The Endurance 658 LRC model designed by Howard Apollonio and built by the Hampton Yacht's Shipyard (Shanghai PR China) was intended to produce a yacht which would cruise at displacement speed economically for long range and, or be able to accelerate up and onto-plane to enable making port before dark or to out-run an on-coming squall-line. Apollonio's "Hybrid Hull" achieves this goal. Additionally, the hull design was tank tested and exceeds USCG (United States Coast Guard) and IMO (International Maritime Organization) standards for stability for offshore passenger carrying commercial vessels. So, a quality built yacht that is safe, economical and yet fast if you need to get somewhere, is what the Endurance Yachts by Hampton Shipyards delivers.
