Established 10 years ago in Wellington New Zealand, Hakes Marines first build was the high profile Zana. Now Hakes Marine China has been established in cooperation with Hudson Yacht and Marine. It will be the high performance division of Hudson Yacht and Marine continuing its tradition of world class and extraordinary quality racing yachts it has become synonymous with.

Hakes Marine has now relocated to the beautiful Xiamen, China; headed by Paul Hakes and a number of key management personnel to look after the new division and implement comprehensive training and quality procedures. The new division allows Hakes Marine China to take full advantage of the US $50m investment and 200 well trained staff already operating in this young facility of four years. The facility boosts an impressive 35,000sqm of building halls and all modern technology driven boatbuilding equipment including an 18m long full height five axis CNC router.

In starting to realize this potential Hakes Marine China is thrilled to announce the new HH range. Symbolic of this new union the HH range stands for Hudson Hakes. First will be the HH 42, a fully optimized very high performance racing yacht. Designed by world renowned Judel Vrolijk Yacht Design, the HH 42 is simply made to be the fastest in its size around the race track, yet be competitively raced to win on IRC as well as HPR.


It will have limited offshore capability to ensure it’s always a leading feature at such classics as The Fastnet, The Rolex Sydney to Hobart and Rolex China Sea Race. It will have full option packages to suit different racing styles for the world’s different regions, including but not limited to lifting keel, retracting propeller, wheel steering, carbon rigging, and deck gear packs with a variety of winch options. Soon to follow this thoroughbred of the yacht racing world will be the HH 47.

Moving to China with Hakes Marine are SL Performance Race Boats; bringing the Morrelli Melvin designed Grand Prix SL 33 racing catamaran, also used by Americas Cup Teams as a training and development boat. This relocation now allows these boats to be sold at more competitive rates. The company's proud past means for an exciting future.
