The Hunt 25 Surf Hunter is a legend on the nasty, choppy waters of Buzzard's Bay where the summer sou'wester kicks up a short steep chop every afternoon trying to push all the water east of Newport up through the narrow pass of the Cape Cod Canal. The Surfhunter was designed by Ray Hunt for these waters and originally built here in wood. She has a full 23-degree deadrise deep-V hull with a widely flaring bow to punch through the chop while staying dry. Hunt has added features and improved the cockpit layout by moving the engine forward. This allows space for an optional full-width stern seat or more fishing room with the seat removed. Updated features include: on deck stowage lockers; rod racks recessed under the side decks; a molded console with room for flush-mounted electronics; gas or diesel power; 40 mph speed with a 320 hp economical inboard-outdrive; a roomy cuddy for overnighting including V-berth, toilet, a large opening deck hatch and two portlights with screens, counter space for a stove with locker and drawers, and a vanity with sink and pressure water; low maintenance polyethylene trim above and teak trim below.
