We don't have the garage as we needed the space but it's got a very wide platform which carries the RIB well. Sunseeker has two series in that size range, the Predator's which are without flybridge and the Manhattan with flybridge. The 63 and 65 Manhattan have been dropped with the new 66.

-Historically they have issues with spidering gelcoats. Now, we were told they had addressed the issue and haven't seen any yet. We considered painting when new but decided to wait until we saw how it does. The issue was attributed to the cold damp conditions of the UK. Time will tell. We haven't seen spidering on any year models 2012 or later so perhaps solved. On 2005-2009 or so saw a lot of it.
-Light socket quality and standard bulbs, so we replaced them all and put in all LED's when new. We had no problems, but that was a criticism we were familiar with on the boats.
