The only thing I can tell you about Hines Farley yachts is that I can see his place where he built these boats years back from our new house.. I think his last yacht out of Suffolk, Va. was about 10 yrs back but it may have been longer. Some of the molds still sit out on the lot.

These boats are incredible, some of the best boats built as far as quality. I too live around the corner from melvin hines. These molds used to be for sale not sure if anyone got them.

I met Sonny Hines many many years ago when i was stationed at Oceana . His nephew had a boat at the marina where ours was berthed. He was from a family of Chesapeake work boat builders. He told me that he was it was sad that he could not afford one of his own boats. I know very little about the boats themselves other than they are gorgeous.

Yes I do know her she was biult in Rescue and when Sonny moved to Suffolk out on Bennetts Creek she sat out of the water in older metal biulding that was next to the New one.
My father biult metal biuldings and while his company was doing work for them I looked at her I think in about 1985-86 time frame while they were still finishing her up.
If you really want to know some more about her I am friends with his shop foreman from that era of time who does all of my upholstery work.
From knowing Hines Farleys work I am sure she is super well biult

I was on this boat when it was being refitted in Stuart. Owner dumped a lot of money into it, probably more than 2-3X what he is asking.

I think it was the first Hines-Farley built and the only 34. It is a big 34, similar to 35 Carolina Classic or 32/33 Topaz, with yacht quality and good value for the price.

From the description:


"Sonny Hines caught his first Marlin on this boat which was built for Dr. Farley."

Who was Dr. Farley, and why did his name continue to be attached to the company after this boat? Did he finance the company or something?

Sonny and Dr. Farley were partners in the beginning.

This boat was completely redone six or seven years ago at Hines Farley. The engines, generator, tower, etc are brand new. However, the problem is that the motors had about 50 hours put on them and then they didn't get cranked for about five years. Hence, she has been high and dry for a while. The motors will require some work, but not too much. A mechanic will need to go through and check anything to do with the fuel lines, tanks, injectors, etc. Regardless, this boat remains a very good buy. I typically mention this boat to any client I have that is looking for an express boat. All Hines Farley boats are well built. Feel free to PM if you have any questions. I have spoken to the listing broker several times about the boat.

I may have been mistaken--but I thought the boat was refitted in Stuart Fl, at least some of the work was done there---I saw it in Bill Knowles shop.

Somebody is taking a lot of care and love with a Hines-Farley 63. It is at Jarrett Bay getting a complete rebuild. It will be 66 when it splashes sometime this year.

My grandad Sonny Hines, who built this boat tolerates no ifs and buts in anything he does....these boats are not built anymore but still hold their name in sportsfishing industry.

Yep, I've set a crane up on the hill and put some of his boats in the water years ago, and then went over to the marina and put the tower on it after it came under the highway bridge that was to low to get under with the tower on it.
Is Sonny still living ? I hope so.
Beautiful Boats.
I believe they were built in the old Collard Green canning plant/factory.?
