Australian company U.S. Yachts, will display the new Hunter 40 and the Queen of the fleet the Hunter 50 at the 2013 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. The Hunter 40 will be making her Australian debut.
The H40 is designed specifically for extended cruising and live-aboard comfort, as are all the models in Marlow-Hunter’s “World Destination Series” of yachts – including the H45, H50 and H50cc.
The H40 offers a choice of two- or three-cabin interior configurations, both with a generous headroom; forward facing nav-center; spacious galley featuring Corian countertops, double burner LPG gas stove with oven, and even a six-place setting of dishes, bowls and mugs and interior finishes in either cherry or teak.
Topside, the generous cockpit is the social hub of the yacht with Marlow-Hunter’s TravelArch rigging allowing freedom of movement and safety both underway and at anchorage. Large storage compartments for line and gear also serve – beautifully - as seating. The large pop-up table makes the cockpit a perfect entertaining and dining venue. The dual helm stations provide ease of handling, while stainless steel stern rail seating provides a relaxing seating area for company underway.
Forward of the cockpit the H40 is all business with organized deck and rigging layouts structured for single-hand sailing with the optional self-furling sail system. Alternatively, performance oriented sailors may choose a standard sail configuration. Both sail plans can be easily and safely handled with the canted handrails and lines and a non-skid surface for maximum safety and mobility. Aesthetics and functionality are also of note. Forward of the cockpit is a sleek low profile cabin. The continuous windows running down both port and starboard sides allow abundant light to enter.
