Hunt 72 Nears Completion

Excitement builds as the new Ocean Series yacht gets close to launch!

Fifteen months have passed since the commissioning of the Hunt 72, and many, many hours of design and build work have gone into the project. That time has been well spent on spectacular results, as you’ll see the picture gallery below.

Some of her key features:

  • A custom layout. Available on every Ocean Series yacht.
  • Custom furniture. Owners can choose their own designer, or are provided one to work with to create their dream interior.
  • Ease of operation. Owner operation is a real possibility, thanks to the CAT 360 controls and remote docking technology.
  • Stability. The Seakeeper gyros and Humphrey active stabilization system keep the boat steady and prevent unwanted motion both at rest and while underway.

Now it’s time for sea trials, inspection and surveying. Hunt Yachts President Peter Van Lancker will personally oversee this stage of the process, assuring the seaworthiness of the vessel at every level. We expect the first Hunt 72 to arrive at Hunt headquarters in Portsmouth, RI by July 2016!

Stay tuned for updates and upcoming opportunities to see her for yourself!
