Hawk Yachts unveils new 68m explorer yacht concept

by on 10-19-2018 in News

The new concept is designed to be chartered all year round.

The Hawk Ranger, as it has been named, represents “viable investment opportunities” and is intended for use as a “profit making enterprise”, according to Hawk. Capable of withstanding a 52-week charter season, the concept would be able to “dramatically reduce costs for build management and servicing”.

Hawk Yachts chief executive Matthias Bosse said, “This approach allows owners to run the yacht as a profitable business. The super-rich are no longer content to own trophy vessels that sit in harbour for 45 weeks of the year. Increasingly, we are seeing a desire to live and breathe experiences that are only accessible to the select few.”

The Hawk Ranger will be able to accommodate 12 guests, and she will boast a top speed of 17 knots. At 12 knots, she will enjoy a cruising range of up to 6,500 nautical miles. Further details of the new concept are due to be shared in the coming months.

The news of Hawk’s latest concept arrives after the announcement of two other explorer yachts in January –  the 5-metre Cape Hawk and the 75-metre Sky Hawk.
