The Hinckley Company, builder of America's finest yachts, today announced it has fully integrated its Hunt Yachts team into day-to-day operations as it unveils two new large expedition-ready yachts in the new Hunt 76 and Hunt 63 Ocean Series.

These new Ocean Series yachts have been drawn by the legendary Ray Hunt Design studio with a focus on offshore performance for customers looking to explore new destinations. The first of these go-anywhere yachts has been recently delivered to Europe and two others are currently in build.

"Our new Hunt 76 and Hunt 63 Ocean Series truly are the best performing cruising yachts in the world" said Mike Arieta, President of The Hinckley Company. "With speeds of 30 knots and the ability to handle conditions that would make other yachts shudder, this new generation of Hunt Ocean Series is for customers who want new experiences, to go explore their world making rapid passages and embracing the offshore route to get there" continued Arieta. "We've been excited to see that both existing Hinckley customers and existing Hunt customers have placed recent orders for our Hunt Ocean Series. We see customers interested in exploring new destinations most excited about these new yachts" said Pete Saladino, The Hinckley Company's Chief Marketing Officer.

The Hunt 76 Ocean Series has a hull length of 76 feet three inches reaching an LOA of 82 feet 3 inches with her swim platform. The beam is 19 feet 6 inches. Powered by twin Caterpillar C-32 V-12 4-stroke diesel engines with twin turbocharged aftercoolers, the Hunt 76 can reach speeds well over 30 knots and fast cruise at 29 knots. The Hunt 63 Ocean Series has a hull length of 63 feet with an LOA of 69 feet 6 inches with her swim platform. The beam is 18 feet. Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1350s the Hunt 63 can reach speeds of 31 knots and fast cruise at 26 knots.

Both the Hunt 76 and 63 Ocean Series yachts are available for order now and will be built to customer specifications. Sea trials can be arraigned in both the US and in Europe. See www.huntyachts.com for more information.
