Being a custom boat builder means that we are awarded the opportunity to work with a wide range of naval architects. Here you'll find a representation of concepts from some of the designers we've collaborated with over the years. The designs are ready to be personalized and brought to life — let us help you make them your own.
While most applications of the Hunt V-hull use twin engines to take advantage of the comfortable Hunt high speed ride, there are other possibilities for modest speed and good fuel economy which are sometimes neglected. Depicted here is a 42- foot cruiser with a single 300hp engine driving a propeller partially housed in a tunnel. Full planing speed will be about eighteen knots, and fuel consumption a touch more than one nautical mile per gallon. At maximum displacement speed, eight knots, she will return some 2 nmpg. The use of a single engine not only halves the weight of the...(Read More)More details
It was a combination of things that led this client to us. They were looking for a sophisticated commuter with the capacity to ferry 15 people to their island retreat on Lake Ontario. Their research led them to a C. Raymond Hunt designed hull because of their proven ride and seaworthiness. They were also looking for a higher level of finish than is typically found in Coast Guard certified passenger vessels. An extensive study of available boats on the market left them unable to tie together the list of specific features they were after.
A subsequent web search produced...(Read More)More details

In the fall of 2012, we launched hull number one of a new series of boats that we believe will redefine offshore family sailing. Named Kiwi Spirit, Stanley Paris commissioned the Bruce Farr design in order to create a boat capable of taking him around the world in a solo, non-stop circumnavigation at age 76, with the capability to act as a performance family cruiser following this voyage.
High reliability in all sailing conditions in addition to high performance were design parameters and the rig and sail plan have been drawn accordingly. An emphasis has...(Read More)More details

The SpeedDream project is a quest to design the fastest monohull on the planet. The expectation is that SpeedDream will rival and possibly even exceed speeds achieved by comparably sized multihulls. Some of the features that make SpeedDream unique include a slender, wave-piercing hull, ultimate canting keel and stabilizing hydrofoil that creates additional righting momentum and offsets displacement. We are excited to take part in such a cutting-edge project and look forward to seeing where these technological innovations lead!
