Hunton Yachts At Newport & Norwalk Boat Shows


Along with Hamptons royalty, the sailing glitterati and the cream of Manhattan, Hunton Yachts has spent a very successful summer in Sag Harbour, where the Hunton XRS43 has been widely acclaimed for its style, looks and performance. Sag Harbour in the Hamptons is an historic sailing hamlet and whaling port since the 1700’s. It is now more famous as a holiday destination for sailing enthusiasts, with its stunning sailboats, impressive power boats and picturesque Main Street with fashionable shops, art galleries and acclaimed restaurants. Not to mention the super yacht belonging to the mayor of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett!


After viewing and taking the Hunton XRS43 out for a spin, an enthusiastic Sag Harbour yacht expert commented:


“The Hunton XRS43 far exceeded expectations, and my expectations were already high. I have never driven a boat with such stability, performance and quality of finish.”


Following on from the rave reviews in the Hamptons, Hunton is showing at the Newport International Boat Show in Rhode Island from the 15th to the 18th of September. This is the first time Hunton will have exhibited in Newport and can be found at Bannister's North Docks. Only three hours from New York, Rhode Island is the perfect venue to show off the Hunton Yacht to a new audience and the perfect place to take the boat out and experience its amazing handling, speed and luxury specifications.


Every feature on a Hunton XRS43 is truly unique, from the clean lines and race-inspired stepped hull to the hidden technology that delivers its superb handling. Powerful, yet supremely luxurious, driving the XRS43 presents a thrilling blend of speed, exhilaration and fun. The 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. This is truly the Bentley Continental of luxury yachts.


After Newport Hunton will be showing at the Norwalk Boat Show from the 22nd to the 25th of September, at booth BW21 in the Norwalk Cove Marina. Norwalk is on Connecticut’s Gold Coast, a short trip from metropolitan New York and a must see for anyone who loves boats and sailing. Every US and international yachting brand will be there. Aside from the fantastic yachts, Norwalk is also well known for its delicious oysters, vibrant bistros, idyllic islands, fantastic fishing and diverse wildlife.


This will be a unmissable opportunity to get acquainted with this legendary British luxury brand up close and to enjoy the superior handling, performance and luxury styling. Hunton Yachts are celebrated for their bespoke yacht design and innovation, and all hand made in England, down in Hampshire. Hunton was founded in 1979 by legendary offshore powerboat racer Jeff Hunton who wanted to use his experience in superior hull design to create the ultimate luxury yacht. He won the British Offshore Powerboat Championship six times, a hugely impressive feat. Fiona Pool, the CEO of Hunton, formerly Head of European Trading at Goldman Sachs, is shaping the brand to create the most innovative, high quality luxury yachts of the future, blending the finest materials, superior design and the highest quality craftsmanship.
