If you treasure the classic look of an old striped bass boat, you'll love the sporty new Hunt Harrier 25. This fast-touring sportboat responds to the success of the Surfhunter 25, and is intended to be more of a runabout and dayboat with a sleeker profile and more cockpit space.
The hull features the legendary Hunt deep-V, with an ultra-high-performance 22-degree deadrise, so the boat handles well and the ride is smooth and dry. Standard power is a 320-horsepower Volvo gas inboard, jackshafted to a sterndrive, which delivers speeds in excess of 45 miles per hour. The jackshaft places the engine in the center of the boat away from the transom, improving performance and clearing the stern area for fishing.

A raked windscreen and side windows offer full protection of the helm area. Two molded-in boxes in the cockpit can be used as fishboxes or baitwells.
Forward of the engine box are pedestal helm and companion seats, while an optional L-shaped settee maximizes seating for family outings. The interior includes a large
V-berth forward beneath an oversize deck hatch, marine toilet and stowage. Hunt Yachts; (508) 994-2000; www.huntyachts.com
