In America, we know, things are done big. HCB can boast of being among the manufacturers of the world’s largest center-consoles such as the 65-foot Estrella (pictured) that can reach 3,600 outboard horsepower. The range starts with a 39-footer, and we are talking about powerboats for those who want to combine luxury, sportiness and performance. As of 2023, it is the Monaco-based company
Spencer Ship Monaco
to support the brand’s commercial and image development in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

HCB, America’s luxury center-consoles.

HCB stands for Hydrasports Custom Boats, an American shipyard in Tennessee whose origin dates back to 1970. The fame of HCB hulls has, however, long since crossed the U.S. national borders partly due to the echo received by XL models such as the 65-footer mentioned earlier, but not only. With crazy power and equivalent comfort, HCB models are fully customizable boats ranging from 39’to 65′: The agreement with HCB comes after one reached by Spenser Ship with
, another historic American brand. The goal, not even too hidden, is to consolidate the brand outside the U.S. by focusing on a very particular offering: the luxury yacht with a center console.

“Today’s custom buyer,” explains Craig Harvey, founder and CEO of Spencer Ship Monaco. Look for something that did not exist before. Thanks to the partnership with HCB, we can now offer a new category of boats to our high-end clientele. Overall, these are standard boats, but they push the boundaries by incorporating new features and functional orientations for the boating community. We fully share the values of this solid company, which has a proven tradition of some 50 years in the production of V-shaped hulls, and we are honored to be able to support it in the development of its international market and its destiny of success.”
