Project: Sunseeker 53 Predator

Sunseeker presents the project for a 53 Predator.  This project model is a fully enclosed sports yacht with patio door, and when launched will replace the 52 Predator of the same concept.  The 53 Predator will also be part of Sunseeker's Performance Motoryacht range.  In my understanding this model shares hull and concept with the just launched 53 Manhattan, that means that all the benefits of better use of height which the 53 offers versus the 52 should be found.  Meaning larger owners full beam midships stateroom, more headroom in the VIP suite, and no bunks third cabin.  Better use of space in the saloon should also be found and the galley, and also larger shower heads.  Power is up to 800hp with a choice of straight shaft or the more economic to run Volvo IPS pods.  Wide open throttle speed is 32 knots.
