The morning we left, weather was not cooperating, on the sophisticated radar screen storm after storm were coming in to view and quickly setting above us, the owner, Jose, I must say, a very experienced captain maneuvered the yacht swiftly through the squalls and soon we were cruising at 35mph toward the clear skies leaving the dark blanket over Miami behind us. http://www.sikoraphotography.com/aboard-a-huckins-yacht-wombat/

LI’L MONSTER SKI BOAT STILL HAS PLENTY OF PULL

In the late 1950s and 60s, when mahogany runabouts like Chris-Craft and Century were popular, I was mesmerized. I just knew I had to have one. So, in 1960, my father downsized plans for a deluxe utility runabout and built me a beautiful 16-foot ski boat with a mahogany deck. At the time, I was skiing competitively and that custom-built boat gave me plenty of power for ski practice. I owned the boat until 1972, when my husband Buddy and I decided to sell it and purchase a no-maintenance fiberglass model. We sold the ski boat to Robert Newman and...Read More

BFB Sold

“BFB” gets a new owner and a rave review.

Huckins recently sold the 58′ Huckins Offshore 1973, “BFB”. We received a lovely message from the new owner, William Guy. “I have driven quite a few boats in my time and I must say, nothing compares to a Huckins. Especially ours! It handles like a Corvette and catches as many looks as well. The throttle response, steering, and ride are special. I had no desire to give up the wheel even after 5 hours.”
