The Next Evolution of the Sunseeker Predator 55 Arrives
“The Sunseeker Predator 55 is the next step in our New Product Development plan that seeks to produce at least three new boats in this size category, each with its own differentiating features designed to appeal to our discerning clients. A completely new silhouette for the Predator has arrived in this new 55-foot model. An aggressive profile shines with new styling cues never-before-seen in the range. Importantly, her driving dynamics remain true to the model’s heritage – she is born to perform”.
– Andrea Frabetti, Chief Executive Officer at Sunseeker International
The performance model is equipped with Twin Volvo Penta IPS-950 engines, and reaches speeds of up to 35 knots.
Silhouettes & Sunroofs
This model is leading the way with a new curved silhouette. The Predator 55 is a stunning new motor yacht in the Sunseeker range. The exterior has a sloping hardtop design. The low profile also stands out as a new aesthetic feature.
There is one key characteristic that makes the Predator 55 stand out from other yachts. This is the retractable glass and carbon fiber sunroof integrated into the hardtop. Operated via the helm console, the 2.5m x 3m sunroof slides aft revealing the sky above. The 55 Predator exudes a stylish new exterior presence. There is a single piece double curved windshield combined with expansive glazing in all directions that dazzles. Natural light fills the interior space and connects to the cockpit.
Style & Functionality
Innovation abounds within the aft cockpit. Portside seating can reposition to meet the fixed seating and table amidships. Seating includes ample space for six, complete with an electrical sun canopy option. This adaptable seating design enables occupants to sit in comfort whilst dining. It also clears the deck space when retracted to port. The large sun pad sits over the garage. It features adjustable headrest bolsters and built-in drink holders. It also maintains a view that guests will never tire of.
Dual transom steps lead up to the cockpit. Broad side decks, en-route to the foredeck complete with a sliding sun pad and ample stowage. It will prove a popular place to congregate. It will also provide the ultimate space for all-day sunbathing. A gyro option will mitigate any rolling at anchor. The flush foredeck now features hidden anchoring hardware. This is a first in this size category.
The Main Deck
A single-level main deck comprises a generous saloon. A sofa on portside, and an L-shaped galley with a hob and refrigeration completes the set up. There is also a TV on a pivoting bracket on the starboard side. The galley side units connect with the linear cockpit wet bar. With the patio door opened to port, there is a connection between inside and outside. Sight lines courtesy of the expansive glazing remain uninterrupted. They connect all on board with the horizon. Twin bolstered seats complement Sunseeker’s exciting new-generation helm station.
In a standard arrangement, the lower deck makes full use of the available space. There are two cabins, lower saloon to starboard and a storage room or optional utility room.
The luxurious master cabin is full-beam amidships. It offers generous private quarters that are now synonymous with Sunseeker. Upon entry to the lobby is a full-height wardrobe to starboard and an extensive en suite to port. The large double bed sits centrally with sofa seating and a sideboard. There is also a centrally located vanity unit and TV.
An equally spacious forward double cabin benefits from an en suite and plenty of storage. With an emphasis on interior volume for long-distance cruising, both cabins benefit from increased headroom, elevating the feel of spaciousness.
The interior layout can be modified to suit an owner’s exact requirements. The main deck galley can be moved to the lower deck and replaced with a sofa and rise-and-fall TV. With this option, the lower galley replaces the lower saloon and storage or utility room. This space can also be specified as an optional twin cabin with en suite providing accommodation for up to six guests in comfort.
