New Hunter Yachts e36 to debut in Australia in January 2011

Australian company, U.S. Yachts, will introduce the new Hunter e36 to the Australian market in January.

The H-e36 boasts the new sleek design found on the Hunter 39 and Hunter 50, with a hull design that is even further advanced. This change is part of Hunter’s evolution of hull design that couples stern reflex with a bow hollow creating an effect that mimics a longer overall hydrodynamic waterline, therefore increasing the hull speed.

The deck features a more modern profile with large side windows ensuring more interior light while the cockpit has been lengthened and bolstered by a fold down swim platform. The e36 still retains it’s telescopic stainless steel ladder, allow swimmers to reboard easily after some aquatic fun and games.

The longer cockpit allows for a larger and more airy master aft cabin with even more headroom. Overall the interior has been enhanced with a richer look and feel. The hardwood flooring and Corian countertops add elegance, and no matter which of the two salon designs you choose – the traditional U-shape or a more conventional layout which allows up to five guests to face one another – you will be more than comfortable in your home on the sea.

The new e36 is also available in a performance-enhanced version, that will feature a deep draft lead keel, upgraded winches, spinnaker gear including a retractable bow sprit, a larger wheel, folding propeller, fat-top mainsail for increased mainsail power and taking out the swim platform will save on weight and allow for a more open cockpit.
