After years of speculation, 24 months of development, 12 weeks in build and numerous hours of sea trials, Sunseeker has unveiled on time its brand-new high-performance day boat – the Hawk 38.

Returning to its performance roots and drawing on the company’s racing heritage, Sunseeker’s Hawk 38 is delivering an incredible top speed of up to 62 knots with a safe, comfortable but dynamic ride matched to exceptional turn-in and grip.

Combined with inflatable Hypalon 866 STAB® tubes and Mercury 400R engines, the new high-performance model performs effortlessly to a level not seen only a lot of vessels.

The cocooning helm station is centrally located, shielded by a beautifully resolved integrated double-curvature ventilated glass screen with a sweeping black carbon fibre hard top.

The console unit is fitted with a Simrad navigation system, consisting of the very latest 16-inch Evo 3 touch screen multifunction display with GPS and Wi-Fi capability. The Simrad screen gives access to the CZone® DC switching system to allow integrated control of all essential systems. Power-assisted steering is courtesy of the intelligent leather trimmed tilt steering wheel incorporating full control of the navigation system.

Its smooth-running hull is supported by the addition of four racing seats with shock absorbing mitigation; occupants can either sit or stand for optimal comfort and safety, thereby allowing owners to fully explore the limits of this boat’s performance.

The foredeck is complete with a sunbathing pad with elevated fixed headrests and an optional foredeck sail canopy. Aft facing u-shaped seating is centralised around a quick release carbon table that can be stowed in seconds. At the stern, there is a triple bench seat with the possibility for two drawer fridges located under.

Throughout the boat, there is multiple built-in storage such as a cavernous stowage locker with carbon fibre lid at the bow, which can be utilised for a plethora of toys including two SEABOBs with dedicated bulkhead-mounted charging units. The composite decking in platinum finish with white corking includes yet more stowage with a large central deck locker that can hold a life raft or inflatable paddleboard.

The first ten Hawk 38s will be part of a very special limited-edition series, in memory of Sunseeker’s founder, Robert Braithwaite CBE DL, who sadly passed away in March this year.

The Hawk 38, Sunseeker’s new high-performance day boat, was the last project Robert was involved with and therefore a fitting tribute to him. Each of the ten boats will carry a polished stainless steel plaque on the helm dashboard numbered from RB001 to RB010.

Commenting on the new limited-edition series, Sunseeker CEO, Andrea Frabetti said: “The legacy of the Sunseeker brand is built on developing performance boats such as the Hawk 38 – it’s in our DNA and something Robert was extremely passionate about having raced extensively in his early career. I am honoured to unveil this special edition series of the Hawk 38, a very fitting tribute to our founder.”
