Sunseeker Predator 82 SOUL MATES Listed With United Yacht Sales

By Robert Bowman | Posted On Mar 28, 2022

Some boats are simply meant to draw attention and do so rather effortlessly. The 2006 Sunseeker Predator 82 named SOUL MATES is such an example, giving off a Miami Beach vibe with a James Bond villain-esque attitude. The low-profile silhouette is aggressive and sexy, perfectly matched for the CAT-C32 1800HP twin engines that reach top speeds in the mid-30 knot range for the full Sunseeker effect. Known for high performance and seductive exteriors, Sunseeker Yachts perfectly blend customized construction methods, intelligent layouts, top quality equipment, and their signature provocative style.

SOUL MATES is a beautiful example of the Predator 82 and has recently become available for sale, located in Pompano Beach, Florida. United Yacht Sales professional broker John Blumenthal is representing the sellers who have enjoyed cruising this yacht in South Florida and the Keys. It has recently undergone an extensive re-fit, making it 'turn-key' ready for the new owners.

Several upgrades and improvements have been noted on SOUL MATES including new galley appliances, new helm electronics, new flooring, and much more to see. With less than 1,400 hours on the engines, this Sunseeker is ready to begin enjoying immediately, just in time for summer.

If you would like to set up an appointment to view SOUL MATES in person, please contact John at 1-772-215-2571

The Predator 82 is highly versatile, acting as both a formal entertainment yacht, to offshore luxury cruiser meant for longer trips to the islands. No space on board delivers this adaptability than the aft section of the yacht. The swim platform is electronically controlled and can easily be submerged into the water to assist with offloading from a tender to a launch point for scuba. There is an aft garage that can be used as tender storage or for water toys. Twin staircases lead to the cockpit which has both al fresco dining potential, as well as sunbathing opportunities.

The large aft sofa has been upgraded with new Sunbrella fabric and can be converted to an extra large sunpad. The color matches the sunpads on the foredeck and gives SOUL MATES a little flare to catch the eye. The cockpit is the party hub of the Predator 82 with a long list of features including 6 JL Audio speakers, a BBQ grill, an ice machine, sink, a quartz table with L-shaped seating, air-conditioning vents, and most noticeable, the canopy sunshade.

As striking as the exterior is, the interior is really where SOUL MATES shines. With a beam of nearly 20-feet, the salon on this Predator 82 is incredibly spacious with plenty of seating for all of your guests on board to socialize. The windshield, large glass cockpit doors, and the circular skylight in the hardtop allow in lots of natural light, as well as provide for excellent views. Overhead lights with additional BLUE LED accent lights set the mood in the evenings. 

New vinyl flooring and a new ceiling make this Sunseeker look almost completely new, while the Haier wine cooler and double U-shaped sofas give your guests lots of options for dining and socializing. A flat screen television can be raised or lowered into a cabinet by the push of a button.

The helm station features three large electric helm chairs along with a new, re-designed dashboard. The new electronics on SOUL MATES includes 3 Garmin GPSMAP 8616's, Garmin Sounder/Plotter/Radar, GPSMAP 7408, and Garmin Reactor 40 Auto Pilot. Also included at the helm are the bow/stern thruster controls, the ZF electronic side-by-side controls, trim tabs, and a side door adjacent to the helm for easy access to the side decks when docking.

Heading down the spiral staircase to the lower deck, you are greeted to an open foyer area with a full galley. Everything you need to execute a formal dinner party or just feed some guests while entertaining is here. Some of the features in the galley include a quartz countertop space, Impava oven, Frigoboat fridge and freezer, additional fridge drawers, Bosch dishwasher, Electrolux washer/dryer, and an abundance of cabinet storage.

SOUL MATES has a 4-bedroom, 4-head layout, along with a captain's quarters. Every cabin on board is spacious with plenty of storage and comfort, allowing for longer on-water vacations.
