The world debut of the new Sunseeker Predator 115 at the Southampton International Boat Show follows in the success of her award-winning big sister, the Predator 130. Although smaller in length, the Predator 115 retains many of the stunning characteristics that have made the Predator 130 so successful. She has the exterior deck space of a Yacht but remains Predator in her look with an exemplary level of onboard luxury and, taking inspiration from the 34 Metre Yacht’s accommodation plan, can comfortably accommodate a party of up to 10 in five cabins, with a crew of five.
Expansive aft cockpit, flybridge and foredeck social areas provide endless entertainment opportunities, while for relaxation, the spacious flybridge features a large sunpad including spa tub, a large wet bar with stools, as well as generous seating area and tables for that perfect alfresco dining experience.
By specifying the optional hard top, which supplies shade in the sun and beautiful down lighting for evening use, this area can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
The helm on the forward starboard side of the flybridge provides an option for the vessel to be operated from outside rather than from the raised wheelhouse, while the main deck boasts a large aft cockpit including spacious lounge seating plus table and, if specified, a bar for drinks service.
The saloon can include a long or short arrangement layout, dependent on the client’s preference for additional inside or outside space. If the long saloon option is specified, the drinks service is moved from the aft cockpit and located on the aft starboard side, just forward of the main entrance doors.
The full beam master stateroom is a stunning feature, more often seen on yachts much larger in size. Thanks to its considered layout, the owner enjoys maximum space and privacy.
A further four guest cabins are incorporated on the lower deck – two doubles and two twins, each featuring the large panoramic trademark ‘organic’ portlights which provide a wealth of natural light.
There is an option for balconies on either side of the main deck saloon consisting of sliding patio doors and hinge-out bulwark sections, which open up magnificent seascapes and bring in more natural light, promoting the outside/inside feel so popular in design today.
The Predator 115 has been built to RINA pleasure craft classifications with optional MCA LY2 short range yacht charter classification and the accommodation layout assures future-proof compliance with the latest crew cabin legislation. The vessel also accommodates a large aft tender garage for two jet bikes, and a tender up to five and a half metres plus hydraulic rise-and-fall transom platform.
Robert Braithwaite, Sunseeker founder, says: “We have achieved so much with this magnificent craft and once again we have pushed the boundaries of innovation. The new Predator 115 provides performance, space and the aggressive lines and sharp long bow which are synonymous with the Predator range, yet offers something genuinely new and exciting to further extend the range.”
He continues: “It is a vessel that offers exceptional performance as well as the trademark attenuation and smooth riding for which Sunseeker is renowned.”
With several Predator 115s in production and orders already confirmed well into 2012 and beyond, the success of this exciting new model is already guaranteed and continues the impressive growth of the Predator range.
