Florida-based builder, Huckins Yacht has unveiled the design of the Huckins Sportsman 36 yacht tender. Huckins Yacht Corporation is proud to be one of today’s only true custom yacht manufacturer. Featuring modern amenities as well as the trademarked Huckins Quadraconic hull, the Huckins Sportsman 36 yacht is a classic-retro-styled boat, based on the original Sportsman 36, created by the company´s founder, Frank Pembroke Huckins in 1936.
Now, following a meticulous 21st century makeover, the Sportsman yacht triumphantly re-emerges sporting a more accommodating interior — with headroom averaging a lofty 6’6″ — ready to be custom-fitted to customer´s specifications.
Huckins time tested Quadraconic hull captures superior sea going qualities and ensures effortless transistion to on plane, a proper running angle at cruise speed, along with an inherent miserly need for fuel.
The Huckins Sportsman 36 yacht tender may use a variety of propulsion systems including jet drive, pod drive, conventional shaft, or even the latest hybrid technology, all of which easily reach speeds of 30 knots plus.
Third generation Huckins owner, Cindy Purcell, states, “The interior design for this Huckins yacht tender can be adapted to suite the mother ship’s needs. This layout suggests a use for ferrying supplies, guests, or as a snorkel/dive platform.”
The Huckins Sportsman 36 yacht will be handcrafted with a dedicated staff featuring the most skilled boat builders in the industry to include marine engineers, electricians, wood craftsman, mechanics, and more.
