Sunseeker International will launch the brand new Predator 130 at this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show. Already acclaimed as ‘star-of-the-show’, this outstanding high performance motoryacht boasts the very latest advances in design and innovation.
The Predator 130 is the latest and largest in the Sunseeker Performance Motoryacht range and has been designed with true blue-water cruising in mind, featuring the company’s well proven hard-chine hull and trademark high deck design. The deep ‘V’ hull design offers exceptional handling and sea-keeping qualities, making this model easy to handle in all sea conditions.
The Predator 130 also has all the features expected on a luxury ocean-going vessel, such as the latest navigation and communication equipment. Built to the most stringent criteria, computerised engine management coupled with touch screen monitoring provides crew with information that is literally at their fingertips, which not only improves efficiency and safety but helps prevent malfunction. Advanced use of hydraulics, computer-controlled generators and electrical systems add to the Predator 130’s reliability.
The sleek design houses a two and a half deck layout along with an exceptionally large flybridge that provides plenty of seating and sunbathing space along with a full bar layout and spa tub. The hardtop with opening sunroof provides shelter over the flybridge helm and seating/dining areas.
Palatial in scale, the Predator 130 enjoys ultra-spacious accommodation for ten guests and ingenious layouts, allowing the crew to move freely but discretely about the boat. The full width owner’s stateroom is located forward on the main deck. Moving back through the boat there are steps to the raised wheelhouse, a large fully equipped galley, separate dining area and saloon while the large aft cockpit provides ample space for al-fresco dining and seating. The lower deck comprises two large double guest suites aft and two double cabins all with their own en-suite facilities. The crew mess and accommodation for up to seven crew is forward with separate access through the galley.
This particular Predator 130 will feature a number of special options including hydraulically opening balconies on the saloon sides and master stateroom - the first to ever be featured on a Sunseeker. One of the lower deck guest cabins has been customised as a gymnasium and the boat has been constructed with a light oak finish, highlighting the contemporary decor and interior.

Sunseeker CEO Robert Braithwaite CBE said: “Despite a difficult world economy, Sunseeker has proved once again that innovation and a desire to design and produce the very best can still generate success. We are extremely proud to be able to launch the Predator 130 at the show this year and hope our clients and visitors enjoy the opportunity to experience first-hand the craftsmanship, style and elegance of this outstanding vessel".
