Notes: SEAHAWK is the first sailing yacht in Perini Navi's new generation 60m line. Seahawk is an aluminum ketch designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi with a sail area of 2,125 square meters and two aluminum masts of 62 and 52 meters, respectively. For the first time on a Perini Navi yacht, the booms are made of carbon fiber and so are the foils and the bright red standing rigging. The builders installed a new generation of fully recessed furlers for the furling of the headsails and developed the new captive winches to help increase tacking speed to under a minute!

Bruce joined the local Yacht club and started sailing at a competitive level in Olympic classes, ranking high In NZ and internationally. He was a natural and came very close to making the Olympic team for NZ. In recent times he’s done a handful of Super yacht regattas aboard S/Y Lady B and S/Y Zenji.
He joined the super yacht industry in 2008 and having traveled extensively since then, Bruce is your all around adventurer, a true wonder luster.

Gary is originally from St. Andrews, Scotland, was born with a golf club in his hand and was playing 18 holes before he could walk. 40 years onwards he can accomplish neither of these tasks very well, but never lets it get him down. Now a resident of New Zealand, newly married and with his first child on the way, you will always find Gary armed with a smile and ready to tackle whatever day-to-day engineering tasks are thrown his way. A lover of the great outdoors, and an avid fan or most sports, in particular football, rugby and golf...funnily enough all of the ones the Scottish national team are not very good at!!! He figures that now he has married a kiwi, he can officially support the all Blacks anyway, so it’s not all bad!
Available 24/7 to answer all of your queries - such as what does that big red button do? Gary cannot wait to welcome you onboard Seahawk.

Before Seahawk she worked on classic sailing yachts as a stewardess both in the Med and Caribbean.
I also really enjoy sewing and textiles and Kaya hopes to develop this into a career that keeps her involved with the yachting industry. Seahawk is a great way to explore new places in an exciting way.
