Pedigree

Innovation & experimentation have been at the heart of Hunton’s philosophy for almost forty years. By pushing the boundaries in racing, we've learned how to develop better & better production boats with an unrivalled performance and handling.

Driven by the uncompromising quest for excellence, our commitment has always been to build beautifully designed, precision-engineered boats that are the best of their generation.

Passion

From a customer perspective, ordering a Hunton is an inspiring, highly creative process. It's more like commissioning a work of art than buying a boat. Being involved throughout each stage, makes it a truly bespoke process. Paint finishes, upholstery, technology, fixtures and fittings. Even the smallest detail can be worked into an individual’s design.

For us, it's a labor of love. Every boat is hand-built to order. It gives our team immense satisfaction to be able to deliver a unique expression of a customer’s personality, that they will enjoy for years to come.
