The Surfhunter 29 has timeless Down East-inspired lines and a rough-water-capable, deep-V hull form. Single gasoline- and diesel-engine options ranged from 310 to 375 hp. Sterndrive or V-drive setups were available. The Surfhunter 29 we got aboard cruised at 25 knots with a 375 hp Volvo Penta gasoline sterndrive.

The belowdecks layout included a galley with a microwave, a V-berth for two and a head with a faucet shower.

At press time, we found six Surfhunter 29s on the market, ranging from $168,500 to $195,500.

From the Archive

“Ray Hunt drew the lines for the original Surfhunter, the boat that prompted Dick Bertram to adopt the then-revolutionary deep-V hull on the Moppie. The early Surfhunters were designed to handle the fickle (some might say dreaded) waters of shallow Buzzards Bay. Though the present-day Hunt firm has tweaked the original design, the V-hull still has a 21-degree [transom] deadrise, fine entry and spray-knocking rails.” —Yachting, October 2007
