Decisions in Boat Buying
See why discerning catamaran owners from around the world choose Scott Rocknak as their HH Catamaran Agent.
Scott has the unique experience that goes beyond the initial sales process. He intertwines guidance during the build that is ever so crucial for semi-custom projects.
Borne of three generations of hands-on boating industry craftsmen, his proven experience is ingrained. Scott’s training methods are efficient and effective. His desire is to provide complete knowledge transfer ranging from outfitting the myriad of things that make a global cruising yacht to successfully operating your boat in the environments you choose. Most importantly, his logistical support after the sale is paramount to successful relationships that have spanned decades with owners, their families, and their boats.
1) You can see the quality you are paying for. You've been there, shiny new models at the biggest boat shows all the while wondering "what am I getting for all this money?" With an HH Catamaran you can see the craftsmanship immediately.
2) It's wicked fast. "Yeah, yeah, they all say that" you remark. Except in this case, well, the boat is the real thing. It goes. And it goes fast. Why? It's Morrelli & Melvin designed and built in all Carbon Fiber. Yup, you got it, Ka-ching. But its worth it.
3) The boat is built to your needs and requirements. The exterior shapes are defined, the interior is up to you. We'll reign you in if you're adding a marble statue though. This is just to keep point 2 above real.
4) The boat is cool because the people behind it are cool. Come with us on a factory visit. Sit at the round table at lunch. You'll like that table. It rotates and you choose your food as it swings by. Soon you'll begin to realize who you're sitting with. It will all be down to earth but slowly you'll recognize historical boat names, campaigns, races, and missions that have been created by the people sharing and laughing with you. And the real cool thing is, they're building your boat.
You've gone beyond thinking about it. You're waiting for the right opportunity to pull the trigger. "The right boat at the right time". Well, we have the right boat. And, well, there is no "right" time. There is only time receding in your rear view mirror.
The efforts you've accomplished have come to fruition. Time for something nice. Like really nice. Spend time aboard something you can enjoy from every single visual angle. Something you can actually feel move differently and more efficiently. Ask for the video of this boat moving at 22 knots in normal conditions.
There is ample space for your stuff and accessories. And there's space for you to carve out for your own allowing other crew members the same.
And most importantly, the boat comes with Pride of Ownership. No extra charge.
Here's an exercise. Dinghy up to anchored catamarans in the middle of some outlying lagoon... Ask every owner for the amount of time the boat has been voyaging and then ask for their engine hours.
Aside from the (probably cool) folks living off the sea in a plywood multi-hull with homemade sails you're going to find (2) camps. The first will be "performance cats". They'll have "X" amount of hours on their Hobbs Meter. The second will be "cruising cats" . (Most likely they'll have "2X" hours on their dials.) Now divide by the voyaging time, preferably in years. One of the two will be shown to have run their engines quite a bit more per year. Why? Because a performance catamaran can head upwind higher and move faster and closer to the wind speed minimizing the use of the engine. The cruising cat less so and requiring the motors to come on.
Your carbon footprint will be the shadow your carbon fiber catamaran leaves on sandy ocean floor as you silently blow by the fleet.
Go ahead. Order a green colored spinnaker. And, feel good about it.
What? Not the poster image of a high performance sailor? You didn't just come off an America's Cup Contender? Care free, flowing hair, and Oakley Sunglasses? Isn't this a performance cat sailor? Maybe. But they're along for the ride. If you let them. You're the one who makes it happen. (They do have cool jackets though.)
We train you how to best optimize your experience. From monohull or cruising cat, or perhaps even something else, we bring you up to speed with our specialized training program. Not that it's complicated, we just show you how to best use the goodies that make the boat fast.
The HH 55 is a Morrelli & Melvin designed Carbon Fiber Hudson Yacht Group constructed Performance Cruising Catamaran. It has carbon fiber daggerboards with line drivers to raise and lower them. The traveller is also controlled by a line driver push button operated from the helm. The winches are electric. Everything is push button, And everything has a manual override. All lines can be lead aft to the helm(s) if you wish. There is a windlass and a chain counter. You can safely reach the mainsail to fold it. You can have four forward sails, all on furlers. All the hardware alludes quality. The boat has been very well thought out. Attention to all the details are evident.
You can get a forward steering station or twin aft steering stations. Everything on the boat was chosen because it performs and is built in the best manner possible.
The boats we've been on have achieved 24 knots and in the more common scenario of lower wind and flat days the boat moves at 8-10 knots in 9 knots of wind. Great for summer sailing in the Med or New England.
It's one of the few catamarans that has the interior joinery you'd expect in a high-end cruising monohull. This is achieved through careful use of real wood trim and ultra-light panels with real wood veneer. You chose what you like.
Down below the berths can be sat on to take off your shoes. Providing, that is, you let people wear shoes inside. What this means is that the berths aren't 4 feet up in the air. The aft berths are about queen size and the forward berths are about full size (slightly larger in both examples).
The salon is of your making. Escape from the oh so typical U-Shape settee. Inquire for examples.
The galley can be setup for the most finicky of chefs with great counter space, storage, refrigerators and freezers. We can put 1.5 to 2kw of solar on the salon roof. You can keep you davits free for the dinghy and water toys.
We can set up the boat for Scuba diving including a compressor. There's a spot for spare rudders. There's a spot for bicycles. And there are spots for your guests.
Typically the sails have been North 3DI Endurance or Doyle Stratis. There are others too. I have my favorite. Ask why.
The engines push the boat easily at 9 knots. You can go faster but you burn more fuel.
Yes, you can have a washer/dryer combination unit, an ice maker, water maker, air conditioners, and a generator and still see the fleet disappear over the horizon behind you.
There is a tremendous amount of material available to send you. Just ask.
