Sunseeker Predator 65
The Sunseeker Predator 65 joins the range of Predator models from 55 to 74 feet length overall. It’s offered with Volvo Penta’s IPS1200 or IPS1350 powerplants, providing what Sunseeker says is a top-end speed of 35 knots.
Owners have options with this boat, including the ability to add a wet bar or extended lounge seating aft. Belowdecks, owners can choose three staterooms for a maximum of six guests, an open-plan owner’s office, or a lower-deck galley or salon.
The tender garage can be specified as a beach club with free-standing furniture, a rain shower, lighting and built-in speakers. Draft on the Predator 65 is a Bahamas-ready 5 feet, 3 inches, and fuel capacity is 924 gallons.
Vicem Tuna Master 37 CC
Vicem Yachts in Turkey is teasing a new line of center-console boats called the Tuna Master series. The first model will be the Tuna Master 37 CC, built in fiberglass—and also offered as an express cruiser. Each version will be available with dual- or triple-outboard engine packages from 300 to 450 hp.
A top-end speed of 45 knots is projected with optional powerplants, while standard twin 300 hp outboards are expected to produce a top hop of 40-plus knots. Vicem says range for the Tuna Master 37 CC will exceed 350 nautical miles, with a Seakeeper gyrostabilizer on board for guest comfort. Carbon fiber and teak trim will be used in the design to create a yachtlike finish, and the hardtop will be built of carbon fiber too.
Alia Yachts 196
Vripack in the Netherlands designed this 196-foot vessel that Alia Yachts in Turkey has sold, with delivery scheduled in 2024. The owner is an experienced yachtsman who requested an ice-class hull for exploring the world with his family.
Interior volume will be 810 gross tons with seven staterooms, including a master forward on the upper deck with a walk-in closet, an owner’s lounge and a private foredeck. The six remaining guest staterooms (two with twin berths and four with double berths) will be belowdecks, all accessible via an elevator that goes up to the yacht’s sun deck. Aft, the beach club will include a massage room, gymnasium, dive store, steam shower and what Alia calls a “chill-out zone.”
Azimut Verve 42
The Azimut Verve 42 got plenty of attention during its world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Florida a few months ago. It’s a sibling to the Verve 47, which was designed for US yachtsmen and has sold at least 50 hulls to date. Even before anyone saw the Verve 42, Azimut had already sold 10 of the boats.
With triple Mercury 450R outboards, the Verve 42 has a cruising speed of 33 knots and a top hop of 45 knots, according to the builder. The hull design is by Michael Peters, who has long been known for performance powerboats. Interior and exterior styling are by Francesco Struglia, adding Azimut’s Italian DNA to the package. For overnights, the boat can sleep as many as four people with one head.
The signature feature on the new Pearl 72 is the existence of two master staterooms on board. One is forward with a private entrance, while the other is a full-beam space amidships. The builder sees this layout as an ideal solution for couples who want to co-own a yacht, or for couples who cruise regularly with other couples.
Guests are accommodated in two additional staterooms, each with a double berth. And there should be lots of natural light in those spaces, with exterior designer Bill Dixon having expanded the use of glass in the hull. Also note the full-length flybridge, giving owners options for how they want to lay out and use that space. Top speed, according to the builder, is 32 knots with optional 1,600 hp MTU engines.
