Hunt Yachts expands with regional sales offices

Hunt Yachts LLC is adding two new regional sales offices.

The Hinckley Co. Great Lakes sales director Marty Letts and Pacific Coast sales director Kelly Nuttall will now offer the entire range of Hunt Yachts’ performance motoryachts from 25 to 80 feet, in addition to the Hinckley line.

This expansion of the Hunt Yachts sales network is part of a strategic plan that was developed after Hunt was acquired by Hinckley’s corporate parent, Scout Partners, last September.

“I’m very excited to have the Hunt product line here on the Great Lakes,” Letts said in a statement. Letts manages Hinckley’s Great Lakes office in Harbor Springs, Mich. “They’re terrific-looking boats and have a great hull for our short and steep waves. I especially like being able to offer the 25-foot and 29-foot Harrier and Surfhunters because of their gasoline engine options. With Hunt in our lineup, we have a high-quality product available for those who prefer, or whose only option is, gas power.”

Nuttall, the West Coast sales director, started promoting Hinckley Yachts slightly more than a year ago on the West Coast, and has already seen delivery of five new Hinckley yachts in that region.

“The West Coast can really dish out some rough weather, and thanks to the renown and rugged construction of the Hunt deep-vee hulls, these boats are a good match,” Nuttall said. “We have also established a network of authorized service yards here on the West Coast, so boaters considering a Hunt can move ahead with confidence that the support is here.”

The two new Hunt regional sales locations will expand and support the builder’s existing sales network, which includes Hunt Yachts’ world headquarters in Portsmouth, R.I., a Chesapeake Bay sales and service office in Oxford, Md., and a Southeast sales and service office in Stuart, Fla.

Hunt Yachts also is represented by agents Prestige Yacht Sales in Connecticut and in Westchester County, N.Y., and Yachting Solutions in Maine.

“Following our acquisition by Scout Partners last fall, 2014 continues to be a year of exciting expansion for Hunt Yachts,” Hunt president Peter VanLancker said. “First we introduced our new Hunt Harrier 25 Sport and Hunt 80 Motoryacht, and now we are growing our sales network to keep up with customer demand.”
