TRAVELER is a modern classic: a state-of-the-art Hunt 44 Raised Pilothouse Express Motoryacht packed full of “big boat features” and technology with a timeless look - nothing trendy to be found here. And the way she rides- second to none. Her Hunt-designed deep-vee hull rides flat and dry and true with no surprises, easily handling the rough stuff most of us try our best to avoid these days, but which can be a fact of life in places like Nantucket Sound and Buzzards Bay.
Volvo IPS pod drives provide best-in-class fuel economy and spirited handling underway at cruise speeds, and as importantly make maneuvering around the dock and in tight quarters a breeze with joystick docking from three strategically located stations. With integrated GPS the pods are also capable of precise position-keeping which comes in handy while docking, chasing the kids or grandkids out on the Opti/420 racecourse or waiting for an ICW bridge to open.
Unlike most express boats in this size range, the Hunt 44 does not have a sunken cockpit. Her aft deck lounge area is the same level as the enclosed pilothouse salon (separated by double wide sliding glass doors) which makes for a huge seamless entertainment space indoors and out. This arrangement also allows for perhaps the most innovative design feature on the boat: a true “garage” for the tender which opens at the push of a button so the tender with outboard can easily be retrieved on custom rollers with a remote. A versatile two-cabin/two-head layout below with a large galley open to the salon above allows for civilized cruising with family or another couple.
Additional innovative features include: pantry with laundry and wine bottle storage accessed behind the stairs (also with the push of a button); five electric opening windows and an enormous electric moonroof with electric shade in the salon; electric up/down double companion settee with convertible backrest across from helm; electric up/down salon table; aft deck electric grill and refrigeration; wide swim platform with super yacht steps leading up each side and three joystick docking stations - all making for a uniquely comfortable and functional owner-operated yacht.
