Looking at Gratitude's bow from a forward position one sees a very generous flare which helps keep her dry while while lifting her bow in in choppy seas. Her underbody is designed to cruise at 20 knots with a top speed of 25 knots with her 500 HP Yanmar
An example of the Hunter Scott layout work in the Gratitude boat is interesting in several ways, evolutionary too. Her cockpit and salon are of the same approximate size and provide ample seating for six. This makes for a comfortable inside to outside seating arrangement. Additionally, the salon utilizes 2 nicely crafted teak helmseats which are comfortable, functional and blend in well with the surrounding teak furniture.
On the port side of the salon there is sufficient room in the companion seating area for large chart books, guide books and a log book to be logically placed to aid in navigation.
On the Starboard side is the boats driver's helm sea, the sliding door as well as most electrical component circuitry. The salon floor is of layered teak construction, the windows have quality teak trim on the inside of the framing. The window glass is tinted.

Dear Hunter Scott,
"...l am writing to tell you how pleased Debbie and l are with 'Gratitude,' our new 37' Duffy/ Hunter Scott custom cruising yacht. Although we have considerable sailing experience, we faced the process of building a custom power boat with considerable trepidation. The knowledge and expertise of you and your skilled employees made the process a very enjoyable one.
"We looked forward to each of our numerous trips to Cape Cod to see the progress of construction and to discuss the next round of design decisions and selections. Your extensive experience and comprehensive knowledge of all facets of custom boat construction, combined with your extraordinary patience, were indispensable in assisting us with the multitude of decisions involved in the process of building a custom boat.
"'Gratitude' is the boat of our dreams. She turns heads and elicits complements wherever we go. She is the prize of the Bamegat Bay. We can not thank you and your valued employees enough for making it possible. Please pass on our highest regards to your employees...."
Debbie and Steven Brick
"Gratitude" is based on an Atlantic 37 hull from the well-known design by Spencer Lincoln. She is powered by a single 500 hp diesel giving her a top speed of about 26 knots and carries approximately 300 gallons of fuel which makes her a very nice off-shore cruiser.
Asking $329,000 For more photos, visit our Yacht World Listing.
