The Hunton XRS43: performance and panache
Hunton, the British luxury powerboat manufacturer, was founded by the offshore powerboat racer Jeff Hunton 30 years ago. Considered as the “Aston Martin of the Seas”, Hunton’s powerboats are well known for their degree of customization. In fact, to create a powerboat, Hunton‘s design department teams up with the final customer to create the exact boat that will fulfill the customer’s dreams.
The latest in a long line of excellent ships is the XRS43: timeless elegance, exquisite finishes and seductive power.
Hunton boasts a pedigree second to none: a racing heritage spanning more than three decades, with countless championship wins and a glittering trophy cabinet. The Hunton XRS43 is truly Hunton as it features a race-inspired deep V hull.
In terms of engine, the Hunton XRS 43 is equipped with twin Cummins 480hp and has a top speed of 60 knots.
If you want a thrilling blend of speed, exhilaration and fun, you can request other engine specification such as twin 662 hp Mercury Racing petrol engines with NXT drives or twin 700 hp SCi supercharged MerCruisers, which may take you up to 75 knots.
The XRS43 is probably the ultimate combination of performance and luxury, the perfect mix of power and elegance. The Hunton XRS43 offers good head height, a spacious salon, separate heads and shower, a well-appointed galley and a double berth, with teak decking, leather upholstery and bespoke design finishes as standard.
The stylish interior also includes a wine refrigerator, a watch-winder, a temperature-controlled humidor, and a lounge seating instead of a bed. The sleek outlook, clean lines, unparalleled attention to details, as well as the use of high-end materials underscore the manufacturer’s desire to create something truly beautiful.
As Fiona Pool, Managing Director of Hunton said : “We’ve always said that the team at Hunton are up for a challenge, and this commission was certainly that! As well as overcoming the obvious engineering challenges, we’ve set about creating a boat designed to tick every box for this particular customer, which is exactly how we feel successful businesses should be run. It’s not about what we want, it is about fulfilling our customers’ dreams.”
