Warren Luhrs founded Hunter Marine Corporation in 1972. The company’s first offering was the Hunter 25, designed by Bob Seidelmann, a sailmaker and accomplished racing sailor. This was followed by a series of cruisers designed by John E. Cherubini, of Cherubini Yachts fame. As the company grew, an in-house team became responsible for all sailboat designs, including the Legend 37, which was built from 1986 to 1988. Today, Hunter boats are known for their Bergstrom & Ridder rigs, traveler arches, Euro styling, and low cost. The 37 is a design that falls somewhere in between.
