Our team stepped on board the 60m Seahawk twice in 2013, once to join her owners in the Perini Cup in Sardinia, and again at the Monaco Yacht Show. Seahawk is an important innovation both in project lines and in onboard technology that guarantees speed, performance comfort and abundant space. Her sleek hull lines and hull and superstructure in aluminium allow for a gross tonnage of less than 500 GT and an optimized displacement of 570 tons.
This ketch, designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a total sail plan of 2.125 square meters mounted on main and mizzen masts that are 62 and 52m high respectively. Her boom, spreaders, headsail stay foils, diagonals and standing rigging are all in carbon fibre. A new generation of headsail furlers, designed and created by the Perini Navi Mast Department, have been mounted flush to the deck. The winches also are new generation for greater power and faster manoeuvring speed.
Her interiors have been designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre who has created a refined and contemporary ambience with strong marine accents aboard Seahawk.
The yacht will be featured in detail this weekend, as our Superyacht of the Week.
