A New Twist on a Modern Classic: Surfhunter 29 Outboard Edition

Hunt Yachts introduces a new twist on a modern classic with the launch of the first Surfhunter 29 to feature outboard engine propulsion following the tremendous success of the new C. Raymond Hunt-designed, Hunt 32CC, the Surfhunter 29 continues to embody the core attributes of the Hunt brand; performance, style and a keen attention to enhancing the characteristics of the Hunt Deep-V hull. This latest iteration of the Surfhunter 29 features twin 300hp four-stroke outboard engines, with speeds to 47 knots and the smooth, dry and comfortable ride for which Hunt Yachts are praised.

The debut marks a shift for the iconic brand, long known for the wide range of propulsion choices, part of the semi-custom approach to boat building. The increased production of outboard models by Hunt represents the growing popularity of outboards and the versatility of the Hunt Deep-V hull shape. “The Hunt Deep-V is unique in its ability to accommodate a range of engine options while still delivering the celebrated capability and comfort that sets Hunt Yachts apart from mass market manufacturers. We are proud to be able to offer this range of propulsion options without sacrificing an ounce of performance, style or comfort,” remarked Hunt Yachts President, Peter Van Lancker.

A traditional New England coastal cruiser, the Surfhunter 29 features classic styling, a high-performance pedigree, cozy creature comforts and the confidence to boldly go wherever adventures lead. Whether plans include a day of fishing, an overnight at anchor or a cruise up the coast, the Hunt Deep-V guarantees a fast, dry and comfortable ride. From Cape Cod to Catalina, the Surfhunter’s enduring good looks and perfect union of form and function will turn heads and attract compliments.

Standard propulsion for the Surfhunter 29 outboard edition is twin 250hp engines, with an optional upgrade to twin 300’s for a top speed of 47 knots.
