A combination of cutting edge technology and retro glamour, the 27’ all mahogany speedboat is hand built by master boat builders who labored more than 1400 hours to build this magnificent vessel. The gleaming hull and decks have 15 coats of varnish. The boat’s richly appointed interior boasts Neiman Marcus - style luxuries: such as a sterling silver plaque on the dashboard identifying the boat as a “Neiman Marcus Edition Hacker-Craft”, a liquor cabinet with crystal decanters, a monogrammed humidor, a matched set of monogrammed towels, champagne glasses, cocktail glasses, napkins, and much more.
The boat is powered by a Mercury Marine 8.2 High Output 425 horsepower engine (CE compliant).
Since 1939, Neiman Marcus has issued an annual Christmas catalog, a tradition of unusual and extravagant gifts not sold in its stores. In 1952, Stanley Marcus introduced a new tradition of having extravagant and unusual gifts in each year's Christmas catalog, The Christmas Book. At one point, the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog carried the distinction of being the item most stolen from recipients' mailboxes, prompting a Chicago postmaster to suggest the company switch to enclosing the catalogs in plain brown wrappers.
