Dayboat performance combined with weekending possibilities? That’s what Sunseeker has achieved with the newest addition to its Performance line. The Superhawk 55 has a reported 38-knot top hop by way of twin 725 hp Volvo Penta IPS950 engines and can sleep four people in two staterooms. The boat made its US debut at the recent Miami International Boat Show, with more than 50 units sold already.

The Superhawk 55’s dayboat functionality is immediately apparent when guests step on board via the 6-by-15-foot swim platform and up two steps into the 188-square-foot cockpit. Here, there is an aft sun pad and two aft-facing settees surrounding an expandable table. This gathering space also has a wet bar forward with a sink, a refrigerator, an ice maker and a grill. Owners can also opt for a 43-inch 4K television with Apple TV and Airplay that can hide away in the wet bar. Beneath the sun pad, there is a garage that can hold a Williams Minijet tender or water toys.

Forward of the wet bar is the centerline three-seat helm station. Whoever’s driving will have two 16-inch Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit multifunction displays and Volvo Penta’s integrated pilot system with an IPS joystick to assist. Pantograph doors on both sides of the helm let the skipper or first mate easily access the side decks.

Access to the galley belowdecks is via stairs to starboard of the helm. The 120-square-foot galley is illuminated by natural light that pours in via hullside windows and segmented windows above. To port, the galley has a refrigerator, a freezer, a ceramic four-ring cooktop, a Miele microwave oven and a dishwasher; to starboard, there is a sofa for guests seeking a reprieve from the elements.

Owners and special guests alike will have roomy accommodations on the Superhawk 55, with a 123-square-foot, full-beam stateroom amidships as well as a 105-square-foot forepeak stateroom. Each stateroom has a 43-inch 4K television with Apple TV and Airplay, and a double berth. The aft stateroom can be ordered with twin berths instead, for families with kids.

The Superhawk 55 is for multifaceted owners. It’s a thrill-seeker that can serve as an adventure vessel for the day and be back in time for dinner, or it can be an effective cruiser for longer family voyages.
