The island lifestyle brand Tommy Bahama has teamed up with legendary boat manufacturer Hacker-Craft to design and construct the first ever Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft runabout. The new Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft boat will be on display at Bahia Mar land spaces 1086-1087 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from October 25 to 29, 2012.
The 27’ Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft speedboat is a combination of cutting edge technology and retro elegance. Master boat builders invested more than 1,400 hours to hand build this magnificent vessel. The custom colored mahogany hull and decks gleam with 15 coats of hand brushed varnish. The Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft yacht tender is powered by an Ilmor MV8 6.2L 430 horsepower engine (CE compliant).
The entire boat embodies the sophistication, comfort, high quality and adventure of the Tommy Bahama lifestyle. The Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft is heralded as “art on water,” offering luxury upholstery embroidered with the Tommy Bahama logo and blue piping. The famous Tommy Bahama logo is on the steering wheel, glassware, bow burgee, step cushions, upholstery, the dash and on the side of the boat. The boat comes with underwater lights, refrigerated drawer, premium sound system, GPS and cocktail cabinet.
Special accoutrements include a leather wrapped banjo steering wheel, custom gauges, blue LED engine bay lighting, two tone panelized cabinetry and arm rests, chic surface mounted stainless steel cup holders, stainless steel speaker grills and a deeper cockpit floor with recessed toe kick area. Additional Tommy Bahama colors and accents, and “Relax, by Tommy Bahama,” (the official name for the stern/transom) can be added as a customer option.
“Tommy Bahama is the island lifestyle brand that has become synonymous with relaxation, high quality and sophistication, whether at home, on vacation or traveling the world,” said Terry Pillow, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “Our partnership with the Hacker Boat Company now gives us the opportunity to showcase the Tommy Bahama lifestyle on the water, where people truly know how to relax.”
George Badcock, president and CEO of the Hacker Boat Company, Inc., said of the new Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft yacht tender, “we are delighted and honored that Tommy Bahama has chosen us to partner with them in this, their brand extension into the boating world. We know that those who own a Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft will revel in owning what is truly art on water, with the famous Tommy Bahama aura.”
