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.”
