The Hunt Harrier 36 has a C. Raymond Hunt-penned deep-V hull, known for slicing a seaway. Construction is an Airex-cored hull, with Airlite in the deck and superstructure, which is vacuum-bagged and oven-cured with E-glass and epoxy resins.
Base power was twin 370 hp diesels. The 36 we ran had 440 hp Yanmar diesels.
Belowdecks has satin-finish cherry wood, a berth forward, a dinette to port, and a galley to starboard with a sink, fridge, microwave and cooktop. A full head is aft.
At press time, two Harrier 36 hulls were on the market, ranging from $328,500 to $335,000.

“The 36 busted water at 36 knots. The 36 rose, crested and landed, though, without a thud on the windshield. The 440hp Yanmar diesels missed no beats throughout the acceleration curve as we circled the inlet buoys and sampled the sea at various quarters. Slowing to a more appropriate 2,100 rpm and 25 knots, the express boat handled the following, quartering and beam-to seas with grace.” —Yachting, October 2007
