Hunt Yachts recently added three new models to their Coupe line for the 2010 season: the Surfhunter 29, Surfhunter 33, and Harrier 36. The first Harrier 36 was christened on November 6 in Newport, with the second hull under construction and scheduled for a spring 2010 launch. A Surfhunter 29 was launched earlier this summer in Newport and was a favorite choice as a chase boat during the many summer regattas.
