American Owner Accepts Delivery of 64m Hakvoort Flagship

The Hakvoort is a 63.72-meter yacht that has just been delivered to the owners. The explorer yacht started its journey to the United States on the 17th of April, from the Netherlands where it was the flagship of the yard.


It follows Scout, which was launched at the end of 2018, designed to resemble a conversion of the commercial vessel. Scout, built in aluminium and steel was designed by the H2 Yacht Design company, while Diana Yacht Design did the naval architecture.

Inspiration Taken form 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Built and designed uniquely to the specifications of its experienced owner, the yacht design is inspired by the legendary 1950s film called 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The result is authentic to the vision of the new owner and the yacht has a unique vintage maritime aesthetic.

ohnny Horsfield, owner and founder of the H2 Yacht Design revealed that the owner of the unique yacht remained closely involved during the designing and building process. When asked to describe the overall appeal of the interior. Horsfield said it is best described as Fritz Lang meets Ian Fleming meets Jules Verne. Most of the inspiration came from the underwater wonder world and ocean creatures. Completed via a nautical, industrial design viewpoint with a touch of Bond villain’s lair.

Main Deck Features Four Staterooms

With a draft of 3.25 meters and a beam of 11.6 meters, the Scout can accommodate eight guests. It features a main deck, four staterooms as well as a deck dedicated to the owner. A specific seafaring design was selected for each of the cabins, while the lower deck is used for the crew’s accommodation.

The interesting range of key features also includes the expansive sundeck, helideck and observation lounge. A twin Caterpillar 3512C engine powers the Scout to provide a top speed of 14.8 knots. The cruising speed of the Scout is 12.5 knots and it has a nautical mile’s range of 4.800.

Stargazer Chase Boat
