VIDEO: Tour of the 86 Yacht and Sunseeker Predator 57 at LBS 2015
After a glamorous unveiling by international superstar Nicole Scherzinger, the luxurious new Predator 57 from Sunseeker was free for the general public to explore, at the CWM FX London Boat Show this month.
We also took a tour of the stunning and capacious 86 Yacht – see our video below which was filmed on the Sunseeker stand at London Boat Show on 15th January 2015.
The new Predator 57 which is set to dominate the 50-60ft cruiser market in 2015/6 has been designed to deliver the ultimate cruising experience says Sunseeker. It can achieve speeds of up to 40 knots, depending on the engine option chosen, and offers three immaculately designed and fitted cabins inside, sleeping up to six guests.
Already being well received by the boating press, the cruiser aims “to strike the perfect balance between practicality and style and offers the thrill of a top-end sports cruiser, while also being ideal for long distance cruising", said Sean Robertson, Salers Director at Sunseeker.
Predator 57 - Innovative electric door
We loved the versatility of the Predator 57. Jamie Coombes, of Sunseeker Torquay told us: “A key element of what we offer our customers is customisation, so they can specify preferred layout, interior design, engine type, electronics and finishes."
Coombes also demonstrated the electric glass door innovation on the Predator 57. Helping to bridge the gap between an ‘open’ style for warmer regions, and a ‘closed’ style for colder climates, this sport yacht features an innovative electric door between the saloon area and the cockpit. As revealed at the London Boat Show, this easy to operate gliding motion and a mechanism that allows the door to be lowered into the sole, means yacht owners can enjoy uninterrupted views and a really open plan feel when the patio doors are open.
86 Yacht – World-class engineering
This motoryacht radiates elegance and grace and is engineered for agility, despite its size. There is a four cabin arrangement that can accommodate eight guests.
A focal point is the full beam master statesroom which boasts the luxury of space, light and comfort. Outside the large flybridge provides a beautiful open air entertaining spot, and there’s even room for a spa tub for those looking for the ultimate holiday experience.
The Sunseeker design team has used the space to maximum effect, successfully creating a tranquil and comfortable sanctuary.
Sunseeker International was showing 9 luxury yachts at this year's London Boat Show.
