Sunseeker International will unveil two new Predator 50 and Predator 74 models at the upcoming Düsseldorf Boat Show from January 20-28, 2018.

The 50 and 74 models will join the popular Predator speedboat range. The boats are currently being completed in Dorset at Sunseeker's production facility. The models stand out for their luxuriously elegant lines, open floor plan and stylish interior.

The design of the Predator 50 boat is enhanced with a hard folding roof, sliding doors and hinged windows. All of this creates an almost completely open space. The cockpit seats in the front and rear fold out to form a large and comfortable sun bed. The saloon is also large enough to make the perfect seating area for guests.

These factors allow the owner to turn the Predator 50 into a boat with an open or enclosed cockpit. This is something rarely seen on a yacht of this size.

The interior combines the highest quality materials and enormous windows, and this extends to the master suite which even in its basic configuration has a luxury separate bathroom.

In the forward VIP stateroom there is a sliding bed with scissor mechanism «» , the room is as well lit as the master cabin. The boat can accommodate 4 guests in comfort and coziness, an additional cabin can be placed instead of the lower cabin, thus providing accommodation for 6 people.

The stylish, company-oriented deck offers plenty of forward seating, and a folding awning can be placed over the sunbathing area. Moving aft, passengers can make use of the built-in barbecue and outdoor shower and spread out seating on the folding transom.

«All this is in line with Sunseeker's» beach club concept.

The interior garage can accommodate a Williams 325 Jet Tender, with a hydraulically-operated swim platform for easy launching.

As with every model in the Predator range, performance is very important here. That's why the powerful Volvo Penta D8-600 engine is aboard, with optional electric motor-driven steering and joystick control for easy maneuvering.

The Predator 74, the largest model in her range, can reach speeds of up to 40 knots. She was designed to be a model of style and practicality.

The boat's huge windows are not separated by vertical posts, they guarantee magnificent views of the water and allow filling the interior spaces with natural light.

Of particular interest is the design of the cockpit doors, which open freely leaving the floor.

The spacious saloon features a U-shaped sofa, plenty of storage space and a bar on the left hand side. All this under the magnificent panoramic roof.

The lower deck features a spacious galley and three cabins (aft master, starboard 2-person stateroom and forward VIP stateroom) all with ensuite bathrooms.

The master stateroom can be easily converted into a study. The galley layout allows for additional seating or breakfast area. Optionally, this space can be converted into a second cabin. Thus the boat can accommodate 8 people in 4 cabins.

On the foredeck there are sunbathing mattresses, a foldable awning can be fitted. Behind the transom, under the sun bed, there is a garage for the Williams 390 Jet Tender speedboat or jet ski. They can be loaded there directly from the hydraulic swim platform.

«Beach Club» can also be created on this model. It would also include a grill, shower and canopy. This option was first introduced on the Manhattan 52 and has been a trademark of the brand ever since.

The Predator 74 is equipped with MAN V12 engine, rated at 1550 hp. An optional MAN V12 1990 is available to enable the Predator 74 to reach a claimed top speed of 40 knots.
