Hunt 68' (hull # 03) is available & intended for active use by owners who prefer, and have the experience, to be in charge of their own yachts (although a crew cabin aft permits staffing), to leave home ports astern, and to cover offshore and coastal miles with speed, comfort and efficiency. With the latest iteration of the Hunt deep-V hull, her ride is smooth, level and dry whether seas are calm or turbulent. Her passage making ability delivers best-in-class range, with a comfortable 26-28 knot cruising speed and a top speed above 30 knots. The designers did not compromise the hull to increase accommodations, yet her layout is luxurious with three staterooms (all with en-suite heads & stall showers), office/study/ pantry, plus separate crew quarters w/ en-suite head / shower (with utility / laundry room within) and dual aft outside private entrances. As with our popular Hunt 44' & 52' express motor yachts, the Hunt 68' express motor yacht offers exceptional one-level liveability with outstanding 360 degree salon & on-deck level galley views (when seated) and a convenient same level main deck which joins helm, galley, saloon and aft deck all together in a desirable and very open floor plan. Dual transom staircases provide access to a oversized hydraulic dinghy/ swim/ dive platform that further compliments the many large yacht features found on this very managable 68' platform.
This available Hunt 68' (hull #03) offers many intriguing opportunities for layout customization and multiple propulsion choices including conventional inboard shaft drives or POD drives.There is also substantial flexability with regards to interior styling with a vast selection of wood finishes, cabinet joinery & contrasting mixed wood inlays, marble & granite galley/ bath counters/ flooring, ultra-leather & designer fabrics wall & seating coverings and lighting and plumbing fixtures. Each client has the opportunity to make their own personal statement based on individual taste, requirements and intended use. All of this customization & attention to detail is being offered at a price that is substantially less than new custom one-off construction! Hull # 03 lay-up (hull only) has been completed & is awaiting an owner's new build completion specifications. This advanced molding of the hull only, has shortened the build time to approximately14 months from time of contract signing to construction completion. We are looking for a buyer who would like to take advantage of this new build opportunity with a shorter new construction completion delivery date. Interested parties please inquire for more details.
