Pyefleet Boat Sales worked hard to promote the SeaHawk, placing advertisements in the press and taking the boat to various shows, where handbills were issued to prospects. Boat Mart magazine gave the SeaHawk first mention in the "New Arrivals" section of their report on the National Boat Caravan and Leisure Show at the NEC, Birmingham, in 2001.

The magazine appears to have the details of the takeover slightly wrong. Information from David Cornabe, reported on the History page, suggests that Jim Tubby, owner of Mistral Craft at Loddon, manufactured the boats and PBS promoted and sold them. What is unclear is whether PBS acted as Mistral's agent, or Mistral was contracted by PBS to build their boats. In a copy of Practical Boat Owner from this period, Jim Tubby is given as the contact for boat sales, so perhaps the relationship changed over this period from one to the other.
