Vessel Walkthrough


The Hunt Yachts Surfhunter 25 is a culmination of decades of design and engineering by one of yachting’s most influential designers.  Everything from the legendary Hunt Deep V hull, timeless aesthetics, superb build quality and thoughtful ergonomics are combined in such a remarkable way that it’s hard to believe you are on only 25 ft. of boat.  This sporty, capable small yacht is quite likely the finest small vessel you will ever own and operate.

VARUNA is just about the perfect boat for enjoying the water in a multitude of ways.  From cruising around the Chesapeake Bay, fishing in Nantucket Sound, heading to dinner on the water with friends or towing the kids in a tube, the SURFHUNTER 25 excels in all areas.  The fabulously attractive lines of the pedigree Hunt Deep Vee hull form and will catch the eye of the experienced yachtsman and garner compliments in any harbor.

VARUNA is a low hour, Hinckley-maintained example of the venerable classic.  She sports new Garmin electronics (2021), electric fuel pump (2020), manifolds and risers (2020), battery charger (2020), newer canvas, good cushions, and is in fine condition and ready for immediate use.  In September 2022 Hinckley Yacht Service began replacement of her outdrive which will be completed shortly.
