Kha Shing was founded in 1977 and remains a family-owned shipyard. Since inception, the builder has delivered more than 1,000 yachts. Its current order book lists 18 yachts, including nine vessels being built for Fort Lauderdale-based Hargrave Custom Yachts. Since 1985, Kha Shing has built its own yachts under the Monte Fino label. In 2007, the shipyard commissioned UK-based Humphreys Yacht Design to create a fresh new look for the Monte Fino yachts in the 76- to 100-foot range. Among these is the 85-foot ecHo. The composite yacht, featuring four guest cabins, is designed with fuel efficiency in mind and has long-range abilities at lower speeds. Designed with a contemporary interior, the first ecHo 85 is expected to debut at the European boat shows in 2013. Nearly complete at the time of our visit was a new 125-foot raised pilothouse designed by and built for Hargrave Custom Yachts, which debuts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
