New Model: Sunseeker 57 Predator

A waited model from Sunseeker, the 57 Predator will be the entry level of the renowned range which today starts with the 53.  The 57 Predator indeed shares hull shape albeit a bit extended with the previous 52 and the replacing 53, but contrary to the previous models features a totally new upper structure different from the Manhattan range. This is a striking difference since the 52 and 53 Predator did always appear to be a bit structure heavy versus the sleekness associated with the range. For this reason alone the 57 Predator will feature a smaller interior portion of main deck, with the plus of a larger exterior area aft. The 57 Predator will also be offered just like the 60 model with two main deck options, enclosed hard top with patio door, or fully open hard top for the Summer cruisers. Lower deck accommodation will feature three double cabins; this including an owners full beam stateroom, VIP suite forward, and a double bunk berth guest cabin to starboard.  A C-shape galley is located to port side below deck in between cabins, with an option crew cabin aft with separate entrance.  The 57 Predator also features two tender spaces, bathing platform and a garage aft.  Power are twin Volvo 800hp on shafts, with IPS propulsion being a possible alternative option.
