Cape Hawk 690, 48m superyacht concept

Cape Hawk 690

Cape Hawk 690Hawk Yachts has recently unveiled its latest superyacht concept, the 48-metre Cape Hawk 690.

Thanks to the teamwork with Captain Matthias Bosse, with naval architects Laurent Giles and Southampton Solent University, Hawk Yachts has addressed the emerging need for worldwide voyaging to develop a versatile superyacht.

Designed from the outset with function and practicality in mind, Cape Hawk is robust and ocean-ready. Her 6,000-mile range, combined with large stores and systems designed for autonomy, allow visiting even far-away locations for up to six weeks. Moreover, her seakeeping capabilities make her ideal to keep her passengers safe at all weather conditions and in all seasons.

Cape Hawk is wide for a 48-metre yacht, with a 9-metre 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. The vessel retains the classic appearance of a superyacht in her exterior styling and profile.

The concept includes rigorously designed relaxation spaces to maximise comfort on board, whatever the weather. With spaces designed to open out to the heat, doors become balconies and walls slide back to make extra room inside. The yacht is kept light, airy and safe, with the addition of drop-in panels and railings.

Among convertible spaces, the beach club can be opened up with a folding swimming platform or be rearranged for a gym and spa, with room for 12 in the sauna. The sun terrace offers shade from the midday heat with a removable bimini or the warmth of a firepit as it transforms into a winter garden. The lounge is a cosy living area which opens to the sun terrace in warmer climes for the outdoor cinema.

The yacht is also optimised for stunning views of the surrounding seascape. The all-glass observation pod has been designed to provide dramatic sceneries above. The bridge as well is meant to be shared with the captain, to learn how the vessel operates, discuss the points of navigation, enjoy the views.

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, such shallow, narrow areas where the yacht can’t go. Jet skis, surfboards, sea kayaks, windsurfing gear are some of the water toys that can be stored onboard.

The owner’s suite, which can be converted to a pair of VIP rooms for charter clients, including ensuite bathrooms and dressing rooms, is located on the main deck. Guests are accommodated across four en-suite bedrooms which can be arranged as twins or doubles, featuring walk-in wardrobes.

With design and development well underway, the advanced hull concept has been tank tested and the first hull will soon be entering production.
