Every once in awhile, an exceptional boat comes on the market that is heads and shoulder above the competition.
Sweet Melissa is such a boat.
 Dozens of this popular aft cockpit Hunter 49 and 50 have been built, but none match the upgrades, enhancements and success of Sweet Melissa

Although the owner primarily sails this boat with family and friends, she is also extremely fast. Twice in the past two years, Sweet Melissa was honored as the fastest boat in the highly competitive St Petersburg to Isla Mujares, Mexico race.

The knowledgeable owner is an industrial design engineer, an experienced sailor and previous Hunter owner.  He lavishly prepared this Hunter 49 to be the ultimate in performance, comfort and convenience.  Numerous ingenious enhancements were made to the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems to improve the livability, reliability, durability and performance.

The Hunter 49 was awarded "Boat of the Year" Honors from Cruising World Magazine for her luxurious accommodations, great looks and advanced design.

If you are seeking a comfortable, easy to handle, easy to maintain and dependable boat that will be exhilarating to sail, I invite you to seriously consider this Hunter 49.
