Default Seahunter 56 is in the works

As a big fan of Seahunter, I am very glad to know that they have the 56 coming.

Powerful outboards changed the game!

@KVKV where did you find these pictures? I did not see it on Seahunter's website or notice it on IG.

In all seriousness I think it needs more than 4 outboards.

That looks like a boat that will carry quad 500s. If dollars were not a concern, a Seahunter 35 would be my ride. Can't wait to see this thing if it's in fact real. Must have some current 45T owners asking for bigger; otherwise this seems a pretty risky move in a very niche market.

Hope I didn't leak Seahunter's confidential information. I went to sea trial my new boat last week, and was talking about Yellowfin 52, that's when I got Seahunter 56 pictures from Them. They said that the 56 will be in next year's boat shows.

I want one! I wanted the Seahunter 45 before but now decide to wait for the 56, and quad Yamaha 500s or 600s for it.

I had some other boats before. Honestly the 35T I had last year made me a fan of Seahunter. I am building a 39T in this year.

Its 35T is insanely great, best I ever had for noreast water.

The 56 has two full size beds under the console. Here are the pictures if you like to see. If Yamaha does have the 500s or 600s in the next two years, that will change things.

A 25-30k# hull shouldn't need more than 1700hp to move well. I would guess 4/350's would move this more than fast enough for most customers. It would cruise high30's to low 40's
If you wanted more speed 7Marine 627's in a quad format will make it fly.
