With initial performance and handling critical to the sea trial, Sunseeker was thrilled to report that its first prototype hull, and with the legendary Fabio Buzzi at the helm, achieved an incredible top speed of 68.7kts (79mph). Estimates for the finished boat with console, carbon fibre roof, deck mouldings and fittings remain 62-63kts (70mph+); exactly as calculated.
 
Noticeably, the incredibly low noise and vibration levels are groundbreaking, even at maximum speed thanks to the all-new patented structural-foam hull technology. Combined with the inflatable Hypalon 866 STAB® tubes and Mercury 400R engines, the boat is easily delivering the dynamic performance it was designed for matched with exceptional turn-in and grip. 
 
With an inconceivably smooth running hull and the addition of four Besenzoni 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.
 
Commenting on the initial sea trial, Sunseeker CEO, Christian Marti said: “Extensive testing is now underway on the Hawk 38 prototype and we are thrilled with the results achieved during this initial period. Performance racing boats are in the brand’s DNA and the Hawk 38 is our most technologically advanced performance boat ever - these results prove that we are the technical experts in this field.”
