THE Predator 57, launched in early 2015, quickly became one of the most popular yachts of its size in the world. This new MK 11 version takes it a new level.
The refreshed exterior features sleek pillarless windows on the upper deck and larger hull windows. The saloon windows run all the way down to the side deck, flooding the interior with light and providing uninterrupted views.
The electric patio door between the saloon and cockpit lowers to floor level, creating an impressive single entertaining space, while allowing the boat to adapt for different climates. This adaptability is further enhanced by a fully opening hardtop roof over the saloon.
There’s sleeping accommodation for six in three cabins, plus an additional single crew cabin. The impressively proportioned full beam master cabin is located amidships and benefits from lounge seating, vanity space and a sumptuous en suite. The forward cabin is another spacious double VIP cabin, while there’s a smaller twin cabin to starboard of the galley.
The transom area now has the optional mini beach club that was first seen on the Manhattan 52 in 2016 and is now a signature feature on all new Sunseeker model launches.
A variety of engine options are available, up to a maximum power of 1,800hp, matched to either shaft or pod drives. Maximum speed with the largest shaft drive motors is 40 knots, or a maximum range of 250 miles with smaller engines that give a top speed of 32 knots.
