BRITAIN’S biggest boatbuilder Sunseeker International has revealed details of a new model set to have its world premiere at next month’s Southampton International Boat Show.

The Predator 60 EVO will cost £1.135million plus VAT, depending on engine and spec levels.

It is the first model in a product development plan from the luxury boat builder, which recently announced plans to double its range to 22 models over the next three years.

The company said: “Sporty and sleek, the Predator 60 EVO is the first model of Sunseeker’s major new product development plan with innovative stand out features and a truly sophisticated interior design.

“The superstructure exemplifies the very latest in Sunseeker’s cutting-edge design which includes an all-new window line and powered carbon fibre hardtop with glazed panels, both helping to flood the interior with natural light.

“The hull retains its iconic glazing design and is now embellished with polished stainless-steel detailing. Customers can even opt from a choice of bespoke paint finishes, enabling them to create a Sunseeker that will be truly unique.

“Central to its appeal, the cleverly engineered cockpit door mechanism allows it to open conventionally but also lower itself into the sole of the yacht, connecting the outdoor and indoor living spaces seamlessly.

“Embracing a bold design direction, the model features all-new interior styling, furnishings, textures and materials; the Predator 60 EVO delivers a sophisticated, modern yet sporty style to surprise any owner.

“The beautifully proportioned and ergonomically designed helm console is part of a wider focus on technology that Sunseeker will be rolling out across all its new models. The latest Simrad touch screen display enhances the customer experience with a simplified and intuitive user interface allowing integrated control of all essential systems.

“Featuring six berths in three cabins, below deck replicates the sophisticated furnishings and flawless design on the main deck. The full-beam master stateroom, which is located amidship with en suite, has been finished in a contemporary style with a key focus on textures, fabrics and light.”

A single berth crew cabin, with a tender garage as standard, allows a Williams 325 Jet RIB to be carried and launched via the hydraulic bathing platform.

The Predator 60 EVO comes with a range of engine and drive systems including the new Volvo Penta D13-1000 engines on shafts, capable of speeds up to 34knots.

Last month, Chinese-owned Sunseeker announced that profits had grown from £1.1m to £6.6m last year. Only five years ago, the Poole-based company had lost £41m and shed 300 jobs.

Southampton International Boat Show runs from September 13-22. It will feature more than 330 boats on a purpose-built marina, as well as more than 600 marine brands exhibiting their kit.
