Improve-it = Hunt 52 Express

Hunt 52 Express Cruiser hull number 6, arrived to be the first IPS propulsion with Joystick Control. Not only does her performance exceed all expectation in ride, speed and fuel efficiency, but the layout is just perfect for those families who frequently cruise as two persons, yet occasionally might need to accommodate more couples or children and friends.  That is because the Hunt 52 Express with Volvo forward looking dual propellers pods drives can easily be designed with a three staterooms layout. The spacious salon can be arranged as a living room suite with two barrel chairs, settee and convertible dinette table.  The performance numbers are impressive and the IPS version also features smaller fuel capacity of 2270 liters, that is 290 liters less to the standard Cats 710hp shaft engined model, and 570 liters minus of the Cats 1001hp choice.  Yet with this less capacity it still delivers a range of 300 nautical miles at cruise speed.  Same as the Cats 710hp yet with less fuel. Top speed with the 690hp IPS900 is a 30 knots max, and a 25 of cruise.
