Further Comments

Hawksbill was one of only 5 of this type of vessel. This particular Hawksbill was built as a gentlemans Sword Fishing boat with a huge cockpit. She has an exceptional pedigree designed by John Alden and custom built in 1965 in East Boothbay Maine by one of the all time greatest boat builders, Sonny Hodgdon of Hodgdon Bros. The boat has an incredible history. Initially built for a writer in NY as a Sword fishing boat which was his passion. The second owner and his wife over 30 yrs traveled extensively in fact the boat traveled to various locations spending 9 months of every year to different destinations eg Bahamas, New England, New Foundland etc etc. 

The current owner purchased the boat in 2014 and set about an extensive refurbishment and compiled a huge photographic record of the restoration  process making Hawksbill into the impressive elegant vessel she is today.
