104' Happy Four
Happy Four is perhaps the definitive example of a modern classic Hoek design, built by the much admired New Zealand yard Alloy Yachts. Launched in 1996, Happy Four was way ahead of her time. She boasted a host of smart solutions, including a dual purpose swimming platform/ tender storage transom arrangement and a flip-over anchor setup that keeps her bow clean when sailing. Although 104 feet in length, Happy Four can be sailed by one person if desired: furling headsails, fully battened mainsail with in-boom furling and captive winches on all sheets combine simple sail handling with excellent performance. Bow and sternthrusters make docking easy and the hydraulic stowaway anchor offers adds safety and improves appearance. Winner of the Showboats Award and nominated for the International Superyacht Award, Happy Four is an elegant and sophisticated superyacht in every respect.
