"As you may have worked out from the vague silhouette we have been issued by Hunton, there isn?t a huge amount of information on offer about this new flagship" Jack Haines writes on Motorboat & Yachting's website.

Many people are eager to see the Hunton XRS52, especially with such little information available to the public.

Haines talks about how in the chief exec?s email about the boat to him, the limited details sound amazing. In short, it said: ?Twin or triple engines, petrol or diesel options, and a top speed of up to 60 knots at the top end.? After reading that many people will have their mouths watering at the thought of that.

The sketch doesn?t give much away but rumour has it that London-based superyacht designer Eidsgaard Design was responsible for the looks, Haines reports.

The hull will be pure Hunton but it is understood that this one will have a slightly wider beam than normal to include two proper cabins, both ensuite, as well as a galley and saloon area.

However, it?s the driving experience that has always set Huntons apart from other boats. The XRS52 promises the same effortless pace and high speed efficiency that should enable it to run comfortably at 40-50 knots.

It has been a while since the famous British Marque released a brand new boat, but they have definitely made up for that from what we can already see is going to potentially be a 2015 winner.
