Fun to sail, easy to trailer, and a snap to set up, the Hunter 240 will provide real enjoyment with little effort. The integral water ballast system provides great stability under sail, but also allows for easy trailering with smaller vehicles when emptied. An innovative mast raising system makes rigging and launching an easy exercise. The standard custom trailer will have sailors in and out of the launch ramp in minutes. A large cockpit, plenty of storage, and all lines led aft makes sailing simple. Two double berths - plus a workable galley and portable head - make weekending comfortable. Hunter Marine's water-ballasted trailerables are comfortable cruisers that are easy to tow because the stability is left in the water, not on the trailer. Whether trailer sailing across the country or just across town, Hunter makes the experience truly easy with a rig that is safe, simple, and fast to set up and take down. Hunter Marine Hunter Marine Corporation was founded in 1973 to build truly affordable sailboats. Warren Luhrs, Hunter's chairman, has personally logged thousands of ocean miles both single-handedly and shorthanded aboard his ocean racers. From these floating laboratories hundreds of new ideas have been born. The same B & R rig that powered his boats into the record books also power the Hunter fleet. A lot has changed over the years, but Hunter Marine continues its commitment of bringing the sailing public the best performing and most accommodating sailboats at a reasonable price.
