The Hunt 32cc is a versatile design that combines the key attributes of a day boat with the functionality of a center console fishing boat and the added benefit of the authentic Hunt deep-V hull. The Hunt 32cc (32’1″ LOA, 10’6″ beam) features plenty of space to stow fishing rods and wakeboards, and offers forward seating for eight passengers. Powered by twin Yamaha F250 outboard engines, the Hunt 32cc runs to a top speed of 45 mph. Hunt’s innovative extension of the center console—reaching from centerline to the port rail—allows for an aft-facing, walk-in companionway leading to the interior. Because it faces aft, getting to the enclosed head, the galley and bunk/rod storage is convenient and easy. This companionway configuration is also family friendly—kids can go below in safety even when the boat is running. The extension of the console makes room for the microwave, mini fridge and counter space of the galley, while the console itself enables standing headroom in the head/shower area. A single bunk with rod stowage is tucked neatly beneath the forward seating. While underway, the extended console offers more protection than a conventional center console, and three adults can shelter behind the wrap-around windshield. The expansive flush cockpit is roomy and inviting, and the aft seat folds out of the way for access to the integral aft swim platform.
