Sunseeker’s Predator 57 MKII will make its world debut in Cannes in September.

Sunseeker International will bring eight models to the Cannes Yachting Festival Sept. 12-17, including the Predator 57 MKII, which will make its world debut at the show.

The British manufacturer will display its range of motor yachts, with three making their show debuts as part of 500 yachts, 500 exhibitors and over 50,000 visitors.

The new Manhattan 66, 68 Sport Yacht and the 131 Yacht will all be unveiled in Cannes.

The Predator 57 MKII, making its world premier, is an evolution of the Predator 57. It features pillar-less windows that let in ample natural light. Additionally, the transom is available with a “mini beach club,” an option first introduced on the Manhattan 52 last year. It includes a built-in barbecue, overhead shower and fold-down transom seating. The saloon door lowers to create a single-level entertainment area so people can enjoy the open aft cockpit or some shade beneath the hardtop.

The boat achieves speeds up to 46 mph, depending on the engine and drive option chosen. It features six berths in three cabins, and an additional crew cabin for one.

The full-beam master cabin is located amidship with an ensuite head, lounge seating and vanity space.
