Hunton Powerboats adds American distributor

British boatbuilder Hunton Powerboats is the latest European brand to begin selling to American customers.

The company says the Hunton XRS37 is the first in what it hopes will be a long line of powerboats to find homes in the United States.

The Hunton range is being distributed by Total Marine, which is based in Norwalk, Conn.

The XRS37 is charcoal gray and has a top speed of more than 50 knots, a range of 250 nautical miles and a handcrafted interior.

“We’ve had a fantastic year, both at home in the U.K. and in the South of France, but to cap the year off with our official partnership with Total Marine is the icing on the cake,” Hunton managing director Fiona Pool said in a statement. “We have seen the success of great British brands such as Aston Martin and Range Rover in the U.S. and we’re thrilled to think that we’re taking our first steps along the same line. The XRS37 is the ideal first boat to bring. A true performance boat, it perfectly reflects the fantastic design and bespoke features that make Hunton such a legendary brand in the U.K. and Europe.”

The XRS37 is being launched to the press from noon to 2 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, Conn. A VIP customer cocktail reception will be held from 4.30 to 7:30 p.m.
