Hunt has launched its new Ocean 68 Flybridge yacht, the latest in the legendary builder’s line of classic, sea-kindly Down East cruisers. The Ocean 68 has a large extended flybridge, a custom interior, and the deep-V hull that provides a fast, safe and soft ride offshore in all kinds of conditions.
Hunt’s Ocean series already has a 56, 63, and 76; the new 68 is designed to fill the gap between the 63 and the 76. All the boats are designed to provide the best ride in their size range. The 68 gets up on plane easily, and provides a dry, comfortable ride whether its cruising at 30 knots or down at trawler speed.
Standard power comes from twin 1,136-hp CAT C-18 diesels, with a top speed of about 27 knots. Twin 1,600-hp CAT C-32s produce a 32-knot top speed, and twin 2,000-hp CAT C-32s go up to 37 knots. (Those speeds are for the express version of the 68.)
The new 68 will make captains happy, with joystick controls for fingertip steering and Humphree Stabilizing Fins that provide stability underway or at a mooring. The yacht also comes with state-of-the-art electronics and systems, including C-Zone so you can control electrical functions from an iPad.
