The new Hunt 32CC redefines the term “center console” with an unusual design that combines a luxury day cruiser with the functionality of a center console fishing boat. The helm console extends all the way to port, which improves protection from the elements for the skipper and passengers, while also increasing cabin volume below and creating more sociable seating forward. Access forward is still excellent with the side walkway to starboard. We think it’s an extremely effective combination, apparently the result of much experience both building boats and running them at sea. A functional cabin contains a basic galley, storage, and a fully enclosed head with shower. On deck, family members and friends find J-shaped seating forward that accommodates up to eight adults, with additional foldaway seating aft. Seasoned fisherman will appreciate foldaway seats at the stern leaving a flush, non-skid platform for casting and reeling in the catch of the day. She has a 24-degree deadrise at the transom and a signature Ray Hunt bottom which is known for comfort when things get sloppy.
