In Summary

With the wide variety of features and specs, there are plenty of options for most sailors to choose from. Whether you're a boating or sailing enthusiast or want to live onboard with your partner or family, this boat can be a great option.

The newer 2014+ Hunter is a wonderful family cruiser. One thing to keep in mind is maintenance. With all boats and in particular with the Hunter, it's important to follow a regular maintenance schedule especially on older versions.

We're not talking every week but once a year is a sufficient amount of time to ensure everything is working as it should, in particular the sail drive which is a concern from these boat owners.
