The Hunt 80’ Sport Motoryacht series features a three-stateroom layout with a full-beam master suite amidships, plus a fourth, “bonus” bunkroom that can accommodate a child, a nanny or another member of the owner’s staff. The lower deck layout also includes a separate crew quarters aft with a double stateroom for the captain and a bunk for another crewmember. The main deck encompasses a large galley, dining area, and main saloon opening onto a large open-air aft deck sheltered by the flybridge overhang.

Have it your way

“While the Hunt 80’s naval architecture is blueprinted, we are working closely with the owner to ensure the yacht is equipped with the joinery, furnishings, soft goods, etc., of his choosing,” Willard said. The design team and builder even are willing to alter floorplans and shift bulkheads, within reason. “With Hunt, you can have it your way.”

The semi-custom Hunt 80’ and 68’ Motoryachts are only the first two examples of the wide range of yachts based on this successful hull platform that are available from the design firm and builder. “We have design for a 63-foot conventional motoryacht with a nice layout due to use of pod propulsion, which saves a lot of space,” Willard said. “At the upper end, with the mold extended to 82 feet, we get all these variants starting with the very classic 82’ Cockpit Motoryacht. We also have plans for a sophisticated 68’ Sedan Express.”

“This hull design and the versatility it gives us to offer to owners is a big breakthrough for Hunt Yachts, and the new 80’ Sport Motoryacht is the head of the train,” said VanLancker. “Our acquisition by Scout Partners in September, which made us a sister company to Hinckley, also is helping to stoke the engine because our service networks have merged, expanding our footprint. Look for more new models from Hunt in the near future.”
