Raymond “Ray” Hunt was a self-taught designer with an instinctive understanding of the principles of yacht design. His profound, uncanny knowledge of how to move a boat through the water is derived from a skill no tank test or formula can replicate. His diverse portfolio of timeless designs includes the Concordia yawl, 12 Meter America’s Cup yacht Easterner, Bertram powerboats and the Boston Whaler. Ray’s breakthrough Deep-V hull design has withstood the test of time. After decades of attempts by others to design a better high performance hull, the Hunt Deep-V continues to dominate powerboat design into the 21st century. Hunt patented the high-deadrise and Deep-V in the late fifties and early sixties.
