Breaking the ice

With a Polar Class 6 rating, Sea Hawk has a strengthened hull that can break through 80 cm of medium first year ice with old ice inclusions, giving exceptional access to the unspoilt and majestic scenery of the Polar Regions.

Ice Friendly hull shape
The hull is designed for safe navigation in polar waters, pushing through smaller pieces of ice or breaking through thicker ice.
Expedition style Sea Chests
In the Polar Regions there is a chance of ice and slush entering sea chests and inlets, which can block seawater flow to the ship's systems. To avoid this, compressed air and steam may be introduced to clear the ice and slush.
Highly manoeuvrable
Our yachts are designed with Becker rudders and strong side thrusters for efficient operation and manoeuvrability. Extendable azimuthing propellers also provide extra manoeuvrability and dynamic positioning.
High-power boiler for cold environments
To operate comfortably in cold climates our yachts are designed with high-power boilers and heating systems.
Reinforced Ice Belt
The hull has thicker plates and narrower frame spacing at the bow and around the waterline, which protects the hull from ice interaction.
Heated shell door seals
Heated seals avoid the chance of door seals freezing in cold climates.
Oversized propellers and machinery
All yacht machinery has been developed to meet the requirements of ice interaction and polar expeditions.
Designed for ice accretion
Sea Hawk is designed to be stable with up to 100 tons of ice accretion.

Sail beyond the sea

Not only is Sea Hawk able to withstand polar climates, it is equally capable in tropical climates, with the ability to travel through warm waters and up silty rivers, opening up the wonders of this unique but challenging environment.

Effective cooling capacity
Water temperatures in the Amazon can reach up to 36°C, putting a strain on ship systems. The oversized cooling capacity system keeps engines from overheating whilst travelling in hot waters.
Insect Filters and Pollen Barriers
At sunset in tropical regions, there tends to be large amounts of insects in the air. Easily accessible filters will be installed so that insect blockages in air conditioning filters can be cleaned away.
Maintenance friendly water intakes
River water is often silty, increasing the likelihood of blockages in the engine cooling systems. Our systems are easily accessed for cleaning in such conditions.
Oversized air conditioning systems
Air-conditioning will be installed that is capable of dealing with extremely high temperatures, humidity and condensate.
Freshwater production
Easily accessible filter systems and brackish-water permeators for reverse osmosis freshwater production will be installed.
Oversized propellers and machinery
Sea Hawk's machinery and systems are engineered to withstand interaction with floating logs and debris.

Changable in nature

As temperatures change so do your choices. Rigorously designed spaces flex to maximise comfort, and get the most from your journeys, no matter what the weather.

Look out, then look up

The most dramatic scenery is often above you. Cosy in the Arctic and cool in the tropics, lose yourself in your surroundings in the all-glass observation pod.

Roam free

Exploring is about more than range. Robust simple engineering, large stores and systems designed for autonomy set you free in remote locations for up to six weeks.

The tender area

The large garage allows for tenders and zodiacs up to 8.5 metres in length, which enable longer trips and access to the shore even in adverse conditions. So now you can explore those shallow, narrow areas where the yacht can’t go.

The toy box

Jet skis, surfboards, sea kayaks, windsurfing gear: there’s plenty of room onboard to have fun at sea.

Take it to the bridge

Take an interest in the voyage, not just the destination. Share the bridge with the captain, learning how the vessel operates, discussing the finer points of navigation, enjoying the views.

Make an entrance

There’s more than one way to board Cape Hawk.

Don’t hold back

With spaces designed to open out to the heat, doors become balconies and walls slide back to make extra room inside. All the while the yacht is kept light, airy and safe, with the addition of drop-in panels and railings.

Details make the design

Cape Hawk is wide for a 48m yacht, with a 9m beam. A volume of 690gt adds up to plenty of space across its five decks, which includes guest accommodation and communal areas inside and out.

Stealing the show

Remove the tenders, slide away the glass walk way and transform the main deck into a large entertainment space. Moving from shore, into the observation pod bar and onto your party or product launch.

Beautiful design in practice

Beautiful design in practice

The innovative Hawk Bow shape seamlessly combines beauty and functionality. It encloses the forecastle at the front of the ship, protecting systems that can get damaged or worn in heavy seas. Effectively 1.5 decks higher than a traditional bow, the shape is designed to break and throw aside large waves instead of scooping them up. This makes for more comfortable and efficient sailing through heavy seas.

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