With its iconic deep-V hulls dating back to C. Raymond Hunt and the original Bertram 31 Moppie in 1960, Hunt Yachts knows how to build fast, agile and seaworthy boats. Now, the new Hunt Surfhunter 32 powered by twin 250-hp Yamaha outboards, it has updated a classic to give it both more zip (top speed 44 knots) and more room in the cockpit. The hull on the new 32 is an evolution of the popular Surfhunter 29, now stretched with an Armstrong bracket to fit the four-stroke outboards. The outboards, says Hunt President Peter Van Lacker “are simple, fast and the handling is sportier. The range is greater so you can go a little further, faster.” The redesigned cockpit in the Surfhunter 32 has aft seating with plenty of entertaining (or fishing space).
The bridgedeck has an L-shaped settee to port with a custom varnished teak table on a removable stainless steel pedestal base. Visibility from the helm starboard is excellent all around. Varnished teak companionway doors lead to overnight accommodations below, including a full-sized V-berth, enclosed head and shower, and a galley with a single-burner stove, fridge, microwave, and Corian countertop. The hull, designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates, is solid E-glass bottom laminate with foam-cored topsides and a vinylester osmosis barrier.
