British yacht builder Sunseeker is aiming to start 2022 off with the world premiere of its Predator 65 at Boot Düsseldorf next year from January 22 to January 30.

The Predator 65 is 67 feet long with an aerodynamic exterior featuring tinted glazing, teak, carbon fibre, and polished stainless steel. The yacht could be powered by either a Volvo IPS-1200 or IPS-1350 engine, with the latter being able to reach a speed of 35 knots.

CEO of Sunseeker International, Andrea Frabetti, said: “The Predator 65 is an exciting proposition for any prospective buyer. With dynamic handling and exceptional performance, the driving experience is peerless while providing spacious living quarters for owners to enjoy extended time on the open water.”

The yacht has an extra-wide tender garage which allows a William Sportjet 345 tender to be carried and launched by a diagonal sliding hydraulic bathing platform. The garage space can store several other water toys such as inflatable paddleboards, and diving equipment.

The garage comes with a “Beach Club” option which enables the platform to fit free-standing furniture.

The aft cockpit includes seating backed onto the sun pad over the garage and a social bar unit with matching stools on the port side. Owners can opt for a wet bar or an extended lounge. There is also an optional crew cabin accessed via a stairwell in the cockpit. 

The Predator 65 has sliding doors to the starboard and a dropping window portside which allows the cockpit to merge seamlessly with the open-plan interior living space on the main deck. The main saloon features C-shaped seating and a fixed TV behind the helm station.

The saloon is customisable with options including seating on the starboard side with a rise-and-fall TV, or extended portside seating. The yacht features an oversized, polished, carbon-fibre sunroof above the helm that opens to more than two metres in width. 

Below deck, there are three cabins that provide accommodation for up to six guests. The master stateroom and guest cabins on the ship all feature an en-suite bathroom. The master stateroom also has an option for an open-plan owner’s office linked directly to it. 

Also having their debuts are Absolute’s 48 Coupé and 60 Fly at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Both ships already had their international debuts at the Cannes Yachting Festival prior to that. The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is currently ongoing from October 27 to 31.
