Hunter

Another intrepid North American builder is Hunter Marine with a 40-year heritage of building boats in Florida. Recently purchased and renamed Marlow-Hunter Sailboats, this company sells coastal cruisers and trailer-sailers from 15 to 50 feet. Always with an eye toward comfort, Hunter has often led more traditional builders in the addition of creature comforts and practical solutions like onboard WiFi, a dish drying system, a cockpit arch, and a simple sail plan including the trademark B&R rig which is easily managed by a couple or a single-hander. The recent addition of sleeker profiles and drop-down transoms that form a swim platform, have kept Hunter top-of-mind with boaters looking to have the latest features at a head-turning value.

Boat Description

The Hunter 18 is designed to serve a wide spectrum of sailors, from novices to salty veterans. Constructed of rugged, durable fiberglass, the Hunter 18 opens up endless possibilities on the waters around you. The kids will learn to sail safely in the Hunter 18 with its generous freeboard and ease of handling. With a max capacity of four, families can take daytrips in safety and comfort. Veteran sailors will appreciate the efficient hull design – below the waterline, a bow hollow and hard chine make for a slippery hull that delivers stability and performance even on light air days.

Several key features make the Hunter 18 an ideal daysailer. A seven foot beam guarantees stability and provides a clean and clutter-free cockpit. With its large main and small jib, the rig can be sailed by beginners, and this setup also provides fun for the seasoned sailor. The kick-up centerboard and swing-up rudder make landing and beaching a breeze, and the canvas cuddy unsnaps for easy bow access.

The Hunter 18 is easy to trailer, rig and launch, and it will carry the entire crew. An optional spinnaker package will add even more performance.
