The Hunter brand was registered by brothers in 1973 in Florida as a sailboat manufacturer. The first yachts instantly won the sympathy of the public.
In 1988, however, the shipyard barely managed to stay afloat: Warren, the heart of the company, was seriously into regattas.
«For me yachts are not just a hobby or business. This is life»," said Warren Lurs.
He set many world records on Thursday's Child and Hunter's Child sailboats. Meanwhile, sales plummeted and Lurs had to get back at the helm of the company. He extended the staff, extended the warranty from one year to five years and invited Canadian designer Rob Mazza.
In August 2012, Hunter was acquired by David E. Marlow, founder of Marlow Yachts.

For beginners and for small club or match racing, the compact sports dinghies and dealers are perfect, ranging in size from 15 to 22 pounds.
Sailboats of the brand are recognizable: stainless steel arches above the cockpit, winged keel, many skylights on deck. The shipyard has been working with architect Glenn Henderson for the last few years. The new models allow not only to comfortably travel long distances, but also to take part in regattas.
