What’s she like in port and at anchor?
She’s well-appointed and offers a good deal of live-aboard comfort for her size, making her an ideal coastal cruiser. Headroom is generous throughout, the cabins spacious with ample stowage, and the galley wouldn’t go amiss in a 40-footer.
Like many Moody yachts, the Seahawk proved popular for one reason: its palatial aft cabin. The lack of an en suite heads forces you to traipse through the galley and saloon first thing in the morning, although its inclusion would have reduced the cabin size considerably and probably eaten into deck stowage.
Many yacht owners dislike a longitudinal galley at sea, because you can get thrown about while cooking under way. If, like the Seahawk, it is in a narrow corridor, so that you can easily steady yourself by leaning back, it’s not a problem. At anchor or in port the galley here is excellent with bags of space.
The only downsides are the steepness of the companionway steps, the slightly cramped forecabin and the size of the saloon, which is fine for four, but a squeeze for more.
Except for the alternator to starboard, engine access is good from three sides
