A high-performance luxury yacht, the Hunt 44, with its C. Raymond Hunt Associates-designed deep-V hull and two-cabin, two-head interior, is made for safe and comfortable cruising. After testing the 44 in Maine, our staff found that she offers the best features of the Hunt 52, with excellent visibility all around, superb seakeeping, a flush deck from the helm to the transom, and Hunt’s special tender garage under the cockpit. And there’s an extra cabin available if the owner chooses Volvo Penta IPS pod drives. Lots of versatility on a superb running hull created a winning design.
