As a sportsboat rather than a cruiser, Sunseeker consciously designed the 34 with a narrow beam and very sleek lines. This certainly enhances its performance and sets it apart from the competition, but you pay for it in cabin space.

If you want it all, then the Superhawk is not for you. In much the same way, you would never buy a used Aston Martin, when a Mondeo estate offers better loading space and cruising economy. What the Superhawk does have in abundance is feel good factor and excellent performance – here it excels.

Tested February 2007

Verdict

The 34 was never meant to be ‘all things to all men'. Instead, it accomplishes what it set out to do admirably, and can wear the sporty Sunseeker badge with pride.
