HOC News | We’re Moving

HOC Yachts’ New Office

As we continue to grow, we endeavour to offer the best experience to all of our customers and those interested in HOC. To achieve this, we have decided it’s time to combine our office and test centre to the same location.

We are thrilled to announce, at the beginning of May HOC Yachts will have a new office located at Sune Carlsson’s marina in Saltsjöbaden. Moving to Sune Carlsson’s marina gives us the great advantage of being able to have both our office and a number of HOC boats on location, dedicated to providing test drives.

A thriving shipyard, marina and business place, Sune Carlsson’s will be the perfect place for HOC to continue growing as a company and to increase our offering and standing within the boat industry. Surrounded by other fantastic companies, yacht producers and boating specialists we feel confident that this is the best location to grow the future of HOC from.

Sune Carlsson’s is a short drive from Stockholm city centre and provides the perfect access point to the Stockholm archipelago. The address for Sune Carlsson’s Båtvarv is Skogsövägen 22, 133 33 Saltsjöbaden – See the new location on a map.

Initially, the dedicated test boat will be a HOC 33P Explorer, which will soon be joined by a HOC 33P Cruiser ready for the Swedish summer. We invite anybody that is interested in test-driving either of the HOC models to contact us via info@hocyachts.com or by calling +46(0) 70 324 35 15, to arrange a time to join us onboard.

We’re looking forward to this next chapter of the HOC journey and hope that you continue to follow our story.

Welcome aboard!

Allt För Sjön 2018 Report

It’s always exciting for us to exhibit in Scandinavia, even more so in Stockholm, where HOC began its story. Currently, Allt för sjön is the biggest show taking place in Sweden. The perfect opportunity for us to meet the Swedish boating community and show our latest updates onboard the HOC boats.

The opening weekend of Allt för sjön was a busy one. With the news of the recent investment from Navico, there was somewhat of a buzz around the HOC stand. There were a number of people that returned after the previous year to wish us luck and see the newest version of the HOC 33P Explorer, for this we were grateful. The show continued to be a busy one for us, and our stand received plenty of traffic throughout the week.

It was our goal to be informative, spread the HOC mission and introduce the boating community to the HOC brand. To achieve this, we designed a stand that was engaging, interactive and ultimately, informative for all those that stopped by. With three naval architects present, we were able to go into detail of the design and engineering in HOC and give visitors an insight into what it takes to take a project from concept to production. Something we feel that sets us apart, which was reinforced by the engagement and interest from the show-goers.

The show was very successful for HOC, both in terms of raising awareness and taking our place within the industry. But also in terms of interest in the boats. We will have a busy period of test drives over the coming period (once the ice has retreated), if you missed the opportunity to sign up for a test drive during the show, or are looking for a boat in time for the summer boating season then do not hesitate to contact us via info@hocyachts.com or +46 (0) 70 324 35 15.

Thank you to everyone that came by, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all and having the opportunity to show you around the HOC stand and the 33P Explorer. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.
