Sunseeker announces re-opening of operations and extended warranty

A phased return to work for all its employees to start as early as next week….

While certain sectors within the UK begin to return to work, Sunseeker International (Sunseeker) has announced that it is implementing a phased return to work for all its employees starting as early as next week. 

Given the complexity of operations, employees will be brought back in a controlled manner that will allow the British superyacht manufacturer to move to full production over the coming weeks. The phased approach allows Sunseeker to ensure that all the safety measures that have been put in place work seamlessly, providing employees with the confidence that they are coming back to a safe place of work.

 According to The Superyacht Agency , Sunseeker currently has five deliveries scheduled for 2020, so the restarting of production is welcome to both the superyacht industry and the UK economy, and will allow them to deliver these boats previously in build, as well as progress with additional orders.

Sunseeker has reported that there may well be a delayed season, with owners keen to take delivery of boats previously ordered, and a catch-up plan will attempt to reduce the backlog.

"Our goal now is to achieve safe efficient production over the coming weeks so we can deliver boats to our customers who understandably, are keen to get afloat this summer" - Andrea Frabetti, CEO - Sunseeker

“We are excited to be getting back to work. Our goal now is to achieve safe efficient production over the coming weeks so we can deliver boats to our customers who understandably, are keen to get afloat this summer. In parallel, our new model development programme continues at a pace in order that we can offer the very latest range which is on course to double in size by 2022," commented CEO, Andrea Frabetti.

To ensure the safety of employees, suppliers, visitors and finished boats, Sunseeker has been working in close cooperation with all departments. Sunseeker’s in-house Health & Safety team has defined strict protocols, working practices and guidelines for all employees to support a safe environment, wherever they work within the business.

Earlier this year, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Sunseeker donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust . The PPE equipment donation consisted of 400 face masks and 4000 gloves. Sunseeker will now be issuing PPE to its employees, providing guidance on how to use PPE, and factories have been laid out with one-way systems and wide thoroughfares to ensure social distancing is maintained. Meanwhile, additional hygiene and cleaning stations have been introduced companywide to ensure equipment and tools can be methodically cleaned whilst boats are sanitized thoroughly at every stage of production and then ‘deep-cleaned’ again prior to hand-over.

Separately, all Warranty and Parts functions will be fully operational during June, ensuring that customers receive the service they require as they return to using their boats. In support of their inability to use their boat over recent weeks, Sunseeker is offering an extended two-month factory warranty for any boat in warranty as of 23/03/20 – an industry first.

"I’d like to personally thank our clients, employees and suppliers for their patience during this enforced period of shutdown. We are fortunate to be able to return to work, to do what we love and deliver on the passion we all have for this industry.

"Now, more than ever, the country needs us to do what we do best which will help deliver exports and support the economy. As a proud UK manufacturer, we are eager to play our own small part in returning it to prosperity,” concluded Frabetti.

Sunseeker Yachts: The Complete Guide to Sunseeker Yachts

sunseeker yacht warranty

Table of Contents

Sunseeker yachts are James Bond-worthy. They have dazzled screens in  Die Another Day, Casino Royale,  and  Quantum of Solace .

Tuxedo on, martini in hand, you too can experience what a luxury yacht feels like with  Boatsetter .

Headquartered in the seaside town of Poole, England, Sunseeker is the largest UK-based luxury yacht, maker. Originally named Poole Power Boats, Sunseeker was the brainchild of brothers Robert and John Braithwaite way back in the heady year of 1969. Harnessing revolutionary materials and technology, the Braithwaite brothers dreamt of building boats of the future. Their early designs were tailored to a handful of customers, keen to embrace the newfound freedoms of the decade.

But things got off to a bumpy start. Across the pond in the United States of America, the owner of Poole Powerboats, Owens Cruisers, decided to close their British operation down and focus instead on domestic production. This was when Robert saw an opportunity. With a bundle of hastily borrowed cash, he drove to Owen’s offices in the sleepy town of Arundel and successfully negotiated the purchase of their boat molds.

Although a small problem remained: he had never built a seagoing craft before.

First came the Sovereign 17 in 1971, followed closely by the Sovereign 20. By the close of the decade, Sunseeker yachts were selling well in the UK and northern Europe. Sunseeker had arrived.

The rest is history.

A leap of  courage  and  imagination  inspired Sunseeker in its early days. In fact, few manufacturers have pioneered as many innovations in the yachting world as Sunseeker. These include duoprops, stern -driven race-bred Arneson surface drives, and a water jet powering system – previously thought impossible.

Now, these bold traits have become the hallmarks of a Sunseeker yacht. Above all, a Sunseeker yacht will give customers exactly what they want. Its expert teams have designed unprecedented and ultimately  successful  yachts to realize their dreams, ensuring that each one is as unique as its customers. This refreshing and prolific stance puts distance between them and their competitors. Not to mention bringing  fabulous  vessels to the waves.  

Capitalizing on the skills passed down from generation to generation, each sunseeker is a triumph in  craftsmanship . While harnessing the best of what digital production and automated assembly have to offer, Sunseeker yachts remain  hand-built  and  hand-finished . Why? Because there is no better way of making the unique, remarkable, and ultimately exceptional.

The Sunseeker Range

Boatsetter’s unique  peer-to-peer  boat renting service offers a range of new and pre-owned Sunseeker yachts. A weekend excursion, exciting day out, or a well-deserved week away (or several), Sunseeker’s expansive range of yachts can satisfy every need. There is the cheetah-like  Predator  up to the magnificent  Superyacht  series. Experience the luxury and technological mastery of a Sunseeker today!

All of Boatsetter’s rentals come with a  knowledgeable captain  and crew to guide you on your exciting yacht adventure and are available from sites across the USA, Europe and beyond. Many Boatsetter rentals offer the opportunity to enhance your experience with jet skis, electronic surfboards, and sea bobs to get splashing on. 

Sport Yacht

Sleek and powerful

Magnificently crafted, expertly finished and composed of raw, unassailable quality materials, every Sunseeker Sport Yacht seamlessly blends elegance and performance. Their two most popular sport yachts are the  74 Sports Yacht  and the  65 Sports Yacht .

The  74 Sports Yacht  is the best of both worlds. This beauty is enhanced by cutting-edge technology and elegant finishes throughout and everything you and your many guests could wish for. Speaking of which, it can accommodate eight passengers plus two crew members.

In a world where distance is everything. The  74 Sports Yacht  has a freshwater capacity of 800 liters (211 US Gal.) and a fuel capacity of 4,800 litres (1,268 US Gal.). This lavishes drivers with a range of up to 900 nautical miles and maximum speeds of up to 38 knots.

Sport, sleek and wonderfully spacious best describe the interior of the  74 Sports Yacht . This is a yacht built to impress. It has copious amounts of entertaining space, including plenty of comfortable seating, large sun pads (both back and front), and the bridge deck seductively shades the cockpit .

The newer  65 Sport Yacht  is a trailblazer. And inside it, you will be one too. Take your holidays to new heights with the yacht’s direct sea access, bar, fridge, BBQ, and free-standing seating. Together these are the perfect spaces for water-loving nymphs and party animals.

20.50 meters (67′ 2″) in length and with a beam of 5.10 (16′ 8″), space is not a premium on the  65 Sport Yacht . With three cabins – including a full-beam master stateroom – it can comfortably accommodate up to 7 guests and 1 crew in absolute luxury. The main deck has a large C shaped sofa and offers options of additional seating with a TV. All of which amounts to a versatile space that adapts seamlessly to all kinds of socializing and adrenaline-seeking.

When you wish to tear up the waves, the innovative Sky Helm of the  65 Sport Yacht , complete with IPS driving joystick, is there. It allows the boat to be sailed while the driver is standing in an upright position, or it can be lowered to fall perfectly into outstretched arms.

The water shark

The Predator range is mythical. Coming in sizes from 50′ to 77′, every boat is a head -turner. Sunseeker has ensured it is strikingly styled, expertly made, and nimble on its hull . The fastest predator models will achieve speeds over 45 knots.

Winner of the prestigious 2019 Motor Boat Awards, the  Predator 50  is ideal for spontaneous adventures or the afternoon adrenaline rush.

Its interior is awe-inspiring. There is plenty of space to host friends, family, or corporate colleagues with space for up to six guests. Plus, each cabin is designed to impress. Sunseeker’s British interior designer’s attention to detail has created the perfect blend of comfort and elegance, especially with their open spaces and large windows, which allow the magical light of a summer sunset to flood in. This is enhanced by an open plan design that boasts a fully opening hardtop roof and fully opening cockpit glazing – bringing the outside inside.

And let us not forget the  Predator 60 Evo . The first model of Sunseeker’s major new product development plan, this bold yacht is tailored for practicality and performance. On the waves, the  Predator 60 Evo  packs a punch. It can glide across the waves at speeds of up to 32 knots. This is matched with its sharp, impressive figure, which allows for unrivaled agility on the open water. The sporty posture of the  Predator 60 Evo  is complemented by a bold, modern interior design. The white finish of the interior and furnishings only aid this sleek feeling.

The conquerors of distance

In this collection are the  Manhattan 68, Manhattan 66, Manhattan   52,  and the  Manhattan 55 .

Fitted with Volvo Penta d13-800 engines, the  Manhattan 55  can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 250 nautical miles. Or, if you need a speedy getaway, it can be cranked up to an excess of 30 knots at full throttle. Think where you could go with that fuel capacity of 2,200 liters (580 US gal.).

An attractive aspect of the  Manhattan 55  that truly distinguishes it from the crowd is the revolutionary glass-cockpit and gallery window, which can be dropped with the touch of a button, creating a fantastic inside/outside environment. 

Speaking of design capabilities, the exceptional yacht has been meticulously crafted to maximize comfort and cruising, as well as providing owners with a vast array of social spaces – something typically limited to larger yachts.

Length: 21 m (69′). Beam: 5.25 m (17.3′). Range: 550 nautical miles. Maximum speed: 32 knots. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, these are the specs of the  Manhattan 68 . Building upon the exceptional family of award-winning Manhattan models, this yacht redefines luxury and relaxation. Across the main deck, keen attention has been paid to create social spaces fit for a king. It can accommodate up to 8 guests and two crew members.

Performance

Built for speed

Sunseeker’s Performance range does what it says on the tin: perform. Capitalizing on Sunseeker’s incredible racing heritage, every boat in this series is a masterpiece in speed. The Performance range dares you to dare, like never before.  

Following several long years of intense speculation, the  Hawk 38  arrived on the yachting scene with much fanfare. It had been almost 20 years since the British shipyard had last launched a proper performance boat. And it was worth the wait. Motorboat & Yachting Magazine called it Sunseeker’s  coolest boat ever . Boasting a range of up to 200 nautical miles, the  Hawk 38  has a maximum speed of 62 knots. Yes, you read that right, 62 knots.

No wonder the  Hawk 38  has won 43 World Speed Records and 55 World Championships.

Coming in bright Marlin Blue, fiery Sunfast Red or ice cool Super Jet Black, the  Hawk 38  can dazzle onlookers on the beach. Its Spradling Marine Silvertex coated fabrics are engineered and tested to resist the toughest marine conditions, ensuring that the vessel remains in its prime.

The  Hawk 38  is packed with an array of high-tech features; 

  • Inflatable STAB (stabilizing tubes)to keep the boat stable against whatever odds the ocean may throw at it
  • Simrad 16″ Navigation display
  • Smart, adjustable steering wheel with function buttons to control it
  • Mercury Verado dual-engine Hydraulic Power Steering 
  • Mercury Vessel View link, which interfaces with engine data to display engine temperature, pressure, engine alarms, fuel tank level and engine battery voltages via an app. .

Sunseeker’s  Superyachts  are the largest and most extravagant amongst all their ranges. Inspiring and adaptable, these yachts represent the Sunseeker’s knack for style, design, practicality and ingenuity  par excellence . At present, there are four beauties in this range, each one a tribute to British engineering:  50M Ocean ,  52M Ocean ,  131 Yacht  and the  116 Yacht.   

When Sunseeker launched the  50M Ocean , they said that a ‘new dawn had arrived.’ The tri-deck yacht offers beautiful space and volume. It can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins under the standard configuration yet has upgradable options for 12 guests – depending on your needs. Indeed, the already opulent interior spaces of the  50M Ocean  can be styled to each buyer’s personal preferences thanks to Sunseeker’s renowned ‘Bespoke’ Service.

Read more about this customization service  here . It is beyond par.

Space and flexibility characterise the theme of the  50M Ocean . It contains a wealth of compelling features, all to maximize the pleasure of passengers. Typically belonging to larger craft only, there is a plunge pool on the main deck and a delectable beach club at the rear of the yacht. This amounts to a fantastic area for revealing in the water.

Another tri-deck, the Sunseeker  131 Yacht  epitomizes all that the British shipyard has got right over the decades. Grandiose yet gracious, this behemoth can sleep up to 12 guests (and 9 crew) in sheer luxury and comfort. It has a range of up to 1,600 nautical miles at 12 knots. Just think of where you could go in that distance.

The interior is finished with ultra-modern materials and techniques. While on the upper deck, you will find the sky lounge, cocktail bar, and Skydeck, which commands awe-inspiring views of the night’s sky; the main deck is complete with a lounge, dining area, and full galley . 

Like the  50M Ocean , the  131 Yacht  comes with the ‘Bespoke’ Service, meaning that the interior is fully customizable according to the buyer’s taste. This is the king of all yachts as impressive out in the open water as it is in the harbor.

Sunseeker Superhawk 55 Review (2023 Edition)

The Hawk flies again, and it looks sensational. The new Superhawk 55 takes Sunseeker back to its powerboat routes but adds plenty of onboard flair and a few surprises.

Sunseeker Superhawk 55 Review (2023 Edition) image 1

Design & Build

Sunseeker Superhawk design

Few if any other yacht builders have a sports pedigree to match Sunseeker. Still based on the Jurassic Coast of England, Sunseeker was born out of powerboat racing around the British Isles, teaming up with renowned race designers like Don Shead and Fabio Buzzi on its high-octane journey. 

Put simply, sportsboats matter to Sunseeker and you can see that it has poured so much time, thought and know-how into this boat. From the moment you board, with its neat Seabob boot, countersunk tender garage and tidy fairleads, the Superhawk is working.

The cockpit and interior keep up the pace, loaded with features and a surprising amount of space. The design allows the cockpit to run full beam, maximising the 4.9m (16ft) on offer. Smart side doors hinge out onto a deep, walkaround-style forward deck section to ensure practicality remains, no climbing over slippery foredecks here, but the design still somehow ensures the interior below is unaffected. In fact, the space below decks is surprisingly good. This is the biggest Hawk yet and it really feels it inside. 

New Hawk, New Times

Since the last Superhawk arrived, this market has gone through a revolution of speed and hedonism, fuelled by the superyacht tender market. Where once it was rare to find a $1m, 50ft sportsboat, it is now commonplace. So Sunseeker had to deliver something special. And it has. But one area where it has decided to remain conservative is on speed.

No one is going to suggest 40 knots is slow, but clearly Sunseeker has decided to make the Superhawk usably quick rather than outrageously so. It all goes back to its real-world offshore racing days. Sunseeker knows that anything much past 40 knots requires a very different mindset onboard, one where safety and skill at the helm massively increase. It decided to opt for a Volvo Penta IPS-950 725hp pod drive installation to deliver fast, efficient and very usable performance.

Others in this field are pushing way past 50 knots, with Tecnomar’s recent 63 Lamborghini collaboration hitting 60 knots courtesy of twin 2,000hp engines. It all depends on what you want and, more importantly, where you boat. If there are waves, 40-knots is plenty.

Sunseeker Superhawk design

Interior Accommodation

Sunseeker Superhawk interior

Hawk models of the past were always more about sleek lines than spacious interiors and having experienced the sharp exterior and innovative deck design here, we were not ready for the space that opens up below decks. 

A massive lower salon greets you. The headroom is incredible as is the finish, combining to create a modern, architectural feel that is also very inviting. The level of design that has been poured into the salon is outstanding, a mix of Zaha Hadid and supercar. The towering headroom is capped by an atrium-like glass deckhead with an industrial, tubular lighting matrix across it. It’s new, unique and very Superhawk.  

Super Cruiser

It is hard to see the Superhawk as anything other than a very cool and capable weekender but the galley and two ensuite cabins certainly have other ideas. There is a full-height fridge freezer, cooker, hob and even a dishwasher. Storage is tight, but the cockpit will be able to take plenty of overspill, as we will come to. 

The owner’s cabin lies forward, with an easily accessed double berth, a TV and hull windows. It feels big, as does the wardrobe and ensuite, with a proper shower stall. That still leaves a separate, full-beam mid-cabin for guests. There is a good entranceway but not quite full-standing headroom around the berth. The clearance above the bed is good and it feels like a proper cabin with its hull-side glass and ensuite.

Sunseeker Superhawk interior

Helm Station

Sunseeker Superhawk helm

A race boat helm for this Superhawk feels right and looks superb. The central helm position, with co-pilots to each side, allows the skipper to look directly over the bow, snug bolster seats looking after you very well. 

The digital cone-dials are a great touch, adding another hit of powerboat cool, with two big MFDs taking care of the navigation and engine data. As an IPS boat you get joystick control, but also a bow thruster, so handling this boat around the marina won't be an issue even if short-handed.

Deck lifestyle

Sunseeker Superhawk deck

If the interior was the surprise, the deck is the gift that keeps on giving. Watch our show tour of the Superhawk to best understand the versatility and functionality at play here, but the main stories are the cockpit seating design and walkaround decks. 

The cockpit, topped by a graphite hardtop, is probably the best and most practical example yet of the sliding seat concept. The best because it works so well and the most practical because its simple design will keep on doing so, while also allowing a colossal amount of stowage to be worked in.

The standard layout creates a spread-out surround of seating leading onto a sunpad. The pad lifts and hinges to create various backrests or create a bench seat for the cockpit. The two forward L-shape seats can then pull in to make a dining area for a good 10 people, the table opening and revolving to look after them. But there is more than seating going on here, the L-shape seats pulling away to present a line of deep lockers to each side. 

The cockpit is served by a broad wet bar and grill, with plenty of cold storage, easily good enough to look after the expansive dining set-up and with a TV set within so you can watch films or sport al fresco. 

Side Issues

The side deck doors will grab plenty of headlines and rightly so. They are the feature that allows the cockpit to push out full-beam and are perfectly placed for the helm, allowing the crew to get forward quickly and very safely. The door mechanism looks fabulous, with giant stainless steel hinges, but the handle to operate the door needs some more clearance to get your fingers around it.

The side decks are excellent. Deep and wide they lead effortlessly forward and make the boat perfect for those with younger children - not always the case in this market. There is one more surprise on the foredeck, the sunpad sliding forward to create a footwell for a lounge set-up. A miraculous addition considering the headroom you enjoy below.

Sunseeker Superhawk deck

Value For Money

The big benefit of not going for fire-breathing race engines and surface drives is the cost saving that can be passed on to the customer. The pod drives and installation are no different to all the other boats that use the IPS-950 so that means efficient performance and sensible servicing, as opposed to high performance motors just waiting to punish you at the fuel pontoon or every time a service interval arrives. 

The base price (at the time of writing) is £1.4 million ex VAT, which no doubt will rise as the most desirable options are added but for something so stylish and useable that feels like relatively good value, certainly in contrast to some of its more exotic rivals.

Sunseeker Superhawk deck

The biggest ever Hawk doesn’t disappoint. It looks fast while standing still, delivers fantastic deck lifestyle and a tardis of an interior that belies the sleek powerboat style. 40-knot performance might not grab any headlines but if the latest Sunseeker hull design allows all of that speed to be used, this boat will rank as one the the best sportsboats out there and another Hawk great. 

Reasons to Buy

  • Excellent deck design
  • 40-knot IPS-950 performance
  • Surprisingly spacious interior
  • Central race-style helm station

Things to Consider

  • Lack of engine options
  • Door mechanism

This 50ft sportsboat market is now hugely competitive. But if you want a performance boat that also functions as a cruising yacht the field narrows.

We have discounted the very many 17m hardtop sports yacht models as they form a different market and, if we did include them, we would be here all day.

Two obvious rivals stand out, for different reasons. The Wally 58 is another IPS boat hitting around 40 knots and near identical on size to the Superhawk. But it is a Wally so there are three IPS-700 drives and the styling is, well, Wally. It arguably out-spectacles the Superhawk on deck, with its extending cockpit and spread of seating beneath its stealthy hardtop. But there is less accommodation below. The salon and forward cabin are just as special as the Sunseeker’s but the optional guest quarters are tight.

The other name that any sports-lux review should include is Riva, it’s Rivale model is a more conventional design onboard, with a similarly two cabin layout to the Sunseeker, but it looks utterly beautiful outside and will hit 38 knots with the biggest 1,200hp MAN engine option.

BOAT WARRANTY, ARE THEY ALL IDENTICAL…

BOAT WARRANTIES,

ARE THEY ALL THE SAME, WHAT IS IT REALLY ABOUT!

In this period of confinement, it is a perfect time for advice and reflection so I draw your attention to the guarantees that are offered when buying a boat built outside of North America.

sunseeker yacht warranty

The concept of warranty is a well-established principle for goods acquired here in North America, of course, including boats. It is recognized that when purchasing  a new product a minimum guarantee of 12 months is offered by the manufacturer of the product, but assumed by its local intermediary, the seller of the product.

Fortunately, major problems are not not the rule on a new boat, but should a problem arise, that is when you would rely on the warranty.

It should be noted that the usual 12-month warranty that applies to the vessel is not always given or assumed by the manufacturer, particularly for vessels offered in North America but built outside of North America .

sunseeker yacht warranty

Indeed, there are several European boat manufacturers that sell their boats to dealers established in North America with the concept: AS IS  when it leaves the factory, without warranty.  Meaning, the manufacturers warranty (guarantee)  cover the components on board, such as engines, air conditioning and generator.  Other items (very important) will be assumed by the dealer who sells you the boat.

The hull and parts designed specifically for the boat will not be guaranteed by the manufacturer, but by the dealer himself.

For your information, here is the list of the 6 major European manufacturers who offer a guarantee sometimes up to 24 months through their sellers (wstablished dealers here in North America).  They are:

Azimut-Benetti (Atlantis) – Ferretti Group (Riva, Pershing, Ferretti, Custom Line) – SanLorenzo – Princess Yachts – Sunseeker Yachts and the Beneteau Group (and its divisions).

For example, the basic warranty on an Azimut for yachts up to 72 feet is 12 months (std), but you can purchase Azimut’s PEACE OF MIND warranty which covers 36 months. You can acquire it during the first 12 months.

There are other European manufacturers that give an excellent guarantee that are not in this list, those listed above are the most dominant in the industry.

In addition, some are well established here in North America, particularly the Azimut-Benetti Group, which has a large infrastructure in Fort Lauderdale including a parts warehouse and staff from the European parent company in place. here, as does the Ferretti Group.

For other manufacturers that are not mentioned above, ask your dealer and above all read attentatively your sales contract with regards to potential significant anomalies that can occur (of course hypothetical) as structural defects, osmosis, early delamination, fiberglass defects, generator with a lack of power, problems with tanks (fuel, black water, fresh water), toilets, hot plates, hydraulic mechanism (platform, roof, windows), patio door, internal plumbing, electrical boxes, in short with many components from Europe.

In fact, you may find out from your dealer if he is able to transfer the problem to the boat builder (subrogation right). In this way, at the end of the day, it is the manufacturer who is responsible for solving your problem. We are only referring to a major problem that would require a lot of resources to resolve.

Rest assured engines are always solidly guaranteed by the engine manufacturers.  Examples include: Volvo, Caterpillar, Cummins, MAN, MTU, Yanmar, Mercruiser, Yamaha, Honda, Mercury, Suzuki, Evinrude, Seven … etc. to name but the most well-known.

There is no problem at this level, but there are also other important components on board a boat other than the engines.

For outboard motors, some manufacturers limit the warranties to specific countries, ask if for example, the motors are acquired in the United States but use in Canada permanently, are they still under warranty …

In my career, it is rare but I have seen the manufacturer replace a boat due to a major problem, fortunately, the European manufacturer was very solid, so the replacement was done to the satisfaction of the owner.

Fortunately when the manufacturer is financially solid and well established here in America, it is done in the proper way.  With a small manufacturer outside America, it could be a different story, especially when the dealer can’t fall back on the manufacturer.

Indeed, the price may be attractive, but the pleasure of owning can quickly turn into a nightmare with a major problem if the manufacturer is not directly involved in the repair process.

So pay attention to all aspects when making a major purchase, read all the clauses and do not hesitate to add clauses.  A professional broker with a code of ethics can advise you on the right choices, don’t hesitate, it is definitely worth it.  ItaYachtsCanada brokers are up to date on industry news about the policies put in place by the various manufacturers.

Meet the Sunseeker Superhawk 55

  • By Victor Tan
  • July 14, 2023

Dayboat performance combined with weekending possibilities? That’s what Sunseeker has achieved with the newest addition to its Performance line. The Superhawk 55 has a reported 38-knot top hop by way of twin 725 hp Volvo Penta IPS950 engines and can sleep four people in two staterooms. The boat made its US debut at the recent Miami International Boat Show, with more than 50 units sold already.

The Superhawk 55’s dayboat functionality is immediately apparent when guests step on board via the 6-by-15-foot swim platform and up two steps into the 188-square-foot cockpit. Here, there is an aft sun pad and two aft-facing settees surrounding an expandable table. This gathering space also has a wet bar forward with a sink, a refrigerator, an ice maker and a grill. Owners can also opt for a 43-inch 4K television with Apple TV and Airplay that can hide away in the wet bar. Beneath the sun pad, there is a garage that can hold a Williams Minijet tender or water toys.

Forward of the wet bar is the centerline three-seat helm station. Whoever’s driving will have two 16-inch Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit multifunction displays and Volvo Penta’s integrated pilot system with an IPS joystick to assist. Pantograph doors on both sides of the helm let the skipper or first mate easily access the side decks.

Access to the galley belowdecks is via stairs to starboard of the helm. The 120-square-foot galley is illuminated by natural light that pours in via hullside windows and segmented windows above. To port, the galley has a refrigerator, a freezer, a ceramic four-ring cooktop, a Miele microwave oven and a dishwasher; to starboard, there is a sofa for guests seeking a reprieve from the elements.

Owners and special guests alike will have roomy accommodations on the Superhawk 55, with a 123-square-foot, full-beam stateroom amidships as well as a 105-square-foot forepeak stateroom. Each stateroom has a 43-inch 4K television with Apple TV and Airplay, and a double berth. The aft stateroom can be ordered with twin berths instead, for families with kids.

The Superhawk 55 is for multifaceted owners. It’s a thrill-seeker that can serve as an adventure vessel for the day and be back in time for dinner, or it can be an effective cruiser for longer family voyages.
