Quick Look: Hunter 39

Alvah Simon reviews this fresh design for the 2010 Cruising World Sailboat Show in our January 2010 issue

December 23, 2009

The Hunter 39 provides a fresh look with its redesigned topside. And with its length-to-beam ratio of 3:1 and ample headroom throughout, the interior layout is designed to provide all the comforts of home as well.
Standout features above deck are twin helms that provide unbeatable visibility; convenient open-cockpit entry aft; and Hunter’s signature B&R rig, with its overhead traveler arch. This configuration, combined with “wraparound” placement of winches and sail controls, creates a safe and workable helm station.

The interior offers an athwartship owner’s cabin aft, a V-berth cabin forward, an L-shaped galley, spacious dining and lounging areas, and a standard flat-screen television. The boat will be at home in coastal or near offshore waters as a comfortable and stylish family cruiser and is big enough to set out on even longer voyages.
