HCB Center Console Yachts is the company you might have known before as Hydra Sports Custom. Yes they renamed/rebranded and besides that, they are refreshing many of the models in their offering and also introducing a new flagship. The current flagship is the 53 Sueños but the company is eyeing a much larger 65-footer Estrella for 2019. They are expecting that it will appeal to center console and the unsatisfied sportfish customer.
The new model year 2019 portfolio that will be featured includes the next generation Sueños (53-feet), a revised Siesta (42-feet), a reinvigorated Speciale (39-feet). Many of these upgrades were highlighted at the Miami Yacht Show. “We looked around and noticed that the sportfishing yacht market was dominated by size, comfort, customization and sophisticated styling, mainly through the use of premium materials and features,” said De La Torre. “On the other hand, the center console segment brought performance, ease-of-use and ownership, and superior functionality to the marketplace—thanks in part to outboard propulsion and boat designs. Our ‘aha’ moment was realizing that if we merged these two products together and with lasers focused on being an experience-based brand with all the luxury, we would really be able to take on the big sportfishing brands. We aren’t making center console boats anymore, we are making center console yachts.”
