Predator 55 Evo (17.05m)
Sunseeker has revolutionised its Predator range with the Predator 55 Evo. State-of-the-art “hydro-pack” technology which utilises a fly-by-wire steering system for impressive agility, allowing owners to cut through the water with fluency. Her arrangement promotes space maximisation to the fullest, with low-slung furniture in the saloon and a reconfigured helm console featuring touch panels and controls that intuitively fall to the hand.
The Predator 55 Evo enjoys striking feature lighting and stainless steel trim on cabinetry and shelving. Owners can enjoy a generous bathing platform at the stern, with an improved tender garage design that enables smooth launch and recovery, complete with remote control operation for ease and convenience. The garage space can comfortably accommodate a 325 Williams jet tender, paddleboards, SeaBobs and diving equipment for owners to enjoy their time on the water. Available with twin Volvo Penta D11-725 engines on shafts, the Predator 55 Evo has a top speed of 32 knots.
Manhattan 55 (17.21m)
Exemplifying the latest in Sunseeker’s design capabilities, the Manhattan 55 is crafted to enhance comfort and cruising whilst providing owners with an array of social spaces from the vast flybridge to the generous saloon. The exceptional layout allows owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces.
A key feature that truly sets the Manhattan 55 apart from its peers is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be lowered at the touch of a button. With the adjacent cockpit door open, this feature creates an exceptional inside/outside environment.
Powered by new Volvo Penta D13-800 engines, the Manhattan 55 can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 230 nautical miles or achieve more than 30 knots at full throttle.
65 Sport Yacht (20.5m)
The Sunseeker 65 Sport Yacht is fundamentally different from the current Sunseeker range in the 60ft segment due to its sculptured exterior design, innovative helm concept and stylish interior appointments. Her sleek exterior profile, with a minimalist bridge deck, has been enhanced by the addition of rakish hull glazing, emphasising her modern sporting prowess whilst increasing natural light into the lower deck spaces.
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.
88 Yacht (26.38m)
The 88 Yacht perfectly showcases Sunseeker’s new-found design direction. There are an abundance of social spaces on board, making it the perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends. The vast flybridge enjoys a superb layout with beautifully appointed furniture on the spacious aft deck and the option of an infinity spa bath with sun pad.
It’s a brilliant space for entertaining with ample places to sit and relax thanks to companion seating adjacent to the helm and extended U-shaped seating opposite a feature wet bar. Owners can also opt for fixed stools to turn this into a lively bar area. The teak foredeck features another social space with a Portuguese bridge.
90 Ocean (27.1m)
Reaching an impressive 1,800 nautical mile range at a cruising speed of 12 knots and a top speed of 26 knots, the 90 Ocean is a distinctive force in the water. From her generous beach club complete with innovative transformational X-Tend sunbed system to the impressive foredeck, equipped with a laser projector and 140-inch screen ready to transform this area into an open-air cinema, this is the perfect craft for luxury entertainment.
Up onto the vast flybridge, owners can select an infinity-style spa pool to complement U-shaped seating and a large sunpad, all serviced by a newly styled integrated wet bar framed with LED lighting. She accommodates eight guests in four cabins, three doubles and a twin in a standard arrangement, or up to 10 guests in a customised configuration.
