Hunt Yachts Announces Biggest Boat Yet
Portsmouth's Hunt Yachts has announced it is building it's largest boat ever, an 80-foot Sport Motoryact.

The yacht was commissioned by an "experienced yachtman" who also owns a Hunt Harrier 25-footer, according to a release.

The new boat features a hull and superstructure designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates. It will be powered by twin 1,600 horsepower diesel engines mated to Hamilton water-jet drives. It should be able to speed up to 31 knots while leaving a draft of just 4 feet.

It will launch in the summer of 2015.
