“Huck Finn” is an extraordinary well-built custom Hunt inspired 71’ built by Ed Dettling, creator of the highly regarded Dettling 51. Huck Finn represents the next step in the evolution of a highly practical and well thought out coastal cruiser. She can be managed by an experienced couple or can support fully crewed operation by two crew with private crew access plus three comfortable guest staterooms for six guests. The crew stateroom can easy convert to a forth guest stateroom.
Her exterior has been thoughtfully conceived without brightwork to ease the maintenance factor without diminishing her classic lines and visual appeal. A walk-in rear engine room away from guest spaces and separate mid-ship pump room allow for quiet operation and convenient access to service and maintain the onboard systems. Extraordinary lighting and visibility throughout her interior and multiple areas for guests to enjoy including lower salon, pilot house, enclosed upper deck house and open aft deck each offer unique appeal for all weather cruising.
I am not familiar with a higher quality, better conceived or more elegant boat in this category. With a replacement cost in excess of 13 Million USD Huck Finn represents a rare opportunity in this market.
