Australian company U.S. Yachts, will display the amazing 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-centre; 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 Hunter 40 is poetry in motion. 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.
And as with all Marlow-Hunter yachts and sailboats, the H40 is manufactured and built in the United States, with each interior crafted by skilled craftsmen on-site and mated perfectly to each individual hull.
The Hunter 50 AC oozes glamour and class yet loses nothing in performance and sailability, making it the perfect yacht to pack up and go sailing for a week, a month, a year. As with all Hunter yachts, it can be sailed single handedly, thanks to the specially engineered sail plan.
Components on board the yacht include Hunter’s trademark mainsheet traveller arch, backstayless B & R rig, a dual-ended mainsheet that can be adjusted from the cockpit and companionway, and all sheets and halyards end at the cockpit. The Hunter 50 AC is an elegant, stylish and sleek yacht that is perfect for couples. It delights those who love the state of the art technology, sail power and ease of sailing, as well as those who prefer the glamour interior. The spacious salon has comfortable lounges with deluxe cushions, a glossy dinette table that can convert to a berth, an ottoman with wine bottle storage. The galley has a fridge, freezer, three burner stove, oven and microwave, and the master cabin has a queen-size bed with plenty of storage, shower and private head.
CEO of US Yachts, Matt Hayes, is excited to be showing the new Hunter 40 along with the Hunter 50 at Sanctuary Cove.
“The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is a great opportunity to showcase the prestigious Hunter models in all their glory. When visitors get onboard and gain a true feeling of the high quality of the installations and finishes, they really will want to look no further.” Mr Hayes said.
