Sporty and sleek, Sunseeker’s largest Predator model is back with a 40-knot capability and crafted to perfectly balance style with practicality. The new Sunseeker Predator 74 epitomizes the latest Sunseeker design cues and sets new standards and benchmarks for yachting enthusiasts.
The exterior of the Sunseeker Predator 74 boasts sleek, yet oversized windows down to the side deck, which floods the interior with light and provides uninterrupted views from the saloon.
Central to its appeal, the cleverly engineered cockpit door mechanism allows it to open conventionally, but also lowers itself into the sole of the yacht. Depending on the owner’s wishes, the Predator 74 can be transformed into an ‘open’ yacht in warmer regions or a ‘closed’ yacht in cooler climates.
Relaxation areas are often the primary focus for yacht lovers and the generous saloon in the Sunseeker Predator 74 includes a sumptuous seating area, ample storage and comprehensive port side bar console; all below an extraordinary glass sliding roof.
Below deck from the saloon, there is a generous galley and three spacious en-suite cabins, comprising an aft master, starboard twin and forward VIP. The master cabin benefits from an optional walk-in wardrobe or office area.
The below deck offers complete flexibility for owners with an option to have an extended galley arrangement complete with lounge and breakfast bar seating or an additional twin guest cabin which would allow the yacht to accommodate up to eight guests in a four cabin arrangement.
The vast foredeck features a superb sunbed for soaking up the rays complete with optional pram hood canopy. Behind the Predator 74 transom, directly below the vast sunpad, the tender garage provides the space to house a new Williams 390 jet tender or Jet Ski with a hydraulic bathing platform to make launching effortless.
The transom area features an optional ‘Beach Club’ with parasol which is a Sunseeker signature feature. This area offers an inviting space for family and friends to enjoy the built-in BBQ, overhead ‘rain shower’ and fold-down transom seating.
Piercing through the waves, this yacht is powered by MAN V12 1550 horsepower engines, which give an impressive top speed of up to 35 knots. Alternatively, for the thrill seekers, the performance engine option with the MAN V12 1900 engines offers a breathtaking top speed of up to 40 knots..
From the dynamic Sport Yacht models, through its luxurious Manhattan range, iconic Predator models and its majestic Yachts range, each Sunseeker is the result of an uncompromising approach to innovative design and engineering excellence. The brand’s spirit of excellence has hence driven Sunseeker to a prominent position in the leisure marine industry.
