About this Sailboat:
This is one of the original Cherubini designed Hunters. This boat was built as a cutter rig but has since been converted to a sloop rig. A quality boat that has made many offshore trips from NC to the Bahamas throughout the years. This is a three owner boat (all owners living in Washington, NC) and I personally know the previous two owners and know that it has been extremely well maintained and cared for throughout the years. I still have a file with original Yanmar instruction manuel for engine, as well as many other manuals and details of what has been maintained/updated throughout the years. It does need some cosmetic updating. I have let the teak begin to go grey just from personally not caring to deal with the constant maintenance to keep teak looking good. Deck paint is warn in some places. I have bought new non-skid deck paint but have not gotten around to applying it.
Other pluses that I have loved about this boat are the full standup shower isolated from the rest of the head so you aren’t getting your sink, toilet, floor and walls wet while you shower. The toilet was replaced last summer (2011) and all plumbing lines were replaced around 2007. Toilet pumps overboard or into holding tank. The air conditioning unit can either draw raw water in for cooling, or use water supplied from the dock. This is one feature I LOVE about his boat. There is an hookup right next to the shore power outlet in the cockpit to screw a water hose into. While docked you can run the entire boat – AC, sinks, showers, off of dock water so as not to deplete your holding tanks. The main benefit to this is that when i have been in a harbor with little water circulation and lots of floating seaweed or jelly fish, my friends were constantly being woken up to their AC’s overheating due to a clogged strainer. A MAJOR inconvenience in my opinion to have to lay in the bilge and unclog a strainer numerous times in the middle of the night. Never an issue on this boat.
