PERSISTENCE stands tall at the top of the Surfhunter 25 class. She is a highly-optioned and recently-updated version of this iconic Ray Hunt design. Pride of ownership abounds. The boat is as clean as a whistle from bilge bottoms to bimini top. Slip-kept, batteries charged and raring to go. Professionally serviced and stored in the off season at the Concordia Company in South Dartmouth where the boat was built, since new.We invite your close inspection.
The Surfhunter 25 is a legend on the nasty, choppy waters of Buzzard’s Bay where the summer sou’wester kicks up a short steep chop every afternoon trying to push all the water east of Newport up through the narrow pass of the Cape Cod Canal. The Surf Hunter was designed by Ray Hunt for these waters and originally built there in wood. She has a full 23-degree deadrise deep-V hull with a widely flaring bow to punch through the chop while staying dry. When combined with a modern sterndrive with counter-rotating props the result is best-in-class handling, performance and fuel economy with shallow draft when needed. She planes easily at 12 knots and runs beautifully from there on up through her fast cruise in the mid to high twenty knot range with max speeds above 30 knots. A timeless, purposeful design that “looks just right” to the eye.
PERSISTENCE has Dark Green topsides Gelcoat; single white boot stripe and black bottom paint. Deck Gelcoat is White with Moondust nonskid and vinyl pinstripe eyebrow with Hunt logo. All canvas and exterior cushions are tan to match the nonskid.
