This is the story of a supremely gifted sailor who became one of the 20th century's most innovative designers of sail and power boats.
Today, the name C. Raymond Hunt remains synonymous with some of the most popular boats ever created. They include the classic Concordia yawls and sloops, the Boston Whaler, the pioneering 1960 Miami-Nassau race-winner Moppie, and the productionBertram 25 and 31 Sportfishermen, among others. Designers still marvel at Hunt's bold ideas for powerboats and sailboats in a variety of competitive classes. While the original 13-foot Boston Whaler pioneered a new market for versatile, safe, small boats, the deep-V hull revolutionized expectations of speed and seaworthiness. 150 duotone photos and illustrations
