Among an exceptional product line-up, the all-new Predator 55 can be seen in a world-first display.

The latest performance yacht to join the iconic Sunseeker Predator range marks 30 years of design evolution. Today, performance comes in many forms – from stabilisation and comfort to fuel efficiency and effortless manoeuvring.

Andrea Frabetti, Chief Executive Officer at Sunseeker International, commented: “Rooted in performance, the Predator 55 is a thoroughbred Sunseeker. The launch of this fun yacht is a significant milestone for our brand. Of course, the Predator 55 is one of nine world-leading yachts in the Sunseeker fleet ready to impress visitors at the world’s finest yachting event in the Mediterranean.”

The Predator 55 yacht stands out due to its distinctive curved silhouette and sloping hardtop design, distinguishing it from other 55-foot yachts. Powered by Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines that deliver 1,450 horsepower, this yacht can achieve speeds of up to 36 knots. Notable features include retractable glazing and a carbon fibre sunroof that exposes the sky above. The yacht boasts an integrated tender garage for a Williams TurboJet 325, a hydraulic bathing platform, and an aft sunpad. With newly styled exterior seating, the Predator 55 offers an expansive aft cockpit. The aft retractable doors seamlessly connect the galley side units with the cockpit wet bar, creating a harmonious indoor-outdoor layout. There is an upholstered sofa, L-shaped seating, and a formal dining area with an expandable table for enhanced comfort. The foredeck features comfortable seating, a sunpad with integrated storage, and a carbon fibre sail canopy for sun protection. A gyro option reduces rolling at anchor, ensuring maximum comfort. The customisable interior layout allows for flexibility, such as relocating the main deck galley to the lower deck to accommodate additional seating and a rise-and-fall TV. The lower deck space can also be transformed into a twin cabin with an en suite, accommodating up to six guests.
