Cruising World's "boat of the year" at its introduction - and for good reason: Simple to sail yet great performance; large cockpit absent clutter due to Hunter's trademark mainsheet arch, a bright open-feeling salon below (including innovative wrap-around seating to accomodate a party!), gourmet galley, conveniently-located at-companionway head, and TWO staterooms. This one abounds with custom additions for cruising convenience: a huge complete cockpit enclosure with multiple exterior grab-rails, a "back-porch" extending over the swim-platform, additional custom storage-solutions thru-out. Fast under power! A thouroughly-outfitted NorthWest cruiser, ready for your next vacation adventure.
Set up for NorthWest cruising, this Hunter's cockpit enclosure extends right out to the gunwale aft of the arch, but with big opening panels angled inward to go forward along the side-decks -- firmly anchored to Hunter's cockpit/mainsheet arch, this "extra room" provides the maximum possible sheltered space, yet has great visibility out thru all the isinglass. Plenty of cockpit seating -- there's two double-wide seats up high and well-aft (integrated into the pushpit) plus the more typical bench-seating around the pedestal. Helmseat is elevated more than Hunter-standard, especially to see over the instrument-pods on-pedestal -- an easily-removed structure of StarBoard raises the extra-tall contoured BottomSider cushion high over the pass-thru to the transom. The Edson pedestal sports a folding-rim Lewmar wheel, so it's easy when dining outside to pass aft alongside the helm.
Passing over the safety of a seat-high bridgedeck, down the companionway stairs (note custom washboard storage rack at first step) brings you directly into the galley area; the door to the two-compartment head is directly to port, also at the base of these stairs. Vanity-sink compartment is partitioned from the adjacent shower/toilet compartment by a hiding pull-out rollup vinyl door - then aft thru a solid door into the master stateroom. Athwartship true queen berth still leaves space for a storage locker at the foot of the bed, and a headboard with yet more shelving at the opposite end. Custom basketry-bins in stacking shelves take the place of Hunter's standard dressing seats, and there's two tall hanging lockers with a shelf atop, adjacent to each door out. Passing thru the starboard-side door, we've made a full circle around the engine-compartment and the stairs - now in the L-shaped galley.
Corian countertops either side of the Force-10 sealed-top stove with oven have one top-entry at the bend of the "L", where a deep garbage bin hides. The leg extending more than halfway across the salon includes a highly-polished deep double-bin SSTL sink, and a good-sized under-counter front-opening fridge... complemented by a separate (only slightly smaller) front-opening freezer just aft of the stove. Hullside cabinets above the counter include one section with paned-glass doors, that is a fan-forced drying cabinet, fitted to hold the included Hunter dish-set. Another custom touch is the over-sink glass-rack, with each (safe plastic) drink glass held in-place on its own peg.
Forward of the galley is a large dinette area, with U-shaped seating. Across the salon walkway is a straight settee, but with this model's unique removable cushion spanning across the doorway to the forepeak, it's easy and quick to create one very long contiguous circle of seating all around the expanding table! The compression-post is so tight against the forepeak bulkhead, that it's not in the way of this circle of seating.
Just aft of that portside settee but ahead of the head-compartment, the Nav-table has a dedicated seat facing forward, but a second opinion on that chart spread on the table can be voiced when seated facing aft on the aft end of the settee!
Guests have their own private stateroom in the forepeak, with traditional V-berth, and hanging locker.
Entire interior is remarkably bright from the extensive opening hatches and sealed deadlights overhead, and the row of cabin-trunk portlights at standing height. Current owners selected THIS model specifically for the abundance of natural light!
