Sunseeker unveils Style and Substance at Southampton Boat Show
Sunseeker International will unveil the very latest additions to its range of luxury motor yachts at Southampton Boat Show from 14th to 23rd September 2012.
Topping the bill at Southampton will be the UK premiere of the eagerly awaited new Predator 80 alongside the all new Portofino 40. These two new additions will be accompanied by 10 of Sunseeker's finest luxury yachts including the recently launched 28 Metre Yacht which will be on the water.
The all new Predator 80 will join its famous siblings as the most flexible yacht in the range, offering limitless options from top-end sports performance through to long distance cruising, and everything in between. The stunning range of options available on the Predator 80 truly makes it a yacht to suit every lifestyle.
With a sleek, aggressive new look and a performance hull the Predator 80 will accommodate a guest party of eight in a four cabin arrangement, with crew quarters in the stern. And with the performance option of Twin Arneson drives coupled with twin 16V 2000 M14 MTUs, the Predator will leave the competition in its wake at a top speed of 45 knots, while this standard engine option still delivers an impressive 30-40 knot performance.
Sunseeker Managing Director Stewart McIntyre said: "Southampton Boat Show is one of our most important shows of the year as it gives us an opportunity to meet so many of our clients and friends. This year we are bringing a stunning collection of our finest yachts, from the exquisite Portofino 40 which has been a real passion project for everyone at Sunseeker through to the all new Predator 80 which has been so eagerly awaited."
The all new Portofino 40 is being launched following an intensive study of this highly competitive sector culminating in the creation of a truly class-leading all rounder. The spacious four+one berth layout boasts two exquisitely designed cabins, a luxurious central saloon, galley and twin access head and shower room.
The real delight of this new sports cruiser is the spacious feeling throughout from the exquisite owner's stateroom right through to the spacious VIP galley. The surprising headroom and impressive panoramic hull-side windows which flood light to the cabins and saloon as well as creating a real 'wow factor' giving an impression of space not found in any of its competitors in the same class.
While the Portofino 40 boasts truly class-leading design and luxury, performance is still at its heart. The standard Volvo D6 330 stern drive's will propel the Portofino 40 to impressive speeds of up to 35 knots, and with the engine upgrade option to D6 400s it is anticipated to reach performance speeds of close to 40 knots.
Sunseeker will also be showcasing exclusive designs and specifications of its flagship 155 Yacht which was announced earlier this year with the first order due to be launched late 2013.
The new Predator 80 and Portofino 40 will join the other Sunseeker yachts on display at Southampton International Boat Show on 14th to 23rd September Stand C080.
