Sunseeker launches two new yachts at the London Boat Show
by Tim Thomas
Following the launch of the Princess 32M, Sunseeker took an altogether less understated approach to launch two new models at the London Boat Show on Friday - the Predator 115 and the Manhattan 73. X-Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson was on hand to perform to a large crowd that gathered around the Sunseeker stand, and most were thankful that the yard chose an indoor launch given the vagaries of the weather outside.
This first Predator 115 features a muted and slightly minimalist interior but carries the aggressive styling of her sisters. She offers solid performance to over 30 knots. Sunseeker founder Robert Braithwaite was on hand to give BI an exclusive heads-up on future developments for the brand (see video below). Meanwhile, our correspondent Tom Isitt was recovering from a two-day boat test, having joined the 115 for the delivery from Poole on the south coast to London.
