Compact enough to easily fit into small harbours, yet big enough to accommodate two couples in no small amount of luxury, it’s not hard to see why the Sunseeker Predator 57 was a best-seller.

In this video, Nick Burnham shows us around this impressive hardtop sportscruiser, starting with the neat beach club area, which includes a barbecue and a fold-down seat for enjoying unimpeded views of the sunset over the water.

What’s more, the huge hardtop sunroof fully retracts, turning this from a sheltered all-weather cruiser to a sun-loving open boat in a matter of seconds – a feature that is invaluable in the UK’s notoriously unpredictable climate.
