Project: Hunt 44

Following the introduction of the 52 flagship in early 2009, Hunt Yachts follows it with a similar slightly smaller 44 project also aimed at filling the void left between the old large 36 Harrier model. If it ain't broken don't fix it or so they say, and the 44 follows similar exterior line looks, wanting to capture Hunt owners and fans who taught the 52 was too big to own and handle. The 44 has a plan of a two cabin, two head lower deck. To note here is the very spacious owners en-suite head, with separate shower stall. The guest cabin is a two berths in a bunk cabin configuration. The main deck will be fully dedicated to relaxing and entertaining of the guests and owners, and will be of the patio door easy to close type. Here is a longitudinal saloon, with two moving sofas, which if desired can be moved to the outside deck. A galley is located below. Tender stowage also follows the 52 style with a garage able to handle a well sized private water craft. Power starts from the smaller optional Volvo 435hp IPS propulsion unit, to the standard twin Cats 455hp on shaft drives. Other optional units are Cats 567hp, to the most powerful 593hp Cummins. This last should give 30 knots top speed as does the smaller engine but more efficient Volvo IPS optional.
