2009 Hugh Saint Custom Boats Bankruptcy Sale
** SOLD **
This 65' custom classic commuter style yacht is a work of art in wood and fiberglass. Commuter yachts were designed in the 1920's for wealthy New Yorkers to commute from their estates on Long Island into New York City and were long, fast, and narrow. This yacht powered by twin 1652 HP Cat diesels with water jets, has a top speed of over 40 knots and would make an extraordinary tender to a large yacht. Cruising speed at 50% load is 29 knots. This sale is a bankruptcy sale of the original buyer who never took complete delivery, not the builder.
Hugh Saint, Inc of Florida is a custom builder of classic runabouts in the style of years gone by, but with modern wood WEST system and structural fiberglass construction. Designed by Charlie Jannace as an excellent yacht for entertaining guests for a day or evening cruise, or to enjoy for comfortable weekend cruising.
The main salon, paneled in mahogany, is entered from a center door from the aft deck. This area was designed for entertaining with a large cultured stone topped wet bar and entertainment center to the port side and large settee to starboard. The wet bar has two Vitrifrigo Ocean Steel under counter refrigerator drawers, a Vitrifrigo stainless Icemaker, and a Franke stainless sink with Nordic Basin Mixer. A 40 inch Sony Bravia Flat screen is on a power operated lift that rises from the counter. There is a central stereo controlled by a Crestron system.
To the starboard side is a custom lounge seat of Glastop Marine Ultra fabric with a cocktail table on a Linak power table lift to convert from a cocktail table to a dining table.
The other couch makes into a sleeper. At the forward end of the salon is the helm station with electronics to rival a trans-oceanic mega yacht. A double bench is at the helm and another double bench is at the port console. The port console houses the entertainment controls and electrical panels. The floors like all other cabins on the boat are oak hardwoods. The large salon windows are electrically operated.
Forward of the salon is the fully appointed galley with a second lounge area with convertible sleeper, dinette, and day head with shower. A 40" Sony flat screen TV is wall mounted. Cultured stone counter tops with stainless appliances give a clean modern look contrasted with the beautiful woods.

MISS OSB was built over three years as a no expense spared love affair. When the US and Canadian housing market collapsed the buyer went into bankruptcy and never took full delivery from the builder. This sale is a non core asset of a Canadian corporation in CCAA and the purchase price must be approved by a Canadian court. The original buyer was a manufacturer of oriented strand board most commonly used in the structure of wooden homes and spent over $750,000 in research and development of special engineered woods in oriented strand board form for the construction and decoration of this yacht. The hull itself is a composite of OSB external veneer, layers of structural fiberglass and internal layers of OSB planks.
