Luxury yacht maker Sunseeker has teamed up with performance car marque Caterham to provide the ultimate millionaire’s exhibit on the first day of the London International Boat Show.
Sunseeker debuted its £7.5m (€8.35) Predator 108 Special Edition yacht January 8, revealing an unusual twist in the yacht’s on-board garage – a Caterham Seven. The lightweight British sports car fits snugly into the garage area at the stern of the Predator, usually reserved for a small sports boat. Manufacturers believe the package is perfect for those looking to make the “transition from sea to land at glamorous locations, such as the harbours of Monaco, St Tropez and Cannes.”
“Our two companies have more in common than one might think at first, despite the disparity in vehicle size,” said Caterham Cars Managing Director, Ansar Ali. “Surely any Sunseeker owner would relish the chance to match their experience on the waves with the ultimate drive on the roads.”
The 108 ft (23.9m) Predator is the largest boat ever displayed inside the ExCeL centre and is capable of accommodating up to eight guests and four crew members – as well as a classic sports car. It has a range of 450 nautical miles and a top speed of 45 knots. Eighteen other global debuts are to be made at the show which ends January 17, including the Targa 58 Gran Tourismo, the 72-foot Princess 72 Motor yacht and the Discovery 50 Catamaran.
