Whether you are ready to set sail for the islands or just around the
buoys, the Hunter 36 can really make a difference. Starting with the
tall, fractional rig, which is a direct descendent of the B&R rig
that powered Hunter's Child to a second place finish in the recent
BOC, Hunter has engineered the mast to carry less weight aloft with
smaller sections. This is accomplished by utilizing swept-back
spreaders and reverse diagonals as well as mast support struts. This
combination provides superior strength without a backstay and
increases the stability at the same time. By using a large roach main
as the power sail, Hunter has eased the effort in sail handling and
allowed for real versatility for all wind and sea conditions. The deck
layout reflects the innovation that accompanies the rig. An integrated
arch protects the cockpit from snapping main sheets and blistering sun
with the optional bimini. This arch keeps the cockpit clear and open.
A custom console stands ready with the standard VHF and instruments.
Single lever control and fold down table along with engine
instrumentation complete the command station. The swim platform and
walkthrough transom complete with shower and folding ladder are
perfect for water sports or for boarding the tender. Storage is
everywhere you look and the non-skid is absolutely first-rate.
