SY Summerhawk was designed by the renowned New Zealand naval architect, Beau Birdsall. This beautiful yacht has been extremely well cared for and maintained by her enthusiastic owner. She recently had a major refit (2014) with only the best equipment fitted for extended world cruising.
She is Australian Flagged and was built in New Zealand, which makes her exempt from tax and duty in both those countries. She was slipped in October 2015 with new antifoul and her anodes replaced. Step aboard and sample for yourself the detailed craftsmanship and soak up all the character she has to offer. She has all the modern comforts one would expect for cruising the world's oceans and everything is in Bristol condition. She is bullet-proof and ready to sail around the world!
Self-tackle is made possible with all best gear and electronic, makes Summerhawk an ideal offshore cruising vessel for Solo Traveler, family or a Charter Sailing Vessel.
The Solent rig is really wonderful for downwind sailing for easy and hassle free handling (unlike the proverbial spinnaker)
There is Space to accommodate 8 live on board guests for a comfortable sailing adventure. She is sailaway ready today!

Vessel History:
SY Summer was launched in the early 80's. After only 12 months in the water, she was hauled for annual maintenance and antifouling. At the time, an earthquake at the time caused a crane to fall on her. She was scarified to save the crane and sat in the yard for a decade, until Mr Anton Mathews (a professional boat builder and Metalworker) purchased her. Anton spent 3 years rebuilding her as his personal yacht, and launched her in 1999 as a new vessel. He spent 3 years cruising the Pacific then sold her to Mr Pete Barry circa 2001. Pete and his family cruised on her doing a similar trip to Anton. Pete then sold her to a holding company that sold her to Mr Reg o'Keefe. Reg kept her in Sydney where she swung on the Royal Motor Yacht Club Newport mooring for a decade. Steve Botha then purchased her in February 2014, which is when she underwent a total refit. Prior to purchase, she was inspected and a satisfactory yacht survey was carried out by registered marine surveyor Captain Peter Lambert (Fellow -International Institute of Marine Surveying (London).
