history of Hampton Yachts begins in Taiwan 50 years ago where the Chen
Family built the famous Formosa line of sailing yachts under the
direction of the family’s patriarch, C.Y. Chen.
In 1992 the
Hampton Yacht Building Company was established and was one of the first
Taiwanese companies to start yacht building in China. With the passing
of C.Y. Chen, Jeff Chen, Managing Director, and C.Y. Chen’s son,
together with a select few investors and the Chen Family, expanded on
his father’s vision. Jointly they built the high tech facilities of
today, and initiated the development of the very successful Endurance
LRC series, which garnered international praise.
Today Hampton Yachts employs over 200 skilled craftsmen, finish carpenters, designers, engineers and naval architects.
Hampton Yachts’ heritage began in Taiwan, the company’s success today,
is very much a contemporary story. When the world-wide sailboat market
started to soften, Hampton Yachts turned to Motor Yacht design and
construction. Many of these new motor yachts were designed in-house
under the able and talented direction of Jim Chen.
None of the
success would have been possible without the unwavering commitment to
quality; in design, construction engineering and craftsmanship. A
commitment started over 50 years ago in Taiwan, by C.Y. Chen and
carried-on today through the leadership of his son, Jeff Chen and a host
of carefully chosen craftsmen, artisans and a worldwide dealer network.
