Hunter Service – Top Ten Dealer
Hunter Marine has removed the boundaries to bring you the best sailboats in the world. We have been working around the clock to make this years presentation one you will never forget. All new model identification is not just skin deep, but includes numerous upgrades such as the lacquered sprayed teak interior and furniture, genuine Corian countertops, new windows and ports plus many, many more. If you haven’t looked at a Hunter lately, you could be missing out on something big!
Finely Finished Teak Furniture and Bulkheads
The new Hunter line features a varnished finish on beautifully detailed teak interiors. You will see curved radiuses, matched grains and a new higher level of fit and finish that is usually found only on custom boats.
Hardware and Fixtures All interior hardware has undergone extensive testing and evaluation for strength, compatibility and longevity. All cabinetry and door hardware has been upgraded. You’ll feel the difference!
Upgraded Exterior Hardware
All exterior hardware has been upgraded to include the biggest and best names in the business. you’ll find names you can trust such as Lewmar®, Spinlock®, Harken®, ProFurl®, Whitlock® and Schaffer® aboard the new Hunter line.
Genuine Corian® Countertops
Genuine Corian® countertops are utilized throughout the entire Hunter keelboat line. This durable, yet beautiful material will hold its serviceability and luster for years to come.
Heavy Duty Rubrails
A new high-density vinyl rubrail is now being wrapped 360 degrees around the boats for added protection. A standard stainless steel insert also enhances the protection as well as the beauty.
Hunter Kevlar® Technology
Hunter adds the extra strength, but not the weight where you need it most. From the stem to the keel sump, Hunter has added a Kevlar® laminate to give you added protection against collisions. This is the most likely area for damage or penetration and Hunter provides an extra level of security.
Stainless Steel Arches
When Hunter first introduced the arch a few years ago, the skeptics were all against it. Today, many of those are now offering arches of their own. There is no question – the arch is a real asset. By placing the traveler up top, it keeps the cockpit clear and safe. As an attachment point for a bimini, it makes a clean installation. The arch is also perfect for stereo speakers and cockpit lights.
Again, another Hunter innovation that has now been time-proven to be one of the strongest and easiest to sail rigs ever designed. By incorporating sweptback spreaders and a pre-bend in the mast, the need for a backstay has been eliminated. This allows for a fuller roach main that provides more power in an easy to tame mainsail. With the big main, the jib can be smaller and easier to handle as well. Power without perspiration!
Antimonious Lead Keels
At Hunter Marine only real hardened lead keels are attached with stainless steel keelbolts. This is obviously more expensive than iron keels and mild steel bolts, but when it comes to performance, safety and maintenance, it’s the only way to go.
Through-Bolted Hull to Deck Joints
Superb strength and integrity are achieved with a through-bolted hull to deck joint. The outward turned flanges of the deck and hull are first shaped for an exact fit. Then, 3M® 5200 sealant is evenly spread onto the joint prior to the lowering of the deck. The joint is then clamped together and through-bolted around the entire deck. An extra shot of epoxy is also laid down at the chainplates. Now, that’s strength!
Extensive Dealer Network
No matter where in the world you decide to purchase and cruise your Hunter sailboat, our extensive dealer network is trained to be responsive to your needs. An exclusive dealer intranet is in place to keep us in constant communication with them. Whether you need a small part sent or a large question answered, we are always online. As we continue to expand both our product line and distribution channels, you can be sure we will be there for you.
Modular Interior Construction
By building the interior outside the boat, Hunter can reduce labor costs and increase quality because of excellent accessibility. The interior is then bonded into the hull to make a true unibody structure.
MaxGuard® and Microban® Gelcoats
Hunter decks are built with MaxGuard® gelcoat. This eliminates any yellowing and reduces crazing and fading. Heads and showers are laminated with Microban®, a special antibacterial gelcoat to protect you and your family. They cost us a bit more, but it’s worth it!
Upscale Entertainment Systems
Hunter now offers flat screen TVs and Bose® audio systems. Some competitors believe “roughing it is all right”, but at Hunter we believe your comfort is more important. Enjoy the best in video and audio — you deserve it!
