Step aboard the Hunter 31 and meet the boat that unites unlimited sailing aspirations with a limited budget .   The Hunter 31 is a "spunky daysailor / weekender with all the comforts of home in a compact and affordable package".

"Gute Fahrt II"  will make that "SAFE JOURNEY" in ease and comfort .   She carries an IN Mast furling main and a 105% jib , and is powered by a Yanmar 21 hp.   Raymarine will be at your side with Knot-Depth-Windspeed and Autopilot. 

 The modern hull shape is easily driven for light air performance and a high ballast ratio and low aspect sail-plan keep the 31 on her feet in heavier air. In-mast furling, an traveler overhead on the arch, sheet winches back by the helm, a fractional rig and a roller furling jib make this boat easy for one person to sail without having to leave the helm.
