The Observation Pod

One of the greatest advantages of travel by superyacht is the unfettered access to the most awe-inspiring sights in the world.

Whether you’re cruising through the fjords of Patagonia, under the Southern Lights of Antarctica or past the crystalline shores of the Pacific, you don’t want to miss a thing. 

With the new 48m Cape Hawk 690 expedition yacht, you never have to. Designed for year-round use and to bring the extraordinary vistas even closer to guests, Hawk Yachts have maximised the superyacht experience. And the best feature? Its unique all-glass observation pod, which enables you to have an unrivalled vantage point of the stunning vistas and seascapes around and above you, from the comfort of the yacht. 

Many natural wonders of the world require us to look up – not easy from the average port hole and yacht window.  The ingenious suggestion of the students on the Superyacht Design Course at Solent University, the observation pod means that guests can view the dramatic scenery above and around them whilst remaining in total comfort. This focus on maximising the guest experience is seen throughout the design of the yacht, with fold-down wings port and starboard in both the dining area and the owner’s suite.  

And if the views above and around you aren’t enough, this explorer yacht can also be fitted with a full dive unit. There’s even space for a submarine garage and science lab, enabling you to study the sea life below you all year long.
