Endurance 686 LRC Skylounge

$2,800,000 USD

Vancouver, BC

On our docks - Downtown Vancouver “Persistent 1” is new in all respects.  Polished; pampered; perfect.  Delivered to the current owner in July of 2017, given a boathouse, and run a few weekends only, she is, with 170 hours, for all intents and purposes, new.  Fully equipped.  Serviced.  Immaculate.  Ready to cruise this summer in the magic of our coast!   The “Endurance” line of Hampton Yachts combines the the idea of a rugged offshore capable yacht with redundant systems and robust equipment with the pleasure of an utterly luxurious yacht with generous living spaces, and sumptuous staterooms, even a comfortable space for the crew.   The interior is inspirational.  The high gloss Makore cherry gleams and demonstrates the remarkable joinery work of the Hampton yard.  The interior includes a designer decor package of furniture, tables, soft furnishing, decorative pieces that enliven the natural wood and rich decor and create a warmth and comfort that extends throughout the yacht.  There is nothing to add; nothing to take away. A particularly handsome yacht, with clean lines and sense of manly strength, particularly under way, “Persistent 1” is strong, quiet, powerful and efficient on the water.  Twin Caterpillar C-18 take this 110,000 lb. yacht to 21 knots with ease, or settle to a relaxed 10 knots and a quiet, efficient cruise.  The hull form, an Apollonio semi-displacement, split chine designed for Hampton, is sea kindly - safe at sea without sacrificing performance.  With a safe, covered aft deck and wide side decks with high bulwarks, and a Portuguese bridge on the main deck, this yacht feels safe and secure to all aboard. We invite you to browse the photos and review the descriptions of top brand equipment from helm to engine room to galley - and be in touch to arrange a personal tour!

The twenty-second Hampton 686 features an utterly refined layout.  From the swim platform, enter a centre water tight door to the crew quarters and engine room, or step up either staircase to an aft deck.  The aft deck is covered, and features a stunning table and seating.  Side gates permit access from either side using the Marquip folding steps or a permanent dock placement.  There is set of docking controls both port and starboard.  There is a fridge under the table, and a day head to starboard of the wide glass and stainless steel framed salon doors. The side decks extend forward either side to entrance doors forward, and to the forward deck, with seating and and anchor gear.  A set of stairs lead to the flybridge.  

Enter the salon aft, and step down to a sumptuous, sunken living room with occasional chairs, an L-shaped sofa, tables, and a 46” TV lifting from a cabinet on the port side.  The windows are large and provide wonderful views of the seascape.  Details of decor and joinery abound and are enhanced by rich wood grain and soft leather and fabrics.  Portside there is a companionway that leads aft to the crew quarters and engine room.  The crew enjoy a head with shower across, a large counter space, and ready access to the engine room, electrical components and the main ship’s electric panel.  

From the salon, step up to port past the bar featuring a wine cooler, fridge, and accoutrement drawers.  Steps forward are stairs to the sky lounge and the port side deck door.  Looking ahead there is a dining table with U shaped seating facing the country style galley - complete with spacious granite counter tops and a complete suite of high end stainless steel appliances.  A chef’s dream.   Passing the stools at the counter, is the starboard side deck door and the companionway down to the accommodation area.  

The curved staircase opens to a richly detailed foyer featuring an inlaid stone compass rose in the teak and holly sole.  Doors open to reveal a washer and dryer.  Across is the guest stateroom, with up down bunks and an ensuite head and shower.  Forward to the VIP stateroom with an island queen berth and an ensuite head and shower.  Aft leads to the sumptuous master stateroom - rich in details that include a vanity and glass doored bookcase, large, opening windows, and a spacious head with large marble clad, shower stall.  

The stairs from the galley area lead up to the skylounge  and helm with stunning surround views, two Stidd chairs and a complete suite of navigation gear.  To starboard is a spacious L-shaped settee with a fold out table, and on the port side is a “desk,”  with built in fridge, aft is the skylounge day head.  Sliding door lead to the aft deck where you find the barbecue, sink and counter along with the large boat deck featuring a hydraulic davit and Novurania tender.
