Posted on Thu, Dec 4, 2014

Southern Boating's December issue features a review of the Hunt Harrier 25 Sport by writer Peter Janssen.

A cockpit al fresco dining area will be created aft by the forward-facing settee (top area of photo) and a similar aft-facing unit that will be placed near the engine room hatch.

When finished, in addition to the excellent view through the large deckhouse windows, it will have a full enclosure with an aft-facing opening toward the salon and a sliding door leading to the formal dining table to starboard. A door just aft of the galley leads directly to the weatherdecks, or opens to let in a little seabreeze as needed.
