This Huckins Pilothouse is a very unique and special yacht with an interesting history and pedigree. She was custom built by Huckins in 1987 as a wheel chair friendly Yachtfish. There is a brilliantly designed elevator capable of taking guests from the salon to the enclosed flybridge allowing full access and enjoyment of the yacht. In addition, the on deck master stateroom is easily reached on the main deck which is a rare find in yacht under 100 feet. The boat was purchased in 2006 by Randolph "Bunky" Hearst Jr. the grandson of newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst. Hearst Jr. was an avid yachtsman and editor of Motor Boating & Sailing magazine. Hearst returned the boat to the Huckins Yard for a complete multimillion dollar refit updating all the systems, machinery, electronics, and a complete exterior refurbishment. She was significantly upgraded again in 2012 including the addition of new electronics, Simon monitoring system, and hydraulic stabilizers.
Another unique feature on this yacht is the Arneson Surface Drives which provide an efficient cruise and exceptionally shallow draft for a vessel this size. Her draft of just less than 4 feet makes her an ideal Bahamas Mothership capable of getting into just about any anchorage or marina your travels may take you too. She is a totally self-sufficient yacht with a watermaker, modern waste treatment system, and a range approaching 1000 NM.
This yacht is a true delight for both owner and Captain. The crew quarters located forward is spacious and private with its own lounge, galley, and head. There is also a spacious laundry / utility room with easy access to the engine room and all machinery.
There are many fine yachts on the market at any given time but rarely does one come along that better suits the needs of an elderly or disabled owner with the desire to continue the yachting lifestyle in complete safety and comfort. "Scott Free" is a special yacht and is sure to bring great joy to her next owner.
