C. Raymond Hunt Associates Services

C. Raymond Hunt Associates offers a full range of design, naval architecture, and engineering services to the marine industry, commercial and military operators, private clients, and manufacturers.

Our specialty is high-performance powerboat design based on the Hunt Deep-V hull pioneered by Ray Hunt 50 years ago. We have applied the concept to a wide range of vessels from 10 to 140 feet, and today it is still the most practical hull shape for speed, comfort and safety in rough seas. We have hundreds of designs in service around the world, and use the trial data and lessons gleaned from these boats in creating our new designs. Consequently, our clients can be confident that a new Hunt design will perform as intended because it is based on 50 years experience.
