Manufacturer Provided Description

A luxurious passagemaker with a versatile floor plan for total extended offshore cruising, the Hunter 49 offers a complete range of live aboard accommodations and outstanding entertainment features.

With an overall length of 49 feet 11 inches, plus a 14' 5" beam and 6' 9" of salon headroom, the Hunter 49 is a BIG boat with impressive interior volume.

Driving the Hunter 49's new hull is a specially engineered sail plan that achieves maximum efficiency while maintaining the Hunter trademark of single-handed sail-ability, which is a great feature for a boat of this size.

Components aboard the Hunter 49 include Hunter's famous mainsheet traveler arch, backstayless B & R rig, a battened full-roach main sail, and two headsail options: single self-tacking jib or self-tacking staysail with overlapping jib.

A dual-ended mainsheet allows adjustments from both the cockpit and companionway, and all sheets and halyards end at the cockpit.
