If speed is your thing, then Sunseeker’s new 38-foot dayboat, The Hawk 38, might just be up your alley. Tipped with a pair of 400-hp Mercury Verado outboards, the souped-up dayboat has a 62-knot top-end, according to the builder.
“The Sunseeker in-house design and engineering teams have excelled at delivering a remarkable boat, something truly daring,” said Sunseeker CEO Christian Marti. “Every detail has been designed with performance in mind; from the purpose-made triple-stepped hull with its incredible pedigree to the elevated level of advanced technology on board, this new model bristles with innovation. The Hawk 38 delivers ultimate day-boat appeal, its searing performance and extraordinary ride will ensure it’s always first to the best anchorage or beach restaurant.”
The boat is an unusual design in that it combines topside-mounted Hypalon tubes for additional grip and buoyancy in turns with a triple-stepped hull to ventilate its slick underwater running surfaces.
Forward is an expansive sunpad with a connected U-shaped seating area while aft behind the center console are four military-style jump seats for a secure feeling underway at speed. An additional transom bench rounds out the Hawk 38’s seating, and it has a pull-out fridge beneath it. An enclosed head sits under the center console, with entry through a forward-mounted door.
The Hawk 38 will make its world premiere at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival in Cannes, France. You can learn more about the new model here.
