British-built Sunseeker Yachts are sleek, sexy, go-fast boats that command attention wherever they go. This stylish express is a low-profile sharp looking boat. There is a huge sunpad with removable cushions perfect for catching rays in the summer. The C-shaped seating area is great for entertaining and it has a removable table stored under the engine hatch. There is a wetbar on the portside of the cockpit with a sink and ice box, plus storage.

The 43' Thunderhawk has an awesome layout for entertaining - it is the perfect Lake/Puget Sound party cruiser.

Enter through the sliding companionway door and down two steps into the cabin. To the left is the galley with concealable sink/counterspace. There is no built in stove, but you could plug in a hot plate or small microwave when on shore power. There is a refrigerator in the galley, plus a second one in the cockpit storage area. The galley has ample storage space for food, etc.

Across from the galley is the head - it is a Electro Scan manual flush toilet that treats wastewater so it can be legally discharged. The head compartment has a storage and a sink with pull out shower faucet.

The saloon is a C-shaped seating area with removable table. The table can be also lowered to create a double berth. Last year the saloon upholstery was replaced. Forward of the saloon seating is the master double berth with privacy curtain.

Electric heat for cabin only works while plugged into shore power.

New Barrett canvas enclosure with eisenglass windows installed last year. Barrett also replaced all of the cockpit upholstery in 2010. The canvas is in excellent shape and the windows are clear - I photographed it on a rainy day so there was condensation on the windows which is not an accurate representation of their clarity or condition.

Broker's Comments

This is unique opportunity to own a sought-after diesel-powered Sunseeker at a great price. This is the only Sunseeker 43' Thunderhawk in the Northwest and one of few in the US. Its twin 370 HP Lehman Sabre diesel engines have less than 1200 hours and are reportedly in good shape. This speedy express cruises at 30 knots burning only one gallon per nautical mile. The interior and exterior upholstery was redone in 2010 and looks near perfect. The cockpit enclosure is high quality eisenglass that was installed in 2010. It has been stored on a trailer or dry stored during the winter months for the last 10 years so the bottom and outdrives appear in great shape. The sleek profile and European styling sets this Sunseeker apart from other production express cruisers. This is a hot price for a diesel-powered express cruiser in nice shape.
