Sold ... let us help you sort through the choices.

Hunter 40 waiting for you at the dock  ......   If you have been waiting for a 4 cabin (or even a 3 cabin ) boat for your larger family or group of friends, this is your chance.

The Farr Yacht designed 461 is a solid bluewater cruiser with impressive speed and a rig that is innovative and efficient. Strength and reliability have been built into every aspect. An incredibly spacious, bright and well-ventilated interior is complemented by beautiful traditional exterior lines.

She was awarded 1997 Boat of the Year Category: Full-Size Cruiser, Best Value by Cruising World Magazine.

The traditional interior features cherry stained interior finish, with a teak and holly composite cabin sole and wooden cabinet doors with ventilation louvers..  This is nicely set off with the dark blue cushions throughout the boat.  All mattresses and cushions feature a high density foam with removable covers.

In this 4 cabin layout, there are two forward cabins.  Each of the mirror image forward cabins feature a room double berth with storage beneath the berth, a large hanging locker in the aft outboard corner of the stateroom and a bench seat with plenty of floor space for dressing in privacy.  There is a rail around the aft bulkhead and the centerline bulkhead that allows you to install the included third berth as a single bunk above the lower berth to allow this boat to sleep a total of 12 people.

Next aft is the salon, a roomy dining table surrounded by a wrap around settee to starboard, with a central bench seat midships, to allow you maximum dining and entertaining space.  The table lowers to convert to a double berth if desired.  All of the cushions have a dark blue upholstery in good condition.  The central bench seat has a back
