Sun­seeker is get­ting very good at this Sport Yacht game. The new 74 is its best-look­ing model yet. By sink­ing the top deck’s floor into the saloon’s deck­head and us­ing a low-pro­file smoked glass aero­screen you would barely know it’s there when viewed from sea-level. But climb up the steps and you’ll find a sur­pris­ingly big fly­bridge with a dinette, lots of seat­ing set at the cor­rect height and a well-equipped helm sta­tion. The only com­pro­mise is the lack of a wet bar – just a fridge drawer for drinks un­der the aft bench.

The rest of the Sport Yacht fol­lows a sim­i­lar pat­tern to the Preda­tor 74. That means a big cock­pit that links to the saloon with the aid of a drop-down door, a smaller sun­roof over the in­side helm, and the same lay­out be­low, com­pris­ing three cab­ins and a gal­ley. It has MTU diesels on shafts which will thrust it along at up to 40 knots. CON­TACT Sun­seeker Lon­don. Tel +44 (0)207 3550980 www.sun­

Sun­seeker has made a real ef­fort to min­imise the vis­ual in­ter­fer­ence of the fly­bridge

De­spite be­ing a sports­bridge the top deck of the 74 is spa­cious and well equipped
