INTRODUCING THE SUNSEEKER PREDATOR 53

saloon

Galley

A sleek sporting profile, the use of modern carbon materials and an intuitive accommodation layout make this boat a winner in all departments. Launching in 2012, the Predator 53 is deceptively roomy offering more interior space whilst retaining the instantly recognisable sharp, sporty, bold Predator look.

B

orrowing plenty of characteristics from the Manhattan version in terms of core comforts and detailing, the Predator does away with the flybridge to make it leaner in look and weight. In exchange you have a carbon fibre automated “sky view” opening roof above the helm and guest areas. The main deck saloon is split between two spacious social areas, one for lounging

and the other with dinette seating, whilst the aft patio doors create a bright light barrier to the aft cockpit. Below deck, there are three spacious cabins – two doubles and a twin – alongside an extensive fully fitted galley area. The dedication of the lower deck to galley and guest cabins provides well for longer stays on board of friends and family. There is also an additional cabin arrangement for one crew member.

Fittings and equipment throughout reflect the Sunseeker high standards approach with the adoption only of first class, from top brand galley appliances to navigation aids spanning GPS, chart plotter and radar, through to tactile engine and trim tab controls. Options on the deck layout give further choice and the teak planked hydraulic aft platform may sport a tender, jetski or other toys. This stunning new release joins the high performance line however it can still comfortably fulfil the role of family boat. For more images, full specifications and principal characteristics visit

A MORE BEAUTIFUL FORM OF POWER MASERATI GRANCABRIO SPORT Mustering 450 horsepower under the bonnet, the new Maserati GranCabrio Sport announces its arrival with a sound that resonates in your soul. With tighter, highly responsive suspension and handling, black oval exhaust pipes, side spoilers and Astro rims, it will make you feel as good as it sounds.

It has been a particularly productive year with two

major showcases at the Sydney International and Mandurah boat show.
