Highlighted by exhilarating performance and unmistakable styling and craftsmanship, the Predator 68 makes a breath-taking statement as it pierces through the waves. A classic example of Sunseeker innovation, the yacht features exquisite interior options and captivating design, with a sliding roof that adds a sense of occasion to every journey – especially those undertaken at a top speed of 43 knots.
For the latest 2017 MKII version, the emphasis is on sportier lines and its capacity, with the touch of a button, to be transformed from an open design to a closed interior – via a large glass door.
At the helm, there are two seats to starboard (outboard one for the driver) and a matching pair of seats to port for guests. There is a large entertainment space aft of the helm including a Gaggenau electric grill, sink, stowage cabinet, cool box, integrated ice bucket, Raritan ice-maker, and cutting board with a pair of built-in drink holders.
Behind the passenger seats to port is a four-seat banquette with stowage compartments beneath the cushions; while across the transom is another seating area with a Besenzoni hi-lo table. The decks are all teak, and the platform hydraulically drops about one metre.
The Predator 68 has a three-stateroom, three-head layout designed around the saloon and galley. The forepeak and the master, aft and amidships of the saloon, have en-suite heads; and the twin-berth stateroom, with its entrance door aft and to starboard of the saloon, utilises the day head.
The interior finish is highlighted by crafted cherry, while the saloon’s seating area features an expansive leather settee and hinged-leaf table – flexible for either dinner for four or a feast for eight. The galley is equipped with a long granite countertop, separate under-counter Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, four-burner Bosch electric stovetop and Miele dishwasher.
Half the aft cockpit is reserved for a sunpad for four, flanked on either side by staircases that lead down to the large teak beach, with the addition of a transom access garage for a tender, PWC or water-toys.
The Predator 68 is powered by twin MAN V8 1,200 HP engines, enabling it to cruise at 24 knots with a range of 300 nautical miles. An engine upgrade is available to MAN V12 1,550 HP diesels that can reach 43 knots at wide-open-throttle.
