Hob Nob was custom built and painted bright yellow. This definitely made her stand out in a harbor. What has made her stand out over the years is her form and function. The more time you spend on Hob Nob, the more details you find that raises her above other similar yachts. The most spacious of all the Seguins with her two cabins, fore and aft, she easily keeps two couples comfortable and private. Standing in the salon you will immediately notice her magnificent layout for offshore cruising and relaxing on the hook and the beautiful craftsmanship that engulfs it. All this is nice, but she has to sail too for anyone to be happy buying this yacht. Lyman-Morse executed Sparkman & Stephens design flawlessly. With this design and construction, whether you want to head for the Azores or just the head of the harbor you will be safe, comfortable and not be disappointed.
We all know these yachts are only as good as the maintenance program. Hob Nob's two owners have stuck to the only proven method, "preventative maintenance.' Even now as they have put her on the market they continue to invest time and money into her well-being. They love this boat and it shows their care for her. You will love it too.

There are three drawers for utensil storage.

- Cruising dacron main by Elvstrom (2012), two reef points with jiffy reefing on forward end of boom. Note: Reefing at the mast is very easy and secure because one sits on the stainless guard tubing of the dorade boxes and it is a perfectly secure seat from which all the winches and lines necessary for reefing are reachable. The hard boom vang holds the boom up without having to use a boom topping lift greatly simplifying the reefing process.
