Text of Cruising World Review:

Preprinted from CRUISING WORLD magazine:
Hunter 49: Solid at Sea and Devilish in the Details This sturdy performer was named Best Full-Size
cruiser by CWs Boat of the Year judges. Dec. 17, 2007 By Mark Pillsbury
When the BOTY judges sat down to trade notes on this years crop of Full-Size Cruisers, the Hunter
49 outpaced its rivals with its sail plan and rig options, safety features, solid feel under sail,
accommodations, and price. In their discussion, the judges pointed to a number of details that made
this a boat that could be enjoyed in port and, with some minor tweaks, take an owner and family a
ways offshore.
Starting at the bow, BOTY judge and former sailmaker Tom Linskey was struck by the ability to have
a self-tending jib, an overlapping genoa, or a combination of both with the addition of a solent stay. At
the aft end, all of the judges were impressed by the split mainsheet that could be controlled either by
a winch on the cabin top or with a tail that runs down the trademark Hunter overhead arch to a winch
by the port helm station.
The 49s cockpit is comfortable, with twin wheels and a solid table. Ahead of that, judge Steve
Callahan noted that the companionway stairs were some of the best in the show. On deck, handrails
run forward, past the mast, and 28-inch-high lifelines give a sense of security when youre moving
about while under way. Below, an ingenious hanging area for wet foulies under the companionway
caught the eye of judge Stacey Collins, as did ample storage under the saloon sole and the
well-marked and easy-to-access through-hulls.
Below the waterline, designer Glenn Henderson and his team relied on a relatively small keel and
large rudder to produce a boat that tracks well and has power when moving through the water.
Moreover, the judges concluded that the boats systems and construction are well thought out and
thorough, making the boat, at just under $400,000, a value for the buyer.
I was just so impressed with the sailhandling and the rig options. The general quality of the build is a
cut above. Tom Linskey
