28 Metre Yacht
This new design launches the next generation of the ‘Sunseeker’ Yacht look. The element most captivating is the remarkable extent of main deck glazing. Unusually full height and pillarless, the glazing flows continuously down the sides and around the rear of the saloon, merging with the aft patio doors. This new wrap around glazing gives the main deck accommodation a unique uninterrupted floor to ceiling panoramic view and an extraordinarily bright interior, bringing the outside in.
Just as this increases usability of the saloon throughout the day, particularly with the option of side doors and bulwark balcony, other external social areas on the foredeck and flybridge have been innovated with new sunpad and group seating formats. The large carbon fibre hard topped flybridge deck offers unrivalled room for enjoyment with a comparable increase in available space resulting in an area that can be tailored to suit every client’s needs. From spa tubs to extended sunpads, this area will have endless entertaining layouts to enjoy true al-fresco dining.
Every 28 Metre Yacht will be unique and tailored to specific customer requirements offering a breakthrough in interior layout and design with interior furnishings selected from the 2012 Sunseeker Collection of materials and linings, ensuring that the striking exterior design continues throughout the interior. Two individual stairways lead down to four equally well appointed and spacious suites, including up to two VIP double staterooms and a full-beam master stateroom. Each and every cabin incorporates the large window sets now synonymous with Sunseeker design.
Throughout, headroom and hull-side storage has been maximised demonstrating that modern design and practicality can go hand-in-hand. The completely new hull provides increased space whilst still capable of producing excellent performance speeds from a choice of engines, the final delight in a truly remarkable new craft.
The world launch of this stunning new model will take place on Friday 6th January at 11.45am. The new motor yacht Predator 53 may be the smallest in the Predator family; however she offers more interior space than most in her class whilst boasting a sharp, sporty and bold design.
Borrowing from other yachts in the Sunseeker range gives the Predator 53 superyacht a pedigree all of its own. A sleek sporting profile, the use of modern carbon materials and an intuitive accommodation layout make this yacht a winner in all departments.
The main deck saloon area is split between two spacious social areas, incorporating an aft patio door closing the area off from the aft cockpit. The saloon features a carbon sliding hardtop positioned above the helm and dinette seating area, bringing the outside in.
The lower deck accommodation comprises of three spacious cabins, two doubles and a twin, including an extensive fully fitted galley area. Fittings and equipment throughout the super yacht Predator 53 reflect the Sunseeker high standards approach with the adoption only of first class, from the finest fabrics to the latest navigation aids, whilst ensuring an ergonomic yet aesthetically pleasing helm.
Outside, the large aft cockpit with its generous seating area is available to customers in two configurations, depending on whether the client prefers a larger dedicated dining area or perhaps increased sunbathing space.
The teak planked hydraulic aft platform may sport a tender or jetbike for thrills, so just as the Predator 53 yacht joins the high performance line, it truly can still comfortably fulfil the role of a family yacht.
This year’s launch event will see a show stopping performance from the popular Asteria string quartet to mark the world launch of these stunning two new motoryachts and to showcase a selection of yachts with the new luxurious Sunseeker interior range, in association with Armani/Casa.
