From the starboard profile, we can see the various wooden elements of construction, including teek decks, mast, cabin, and toe-rail.
Hagar was built with fine attention to detail and many difficult elements – such as the curved aft rail. Below decks, she offers most of the ammenities of home with forward v-berth, head to port, large main salon and kitchen. Hagar was berthed at the Fort Walton Yacht club for a significant portion of her life and participated in local races, boy scout outings, and more. Roy’s greatest challenge is keeping up with haul-out and land storage costs for periodic maintenance. Usually moored in front of the Fort Walton Landing, Hagar provides a classic adornment to the parks water backdrop.

While out-and-about on Memorial Day, I had the opportunity to visit with her Captain and Owner Ray Hackney and tour this interesting vessel. Recently, Roy replaced the Volvo diesel – sourcing a replacement motor from Canada and performing the replacement work himself.
He has found that these costs are much lower in Pensacola, than in the local area – which nessecitates a long cruise anytime a haul-out is required.
We wish Capt Hackney the best of luck in keeping the Hagar a working part of the Fort Walton Beach waterfront.
The rather large portholes make her stand out and alos seem to make the yacht very brihgt inside comapered to many other classic yachts! According to Ray, this was Jim’s 3rd handmade sailboat and was built in approximately 2 years in Shalimar.


Hagar has had her share of local weather – including a lightning strike which claimed a fair portion of her lights and wiring and collisions with loose vessels during hurricanes.
The Hagar is a full keel boat with 5ft draft and has a 23hp Volvo Diesel for auxilliary power. Contrary to wooden boat stereotypes, the Hagar has a dry bilge and is extremely watertight.
