The Sunseeker Predator 68 is a 71-foot sportscruiser yacht that was launched by British boat-building firm Sunseeker back in 2014. Sharp looks, an ultra-fine bow and masses of side glazing combine to make this one of the most dynamically styled Sunseeker yachts ever built, while plenty of contemporary living space both inside and out makes this is a great option for family cruising. This yacht replaces a previous, award-winning version of the Predator 68 from 2004, updating electronics and equipping the vessel with more powerful engines, to ensure that this popular model remains ahead of the pack in terms of performance.
Out on the foredeck there is a triple-pad modular sunbed with marina-facing views where guests can relax for hours on end in sheer comfort, while broad side decks lead back to a partially sheltered aft-deck. Out here you can expect a wet-bar console with a Kenyon grill, an icemaker and a freezer, across from a hook-shaped sofa that traces the starboard side of the yacht and the transom wall. This sofa connects to an elevated rear sunpad, while side steps lead down to a full-beam, teak-lined hydraulic swimming platform and a tender garage. Sunseeker Yachts offers exceptional designs for their exterior entertainment areas on board.
The Sunseeker Predator 68’s internal cockpit has to be one of the breeziest on the market thanks to fully opening rear sliding glass doors, cresting-wave side windows and a six-paned mullioned sunroof that can be retracted at the touch of a button. Authentic timber floors are paired with leather furnishings, light oak cabinetry, stainless steel accents and glossy veneered surfaces for an ultra-modern feel, and a pair of sofas provide plenty of space to sit back and relax. At the front of the cockpit you will find the starboard side helm station, a modern piloting space with two helm chairs, Simrad touch screen panels, thruster controls, trim tab controls, VHF radio, an optional Xenta joystick and a Simrad Halo 4 Pulse radar system.
A curved staircase leads down to the lower-deck lobby, where an open galley features black granite work surfaces, a three-zone hob, a convection oven and a full-height fridge-freezer unit. To the bow there is a VIP double stateroom with a two-pane skylight and an en-suite bathroom, while located to starboard is an en-suite twin. Positioned amidship you will discover the full-beam owner’s stateroom, a lavish retreat with a king-sized island bed, bedside cabinets, a pair of armchairs, a work-desk, a walk-in closet and a marble-lined bathroom with a waterfall shower. Should you require a crew to assist you as you make your way to some of the world’s premier coastal destinations on this beautiful yacht, then there is a rear crew quarters for two with its own head accessed via a transom door.
You can expect maximum speeds of up to 36 knots when pushing the Predator 68 to its limit, thanks to a pair of 1270MHP MTU or MAN diesel shaft-drive engines. If you choose to run your yacht at the slower pace of 10 knots then it has a range of around 300 nautical miles.
