The Hunter40 5 was conceived as a comfortable cruising boat and as in all Legend Series boats a tough competitor as well. Warren Luhrs and the rest of the Hunter Design Team have taken special care to blend comfort, performance, and short handed sailing capabilities, all in one package. Her powerful rig, swept back spreaders, and large mainsail enhance her performance, while the bulb wing keel keeps her stable and shallow in draft. (4'11")
Special touches like a small furling headsail, single line reefing and sail flaking, make cruising the 40.5 so enjoyable. A wide open cockpit complete with table keep you comfortable in a seaway or on the hook.
Down below, you'll witness an incredible salon finished in rich fabrics, hand rubbed teak and Corian counters. The L-shaped galley is truly workable including a dual opening refrigerator and freezer, stove with oven, and even a dishrack complete with dishes. Accommodations are sumptuous and can handle a crew of six.
Storage and ventilation are two features that most sailboats just can't have enough of. The Hunter 40.5 boasts seventeen opening ports and enough dry storage to comfortably live aboard. The boat also has folding wheel, special elevated helm seat, dinghy davits and two solar panels. Marina on Hendricks Isle features a pool, out door grill, washer/dryer, bathroom and shower.
From the innovative walk through transom to the stainless anchor roller, no one provides a better equipped or a more value oriented comfortable cruiser than the Hunter 40.5.
