Following the company’s design philosophy of challenging the current ‘accepted norms’ of the luxury yacht industry, the CAPE HAWK 690 is designed for year-round world cruising with minimal dependence on mainland support and aims to improve the return owners see for their investment.
The design uses a wide beam of 9m/30ft and an interior volume of 690 GT. The main deck forward contains a full-beam Master suite with two fold-down terraces, and the space can be converted into two VIP staterooms. Four en-suite cabins are located on the lower deck that can be converted from twins into doubles.
To the aft there is a folding swim platform and the beach club can instead be fitted with a gym, spa and 12-person sauna. On the main deck, guests can enter via the aft observation pod and use the glass corridor to pass the tenders and reach the lounge. To create a larger space for entertaining the tenders can be removed and the glass walls pushed back to open the space.
The salon is fitted with state-of-the-art technology to become a cosy cinema that can be turned into an outdoor cinema in warmer weather. Above, the sun terrace has a retractable bimini for summer and a firepit ensures that the area is still usable at colder locations and during the winter months. The hot tub is encircled by sunpads to make a relaxation area ideal after dining alfresco with refreshments from the forward bar.
The CAPE HAWK 690 has a range of 6,000 nautical miles. The advanced hull concept has already been tank tested at the Southampton Solent University and the first hull will go into production.
