Welcome to Martin Payne Marine

Martin Payne Marine image My dream was to own a Hunton Powerboat. For years I had followed Jeff Huntonís designs and racing successes.
I had owned a variety of ski boats from 12 to 18 feet but owning a Hunton Powerboat was my big ambition.
The first time I met Jeff Hunton was at the 1985 Southampton Boat Show where Hunton Powerboats were exhibiting their RS28 with a pair of 260hp V8 Mercruisers. I stood a few paces back from the boat drawling and hoping one day I could own such a beautiful and fast powerboat.

"Come on board" Jeff Hunton said,
"No No" I said "thank you but this is out of my league and I donít want to waste your time"
"This is why we are here" Jeff said, "come and take a look"

Well my conscience was clear; he knew I wasnít in the market, just a dreamer, so I jumped onboard.
It was love at first sight, (the boat not Mr Hunton) everything and more I had imagined her to be.
I think Jeff Hunton enjoyed my enthusiasm because before I new it he offered to take me for a blast, yes there and then!!!!!
What can I say, heading towards the Southampton Dock wall at 60mph then taking a full lock turn at the last minute meant one thing, one day I had to own one of these awesome machines.
The rest as they say is now history, in 1987 I managed to buy myself an ex race Hunton 28 called ABBI and my Hunton journey began.
By 2003 I had owned the Hunton RS28, Hunton Maverick 34, and two Hunton RS43ís travelling thousands of nautical miles. During this time I got to know the Hunton Powerboat Team very well.
In 2004 I grabbed an amazing opportunity and started Hunton Powerboat Sales which was responsible for selling Hunton Powerboats direct from the factory worldwide.
During this time we introduced the Hunton XRS37, Two new RIB models and the exciting XRS43 as well as been chosen to build three boats for the film "Sahara".
I now run this independent brokerage website as well as being connected to the factory sharing my knowledge and passion to a new generation of aspiring Hunton Powerboat Owners.

43' Hunton Powerboats XRS43
2009 £187,000

This boat is in as new condition with very low hours.  It is the first twin Volvo D6 370 hp DPR performance drive Hunton Powerboats XRS 43 to enter the pre owned Hunton marketplace. 

She was built in 2009 with a very comprehensive specification, including bow thruster, radar, generator, stainless steel through hull anchor, composite teak package and heating.
The XRS43 has the new Jeff Hunton stepped hull. When I did the pre delivery propellor check and sea trial I achieved 49.7 knots as a two way average with the engines brand new and still tight, loaded with fuel and antifouled which was amazing. This is a genuine 50 knot boat with the amazing fuel economy.
The colour scheme is classic Dark Navy Blue over white with a silver grey waterline stripe. The interior has Parchment leather and Alcantara finishes with contrasting Walnut veneers and Black Perspex. The cockpit seating is covered in silver grey softdura vinyl. 
On the deck she has the Stainless Steel Mast and high screen option which diverts the wind off the driver and passengers. She is also fitted with an extended bow rail as used on the RS43 rather than the standard low level rail as well as snap davits on the swim platform.
New survey, just professionally valeted, serviced and ready to go.
