Riva, iconic Ferretti Group brand, announces the birth of the new flagship of their open line, featuring racy exteriors with a strong personality: Riva 63′ Virtus, is the largest open yacht produced by the shipyard, characterised by an unmistakable style and a distinctly Mediterranean character. The new Riva 63′ Virtus is the product of a close working relationship between Officina Italiana Design, the studio that exclusively designs all yachts in the Riva range, the AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology, the Ferretti Group’s naval research and design centre, and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup. The new model has been designed as a sporty yacht, created for owners wishing to experience the sea first hand.
In the passage of model years, one introductory boat to another, “new” and “different” are the easy bywords. “Valuable,” not so much. The demonstration of authentic, enduring value in each new feature on a boat becomes exponentially more challenging, yet rewarding with each passing season, and so now the Cobalt 243 follows in the direct lineage of the rightfully recognized Cobalt A25, last year’s fan favorite in the delivery of genuine value.
The Predator 74 has the option to include a sports fly bridge with a dual helm. Sunseeker provide a semi-custom approach to the Predator 74 as seen on all the Predator range, allowing for a number of optional changes to the design.
As with many sports yachts in this size bracket the customer can model the boats interior and to some extent the exterior to their own individual taste.
As you would expect the latest design technologies and building techniques have been employed throughout the predator 74, there is a large aft garage that comes as standard, providing space for a choice of smaller craft and even the option to have a fully bespoke dive facility platform. The customer can also choose to include a twin crew cabin at the stern, without losing the garage space if so required.
The main deck space is plentiful with a large saloon and aft cockpit area, ideal for entertaining during those summer evenings. Enjoying state-of-the-art digital sound and TV systems situated within the seductive dining area complimented perfectly by the up market lounge, together creating that perfect tranquil environment we have come to know from Sunseeker
The accommodation has multiple choices available to the customer. A standard layout can be with a full-beam master stateroom with large en-suite, a twin cabin to starboard and VIP stateroom forward both with en-suite facilities. There is a large fully equipped galley to port incorporating a range of high quality appliances and a separate seating/dining area which has the option of becoming a separate Pullman cabin with twin berths if required.
As you would expect the Predator 74 can be married up with a range of engines from Man, MTU or Caterpillar our ones to watch would be the 2 Man 1800PS which would give the Predator 74 a top speed in excess of 40 Knots and a range of approximately 380Nm.
With space for 8 guests and 2 crew the Sunseeker 74 Predator is certain to be on your list if you’re in the market for a 60ft to 80ft Sports Cruiser.
