New Model: Sunseeker 50 Predator

Sunseeker is usually associated of presenting products of a modern pedigree, always with that something newer and latest to the previous model.  So when Sunseeker introduced the new 50 Predator, it was interesting to see the builder taking an evaluation step and looking to the basics in what it has offered in the fifteen to eighteen meter sizes in the last six to eight years and delivering it in a fifteen meter package.  The new 50 Predator is a modern sport yacht, it is in the end a Sunseeker, and in its size it still one of the most future looking machines, but is also spacious and in its category of a fifteen meter sports yacht possibly offers the most space.  But the more you analyze the 50 Predator more interesting its gets especially when you see it is powered by a basic line shaft propulsion, and yet in all this still offers a much more spacious interior to that of the 50 San Remo it replaces.  The full beam midships owners cabin of the 50 Predator is bigger to that of the San Remo, as is all the lower and main deck.  So the questions comes automatic without IPS pod drives, and only half a meter more of length how did Sunseeker manage to find all this space in the 50 Predator?  The Sunseeker 50 Predator is one of the most exciting boats I have seen from Poole and is a class leader in its size and in all this to what I have heard is also competitively priced.
