Predator 447-R

Hi-Performance with a touch of luxury. This is no ordinary High performance V-bottom - This is a race built, fully custom, luxury offshore machine.

Hull

The 447 has a perfectly designed V-Bottom hull, this includes a quad step hull-aeriation technology, running pad, and a notched transom. This hull design refines a thin line between running fast, taking hard turns, and running in heavy weather offshore conditions. The hydrodynamic design, which has many hours of testing, and years of experience behind to make this well-balanced and fine-tuned hull.

Layup

To build a boat that can withstand the excessive force of impact it is to compete in wave beating endurance as well as speed trials on flat water, a key feature in design is the hull and deck lamination process. It all comes down to speed vs durability. After many years of testing and experience with powerboats and raceboats running in open oceans with slow motion cameras mounted in the hull, g-force measurements all over the hull, and helicopter photoshoots. Our decision on the lamination process is therefore thoroughly tested and improved over the years. The layup process consists of Vinylester resins, bi-tri-and quad directional hybrid Kevlar, carbonfibre reinforcements and high density divinycell coring.
