“The XRS37 is the ideal first boat to bring. A true performance boat, it perfectly reflects the fantastic design and bespoke features that make Hunton such a legendary brand in the UK and Europe,” said Fiona Pool, managing director of Hunton. “We’ve had a fantastic year both at home in the UK and in the South of France, but to cap the year off with our official partnership with Total Marine is the icing on the cake. We have seen the success of great British brands, such as Aston Martin and Range Rover in the U.S., and we’re thrilled to think that we’re taking our first steps along the same line.”

The XRS37 was introduced to the media officially today at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, Connecticut.
