Lenny Rudow reviewed this 44 footer from Hunt Yachts for our sister site boats.com, and he really liked what he saw, inside and out.

I love a boat with tons of elbow room that doesn’t make me feel like a sardine packed into a can. And if you want that kind of room both inside and out on your boat, Hunt’s 44 Express Cruiser is definitely one you’ll want to check out.

To create that open atmosphere, Hunt stuck with a time-tested design: the flush deck. It’s the same level from the transom clear on up to the galley down.

Even down in the cabins, Hunt maintains that open feeling. Come on, check it out.

By using a two stateroom layout, each stateroom can be significantly larger than if you added a third. Now you do lose privacy for a third couple, but I say that tradeoff is well worth it.

Where you really see the advantage is here in the second stateroom. Now on most boats, this would be a very cramped cabin. But here we have got a TON of space.

And just look at all the room in the head! I mean, this thing looks like it belongs on a 50 footer. I can even shower comfortably in here.
