Jack Hargrave is among the most famous and respected American Naval Architects of the twentieth century. His more than 7,000 yachts build-outs are noted for their innovations design elements, seaworthiness, and durability. Additionally, Jack was one of the first American Yacht Designers to utilize fiberglass as construction materials for boats larger than eighteen-foot runabouts. His 41-foot sport fisher design for Hatteras Yachts founder Willis Slade pioneered the larger FRP yacht construction revolution in 1959. North American Rockwell purchased Hatteras Yachts in 1968. Among future boat construction projects, the company embarked on a plan to build a series of heavy displacements commercial fishing trawlers that were capable of extended fishing runs beyond the range of most coastal fishing fleets of that period. Bill Boeing, Jr., who had a business association with Rockwell executives, convinced them to sell him a bare bones single screw fishing trawler for conversion into a yacht.

Mr. Boeing, Jr. purchased the new, never finished, “outward Bound” from Hatteras Yachts 1970 and subsequently transported the vessel to Seattle, WA. At that juncture, Mr. Boeing commenced on a two-year yacht conversion project. Conversion blueprints were designed by Jack Hargrave; the result of which created the magnificent singularly unique Long Range Cruising yacht that was known then and now as the “Outward Bound.” Savvy and knowledgeable Lone Range trawler enthusiasts consider the vessel to be the American genesis of the modern-day full displacements fiberglass trawler yachts like the well-respected trawler yachts that were subsequently constructed by Hatteras, Delta Marine, Northern Marine, Northaven, Willard and even boats builders who forged their craft from metal like Custom Steel Boats, Reels Ship, ABD Aluminum Yachts and Metal Craft. 

According to Mr. Boeing no expense was spared during the conversion process. Not even his wife or trusted accountant were aware of the money spent to fun the conversion refit. The Boeing Company, their contract partners and top-of the line Pacific Northwest boat building craftsman fabricated the components and materials required to complete the project.   Items like the autopilot, stabilizers, refrigeration/freezer systems, plumbing, heating-air conditioning were engineered and built to the highest standards while the meticulous details were designed and engineered and built by Jack Hargrave and fabricated by trusted Boeing Aircraft subcontractors. Even the windows, frames, doors, and superstructure received the Hargrave scrutiny. The design requirements and fabrication operation was supervised by Bill Boeing and the Boeing Company engineers.

The “Outward Bound” fuel capacity was reduced to 11,000 gallons during the yacht conversion to accommodate the below deck master suite and two guest staterooms with full baths. The smaller main deck which included 3 staterooms forward were rearranged to create a head, pantry/dry goods storage area and roomier galley located forward of the main salon. The “outward Bound” conversion success subsequently inspired the series of Hatter Long Range Cruising yachts (158 built from 42 to 77 feet) that generated an almost cult-like following and respect of the serious cruising enthusiasts to the present time.

Considering her quality of electronics, machinery, gear and professional deferred maintenance record; the “Outward Bound” compares favorably and exceeds many of the fiberglass and metal trawler yachts build to similar dimensions during the past four decades. She is a serious 175 ton displacement small ship capable of long ocean passages in comfort and safety with an extraordinary fuel burn rate averaging one gallon consumption per nautical mile. Her six inch thick solid fiberglass hull, the reliable365 HP Caterpillar diesel main engine, the zero angle 5 inch diameter tail shaft, the 49 inch pitch X 72 inch diameter four blade bronze propeller, the 45,000 lbs. steering quadrant and the 10 foot tall X 4 foot wide barn door rudder only begin to illustrate the magnificent merits of this trawler yachts. This rugged trawler easily qualifies as one of the most economical operating pleasure yachts on the market today. In the final analysis “Outward Bound” is hard to beat for pedigree, value, reliability, performance, comfort, safety, and economy.


The “Outward Bound” features a raised fully enclosed pilothouse configuration w 360-degree visibility, high bow full beam superstructure forward, covered side decks aft that surround the main salon, a comfortable aft deck, a modified canoe stern with a spacious bridge/boat deck for tenders, toys and sunbathing. The sloping shear line with its wide molded cap rail flows aft from the bow toward the transom and serves to command the viewer’s attention as well as creating a lasting impression of the vessel’s rugged construction. Heavy molded bulwarks and the overall appearance that leaves no doubt that this trawler is truly a serious passage making yacht. The vessel provokes a sense of well-being and confidence when sighted from any angle. The superstructure aft is recessed to allow safe passage on the side decks and to access the aft deck. The wide bridge deck overhead provides cover from inclement weather. The large salon windows provide ample sunlight to the interior, which creates a pleasant and warm interior atmosphere aboard.

The salon features good visibility with large custom fabricated window frames fitted with thick glazed windowpanes, dining located in open roomy forward portion of the main salon fitted with custom built-in refrigeration and freezer systems, which creates the capacity for six month of perishable provision for extend cruises combined with a generous pantry for dry goods and dishware.
