The Hunter 43 is built to perform with all the style and comfort you and your family deserve. Warren Luhrs and the Hunter Design Team have created a boat that is fast, easy to sail, stable and comfortable. Thoughtful touches aboard, like sail design that incorporates a fractional rig, swept back spreaders and a full roach main. This eliminates the need for a backstay and improves sail efficiency and ease of handling.

The exterior design of the 43 include a wraparound windshield with cover, intergrated main sheet arch with instrument pod, two-tone non-skid deck, walk-thru transom, and a huge cockpit with wheel steering. A slippery but stable hull design incorporates a bulbwing keel and spade rudder. Below deck are the amenities that make Hunter famous. A huge salon with convertible dinette, gourmet galley and twin staterooms, each with enclosed head and shower. The Hunter 43 gives you all the flexibility you need in a crusing boat, whether for a weekend or long haul. This boat does it all and does it well. No one else provides you a boat with all the innovations, equipment, comfort or value. See for yourself.
