Appreciated by boating enthusiasts around the world, the preeminent designs of Raymond Hunt have become legendary. Godspeed is hull number one in a new series of large yachts by the design firm that bears Hunt’s name.
The Hunt 52 is a departure from the hundreds of locally built sea kindly boats in the 20-30 foot range that were, and continue to be the foundation of the company. The new big boat is a response to customer demand.
The new Hunt 52 offers classic lines and a large motor yacht feel with the seamless integration of a single level deck. A powered sunroof with opening side windows makes the salon feel spacious and airy.
The gently curved reverse transom disguises a cleverly designed dingy garage that contains yet another Hunt designed boat.
A trip down the Burma Road along Aquidneck Island’s west shore will lead you to the offices of Hunt Yachts. It is possible to learn about all of the Hunt Yachts and have a nice meal at the Marina Grille http://www.melvillegrille.com/at the same time.
