What is the ultimate reason to own a yacht? The freedom to explore the world in total luxury.

Some of the most beautiful and remote locations in the world are out of reach, even for most explorer yachts.

We are designing yachts that we believe are more capable than any yacht ever built, that are able to travel to the most challenging environments on Earth. Yachts that can truly get in and amongst the most spectacular locations in the world in super-yacht levels of comfort.

SUPERYACHTS THAT CAN GO ANYWHERE

Building a yacht which can truly explore means designing it to be capable in the two most extreme environments, the Polar Regions and the Amazon.

AMAZON CRUISER

The opposite extreme to the Polar Regions is the Amazon River. It presents several challenges, such as hot and silty water, high temperatures and humidity.

A true expedition yacht that can cope with both of these environments can sail almost anywhere in the world.

Advanced systems to cope with extreme conditions.
POLAR EXPLORER

The Polar Regions are some of the most isolated and magnificent environments on the planet. To really access these regions you have to be able to enter the ice, which is why Hawk yachts are designed to meet Polar Class 6 standards.

LUXURY

Whether entertaining in a marina or relaxing in a secluded location, our yachts are luxurious in every climate.

Our designers have come up with concepts to entertain and delight guests, but ultimately we work alongside the owners to create a bespoke interior.

Spacious interiors

Wide beams allow for extensive possibilities for interior layouts on board, such as a large spa and open galley.

The bigger picture

No expedition is complete without stunning views. Our yachts are designed to allow you to see the world from the ideal vantage point.

Yacht expedition is not about going rough, it's about access to the memorable exclusivity of unspoilt nature in comfort, safety and style.

BUILT FROM THE OCEAN UP

Whether sailing independently from shore side support, in ecologically protected areas or adverse conditions, we've created a true expedition yacht.

Hawk Bow

The innovative Hawk Bow shape seamlessly combines beauty and functionality.

The innovative Hawk Bow shape seamlessly combines beauty and functionality. It encloses the forecastle, protecting systems that can get damaged or worn in heavy seas, it is effectively 1.5 decks higher presenting a higher gunwale, and its shape dissipates the energy from waves breaking on it rather than scooping the water as happens with a traditional bow shape.

The hull is designed for smooth and economic sailing in a large range of conditions, with large bilge keels and retractable fin stabilisers for efficient and steady sailing, and an ice friendly shape, so it can push through up to 80cm of ice.

Range and Cruising

With a 12,000nm range, our yachts are designed for long haul expeditions and extensive exploration.

With a 12,000nm range, our yachts are designed for long haul expeditions and extensive exploration. Maintenance friendly and with generous storage facilities, they can be taken to sea for over 3 months. The yachts are designed to maintain safe operation in remote locations with redundant systems where possible, including propulsion and manoeuvring to enable the yachts to continue out of remote areas towards ports where shore-side assistance is more practical.

Ecological Areas

Some of the most beautiful locations on earth are protected by ecological restrictions.

Some of the most beautiful locations on earth are protected by ecological restrictions. We have designed our yachts to travel through these areas with minimal environmental impact. Using the yachts hybrid Diesel-Electric propulsion system, the yachts can sail in a low-impact and efficient mode that uses the generators alone to sail quietly and without vibrations at speeds of up to 12kn. Additionally, on board incinerators for burning waste and sludge, biological sewage treatment, metal shredders for storage, cooled waste storage and sophisticated grey water treatment facilities also minimise the effect of ocean waste.

You need an extraordinary boat to be able to get to places where others cannot go.
