Geoff Hunt, born in 1948, is a British marine artist. He produced cover art for the Harper-Collins and W.W. Norton editions of the Aubrey-Maturin series and later his two earlier naval novels, The Golden Ocean and The Unknown Shore. The first cover was produced for The Letter of Marque in 1987. However, Hunt then painted covers for the previous books and for each new book as it was published.

Each cover depicts a scene from the book concerned, but sometimes the image is of general sea life rather than a specific incident. For example, Master and Commander depicts a general picture of HMS Sophie in a harbour, probably Port Mahon, with a ship's boat rowing past, while Desolation Island shows HMS Leopard being followed by the Waakzaamheid, a crucial element of the story.
