Default 36 ft SeaHawk

Hello Guys,

Previous lurker, noob, first post.

Just took delivery on a new 2008 SeaHawk 36".
Twin 315 HP Yanmar turbo diesels.
Spartan, this manufacturer builds ferry, scuba and fishing machines.
Design by Joe Langlois, (he designed and built "Thunderball", of "DR. NO" fame.
Naval architect with more thatn 50, 100' plus yachts.
Everything from hull up "one of".
Massive construction. Awesome power. Great handling.

Anybody operate a SeaHawk out there?
Builder is Mike Wyatt, in Sebring, FL.

Would love to hear any feedback.
So far, vessel is like a brick shithouse.
Neutral-easy steering, great in a sea-way and workmanship 1st class.

Thanks,

Ed

My buddy actually broke one in half running into a 3' head sea @ 15 kts. You should have done your research before you decided to begin selling them.

I looked carefully at one in the keys last year. It was about a 2002 model with twin yanmar 440's. It was in very good condition and CHEAP, only $100K. I liked it but the construction was just too poor. Tiny vertical untreated wood supports for the deck. The deck appeared to be divinycell cored, very weak. You could push in the hull sides with your hand. It just wasn't built as well or as strong as a 20' bayliner, nuff said. I'd never want to be caught in a storm in the ocean in it. You'd never keep the bottom down.
I hope the newer ones are better built.

Looks like a direct hit! Damage control. Damage control.

Do you still have the Sea hawk 36. I go to Bimini a lot and the keys and am interested in getting one. For the money they seem like a really awesome boat. Do you have any issues with yours?

OP died back in 2009 when his SeaHawk split in half and sank in 3ft seas.

Was this the second time one spilt in two or are you just messing around?

Probably not, but now I'm curious if what onewolf said has any merit. These seem like well built boats now so was trying to get some honest opinions on it from a previous owner.
