New Model: Sunseeker 80 Sport Yacht

Another exciting new exclusive on PowerYachtBlog, this time coming courtesy to one of our British friends, picturing one of the novelties from Suneeker to be launched in the coming fall; the 80 Sport Yacht just as the model was launched outside of the builder premises in Poole. The Sunseeker 80 Sport Yacht is a further development of the Predator model of the same designation launched the past September 2012.  As is a standard procedure in recent times on sport yachts over twenty meters, the difference between the two models is the addition of a flybridge or as sometimes it is called a sports bridge in the 80 Sport Yacht. Still Sunseeker seem to offer a spacious offer up top with the bridge having a C-shaped settee to starboard, a central wet bar, and a two driver and co-pilot seats serving the helm to port.   For the rest this model is the same as the 80 Predator with four double guest suites, a crew cabin to aft, and a full lounging saloon main deck.  Power options start from standard twin MTU 1550hp, optional 1950hp units, and the surface drive only available 2640hp fast performing large offer.
