Huckins was recently tasked with repowering Vagabond, a 1910 Consolidated Launch. Similar to Commuters, Launches were originally built for wealthy businessmen who lived on Long Island and commuted to Manhattan. They were often referred to as “limousines of the sea,” designed to meet the needs of privileged Americans who needed transportation from their homes along the rivers and coasts to their offices in the city. These boats were also used to go to the theatre in the evenings, enjoy afternoon cruises or attend yachting regattas. Some of the most elite socialites of the time, including the Vanderbilts, Morgans, Fords and...Read More

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.”

A group of teenage boys are taking pointers as the Huckins team works on stripping and varnishing the Amazing Grace’s toe rail. The 115-foot yacht, Amazing Grace, was privately donated several years ago to Safe Harbor Maritime Academy, an organization that provides a nurturing learning environment to help teenage boys find balance and harmony in their lives.
