Sunseeker Tomahawk 37

I'm thinking about buying one of these (a MKII) - anyone know of one tucked away that may need a little TLC?

Thanks, but even if it were a MKII it's under offer anyway.

This one is in Jersey, there was a red 37 for sale locally (Guernsey), not sure if it was a MK1 or MK2 though.

Might be worth checking some of the Guernsey brokers listed here;

Thanks but channel island boats rarely have VAT paid and I'd get stung bringing it back here. At the 30 - 40k bracket this makes a big difference.

Always loved those and thought they were an aspirational boat, maybe when I've had enough of racing!

I found that one. A bit tatty - certainly not worth 26k. You can get a Sunseeker refurbished example for under 40k.

Any other suggestions for equivalent boats? The Hawk 31 has a similar hull but not quite as elegant IMO.

I thought about a Hunton Gazelle but no chance finding one I suppose.

There's always the Sunseeker Mohawk 29. They're very similar in styling terms as they were in the same range as the Tomahawk 37 and Thunderhawk 43.

Not going to get one of those for under 40k I don't think.
