Successful companies have responded by focusing on quality construction, classic beauty, fuel efficiency and versatility to attract educated buyers who demand bang for their bucks.

Sea Hunt Boats
Sea Hunt incorporates a progressive V in the bottom of their boats. At the transom, the angle is between 15 and 21 degrees, depending on the model, and progresses to 50 to 60 degrees at the entry. The benefit is that a 15- to 21-degree deadrise will be more stable when at rest, and when you throttle up, Sea Hunt’s will come on plane quicker, without excess bow rise. This also aids in the boats’ tracking flat through turns. The Carolina flare is a classic look and it keeps the boats dry and comfortable.
