience.
