The Hunter 356 / 36 is one of the most sought after and highly regarded

mid-size cruisers ever built.

Her  fast, capable hull, easily managed sail plan and comfortable, airy teak interior offer a superb balance of sailing performance and relaxing accommodations.  This lovely boat has seen light use and attentive maintenance.




The Hunter 356 features a tall fractional rig, which is a direct descendent of the B&R rig that powered Hunter's Child to a second place finish in the BOC. Hunter has engineered the mast to carry less weight aloft with smaller sections. This is accomplished by utilizing swept-back spreaders and reverse diagonals as well as mast support struts. This combination provides superior strength without a backstay and increases the stability at the same time. By using a large roach main as the power sail, Hunter has eased the effort in sail handling and allowed for real versatility for all wind and sea conditions. The benefit is better performance with less effort. The deck layout of the Hunter 356 reflects the innovation that accompanies the rig. An integrated arch protects the cockpit from snapping main sheets. This arch keeps the cockpit clear and open. A custom console stands ready with the instruments. Single-lever control and a fold-down table along with engine instrumentation complete the command station. The swim platform and walkthrough transom complete with shower and folding ladder are perfect for water sports or for boarding the tender. Storage is everywhere and the non-skid is absolutely first-rate. Comfort is truly important aboard whether for a week or a year, so Hunter has created an interior that not only looks good, but works as well. Two private, large staterooms, an enormous head with shower and a salon that can seat eight plus a gourmet galley will keep all the crew happy.
