Hunt Yachts said it is building its largest model yet — an 80-foot Sport Motoryacht — for an experienced yachtsman who also owns a 25-foot Hunt Harrier.

Hunt said that like the rest of its range of traditionally styled, elegant, functional and performance-oriented vessels, the Sport Motoryacht features a hull and superstructure designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates, whose founder, Ray Hunt, invented the deep-vee hull.

Powered by twin 1,600-bhp diesels mated to Hamilton water-jet drives, the new yacht is projected to have a top speed in excess of 31 knots, combined with a draft of just 4 feet.

It is due to launch in the summer of 2015.
