New Model: Hunt 68 Express Motoryacht Sedan

Hunt has just recently launched its current largest build the 68 Express Motoryacht Sedan. The Hunt 68 is a design from deep Vee hull pioneer firm C.Raymond Hunt, who presented as the smaller models a down East lobster boat inspired yacht with incredible sea-keeping, and luxurious accommodation. The 68 Express will feature a standard three double cabins layout with full beam owners cabin, an office space, and a crew cabin quarters aft. The living of the 68 Express is all to be located on the main deck featuring an open plan galley with adjacent bar, L-shaped salon which can convert to a galley, and a sofa. Tender stowage will be located on the bathing platform to aft. Standard power is twin Cats 1150hp with line shaft propulsion, these giving top speeds of 28 knots. But other engine options also include smaller Cat 1036hp only available with ZF pod drives, and larger 1600 and 1900hp engines. Apart shats, and ZF pod drives, the 68 is also available with Jet drives.
