Broker’s Comment: A couple from Rochester, NY owned the vessel and it had very light use on Lake Ontario (Only 63 on the engine). They traded her on a new powerboat and her current owner moved the 38 to Erie, PA…Lake Erie’s fresh water. I actually assisted on the final leg from Buffalo to Erie. The day started with a thunderstorm and 20 knots winds on the nose. It didn’t get any better on the way to Erie.
I was very familiar with the Hunter 38 having had the pleasure 2 seasons before to have one as my demo. My companion and I enjoyed the boat very much. Stable, roomy, deceptively fast, comfortable in all conditions. The In-mast furling main made it easy to sail and though we mostly day-sailed the trips we took across the lake were comfortable and fast.
This 38 did not disappoint her new owner and soon he realized she could take the harsh treatment Lake Erie dished out that day. I could see his confidence in her grow. Family changes have forced him to put her up for sale. She has been professionally maintained and has had light use again.
Hunter Marine's 38 is an evolutionary boat that comes from the finest of innovation and consumer input Hunter has ever had. Comfort, convenience and livability are what the 38 is all about. Abundant natural light streams in from the Hunter signature windshield as well as the many fixed and screened ports; not to mention the multiple overhead hatches, which also admit a tremendous amount of fresh air. At anchor or at the dock, the placement of the ports assures you of great ventilation, and obviously, reverse cycle air and heat are an optional choice for your cruising comfort.
Entertaining or handling the family is easy with the enlarged salon complete with a convertible dinette and facing settee. Storage is plentiful as is electronic space at the integrated nav-station. A Corian® covered, full-service galley comes complete right down to the dishware and any chef will adore the side-by-side ice boxes and top-loading trash bin set each side of the double basin, stainless sink.
The private forward stateroom includes an ensuite vanity with sink and storage as well as plenty of hanging locker space and drawer storage. Aft, you'll find the master stateroom with a huge queen berth and more storage. Privacy is enhanced by the dual access head that offers a Corian® covered vanity and shower stall all wrapped in a complete fiberglass shell for easy cleaning and maintenance. A tri-cabin version is also available for those who want to accommodate even more family or friends. On deck, the cockpit is designed for the comfort of the skipper and crew, not for the ease of the builder. By bringing the coaming out to the gunnels, Hunter has increased the overall space to incredible proportions to include seating for eight. A custom console with folding table leaves is perfect for those alfresco meals. Take the time to compare the innovations, comfort, performance and with the competition and then compare the value. We know you'll be impressed.
