The popularity of the Surfhunter 25 generated interest in a larger version, one with a bit more capacity and length, for longer open-water crossings and cozy overnighting. The Surfhunter 29 is more generous in cockpit and accommodations, offering standing headroom belowdecks, as well as a large enclosed head with shower.

LUCKY DUCTS is a very special Surfhunter 29Jet that has always received the best of care since day one. She is one of the sought-after Surfhunter 29’s with waterjet propulsion powered by a Yanmar 440hp diesel engine combined with an UltraJet 305 Waterjet and Bowthruster via a reliable and intuitive joystick control.

Economical, powerful and reliable Yanmar 440hp diesel inboard engine and Joystick system with bow thruster - a truly excellent combination for docking, shallow water operation and running at speed. No need to worry about lobster pots!

This Surfhunter 29 Jet is a best-in-class offering, with handling and performance that has to be experienced to fully appreciate. Please contact Wellington Yacht Partners for a complete history from inception, through her build and original ownership right up to the present.

The current owner has had a number of boats with waterjet propulsion including a Little Harbor WhisperJet and Hinckley and considers this Hunt as the best-running of them all - one of her best attributes being the ability to be operated on a plane at slow speeds - as little as 14-15 knots - while also being able to cover real ground at fast cruise in the mid 20 knot range.

LUCKY DUCTS is available just in time for summer! She is a terrific jetboat, perfect for runs to the beach, the Islands and beyond.
