A Premier Location

Come walk our large docks on Granville Island -- the centre of recreational boating in Western Canada -- to see the latest and most popular Hunter models and high quality pre-owned sail and power boats. We believe the only way to share the boating experience is to stock the inventory that may be best suited to your needs.

We also believe that our location offers the premier setting and amenities to showcase our listings. We have unobstructed views and waterways that make it convenient and attractive for passersby and those arriving from other parts of the city, the province, Canada and Washington State.

The fast-paced lifestyle of today leaves few sanctuaries of solitude.

Whether you are a day sailor or serious cruiser, the new Hunter 40 is designed to please. Her superior sailing characteristics are honed from her 65 predecessors to emerge from our design center. Built in the United States, she is crafted by people who understand and respect the sea. We chose to launch the new H40 on our fortieth anniversary with the desire to create a sailing vessel that exceeded the expectations of the past forty years. Come experience the new H40 with her dual helm control, fold-down transom, chined hull and dual heads. Our hand-crafted interiors are made to fit each boat, not the other way around. The result is an interior fit and finish that is as functional as it is beautiful. 

They say life begins at 40. Begin your sailing life with a Hunter 40.
