The highly anticipated return of the Superhawk line, missing since 2009, is fully achieved with this beautiful, updated speedster. Offering a sleek and eye-catching exterior, typified by dramatic lines and a profile that promises excitement with every outing, the Sunseeker Superhawk 55 is equally at home with day trips as well as extended times away from the dock.

“We are so excited to have a new model in the iconic Superhawk lineage,” says Jim Kehrig, Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales Sunseeker brand manager.

Whether inside or out, large windows all around allow ambient light to fill every space. Easily board aft, courtesy of the extended swim platform, where the space is filled with comfortable lounging and dining areas, a dramatic centerline helm with full-beam wetbar just behind it, and portside door access to the expansive bow area complete with forward sunpads and additional seating. Below decks is a two-stateroom, two-head configuration, with an optional third cabin available as well.

While beautiful to look at, she also offers exciting speed and handling. Powered by a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 950 diesel inboards, this thoroughbred performer will, with proper sea conditions, have you speeding along at up to 38 knots.

“Playing in the bay with family, going to dinner with friends, overnighting at your favorite weekend port, or just cruising on a beautiful day, the new Superhawk 55 will be a great experience,” Kehrig adds.

The Sunseeker Superhawk 55 promises, and delivers, on everything you may want from a performance yacht of her size.
