THE HUNT YACHT BLOG
Nearly every Hunt model is on site at Hunt headquarters in Portsmouth, RI, during this busy haul-out season. It's a great time to come by and see the wide range of propulsion systems, models, and layouts that we offer. Many Hunt owners take advantage of our service/storage capabilities - we have winter storage areas both inside and out. Be sure to ask about our storage and service specials. The Open House is Friday, Oct. 10, from 3-6pm, and Saturday, Oct. 11, from 12-4pm. If you can't make it, give our sales office a call and we'd be happy to show you around at your convenience (401.324.4201).Read More
We have three exciting events taking place in September. First up is the Newport International Boat Show, Sept. 11-14, here in Rhode Island. For the first time, we'll be exhibiting alongside our sister company, Hinckley Yachts! We've created the Hinckley/Hunt Pavilion in the basin at Bowen's Wharf. Seven gorgeous yachts in one display - you won't want to miss it. To top it off, we'll be running the Hunt Challenge off the dock all four days of the show. There are still a few Challenge spots left; sign up today.
“The Hunt team gets an A+ for customer service and engineering excellence.” -Edward Cook, owner, Harrier 25 #113
Michael Ashby has joined the Hunt Yachts team as Manager of Customer Service, Quality Control and Warranty. “Michael’s background is a unique combination of yacht design and project management,” says Hunt Yachts’ President Peter VanLancker. “His ability to interpret engineering designs, combined with his extensive knowledge of yacht construction, is a perfect fit for Hunt as we continue to grow and expand our manufacturing capacity.”
Hunt Yachts invites you to experience "high-performance" first hand with our new event, the Hunt Challenge. The Hunt Challenge is a private test drive with a Hunt Yachts team member who will demonstrate the outstanding performance characteristics that set Hunt Yachts apart from the competition. Smooth, level planning; tight, controlled turns; stability and tracking in following seas; and a dry, comfortable ride are just a few of the maneuvers that will impress participants who take the Hunt Challenge.
