Introduction

"INTEGRITY" encompasses the build quality plus the fit and finish one would expect from one of North America’s expert custom yacht builders.  INTEGRITY is a beautiful yacht and this Huckins was ordered by experienced jet boat owners.  This yacht is powered by Cummins QSM 11 Diesels with HamiltonJet Waterjet Propulsion.  The exterior shows quite well thanks to the owner’s high standards of maintenance.  The climate controlled bridge deck is among the very finest seen on a vessel of this kind.  Additionally found on the exterior, a convenient cockpit and a forward seating area, both perfectly suited for relaxing outdoors.  The custom interior offers two luxuriously appointed staterooms, a gourmet galley, and open salon surrounded by large windows.  INTEGRITY offers her owners and guests an uncommonly high level of luxury and this yacht is set up perfectly for extended trips. Please review our full specifications, we have included information about Huckins “Quadraconic” hull design plus detailed information on Hamiltonjet’s waterjet propulsion. 


Quadraconic Hull Design by Huckins

Huckins Yacht Corporation’s Quadraconic Hull has been described as seakindly, legendary, even iconic. Let’s examine some facts about Huckin’s Quadraconic Hull Design. 

The name itself was derived from the partaking of four conical insertions that generate a specific form of hull.  Huckin's Quadraconic design allowed for the following characteristics.

1.  The hull flattens out towards the aft section.  This design feature drastically reduces roll and improves stability.

2.  Trim Tabs are not required and the trim angle remains the same regardless of fuel load.  

3.  INTEGRITY is free from pounding and she tracks like an arrow.


Bridge Deck

The builders at Huckins Yacht Corporation outdid themselves when they created the exceptional bridge deck for INTEGRITY. This entire space is surrounded isinglass curtains, with an option to add screens, and sun shades whenever desired. The isinglass, screens, and shades have all been designed to attach at the same time; a handy feature to depending on the weather. Examine the forward windshield closer and you will find there are no blind spots. The windshield is just one of many intuitive custom details requested by the yacht’s owner, an experienced boater who had previously owned two jet powered Hinckley Yachts. Another custom touch found on the bridge are the two chart tables located just aft of the helm. Notice the tabletops are the perfect size to accommodate your navigation charts. Two comfortable settees face each other toward the aft portion of the bridge deck and this entire area is climate controlled and complimented by halogen lighting overhead.

- World class wood joiner work
- Dual Porsche Helm Chairs with custom built foot pedestals
- Wing doors on Port and Starboard
- Premium navigation electronics
- AC for the bridge deck
- Smart looking white overhead with built in overhead lighting
- Premium outdoor carpeting


Salon

The salon is six steps down from the bridge deck, accessed via a companionway from the Starboard side of the bridge deck. The six windows that surround the salon are so large, it is easy to forget you have just stepped down into the accommodations area of an express yacht. Speaking of the large windows, each one was purpose built at the client’s request to assist with thermal control and sound damping. Venetian Blinds are built in between the panes of glass. The interior woodwork is all Makore African Cherry and the cherry wood was all cut from one single tree. The artisans at Huckins Yacht Corporation joinery is first class and their skills are on display with book matched woodwork and curved wood joinery seen throughout the interior of INTEGRITY. Ultrasuede wallcoverings used throughout the interior compliment the African Cherry joinery.

- Table forward of the settee raises for dining and lowers for cocktails
- Premium barrel style salon chair
- Curved built in storage and cabinetry is found along the Port and Starboard side of the interior
- Smart looking white headliner throughout the interior
- Two Lewmar opening hatches with screens and sun shades


Two Person Galley

The galley is located forward of the salon and it is accessed via a companionway on the Starboard side of the yacht’s interior.  This galley was designed to allow adequate space for two people. The curved Makore Cherry breakfast bar looks beautiful and separates the galley from the open salon.  The galley has abundant storage for ship’s stores plus built in storage for crockery, cutlery, and stemware.  Additionally, there is a cavernous storage compartment located beneath the vinyl galley sole.

Master Stateroom

The master stateroom on INTEGRITYis situated just a few steps down and aft of the salon, accessed via a companionway built into the port side of the yacht. The master stateroom offers her owners luxuries rarely seen on a vessel of this type. There is an oversized walk around queen bed and a His and Hers bath for example. The His and Hers master bath stretches across the yacht’s entire beam and affords the owners privacy and vastly more space than typical. The master bath joins in the middle with each having an entrance into the large walk-in shower. Four New Found Metal 316 stainless opening ports help to welcome natural light into this magnificent cabin. There is an abundant amount of built in storage found throughout the master, all tucked gracefully away behind grain matched Makore wood cabinet fronts. The curved Makore dresser built in along the forward bulkhead of the master showcases the craftsmanship of a Huckins custom built yacht.

Swim Platform and Aft Deck

The attractive teak swim platform on INTEGRITY helps to simplify boarding and access to the water. A carbon fiber passerelle was built for the yacht and it is stored on the swim platform. The passerelle weighs only 28 pounds and it is convenient for one person to manage. The universal joint of the passerelle connects to the swim platform at six locations. Moving forward to the aft deck, you walk through a double wide transom door that was purpose built to ensure handling the yacht’s tender is always as simple as possible. The aft deck is roomy enough to make this space comfortable. As you start inspecting the exterior it is apparent INTEGRITY has been pampered since her launch. The yacht has benefited from being kept undercover, her Fighting Lady Yellow Paint shines, all brightwork has just been varnished, and the decks have just been freshly painted. Access to the engine room is found underfoot and a noteworthy feature is the fact the entire aft deck is completely removable. Should a major maintenance item ever turn up, the problem can be addressed in a straightforward manner.

- Power stern winches to assist docking 
- Shore Power
- 110 Outlet
- Hot & Cold Shower
- Two custom Huckins built storage boxes with teak deck inlays
- Additional built in storage found along the forward bulkhead
- Top quality hardware used throughout this vessel


Engine Room

Engine room access is beneath the aft deck. There is a convenient hatch for regular maintenance and engine room checks however it is worth mentioning, the entire deck is easily removable. Should a major issue arise it is reassuring to know you have appropriate access to all engine room equipment and machinery.  Placing the engines all the way aft allows INTEGRITY to pivot on her tail and this yacht is highly maneuverable and there are no vibrations to speak of.  Another benefit is the fact you are not standing over the power-plants while cruising and any heat, smell, or sound associated with the engine room is separated completely from the yacht's interior. This engine room is well insulated and INTEGRITY is indeed a quite boat while underway. In fact if tested, the yacht would prove she is never louder than 75 DBA. Noise mitigation was paramount to the clients that ordered this Huckins Linwood; so, the builder guaranteed the boat would be no louder than 75 DBA. If she was louder, the client could forgo purchasing this boat!  The engine room compartment is roomy and designed properly to allow enough access for no nonsense regular maintenance.

2016 yard period at Huckins Yacht Corporation

INTEGRITY was brought back to Huckins Yacht Corporation September 2016 and the builder thoroughly surveyed the yacht.  A total of 51 individual tasks were identified and repaired by Huckins, the vast majority of tasks were small cosmetic details.  Adjustments to screws and latches, new gaskets, replacing a handful of light bezels, finessing small veneer imperfections, changing hoses, even the windshield wipers were adjusted!  It is fair to say the owners of INTEGRITY are detail oriented lifelong boaters who love keeping their boat as perfect as possible.


2018 yard period at Huckins Yacht Corporation

INTEGRITY was taken back to her builders in Jacksonville recently for upgrades and some service work.  All work is complete and this yacht will remain docked undercover at Huckins Yacht Corporation.

  • Service to the Cummins QSM 11 main engines

Today is an ideal time to arrange your personal inspection.  INTEGRITY will not disappoint.


Seller's Comments

"After owning two Hamilton Jet power boats, Polly and I decided to combine our 40 years of boating experience with the 80 years of Huckins design to create an extraordinary special vessel. The result is INTEGRITY, a boat that runs quiet without vibration, give a soft ride, tracks straight  as an arrow, and steers effortlessly. After 50,000 miles of cruising, 7 trips up the Eastern Seaboard with 7 trips up the Tenntom and a Great Loop thrown in, we have  experienced  all types of weather and sea conditions and never once felt that INTEGRITY could not handle them! The Hamilton Jets with their inherent  shallow draft free us from the worry of running gear damage and allow us to cruise in waters that others fear. We have never, ever, touched bottom. Owing a Huckins allows us to enjoy the "thumbs up" we get from passing boaters and after docking, being informed that we have the best looking boat in the marina. Polly and I enjoy inviting guests to cruise on our boat because the interior arrangement allows for complete separation and privacy. We have never felt a sense of confinement and our guests disembark remaining good friends. Needles to say, we would build the same boat all over again."

INTEGRITY owners Bill & Polly
