TRAVELER is a beautiful example of the Hunt 44 Downeast motor yacht that offers modern technology with the timeless downeast style classic look. The Hunt-designed deep-vee hull offers a flat and dry ride, easily handling the sometimes rough Pacific Northwest waters.
Volvo IPS pod drives (updated July 2022) provide best-in-class fuel economy and spirited handling underway at cruise speeds, and as importantly make maneuvering around the dock and in tight quarters a breeze with joystick docking from three strategically located stations. With integrated Volvo dynamic GPS positioning system the pods are also capable of precise position-keeping which comes in handy while getting the yacht ready for docking.
Unlike most express boats in this size range, the Hunt 44 does not have a sunken cockpit. Her aft deck lounge area is the same level as the enclosed pilothouse salon which makes for a huge seamless entertainment space indoors and out. This arrangement also allows for perhaps the most innovative design feature on the boat: a true “garage” for the tender which opens at the push of a button so the tender with outboard can easily be retrieved on custom rollers with a remote.
Accommodations and galley features include a two-cabin/two-head layout with a queen island owners suite forward, large u-shaped designed galley and a utility room that houses the combo washer/dryer and wine bottle storage.
There are three (3) helm stations helm stations, one in the salon and port & starboard aft deck stations. Combine these with the Joystick control system and the Side-Power bow thruster and you have a very easy owner-operated yacht to maneuver around the dock.
