Review of Hughes 25

Basic specs..

The hull is made of fibreglass. Generally, a hull made of fibreglass requires only a minimum of maintenance during the sailing season. And outside the sailing season, just bottom cleaning and perhaps anti-fouling painting once a year - a few hours of work, that's all.

The Hughes 25 is equipped with a fin keel. The fin keel is the most common keel and provides splendid manoeuvrability. The downside is that it has less directional stability than a long keel.

The boat can enter even shallow marinas as the draft is just about 0.98 - 1.08 meter (3.22 - 3.52 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.

Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Hughes 25 is 1.84, indicating that this boat could - if evaluated by this formula alone - be accepted to participate in ocean races.

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 5.8 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Hughes 25 is about 85 kg/cm, alternatively 478 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 85 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 478 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Hughes Boat Works

Hughes Boat Works was founded by brothers, Howard and Peter Hughes and first located at Willowdale, Ontario, Canada, (near Toronto) where they built small dinghies. In 1965 the company moved to Scarborough, Ontario, and from 1965 to 1967 they built the HUGHES 24 (using tooling purchased from Tanzer Industries Ltd.), the HUGHES 27 (designed by Howard Hughes), and the HUGHES 38 (Sparkman & Stevens design #1903). In 1968 the company moved to Centralia, Ontario. The HUGHES 22, 25, and 29 (designed by Howard Hughes) went into production in 1968, as did the HUGHES 38 and HUGHES 48 (designed by Sparkman & Stevens in conjunction with Hughes). In 1969 the company was sold to US Steel. Both Hughes brothers stayed with the company until 1971. The name of the company was changed to Northstar Yachts Ltd. The Northstar line of sailboats were built to plans commissioned by Hughes Boat Works, most drawn by Sparkman and Stevens. From 1971 to 1974 the company built the NORTHSTAR 22, NORTHSTAR 500(S&S design #2135 ), NORTHSTAR 1000 (S&S design #2098-C6), NORTHSTAR 1500 (S&S design #2166), NORTHSTAR 38, and NORTHSTAR 80/20 (S&S design #2134). The 24 ft NS727 and the 30 ft N900 (both designed by Bruce Farr) were introduced in 1973. In 1977 Howard Hughes purchased Northstar Yachts and changed the name to Hughes Boatworks Inc. The NORTHSTAR 600 was modified and named the HUGHES 26. A new model called the HUGHES 27 was introduced. The NORTHSTAR 1000 was stretched (by extending the stern) and fattened and renamed the H31. The NORTHSTAR 1500 was renamed the HUGHES 35, the NORTHSTAR 38 was fitted with a new interior design and called the HUGHES 38-2, and the NORTHSTAR 80/20 was renamed the H40. A variant of the HORTHSTAR 35 was built by Coronado Yachts and called the CORONADO 36. In 1979 Hughes purchased Columbia Yachts and began building Columbia boats in Canada at the Huron Park factory under the name Hughes-Columbia. New models called the HUGHES-COLUMBIA 36, 8.3, 8.7 (motor sailer), 10.7, 11.8, 42, 48 (formerly SEAFARER 48) were introduced, while at the same time production of the HUGHES 26, 31, 35, 38, 40 (ketch) continued. All models were available fully finished or in kit form. In 1980 Hughes went into receivership and the factory was closed. Hughes sold Columbia Yachts to Aura Yachts, which was also based in Huron Park. Aura built their own versions of HUGHES 35, 40, COLUMBIA 7.6, 8.7 and 10.7 under the AURA name. A version of the HUGHES 35/AURA H35 was also built by South Hants Engineering in Great Britain (called the S.H.E. 36). South Hants Engineering may have also built some North Star 1500 variants, as the S.H.E. 1500. In 1986 Hughes bought his company back once again. (Orangeville, Ontario). A model called the HUGHES 41 was built (or at least advertised) during this period. A fire destroyed the factory in 1991, and no Hughes boats (or Columbia’s) have been built since that time. Hughes Boat Works Ltd. was the largest sailboat manufacturer in Canada for several years.

Hughes Sailboats

  • Add to quote

Has anyone heard of a Hughes sailboat. We have seen one listed in our local paper, a Hughes 38. Any help?  

I owned a Hughes quarter tonner back in the 1970''s and I am reasonably familiar with Hughes as a company. Hughes was a small Canadian boat builder started in the 1960''s. They originally produced a line of boat designed by founder Howard Hughes (not that Howard Hughes) Later they were bought by US Steel and the linbe was retooled as Hughes Northstar. The Hughes Northstar boats were designed by Sparkman and Stevens and included a whole line of interesting and reasonably well built boats. I thought the boats were nicely detailed and well thought out. Most of the Northstar boats were designed to be early IOR era racer cruisers which had both good and bad design features but being biased toward being race boats they became obsolete pretty quickly. At some point US Steel left the company and the boats were retooled toward a more cruising oriented bias. This also was a mixed blessing as the weights of the boats went up and sailing abilities went down. There were several boats that might be listed as Hughes 38''s so it is hard to comment on the specific boat that you are looking at other than to say that in general Hughes built substantially better constructed boats than was the average. One of the Hughes 38 models actually shared the hull design with the Hinckley Competition 38 and the glass and gelcoat work was so good at Hughes that Hinckley chose to have Hughes actually so the hull and deck laminations. Good luck, Jeff  

I Have been living and sailing solo aboard my hughes 31''. I have travelled the great lakes, East coast and bahamas in almost every weather condition imaginable and couldn''t be happier with the boats design. before purchasing her last year I looked at several of these boats, there is an ongoing abundance of them in southern Ontario.one area to look at before purchasing one of these is the cabin top as many have a plywood core wich often become soft due to deck leaks. An article on the refit of a Hughes 31'' can also be found in a recent cruising world magazine, I think March,april or may. also "Fatty Goodlander" who cruises his hughes31 wrights regularily for cruising world magazine.Hope this information is of some help  

please pardon my eror, both the article in cruising world and fattie''s boat are hughes 38''s not hughes 31''s.  

I own a Hughes 38 aka NorthStar 38 And I love it. I use it for coastal cruising. Great for 2-12 people depending on the day. I have 7 years of experience with the boat. Reply if you have specific questions.

hughes 25 sailboat

Who can read those initial posts through all the cobwebs anyway?????  

Yikes, didn't see the date. My humblest apologies to the powers that be. Suffer the newbe.  

Hughes 31 and 38 I own a Hughes 31 and have sailed her for the past six years. This is a solid boat and has pulled me through difficult sailing conditions. My wife and I sail her in just about any codition and that is saying a lot since neither she or I are long time sailors. Our boat has a OMC saildrive, a much discussed topic on pros and cons of this type of motor, and has never let us down when we needed it. When I bought this boat a marine mechanic said " its a two stoke what can possibley go wrong with it". He was right. The Hughes 31 impressed us so much that we are now planning on buying a Hughes 38. Our grandchildren are getting bigger and we need more room. We had the 38 surveyed and and the result was very positive. The boat is in need of some cosmetic clean up in the interior but is otherwise sound and solid. It has a Volvo Penta diesel saidrive. I like the saidrive system due to its simplicity. No long shafts to bend and seals to leak. The Hughes line of boats appear to be a good buy. They are solidly built and are affordable. The Hughes 31 we own (for sale now) and 38 we are buying are both 1980 vitage but in many respects are sturdier then some of the new boats.  

Anybody know anything about a Hughes 29.5 foot sailboat?  

hughes 25 sailboat

Roy- You're really better off starting a separate thread on the boat you're asking about.  

Hugh's sail shape This is our second year with a 31 foot hugh's and starting racing for the first time last year. The sail shape is lousy. It seems to "bag and wrinkle" and no amount of adjusting flattens it out. Does anyone have any suggestions? We would like to come in another position other thean dead last every race.  

hughes 25 sailboat

Get new sails sounds like step one.... But other than that there were several Hughes that were 31 feet. The IOR derived is marginally suited to racing under PHRF, the 31 footer that was previously produced by Columbia would be pretty hard boat to race competatively. Jeff  

Set your sails up for heavy breeze(Halyard,outhaul and vang on pretty good) if you cant flatten your sail with your controls on.. the sail is cooked. It is possible that it may not even be the right sail for the boat, someone may have just found a deal on a sail that was close to the right size and slapped it on. Also if you like the Hughes you should check out a Hughes 38. You can get some nice ones for a very reasonable price.The boat was Sparkman Stevens designed and would make a much better racing boat than the 31.  

hughes 25 sailboat

I don't get all the posts from #6 through #10. I'm looking at a Hughes 38 in 2011 and would have been interested in any post or info, even if posted back in 2000. What do I not understand?  

hughes 25 sailboat

did you ever buy the hughes 38?  

there is a Hughes 38 for sale in Sackets Harbor in NY. Ive noticed some interesting details in the description. "Additional Information Trim Tab with control at Wheel" AND "Sails & Rigging Rod Rigging" i thot that only the Hinckley version had the trim tab. Perhaps some Hughes 38s had them as well? Or perhaps this is a trim tab on the rudder? Anyone hear of a Hughes 38 with ROD rigging? jon  

hughes 25 sailboat

thats the boat thanks jon  

here is a photo of the Hinckley Competition 38. the trim tab can be seen just forward of the jack stand in the last photo. 1970 Hinckley 38 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com  

hughes 25 sailboat

I have a pretty good opinion of Hughes boats but Yowza! none of them, even heavily customized, ever looked remotely like that. P.S. keel trim tabs are a stupid complexity for little more than a theoretical benefit. Banning them or penalizing them out of existence was a very wise move on the part of the powers that be (or were).  

My first boat was a Hughes 25 -a pretty decent classic style little boat. I traded it, along with you much money for a newer style boat with "wheel" steeering, interior teak, and poor quality. When the new smell wore off, I was at once in want of my old Hughes -tiller and all! Cheers  

Yeah, but isn't that one of the ones built on Hughes mouldings?

    Done a little research on these boats. (none of this is certain) The Hughes 25 is an update of the Hughes 24 which, in turn, is very similar to the Nutmeg 24, designed by William Shaw (of Pearson fame) The modifications to the 24 included a different deck and coach roof, a fixed keel and spade rudder. (the 24 had a centerboard).
