Started in 1992, Hampton Yacht Building Company is one of the first companies from Taiwan to start yacht building in China. Jeff Chen, CEO of Hampton Yacht Group, has more than 25 years experience in the boat building industry. His family has been building the Formosa line of fine yachts in Taiwan for more than 45 years and has built more than 2000 boats over the years. Jeff Chen has spent the last 20 years filling key positions in the Hampton shipyard in Shanghai with the very best people from the top yards in Taiwan. Currently, Hampton's staff includes 200 skill workers; finish carpenters, designers, technical engineers, and naval architects.
It is this experience and expertise that we are bringing to bear on the Hampton line of fine yachts, which are designed for serious passage making. Refining the pilothouse design concept, Hampton Yachts now offers a new line of Pilothouse Yachts ranging from 55' to 75', Endurance L.R.C Ranging for 59' to 87', and a sedan motor yacht and aft cabin motor yachts ranging from 56' to 72'.
Hampton Yachts is a semi-custom yacht builder, allowing customers to input their ideas as to the layout of the interior arrangement, in addition to choosing from various woods, veneers, fabrics, and materials. We also have various standard layouts for the customer to choose from.
Utilizing the lower labor costs in China, we are able to include more details into each yacht. Compare our fine yachts with some of the world's premier yacht builders, and you will realize that Hampton's quality is second to none. With the increasing demand for Hampton yachts, and to better serve Hampton's customers in North America, Hampton Yachts USA, Inc. was established as the distributor and importer of Hampton yachts. Hampton Yachts currently has three dealers in the USA to better serve customers in each region of the country. The current Hampton dealers in the USA are: Anchor Yachts of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Hampton Yacht Group of California, and Hampton Yacht Group of Seattle, Washington. Internationally, Hampton Yachts are sold and serviced by Victoria Yachts SRL in Italy and Leigh-Smith Cruiser Sales, the Australia / New Zealand area dealer.
