Hunter Marine’s latest boat hadn’t yet been launched as this issue went to press, so details were sketchy. We can surmise that the performance edge that’s crept into the line over the last few years will continue with the 39, which has short overhangs and a long sailing waterline. A new direction in styling is also evident in the swoop of the cabintop portlights. Twin wheels, the trademark B&R rig and the usual well-appointed accommodations can be taken for granted. LOA 39ft 5in, beam 12ft 11in, draft 5ft/6ft 6in, displacement 20,500 lbs. Hunter Marine Corporation: 386 462 3077.
