- Hull and Deck
- Upon first visit, it is obvious the builder has provided an exceptionally clean and well-organized deck and impressive rig layout with full control of this beautiful yacht being easily accomplished by the skipper from the cockpit. At first notice is her flush mounted windlass, dual anchor bow rollers, and her Delta anchor with chain and nylon road all neatly stowed through and under the anchor locker lid to provide a safe and clean appearance of a proper yacht. Attention to adequate deck storage has been more than satisfied with huge cockpit and stern lockers. Structurally, her integral fiberglass grid stringers and transverse cross members have a skin of solid fiberglass below the waterline and cored fiberglass hull sides that are reinforced in collision areas with Kevlar. Her hull is white with elegant dove grey molded non-skid and a full rub rail with s/s insert to protect the hull sides. There are five opening deck hatches forward and four more aft; two milk glass ports and one hatch in the aft head for maximum ventilation; stainless steel mooring and amidship cleats and expansive glass areas provide ventilation and daylight to all areas below. The cockpit area is truly expansive with comfortable seating for 8 or more. Access below down through double outward opening doors w/slider hatch. Hunter s Mega-Locker to the cockpit s port side can easily and conveniently handle excess sail inventory, deck gear, life jackets, cleaning supplies, and perhaps another extra ton or two or excess stuff should you care to bring it along. Owner added canvas upgrades listed as (+) were added at delivery and have numerous convenience options for protection from the elements extending from the forward windscreen aft to the stern pulpit seats. Access to the water or to board a dinghy is very safe and exceptionally convenient through the stern pulpits. +Navy blue custom canvas package by North Sails +Dodger w/Strata glass +Connector (arch to dodger) +Bimini w/window +Shore power cord covers +Dodger window cover +Pedestal cover +Companionway bug screen +Sunbrella silver deck/salon portlite covers Sunbrella silver deck/salon portlite covers 6 6 headroom in cockpit +Lewmar steering pedestal w/40 s/s folding wheel Lewmar 48ST 2spd. sheet winches Lewmar 2 spd. rigging winches Lewmar 40STE stbd.
