HOC 33P Cruiser at Monaco Yacht Show

HOC 33P Cruiser – Tender to 125 of the World’s Most Exclusive Superyachts

Each year, the Monaco Yacht Show curates an exhibition of 125 extraordinary one-off superyachts, built by the world’s most respected shipyards and welcomes 580 leading companies from the yachting industry.

From September 27th – 30th, the yachting industry turns its focus exclusively to Monaco for this prestigious event

This year, HOC have partnered with Behnemar Luxury Yacht Agency to utilise the HOC 33P Cruiser as a tender to their extensive fleet of superyachts during MYS. This provides HOC with a unique opportunity to welcome potential superyacht buyers, brokers and journalists onboard during the show.

We hope to bring increased exposure to HOC as an international brand and to the HOC 33P Cruiser which is ideally positioned to make an exceptional superyacht tender and chase boat.

To those that will be on the Frech Riviera during this time and are interested in test driving the HOC 33P Cruiser, please contact us to arrange a time to join us onboard.

HOC Selected in ‘Top-Five’ Boats at Cannes Yachting Festival

What a fantastic week we had on the French Riviera, introducing the HOC brand and the 33P Cruiser to the Mediterranean market.

We exhibited the boat in the Vieux Port of Cannes, set to the backdrop of the stunning old town on one side and the famous Palais des Festivals on the other.

During the show, we took part in the ‘Concours d’Elegance’ a parade for vintage, classic and modern boats. The HOC 33P Cruiser stood out from the crowd and strongly represented innovation, new technologies and functional design.

The reception of the HOC 33P Cruiser was exceptionally encouraging from all those that came onboard and experienced the first HOC on the French Riviera. We had an especially busy week test driving with many journalists in the ever-changing conditions of the Mediterranean Sea, where the performance, comfort and innovation of the HOC 33P Cruiser were all in focus and extremely well received.

In both French and Italian boating magazines, we were selected in the Top Five boats of the show out of the 600 boats that were present. This is something that we are extremely honoured to have been selected for.


Update from Cannes Yachting Festival

Cannes Yachting Festival has been a big event in the HOC summer calendar and as the biggest floating boat show in Europe, it has been the perfect platform for the international launch of HOC Yachts.

During the show, we have been running test drives with many journalists from both local and international boat publications (links to any articles will be published here).

The HOC 33P Cruiser has been exceptionally well received with a great amount of interest in the innovation and new technologies onboard, as well as in the beautiful lines and design.

With the HOC 33P Cruiser looking perfectly at home on the French Riviera, we have managed to capture many beautiful photos during the Cannes Yachting Festival, to view the images simply click here.

Sea-Fire onboard HOC

In a recent edition of “Superyacht Business” magazine, there was an article titled, “Equipment Advances”. In this article, the president of Sea-Fire, Ernie Ellis commented about the innovative new extinguishing agent NOVEC 1230 that they use in their systems and that we have onboard all of the HOC boats.

Below is an excerpt from the article –

“We don’t use C02 products and are leading the industry by offering safer and [more] environmentally responsible solutions with clean extinguishing agents. We use the NOVEC 1230 extinguishant. It keeps equipment and people safe.”

NOVEC 1230 lets Sea-Fire offer a 20-year “Blue Sky” warranty, according to Ellis, that will not be impacted by upcoming emissions legislation. “This vapour is safe for human exposure and removes heat energy until the fire cannot sustain itself,” he says. “it’s also electrically non-conductive, non-corrosive and residue-free. so it won’t damage valuable equipment.”

This is one example of the superior components that are implemented throughout the HOC 33P. We take pride in sourcing the most appropriate components of the highest quality to ensure that the standard of boating onboard a HOC is nothing but the best.
