At the Sydney International Boat Show this year the Boat Advice team was able to view the Sunseeker San Remo, Predator 80 and Manhattan 55 all being showcased for the first time in Sydney,

Other SunseekerĀ  models on display included the Manhattan 63 and 73 will also join the line-up giving visitors to the Sunseeker stand the opportunity to view the very high level of design and craftsmanship that Sunseeker is renowned for.

The Sunseeker Predator 80 was certainly a highlight, as we boarded the vessel for a personal tour by Nick Lean (Sunseeker UK) we were able to see the aft tender garage being raised and lowered for easy launch and retrieval of the PWC or Inaflatable boat of your choice.

There is ample seatingĀ  on the aft deck which boasts a U shape lounge with a beautiful timber table surrounded by aft facing deck chairs.


Moving in to the main saloon we were able to really see what makes the Predator 80 special, there is enough room for a large U shape lounge, dining table for 6, a cocktail cabinet and up front the large helm with comfortable seating for 2.

Nick Lean explained to us that the Predator range continues to evolve however the shape and lines are always easy to spot with small changes giving the Predator its sleek, racing styling.


There is also a retractable carbon fibre roof and large hullside panoramic glass which affords a wonderful view of your location.

The master bedroom is the epitome of luxury and a highlight is the large glass windows which allows light in to the room but also makes the water feel so close.

Powered by two huge diesel engines, the Predator 80 can cruise at 30 knots or go flat our at 45 knots!
