SUNSEEKER WINS ASIA BOATING AWARD FOR ‘BEST SPORTS CRUISER UP TO 55 FEET’
Sunseeker International is pleased to announce it has been awarded the ‘Best Sports Cruiser – up to 55 Feet’ for its new Predator 50 at the Asia Boating Awards.
The prestigious awards were held on the opening night of the Singapore Yacht Show on 12 April and serve as a benchmark of excellence in the Asia-Pacific region. With 26 categories, the list of nominees came from online polling of Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating readers, with the winners determined by a panel of esteemed judges.
Presented during a lavish ceremony at ONE°15 Marina Club, one of Asia’s most vibrant marinas, the Awards hosted a select group of VIPs, UHNWIs and key personalities in the yachting industry.
The award-winning innovative Predator 50 which launched at Dusseldorf Boat Show in January this year, sets a new benchmark for the category. Exemplifying the latest in Sunseeker’s cutting-edge design, every detail of the Predator 50 has been designed to perfection from its seamless sliding roof, open-plan living spaces and cockpit glazing that can be fully open or closed. What truly sets it apart however are its multitude of entertainment spaces, integral garage and award-winning ‘Beach Club’ concept, all without compromise.
While the Predator 50 boasts truly class-leading design and luxury, performance is still at the heart of this true sports cruiser which is fitted with the new Volvo Penta D8-600 engines mated to shaft drives with optional electric steering and joystick manoeuvrability.
Receiving the award on behalf of Sunseeker was Gordon Hui, the Chairman of Sunseeker Asia Group, who also won the ‘Personality of the year’ Award.
The ‘Personality of the year’ Award recognises the contribution of individuals who have done outstanding work in terms of promoting Asia as a boating destination while developing new boating talent in the region and enhancing Asia’s boating facilities.
Sean Robertson, Sales Director at Sunseeker International, said: “We are delighted and honoured to have won this prestigious award for the new Predator 50. Its cutting-edge design and luxury leave little to be desired in a modern sports cruiser and this has been reflected in its incredible popularity with new and existing customers.
“We also want to pass on our congratulations to Gordon for winning the ‘Personality of the year’ award, we are thrilled he has been recognised for his hard work and dedication to Asia’s boating community. This is richly deserved”
