Hunt 72When designing their new sport motor yacht, the Hunt 72, Hunt Yachts wanted to combine legendary performance with functional luxury and incredible craftsmanship. When it came time to choose a generator they knew they could rely on the performance, ease of maintenance and rugged reliability of Northern Lights marine generators.

Recently awarded “Best New Powerboat of 2017” at the 2016 Newport International Boat Show, the Hunt 72 won top honors from industry experts for innovation, consumer value and aesthetics.

The panel of judges released this statement about the Hunt 72:

It is impressive to see a boat this size that can be operated by the owner. This boat has over 80,000 man hours in its build and every hour was well spent. There is not one detail that hasn’t been addressed. Fit and finish are immaculate. The builder and owner were able to work together to build a spectacular boat. Not trying to sound cliché, but this is a timeless design.”


The Hunt 72’s pair of M864W3 25KW generators exemplify many of these same attributes. The attention to detail and innovation that impressed the judges is apparent in the design and performance of every Northern Lights marine generator.

At Northern Lights, user friendly operation and ease of use is a key focus when designing our generators. All service points are located on one side of the gen set making maintenance tasks easy to perform. The unique Northern Lights DC logic system allows owners to easily troubleshoot and repair the DC power system, while a 30 amp AC circuit breaker in the junction box provides added protection to sensitive electronics.

By providing generators engineered for simplicity and reliability, Northern Lights is proud to have contributed to the success of this project.
