Created as a shadow boat for superyachts, Hoek Chase Boat is a cool and stylish motor yacht
The Chase Boat, designed by Dutch architects Hoek Design and in build at the Claasen Shipyard, is being presented as a shadow boat for a superyacht; a vessel to be used for ferrying guests to and from the mothership or for the owner
to commandeer and head off to explore without the crew in tow.
However, the Chase Boat also makes for an achingly stylish and thoroughly unique motor yacht that offers an alternative to more mainstream 75ft craft.
On the one hand it is, amazingly, a 75ft tender, on the other hand, it is a boat dripping with class that’s endowed with enough space to cosset its owner and guests in wood and leather-lined luxury.
The boat’s lines are as elegant as they come with the flared bow drawing back to a slender, rounded transom and the bulwarks topped with highly varnished timber.
Hoek promises superyacht levels of fit and finish with everything except the aluminium hull being completed by Classen, a yard that has J-Class yacht builds on its impressive CV.
Due to the Chase Boat’s intended use, the deck spaces are sparse, though the sheltered cockpit and pilothouse combine to make a wonderful main socialising area. Below decks, hull number one has a pair of very spacious double cabins, both with ensuites large enough to include his ‘n’ hers sinks. The layout is flexible though, and can be tuned to customers’ tastes.
The boat uses a pair of Scania 925hp diesel engines driving straight shafts. The yard claims that the top speed will be 25 knots with a 15-knot cruising speed, producing a range of 750 miles.
