The combination of performance and luxury works well aboard the Predator 68. She’s exciting to drive, and I can easily see how with all her amenities, this Sunseeker could take her owners and guests around in grand style with real flair. Part of that is courtesy of her racy good looks, and part is the notable woodwork and fine fit and finish found throughout her interior. As far as performance is concerned, the 68 definitely puts on a good show.
Sunseeker had equipped the 68 with amenities for fun on the water. But what about the living accommodations? I found a three-stateroom, three-head configuration designed around the saloon and galley—sort of a “great room” concept. The forepeak and the master, which is aft and amidships of the saloon, both have en suite heads, while the twin-berth stateroom, whose entrance door is aft and to starboard of the saloon, utilizes the day head there. I found ample stowage areas in all the quarters for those long trips. For example, the forepeak’s double berth has stowage beneath as well as a drawer in the island base and three cabinets on each side, and there’s a closet to boot. The guest cabin has under-berth stowage and a closet. The master also has stowage beneath the double berth as well as a pair of closets.
The interior finish is of beautifully crafted cherry. The saloon’s generous seating area, featuring a sweeping leather couch and hinged-leaf table—closed it’s an intimate dinner for four; open, a banquet for eight—is to starboard. The galley, with long granite countertop, separate undercounter Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, four-burner Bosch electric stovetop, and Miele dishwasher, is to port. There are lots of cabinets and drawer space here, plus a Whirlpool microwave and built-in Black & Decker coffee maker.
While paying attention to creature comforts and practical design elements on the outside and inside, Sunseeker didn’t forget about the hands-on skipper or owner. Access to the engine room is via a large hatch in the helm area, and once down there, I found plenty of room for such maintenance items as fluid checks and filter access. However, the fully stand-up area does slope down as you go aft; this is to accommodate the garage, so some bending is required there. Should the difficulties be far aft, such as problems with the steering quadrant, or if more headroom is required, removing the garage’s two-piece sole gives complete access to the engine room. It’s a job best done at the dock and will most likely involve two people.
