The Sunseeker Predator 57 has plenty of party tricks but how does it perform on the water? Read our exclusive sea trial review to find out

Never mind though, this gave us the opportunity to see the other side to the Predator 57’s character – the shut-the-door-and-go winter cruiser.
As easily as you can peel back the outside and expose yourself to the elements you can also shut everything tight, turn the heating up and insulate yourself from them.
Not only was the winter chill kept at bay but so too was the rumble of the twin Volvo Penta D13 900hp engines, meaning we could maintain conversation at a civilized volume even when charging along at the top speed of 34 knots.
If that’s not fast enough there is a 45-knot, Arneson-propelled twin MAN 1,200hp version and you can also have it with IPS.
