Huntsman 28

    The Huntsman 28

    With the success of the 23' Huntress, there was now a demand for a larger boat with twin engines. So the Huntsman 28 was drawn up by Alan Burnard, with Ray Hunt's blessing and so started the range of fast sea going cruisers much sought after by discerning yachtsmen all over the world. Using the basis of the Huntress mould, this was then given more depth as the Huntress freeboard would have been too low for the longer Huntsman. This would in turn give more headroom inside the cabin and a larger boat all round.
