Heard from several sources that the 43 and 37 moulds were destroyed.

But the Rib moulds are with Rib X under a 3 year deal

What a shame. Such stunning boats. Suppose it stops them getting into the wrong hands

I thought Hunton is still in business?
Why would someone chop up the moulds?

They still have a web site, but I checked out the factory last week. It's definitely empty. Emailed the liquidator and they said all assets were sold

Look at how many boats they sold while she was at the helm ........

Sounds like they only rescued one mould. How long did she run hunton for? Did Jeff sell up?

Jeff left a few years ago as far as I know .

Fiona seems to be the only employee of Hunton Yachts.
Where they will build the 55 or if ever build it who knows
