The number one selling sailboat in the USA, Hunter offers models from 9' to 50'. This employee owned company is a part of the Luhrs Marine Group, which also includes Luhrs (sport fishing boats), Silverton (cabin cruisers and motor yachts), and Mainship (trawlers). Hunter is a well oiled machine, with no debt and an outstanding management team. Hunter builds a significantly better boat than they get credit for.
Standard yachts from Hunter with lead keels, which have no corrosion issues and are denser than iron, so provide a stiffer, faster boats for a given keel weight. Hulls of yachts from Hunter are Kevlar reinforced forward; two laminates in the 306 and four laminates from the 33 up. This improves impact strength should you collide with a submerged object. The interiors are varnished teak. Teak costs 40% more than cherry or other woods, but is the preferred wood for marine applications due to its beauty and resistance to moisture. Hunter employs a monocoque structural grid to reinforce their hulls and position the interior furniture.
Some builders use a pan and secure it with bonding putty. Hunter actually fiberglasses the entire grid to the hull so it becomes a permanent part of the structure and can't move. The interior is positioned on to the grid with a system of computer generated tabs and slots, which totally eliminates error and the need for trim pieces, because of the precision of the fit. The interior bulkheads are actually fiberglassed to the hull so they can't shift, a problem with pan built boats. On deck of yachts from Hunter, you'll notice several obvious Hunter differences. One is the B&R rig which is used on "Around Alone" single-handed racing boats. This rig is stronger and eliminates the need for a backstay to allow for a more efficient mainsail shape. It also employs only a small headsail with closer sheeting angles, providing better upwind performance.
Another obvious difference is the arch over the yachts from Hunter cockpit, which supports the traveler at the end of the boom, where it belongs, along with housing stereo speakers, cockpit lights and bimini tops.
All new model identification is not just skin deep, they include numerous upgrades such as the lacquered sprayed teak interior and furniture, genuine Corian countertops, new windows and ports plus many, many more. All-new model identification brings a stunning new level of luxury, strength and durability that underscore Hunter's leadership in the North American sailboat industry.
