As of January, Darrell and Leslie Allen are the new managing partners and majority shareholders of Hake Marine LLC, the builder of Island Packet and Seaward Yachts.

The Allens own Suncoast Yachts in San Diego, which has been an Island Packet Dealer for more than 20 years.

Their first action was to roll back prices on the Island Packet models to 2008 levels and they also have reduced prices on Seaward models. This is possible because of a streamlined facility, good standing with vendors and a strong financial position.

There is a strong dealer network in place to assist customers across the country, Darrell Allen said.

“We are committed to working with our dealers and clients in creating a semicustom boat that meets each buyer’s unique wants and needs,” Allen said on Whiteaker Yacht Sales’ website.
