One of the biggest boats at the 2015 CWM FX London Boat Show was also one of the newest: the Sunseeker Predator 57. Three years in development, she is being hailed by her makers as a redefinition of the Predator range. reviewer, Alex Smith takes us round the Predator 57's key features in this First look Video.




Down below there is accommodation for six guests and a galley that is bathed in natural light from the open stairwell up into the saloon. However, the focus aboard this 40-knot £1million luxury cruising machine, is, as you would expect, on the social areas: the saloon area behind the helm station and back into the cockpit.

The enormous sliding hard top on the Sunseeker Predator 57 allows copious amounts of natural light in without compromising on the shelter and warmth available when the weather closes in. But the highlight, in terms of design ingenuity is the sliding patio doors. These are built to not only slide out of the way but also drop below deck to create an inside-outside area over 30ft long.

For an interesting comparison to the Sunseeker Predator 57, take a look at our First Look Video of the more family-friendly Beneteau GT 49 Fly  or perhaps the First Look Video of the Princess 68.
