Note my   “About page” and “my 2019 reality “ Yep, another owner who decided not to sell once a buyer was found.


Anybody following my site over the years knows how much I like the Hamptons.  They have a beautiful fit and finish, and are very well built. I was lucky that Forest Roberts who was the owner of Anchor Marine (The Hampton dealer) on the East Coast of the US. had given me some personal tours of these boats. His enthusiasm and love for these boats was evident.  The builder of Hampton listened to knowledgeable boaters and followed their instructions. Forest and his wife were involved in their designs, and construction in China, and their decor once they arrived in Florida. I know NO other vessel of their ilk I can as heartily recommend than a Hampton. Unfortunately Forrest has retired, and his store purchased by Hampton themselves. That might be great in keeping things linear, but they’ll never have a cheerleader as they had in the Roberts.  THIS boat is a one owner yacht purchased from Anchor in 2005.     A much loved vessel. THIS is a rare opportunity.  These 55’s are GREAT couple boats.

Brokers Comments

Wild Ride has the original owner that has used the boat to go to the Bahamas every year to enjoy the beautiful waters, fishing and activities he loves. He is selling the boat because his physical health does not allow him to enjoy the boat any longer. Because the boat has many years left, it is time for a new owner to enjoy the boat as he has done. This is a very nice boat!
