The pedigree of Hunt Yachts design needs no introduction.
Designed and patented by Ray Hunt as “the” Deep-V hull, the Hunt 52 oozes timeless grace and ability. This rare EU model from 2010 sports a beautifully-finished master stateroom forward, cherry interior joinery, tender garage and passarelle, upgraded air-conditioning and relaxed cruising thanks to her twin C-12 Caterpillars on shafts. With a shaded aft cockpit, wide flush teak-laid decks, and a level of finish that is second to none, the 52’s classic lines and effortless manners at sea, make her a truly usable proposition that is lusted after by yachtsmen and power-boaters alike.
HIGHLAND LASSIE has been owned from new and doted on, spending her winters under cover, and her summers day-cruising the Mediterranean and more recently UK waters. She is managed by a full time skipper regardless of cost and presents in turn-key condition, with a specification that is sensibly customized as only Hunt Yachts can.
The Hunt 52 has a super smooth hull design that has zero vibration even through broken water, and has been the choice of commercial and professional agencies, as well as the recreational market – delivering a cushioned upwind ride with excellent natural stability at speed. Below decks, she has the inboard arrangement: the u-shaped galley to port, facing the second cabin (en-suite & day-head/shower forward to starboard) – with master stateroom and en-suite nestled in the bow, and the forward-facing berth is perfect for star gazing.
At the helm her console and tall windows provide outstanding visibility at every angle, the skipper and crew are spoiled, with elegant detailing, plenty of rounded profiling and stacks of comfortable seating. The wheelhouse sole leads directly out onto the aft cockpit through the glazed aft bulkhead, typical of the Express-style cruiser, and the bathing platform gives easy access to the garage (with its matching custom Hunt shell-back dinghy). This owner asked Hunt to add a telescopic letterbox passarelle for ease of Mediterranean stern-to berthing, and specified twin thrusters with her electronic Glendenning throttles to make close-quarter handling a complete pleasure.
The electronics on-board have been significantly upgraded with the latest C-Zone Digital switching package, connected via a Peplink 3G /4G router, the yacht systems can be managed through a touch screen tablet anywhere on board. Remote access is available from the sentinel mobile application, providing instant data and notifications of any potential issues, for complete piece of mind. On top of this a 22” Garmin HD Chart plotter display has been installed with camera monitoring for the engine room and stern mooring.
HIGHLAND LASSIE is stunning on the water and astonishingly quiet when cruising. A rare find that will keep you at ease no matter the weather.
Yachting Press Comments
“The real pleasure of a Hunt Yacht comes from driving it, and the 52 is set up with a well-thought-out helm and navigation area. There is a good, all-around line of sight at the helm, and the finely crafted Hunt steering wheel is a work of art…Sliding open the glass door that leads to the saloon, the appeal of the yacht’s single-level deck design became obvious. With the door open, the combined area of the aft deck and main saloon becomes one-perfect for taking a dozen or more guests on a scenic day cruise.”
