New Model: Sunseeker 68 Predator

Seeing the success of the 57 Predator, Sunseeker decided to go for a full revamp of its 68 Predator model.  The new Sunseeker 68 Predator was presented during the Southampton boat show as the new Mk.II, and considering it looks completely different to the previous 68 the title is spot on. The Sunseeker 68 Predator also introduces technical details as seen on the 57 as the disappearing patio door on the main deck.  The Sunseeker 68 Predator offers a spacious three double cabins arrangement with an owners stateroom at midships. The main deck is reserved for entertainment, with a galley located below deck in between the cabins.  Power comes from twin Man 1550hp with line shaft propulsion or surface drives option.  This last delivering maximum speeds up to 42 knots.
