It’s not common to hear about a company whose international product has hardly changed in over a century. Everything from the product design to the process of creation remains true to the original blueprint of the founder. For this reason, I’m extremely honored to be doing the photography for a company whose rich history likes the minds of Henry Ford as well as other innovators of their time…
John Hacker created the first true, wooden speed boat in the early 20th century and his legacy of the Hacker Craft is still at large into today’s modern age. These stunning hand made boats are made with 100% Mahogany wood from select areas around the world. Each stage of development is treated with the same intricate care and precision that was used 100 years ago.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go on a full day shoot in hopes of capturing the charm and character that these legendary boats possess. Here are a few of the shots that I felt did a decent job accomplishing this goal.
An average Hacker Craft boat normally ranges between $100,000 – $300,000 and is easily worth every penny. Though I enjoy boats, I can’t say that I’m exactly a ‘boat enthusiast’. However, If I had a spare 1/4 million laying around, I would certainly invest in this luxury. Hopefully these shots will convince others to have the same mentality. What do you think? Do these shots do justice to the Legendary name?
