Book - 2017
Rate this:
This is the first book-length biography of C. Raymond Hunt, whose skill at the helm and skill at the drawing board made him a legend in his own time. Today, 37 years after his death at age 70 in 1978, Hunt is recognized as one of the most influential yacht designers of the 20th century. His most enduring designs, the Concordia yawls and sloops, and the original Boston Whaler, are recognized as classics of form and function. His development of the deep-V hull, on which he briefly held a patent, was the basis for many of the high-speed, mono-hull powerboats that followed. In his wake, he left an enduring legacy that continues today in the firm that bears his name, Hunt Associates of New Bedford, Massachusetts.
