Hunters Coaches has added a further new vehicle to its fleet in the form of a Yutong GT13. It has been supplied by Pelican Bus and Coach and carries the livery of National Holidays. The coach will be used across the UK on behalf of the break provider, serving pick-up points from the Leeds catchment area.
The GT13 is the first Yutong for Hunters and its delivery represents an extension of the collaboration between the operator and National Holidays. The two parties started working together in 2021 after JG Travel Group purchased the National Holidays brand assets and database the previous year.
National Holidays Product and Operations Director Paul Mason says that its work with Hunters is going “from strength to strength,” adding that “we are delighted that Hunters has seen the potential and worked in partnership with us to brand an additional coach.”
Pelican Area Sales Manager Amelia Crump handed over the GT13 to Hunters Coaches Managing Director Raj Digwa. It has 53 seats trimmed in burnt orange half-leather, and comes with a Bosch entertainment system, mood lighting, USB charging points at each seat and 240v sockets.
Mechanical specification is identical to its GT12 sibling, with power from the DAF MX-11 engine rated at 450bhp driving through a ZF EcoLife automatic gearbox.
