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 salon area of the vessel features leather couches and chairs, carpeting, all customs furnishing including enclosed fireplace, entertainment center, credenzas, dining table and entertainment system. The vessel is tastefully decorated including carpeting, window coverings, interior lighting, works of art and furnishing.
The galley is fitted with modern appliances, marble breakfast counter with beveled mirrors and the extensive refrigeration/cold plate compressor freezing system.
There are 3 guest staterooms including the master suite to accommodate owners, guest, and crew.
