Manufacturer Provided Description

The popularity of our Surfhunter 25 generated interest in a larger version, one with a bit more capacity and length, for longer open-water crossings and cosy overnighting. Surfhunter 29 is more generous in cockpit and accommodations, offering standing headroom below as well as an enclosed head with shower. With the longer length, this extra volume is still presented in an attractive low profile that draws admiration wherever this Surfhunter goes.
