Superhawk 55 emerges from the shed
Sunseeker’s first Superhawk 55 has emerged from its production hall, as the yacht embarks on sea trials and final preparation ahead of her global premiere at Boot Düsseldorf 2023, which will be held in Germany from January 21-29.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO at Sunseeker, said: “The launch of the Superhawk 55 is exciting for all involved. The iconic Superhawk name is close to the hearts of owners, employees and admirers worldwide.
Superhawk 55 ahead of sea trials
“The Superhawk 55 is a halo product of future models developed from a proven design philosophy, becoming an icon. This exciting new performance model promises to be a thrilling new addition to the Sunseeker range, born from a passion that is unmatched in our industry.”
The all-new Superhawk 55 is a new addition to Sunseeker’s current Performance range, which began with the Hawk 38. A response to the current luxury day boat market, the new centre-console design is available as an open-top yacht or with a hard top.
The yacht can reach 38 knots with two 725hp IPS engines
The CE Category A boat has an overall length of 56ft 10in (17.3m) and features an all-new composite hull, stainless-steel detailing and expansive glazing.
The yacht has a top speed of 38 knots and is powered by twin 725hp Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 engines, matched with a hull form specifically designed for the IPS propulsion system.
Large social areas fore and aft
A full-beam aft cockpit makes full use of the 16ft 3in (4.95m) beam and starts with a large sunpad that stows water toys under an electrically opening hatch, while the tender garage below can house a Williams MiniJet tender.
Forward are two L-shaped sofas that can slide aft diagonally to create a dining area around the central table, while there’s also a feature wet bar and an optional rise-and-fall TV.
The L-shaped sofas can slide towards the table
The triple-seat, centre-line helm is midships, includes dual glass bridge display screens, charging pads and chrome multi-purpose dials, and is protected by a stainless-capped, curved windscreen. Either side of the helm, pantograph doors offer access to side decks and walk-around access to the bow.
The foredeck offers a full-length sun pad, which can slide forward to reveal a table and dedicated seating area complete with wireless charger and storage lockers.
The lower-deck lounge and galley
Starboard steps lead down to the lower deck, where an open-plan saloon and galley area features a rise-and-fall TV, ambient recessed lighting, curved wood and lacquer finishes.
Natural light floods through from the expansive glazing above, which has a Union Jack feature and an electric blind.
The full-beam aft cabin is midships
The forward cabin benefits from an en-suite bathroom, upholstered units and a wardrobe on the port side. Midships, the full-beam master cabin comes with optional sliding berths, offering a double or two singles, plus a generous en-suite. Several interior schemes are available, offering a mix of textures and colours.
