VAGABOND, is one of six 40' launches build in 1909 built by Consolidated Shipbuilding. VAGABOND was exhibited at the NY boat show in Jan. 1910 where, to quote the Rudder magazine, she "attracted the crowd in droves."
If that wasn't enough, VAGABOND is an electric yacht will travel 40 miles on a single charge! A hybrid motor for a century-old launch. At 600 rmp, she will go all day at 4.5 knots on batteries alone. The Elco 35kw engine is equivalent to a 70 hp diesel engine.
100 years old, but now goes silently through the water. I hope we all do that well when we get that age!
This is a glass over wood hull.
Perhaps no other name in yachting embodies the integration of past and present, and triumph of authenticity over fad, quite like Huckins Yacht. Interested in new construction or brokerage? Call Sara Gielow at 954-383-9544 or email@example.com. One of a kind. One at a time. huckinsyacht.com
