GANNET | Hunt Yachts Surfhunter 25 | 25ft


Marion, MA, US


GANNET is a classic Hunt Yachts Surfhunter 25 stored and serviced by Burr Brothers Boats in Marion, MA, and operated out of Sippican Harbor on the testy waters of Buzzards Bay for which this hull was designed. 

THE most capable 25-footer in existence. A classic example of form following function. This beauty features a Flag Blue gelcoat hull with single white boot stripe and red bottom. Gelcoat surfaces are white with tan nonskid and matching tan exterior cushions with the iconic custom channeling vinyl with contrasting blue piping. Canvas is tan for a coordinated look. 

If ever there were a 25-foot boat that can handle the choppy waters of Southern New England, this is it.  Incredibly dry riding thanks to 'Carolina bow flare' before the term was even coined, along with an extra pair of strakes on the bottom. This was a grand slam of a design from Ray Hunt himself. No trim tabs are needed as the boat is stable thanks to subtle chine flats, and rides flat with the stern drive trimmed down and bow up enough in a following sea for the best tracking power boat you will ever experience.  And a true deep-vee hull with 23 degrees of deadrise at the transom. She planes easily at 12 knots and runs comfortably from there on up to her fast cruise of 28 knots all day long. 

Hull #11 has been completely serviced by Burr Brothers and is being offered in full commission for the upcoming summer. Topsides are polished. Stern drive serviced. Bottom painted. And of note the engine just had a complete cooling service including servicing the heat exchanger, replacing exhaust riser gaskets, water pump impeller, thermostat etc. 

Worthy features include:  a bow thruster; upgraded Volvo Ocean X sterndrive; very recent Garmin 12" GPS plotter; convertible bimini with full curtain enclosure which may be folded back and zipped into a fitted cover or removed altogether from the boat; optional Kenyon Kiss single burner butane stove and optional Vacu-flush freshwater toilet.

An ergonomic helm. Fore/aft engine box seating with removable back rest and a full width and convertible stern settee. Wide side decks with handrails on the side windshield frame and proper stainless bow rails make getting up to the foredeck for bow riding, fishing or tending the anchor or the mooring practical and safe. 

Conscientious ownership and professional care make all the difference and GANNET has benefited from years of both with indoor storage in the offseason. We invite your close inspection.
