Home Broker's Best 2018 68′ Hampton Endurance 658 LRC

2018 68′ Hampton Endurance 658 LRC

by Randy Woods

Well-loved and maintained, this like-new Endurance 658 from Worth Avenue Yachts is a real beauty.

Lovingly cared for by its original owners, this 68’ Hampton Endurance long-range cruiser features three staterooms and three heads to comfortably sleep up to six people. While its muscular twin Caterpillar 12.9L marine diesel engines put out 1,000 horses (with just 445 hours of use), countless luxury appointments give the trawler a refined air of grace and stability.

Named Mahalo, this Endurance 658 LRC has an open layout on the main deck, allowing clear sightlines through the entire interior, from helm to the stern. Situated on the aft deck is a molded-in settee, fitted with custom upholstered seats. Adjacent and forward is an oval, gloss-finished cherry dining table with compass rose inlay. The aft deck also has access to a day head.

Moving forward through a sliding glass door, the salon includes large, frameless windows, allowing natural light to fill the space. Custom-built furniture includes a starboard L-shaped sofa, two port-side upholstered armchairs, and an electric-lift hi-lo table. The entertainment cabinet to port features a 46” Samsung TV on a lift with a Fusion 755 stereo system, a Sony Blu-Ray player, and Polk speakers.

Two steps up from the salon is the forward galley, equipped with a heated granite floor and granite counters. GE appliances include an upright Monogram refrigerator/freezer, a four-burner induction cooktop, and an electric oven. Forward of the galley is the pilothouse with Pompanette Platinum Series helm chairs. The helm boasts a full suite of Garmin electronics, bow thruster controls, and a custom cherry steering wheel.

The flybridge deck above features a second, full-control helm area. A large Corian hi-lo table and an L-shaped lounge provides an al fresco entertaining space with a sink, a 30” DCS propane grill, a refrigerator, and an ice maker. Aft of the outdoor galley, a 13’ Walker Bay Generation 400 DLX tender is stored with a Steelhead 1,750-pound capacity davit.

Stairs from the pilothouse lead to the cabins below, including a full-beam owner’s stateroom with a king-sized bed and en suite head and shower. The VIP cabin forward has a queen-sized berth, while the port guest cabin has side by side twin beds. Both cabins have shared access to a separate head and shower.

Being less than five years old, Mahalo still looks like a brand-new vessel. But it has had some work done to keep it in top condition, including an annual waxing of the hull and topsides. In 2019, both propellers were removed and tuned. In 2020, the entire bottom was painted and Propspeed was applied on the props and running gear. Earlier this year, all zincs on its bottom, engines, and transmission were replaced, and CO2 monitors were replaced in the staterooms.
