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

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.”
