The walk through U-shaped galley is very usable.  There is a refrigerator with freezer built into the aft bulkhead and a large icebox further forward.

There is lots of storage and plenty of counter space.

The engine is in a compartment that forms the base of the companionway. It is accessible from all four sides. This make routine maintenance and inspection a breeze. On top of the engine compartment and behind the companionway steps are a series of little shelves, very handy forClick here for larger image of Hunter 40 galley storing all those little things that you like to have accessible from the cockpit.

Next forward and to port is the aft facing nav station with plenty of space for all the electronics. This location at the base of the companionway makes it most accessible from the cockpit.

The main salon features a huge wrap around dining area to starboard and a settee to port. The port settee easily converts into a spacious berth, and the dinette also could sleep an additional guest. There is a teak and holly cabin sole, white walls with hardwood trim, giving the the cabin an open yet traditional feeling. The Weems and Plath bronze clock and barometer add to the warmth of the cabin.  There is storage everywhere, in the table for wine and silverware .. behind and above the cushions.  Two solar vents (one has a Nicad battery and operates 24/7), 2 opening hatches and 6 opening ports make this a very comfortable  salon in any conditions.

The forward cabin is a guest stateroom with a generous vee berth with foam mattress, private access to the head with shower, two large hanging lockers and plenty of room to dress and read in privacy. With two opening overhead hatchesClick here for larger image of Master Stateroom, accent lights and reading lights, this is a very light and airy stateroom.
