Sunseeker Embraces its Racing Heritage with Mercury Powered Hawk 38

Published on: 01/07/2019

Following several years of speculation, Sunseeker has announced the launch of a brand new, high-performance day boat – the Hawk 38. 

Sunseeker has returned to its performance roots to deliver an exciting and dynamic stepped hull in conjunction with Fabio Buzzi Design, winner of 43 World Speed Records and 55 World Championships.

Drawing on the company’s racing heritage, the new high-performance model will be capable of a leisurely 70mph (62kts) ‘out of the box’ with standard twin Mercury Verado 400R outboards. 

The supercharged Verado 400R delivers rocket-like power like never before. The cool air intake grabs fresh, outside air to feed the water-cooled supercharger which reduces air temperatures and supercharger load - which means more horsepower for big performance gains.

The hull has been optimised to take advantage of the latest outboard engine technology to give not only performance benefits but also low-cost maintenance for clients. With the twin 400Rs mated to Mercury Racing Digital Zero Effort throttles, both engines can be controlled easily at higher speeds with just two throttle and two shift levers.


Fitted with a Simrad navigation system, the helm console includes 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 including lighting, batteries, pumps and LED navigation lights. Owners can also fully integrate their Simrad system with the 400R outboard engines and link to all the features SmartCraft has to offer with a user interface that is simple to navigate.

Every last detail in the boat has been designed with performance in mind down to the carbon fibre grab rails with polished stainless-steel mounts, retractable cleats, compression latches and a custom audio system with polished stainless-steel speaker grills, aft facing swim speakers and optional subs.

Whilst the incredible design, features and equipment delivers ultimate day-boat appeal, its searing performance will ensure it’s always first to the best anchorage or beach restaurant. With a choice of paint finishes and upholstery, it will also make the ultimate superyacht chase boat; no two boats are ever likely to be the same.

Commenting on the Hawk 38, Sunseeker CEO, Christian Marti said: “The heritage of the Sunseeker brand is unparalleled; built on a legacy of developing small performance racing boats, we are the technical experts in this field, and it lies within the brand’s DNA. The all-new Hawk 38 will deliver an experience like nothing else in the market.”
