KINGFISHER was launched by Huckins as Hull Number 344 on March 10, 1959, a 48 foot "Corinthian Special" named "SEA SONG III" for John A. Taylor of Clearwater Beach, FL. For safety and increased range Taylor had Huckins extend the yacht 2 feet in 1962 to install GM Detroit Diesel 653s still in use today (KINGFISHER is the only 50' Huckins 'Corinthian' model in existence).

"Although yacht building yields microscopic profits, I would exchange places with no man and there is great spiritual satisfaction in being in a closely held, financially sound little company, unrestricted in the pursuit of a single objective -- trying to build the best thing of its kind in the world.
