The Cape Hawk 690 is a 48m superyacht Expedition vessel with a 9m beam. A volume of 690 GT adds up to plenty of space across its five decks, which includes 5 or 6 guests accomodation and communal areas inside and out. The Capehawk designed from the outset with function and practicality in mind, Cape Hawk is robust and ocean-ready. Its 6000 mile range sets you free to visit almost any location on earth. While you won't seek out difficult conditions, nature can be unpredictable, and this is the vessel that will keep you safe at sea.
