Why bother sailing a boat to paradise when there is one ready and waiting for you in Fiji!
Sail away in this beautiful 2004 Hunter 41'!
This new cruiser sports the signature B & R rig for ease of sailing and a new slippery hull from Glenn Henderson, Hunter's head designer. The Hunter 41 incorporates many of the hull design innovations from Hunter's larger boats in a more compact size. A Bow Hollow and Stern Reflex are performance enhancers taken from the latest racing craft and adapted to give a larger cruiser a lift in speed. The deck layout is arranged to maximize space and comfort and allow for single-handed sailing. A new Whitlock® pedestal provides more space for electronics and more room to move around the cockpit. A massive sail locker can house the extra propane tanks and other gear with room to spare. Accommodations are spacious and luxurious. The master cabin is aft with a real queen size inner spring mattress and plenty of storage, while the guest suite with a double inner spring mattress is forward and includes a private head, shower and vanity. The aft head doubles as day head and offers a separate stall shower. The Corian® covered galley is well thought out and includes separate stainless steel refrigerator and freezer, double stainless sink and a dual range with oven. A lighted dishware drying compartment complete with the dishes is standard, as is the microwave. Hunter's engineers have utilized every inch of space and it really shows in the salon. A u-shaped convertible dinette and opposing sofa will comfortably seat 8 and the large navigation station holds all the current electronics. A flat-panel television and Bose® stereo enhance the experience aboard.

History
Current owner is an Architect and Engineer from California. In 2005, he closed his office after 30 years of independent practice, bought this boat and sold his residence. He and his wife moved onto the boat and spent 2 years working on it with the goal of sailing across the pacific ocean and cruising the south pacific. The boat was 1 year old, originally purchased new from Hunter by a gentleman who is a financial planner. It was virtually still in new condition as he seldom used it, and it had only 75 hours of run time on the engine. The boat was taken out in SF Bay only several times during the two years of preparation for the journey.
The current owner has a long history of involvement with marine engineering. He began building boats with his father at age 8, and over the course of his lifetime has owned 7 boats of various types: outboards, inboards and sailboats. He and his brother established a retail marine and recreational boaters' supply house prior to his college education and movement into the Architecture and structural engineering field. His brother continued on for the duration of about 32 years running the marine shop.
His father was a master machinist and mechanical engineer that coached him to be thorough and meticulous in his handiwork.
All work which was done on the boat was engineered and completed without compromises. Only the highest quality materials and equipment were used. All parts that were not obtained commercially were hand fabricated either from 316 stainless or 6016 T-6 tempered aircraft aluminum alloy and hard anodized. All hardware is bolted together with FDA quality 316 fasteners, greased to prevent galvanic corrosion at the heads and threads. All nuts are nylon insert locking nuts. Wood pieces were fabricated from solid teak or marine grade luan white mahogany plywood, 6-coated with polyurethane marine finish. All wood panels in storage locker are match-fitted for removal which allows service access. All factory "bugs" were diagnosed and repaired.
The voyage began on September 2008 and included brief layovers in the Marqueses, Society Islands, Tuamotus, French Polynesia, and Tonga. The final arrival in Fiji was in December 2008. All systems performed as planned without damage or failure and generally fine weather conditions were consistently enjoyed throughout the passage.
The owner is currently working on his own development project on the island, and doesn't have the time he would like to spend enjoying the use of the boat. The decision was made to sell the yacht and focus on his current projects.
