Description/Condition

The term "custom" as it applies to yachts has become difficult to pin down.  The only predictable trend seems to be that, in recent years, custom yachts have grown exponentially in length.  That is why the products of small yards like Huckins are so interesting.  The boats Huckins builds are not megayacht milestones or speculative ventures.  Huckins creations are inspired by yachtsmen who dream of boats and time spent close to the water. FREEDOM is a great example of how such projects come to life.

The family-owned yard has been building boats since 1928 when Frank Pembroke Huckins figured that folks needed a more efficient way to get about on the water. His patented Quadraconic hull form gained recognition in PT boat design competitions during World War II and later served as a platform for the Huckins yachts that followed in peacetime.  

FREEDOM’s owner, a knowledgeable yachtsman who grew up boating on the Great Lakes and in South Florida.   Like all recent Huckins launches, FREEDOM’s hull and superstructure were built "one-off" over a male jig. Closed-cell foam coring was secured to a computer- cut jig and the outer fiberglass skin was laminated and faired.  The jig was then removed, and the inner skin was laminated.  

FREEDOM’s classic styling and all-weather air-conditioned helm station fit her owner's needs perfectly.  When skies are clear, the windshield can be opened with a push of a button, flooding the helm with fresh air.  Isinglass curtains can be lifted and the side windows opened.  The flying bridge is set back far enough to allow space for hatches in the overhead.  Stidd helm and companion seating and matching Garmin plotters allow the mate to navigate and transfer data to the skipper at the wheel.  When work is done, a lounge area aft has a settee and a wet bar with an ice maker and an insulated ice chest.  A gate leads to the cockpit and a transom door allows access to the integral swim platform. 

FREEDOM is laid out for a cruising couple with an open main cabin and a single stateroom.  For the occasional guest, the settee in the main cabin converts to a double berth with the push of a button.  A Huckins designed table easily adjusts from cocktail to dining height and the galley has drawer style, under-counter refrigeration.  The stateroom has a queen island berth, two hanging lockers, and a vanity.  The head compartment is separate from the shower compartment, which makes sense for a cruising boat with a single head.  The owners called on interior designer Michael Demanes to work with Huckins on FREEDOM’s interior decor.  The look, inspired by a classic antique sailing yacht design, features granite, teak and holly soles, and raised-panel, satin-finished mahogany joinery.

FREEDOM is fitted with Hamilton Jet water jets. In recent years, jets have gained popularity with Huckins's customers, Purcell and her team have mastered their marriage to his slippery Quadraconic hull.  Huckins still keeps a close eye on weight and balance, and - unlike many modern builders-has avoided the temptation of adding too much beam. FREEDOM’s 30,000-pound displacement and slim, 13-foot, 9-inch beam suit her form perfectly, and her performance and feel is uniquely Huckins-exhilarating! She rises evenly to plane and has a running angle of 3 to 3.5 degrees.  With just 6 degrees of transom deadrise there is no need for tabs, and turns are accomplished with a minimum of banking. 

A maximum speed of 30.2 knots at 3350 rpm.  At 3000 rp

Vessel Walkthrough

Forward is the master stateroom with an island queen bed, aft to shower on port and head on starboard.  Aft and  up to main saloon with settee, end tables and storage to starboard, galley to port and freestanding up and down cocktail/dining table.  Aft is the Bridge deck with captain’s station with full instruments and controls.  To port is the companion’s station with a Garmin 5212 display.  Aft of the captain is the stair to the Flybridge.  Aft of the companion’s seat is the dinette perfect for cocktails in the lower position or when raised by the hydraulic system casual dining.  The dinette also makes in to a single berth if needed.  Aft is the large swim platform with the davit for the dinghy. Above is the Flybridge.  

Main Salon

To Starboard is a leather settee which for the occasional guest converts to a double berth with the push of a button. At each end of the Settee are end tables with secured lamps and storage. Aft of the settee are cabinets with storage, electric panel, Stereo and Blue Ray DVD player connected to the swing out LCD Television opposite. A Huckins designed table easily adjusts from cocktail to dining height. To Port is the nearly invisible galley. The windows have shades and custom silk curtains. The look, inspired by a classic antique sailing yacht design, features granite, teak and holly soles, and raised-panel, satin-finished mahogany joinery.

To Port the shower is fitted with a double shower head with overhead and handheld showerheads. A teak bench seat is to outboard.
