Returning to its performance and racing roots—and following the requisite detailed market research—the Sunseeker team has announced its all-new high-performance day boat, the Hawk 38. Borne out of a collaboration between Sunseeker and Fabio Buzzi (FB) Design, the new model will have a cruising speed of 62 knots (70 mph) with twin Mercury R400 outboard engines with Mercury Racing Digital Zero Effort throttles. FB designed the hull to optimize speed and minimize noise transmission, and it will be built of structural foam and Hypalon 866 STAB tubes to help stabilization while at sea.

The Hawk 38 will be an excellent choice for chase boat, tender, or solo day boat. Its high speed will make it easy to get to and from shore, while clients can choose unique designs and fittings for just getting out on the water for the day. Making the most of its 38 feet, the foredeck has ample space and features a sunbathing pad and optional canopy when you want to escape the sun. The boat’s aft-facing U-shaped seating is placed around a quick-release table to allow for entertaining while at sea, and it stows quickly when needed.

Located aft of the seating area is the helm station with double-curvature ventilated glass and carbon-fiber screens for wind protection. The Hawk 38 will be outfitted with a Simrad navigation system sporting GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities while linking up the other essential systems for easy access.

Other amenities offered on the Hawk 38 include a full toilet compartment under the helm, racing seats on the aft, two drawer fridges, and plenty of storage hidden throughout.

Those drawn to details will appreciate the carbon-fiber 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 subwoofers.

“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. Having worked previously with FB Design on the XS2000 and XS Sport as far back as 18 years ago, Sunseeker has always dominated this area and will continue to do so with this technologically advanced cutting-edge new model,” says Christian Marti, Sunseeker’s CEO.
