Sunseeker Southampton, part of the Sunseeker London Group, has announced its full line-up of luxury motor yachts on display at the upcoming British Motor Yacht Show from 12 – 20 June, including the UK debut of three new models, the Manhattan 55, Predator 55 EVO™ and Predator 74 XPS.
The Sunseeker stand configuration will provide a safe and controlled environment for all clients and guests to enjoy whilst viewing the exceptional line-up of yachts.
Manhattan 55 – Show Debut
The Manhattan 55 has been meticulously designed to enhance comfort and cruising whilst providing owners with a vast array of social spaces – usually only seen in larger yachts. Stylish exterior glazing compliments new stainless steel and carbon fibre detailing, emphasising this model’s innovative design, attention to detail and market-leading position.
The layout of the main deck makes this the perfect boat for entertaining and socialising in style, with a strong focus on ambient lighting and interior detailing. This layout allows owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces, from the generous saloon and aft galley to social companion seating opposite the helm.
A key feature that truly sets the Manhattan 55 apart from its peers is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that retracts at the touch of a button. With the adjacent cockpit door open, this feature creates an exceptional inside/outside environment. The fully-equipped aft galley can feature a raised breakfast island with stools or a lowered worktop with a wine cooler as specified. Comfortable seating for six in the saloon has been enhanced by a modular ottoman stowed beneath the helm, ideal for creating additional seating when required.
The interiors boast attention to detail with a new palate of upholstery that provides a contemporary look, undeniably a Manhattan. There is also beautiful use of wood throughout, utilising a blend of finishes such as Wenge Satin, Silver Oak, Smoked Eucalyptus and Walnut. The saloon is drenched by light thanks to the extensive glazing and clever use of materials. The lighting design has been exceptionally well-considered throughout and includes concealed lighting within ceiling panels and furniture. Owners can select from two lighting schemes with one-touch activation. The different scenes create a distinct ambience depending on the time of day and mood.
The flybridge features a large forward sunbathing area, a wet bar and an area aft with fixed u-shaped seating with a large dining table if specified, all below an integrated hard-top option. The integrated bar includes built-in storage, barbeque grill and refrigeration options. New Manhattan exterior upholstery options are available for customers to provide an additional level of tailoring for this beautiful outside social space.
The deliberate positioning of the main deck galley allows space for three large cabins below. The en suite master cabin is a standout feature for a boat of this size, with full height headroom around the curved king-size bed. Owners can choose from a chaise sofa, breakfast table or a second sideboard with storage to starboard. The master en suite has new fittings, recessed lighting and ample stowage. Interior fabric and décor selections unique to the Manhattan range remain peerless, delivering an unprecedented quality.
The Manhattan 55 enables its owner to enjoy the space an open layout provides, showcasing the wonderfully well-equipped bathing platform and Beach Club. This area offers an inviting space for family and friends to enjoy a specified built-in barbeque, overhead shower and fold-down transom seating.
Powered by new Volvo Penta D13-800 engines, the Manhattan 55 can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 250 nautical miles or achieve more than 30 knots at full throttle.
Predator 55 EVO™ – Show Debut
The Predator 55 EVO™ is Sunseeker’s latest technology-led, cutting-edge model, with an evolutionary superstructure and interior.
Newly appointed stainless steel detailing and carbon fibre cowlings frame the iconic lines of the Predator model. Her sporty interior exudes stylish minimalism with a new range of fabrics and textures throughout. Clean lines and curves contrast perfectly to ensure comfort and style. Independent helm seats allow owners to enjoy her performance to the fullest whilst underway, offering supreme support as she pierces through the waves. Aft of the helm is well-appointed upholstered seating for six to socialise around a fixed coffee table, set opposite new push-to-touch storage cabinets. The Predator 55 EVO™ also benefits from a state-of-the-art AV system with zoning capabilities to suit the taste and mood of all on board simultaneously.
On the lower deck, the clean palette and sporty detailing continue. The aft master stateroom and en suite has ample stowage, a stylish new headboard and the same ambient lighting as the main deck. A sofa complete with breakfast tray provides the perfect spot to enjoy the early morning views out to sea to starboard. Forward if the VIP stateroom with scissor berths and en suite. Whilst a dinette opposite the lower galley, fully fitted with high-end Miele appliances as standard, provides a cosy snug or games room, there is the option for extended storage or a third Pullman guest cabin.
A hinged door and fold-up window open from the saloon into the cockpit aft to create a social expanse ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining, complemented by an optional wet bar with grill, fridge and dedicated storage. The spacious cockpit allows for even more outdoor space for those on board to enjoy, whilst an enhanced bathing platform design brings guests closer to the water and offers easy launching from the garage of a Williams 325 jet tender.
Available with a Twin Volvo Penta D11-725 on shafts, the Predator 55 EVO™ will perform 32 knots whilst yet another technological innovation is the boat’s ‘Hydro-Pack’, utilising a fly-by-wire steering system and independent rudders for exceptional agility. Optional thrusters, joystick and a Humphree Automatic Interceptor System also add to the performance of this sleek and aggressive model.
Predator 74 XPS – Show Debut
The Predator 74 XPS features dramatic new styling and numerous luxurious appointments, only available together as part of a limited edition package. This yacht offers performance, equipped with a 1900 MAN engine and style with the latest interior and exterior design enhancements.
The new design extends throughout the interior. The use of exquisite woods, luxurious contrasting fabrics and rich lacquers throughout, paired with new indirect and dimmable lighting, creates a sophisticated and striking ambience. Bold new options include carbon fibre trims, sharp accent designs, reflective surfaces and stainless-steel cabinet detailing.
The exterior social spaces have a cutting-edge feel, with the Predator 74 XPS featuring an electric lowering carbon fibre cockpit table and enhanced upholstery across all seating and sunpads. Attention to detail is exemplary in every area, including sleek new LED navigation lights. If owners want the ultimate expression of the XPS models, their yacht can be specified with a stunning dark grey hull with a silver superstructure, ready to turn heads.
Alongside these new models, Sunseeker will be showcasing the exhilarating Hawk 38 and magnificent 76 Yacht.
