Newest HeadHunter Boat

Thought I'd post a few pic's of my latest creation. Bought the hull last June and Ricky and I have been doing a complete rebuild on her ever since.

She's a 44' Hurricane, based on the Tempest 44' Hull from the 80's and 90's. Kevlar lay-up, vinylester resin, Nida-Core Wheelhouse, decks etc. Dry hull weight of 7400 Lbs, ( yes I weighed it). Lightweight and strong. 25 degree deadrise, 9'4" beam.

Sleeps 6, 54 Tanks, 450 fuel.

Still got a month left on the punch list. Should have her diving by spring.

Powered her with twin 2014 Generation 3 Yammi V-8's. Gen 3's are about 40 Lbs lighter and 14% better on mid range fuel than the Gen 1 and 2's.

Ran her a little the other day and the results were amazing.

Here's a few pic's....can't wait to spear something big off of her!

Even a 44 footer doesn't make those V-8's look small......

Re: Newest HeadHunter Boat

Will post some more pic's with more specs as they become available. Will probably post some pics in the future with a fish or two in the foreground.

Re: Newest HeadHunter Boat

Dan, great looking rig. How about the fish boxes? We all know they have to be big to fit all those "big" fish. You guys have a name for her? Looking forward to the fish pics from your first trip. Have fun-Jose.

Re: Newest HeadHunter Boat

Jose, 4500 Easy. Thanks for compliments. Lot of thought went into her. Most likely will name her HeadHunter or HeadHunter 44.

Impressive, very impressive. You guys have skills that I envy. I'd love to know your thoughts on what you changed from the contender. Also, what electronics will be going in this one?
