The Editors at Yachting magazine draw up a list of their top new tenders, updated with new boats for 2014.
Hacker-Craft Tommy Bahama Edition
Tommy Bahama is a lifestyle brand synonymous with enjoying life by the sea. So is Hacker-Craft. The two joined forces to create the 30-foot Tommy Bahama Edition yacht. Like every hand-built vessel that comes from the builder’s Silver Bay, New York, facility, the 30 sports a brilliant mahogany hull, but this one also features eye-catching light-blue bottom paint. The topsides boasts a sparkle that can only be accomplished with 15 coats of hand-brushed varnish. Besides the immaculate brightwork, onboard details such as the two-tone joinery and custom upholstery and embroidery make this boat shine. The Tommy Bahama insignia can be found adhered to the hull in gold leaf, embroidered on the steering wheel and etched into the glassware.
