CobaltThe Endurance E658 LCR is a new, long range luxury motoryacht from Hampton Yachts with emphasis on safety, comfort, and efficiency.

The luxurious interior of the E658 is apparent when one steps into the salon. Plush deep padded carpet, cherry wood paneling, and hand-fitted cabinets are just a few of the details that make the spacious cabin shine. Designer upholstered couches and club chairs are placed throughout, and the 46” LED TV and Bose surround system mean relaxing days ahead.

Endurance E658 InteriorThe manufacturer seems particularly proud of the galley, which features an open layout so the cook can socialize with the guests. The chef will have a GE Profile four burner cooktop, GE Profile oven, GE Profile convection microwave oven, new style Broan trash compactor, and Insinkerator garbage disposal at his/her command. Matching granite countertops and flooring are standard.

All three entertainment staterooms (master suite, VIP stateroom, and guest) have personal entertainment systems. A fourth stateroom and crew quarters are located aft.

Endurance E658 InteriorThe Portuguese-styled bridge is where the skipper will spend most of his/her time underway, and a comfortable L-shaped settee wraps around a dining table to keep him/her company. There are many options for the twin diesel engines ranging from 750 horsepower apiece to 1,136 horsepower. Hydraulic stern and bow thrusters should make for easy close-quarter maneuvering.

The E658 builds upon the Hampton Hybrid Hull, a split-chine hull from the mind of Naval Architect Howard Apollonnio. Interestingly, the lower chine disappears into the forward third of the hull. The exterior features a molded fiberglass, full-width boarding swim step. The open pilothouse and flybridge feature a wireless remote-control dinghy lift for the tender as well as social space around the helm.

Endurance E658 SpecsOne can’t do much better than the Endurance E658 LCR in the ammenities department. A washing machine and dishwasher will make one feel like they are on land again, in a good way. Of course, good times are to be had aft at the swim step and transom. An aft deck settee with custom teak table and secure drop-down TV are sure to draw in the crowd on a nice day.

All in all, the new Endurance E658 LCR looks like a luxury cruiser made to go the distance in style. The E658 combines the luxury of land with the carefree fun of the water. She can be yours from Hampton Yacht Group for $3,095,000.
