See video links below.
1980 Hunter Sailboat repowered with a great running Yanmar 2GM20. Rebuilt transmission.
Wheel steering. Shore power. Raymarine Autohelm. Aluminum Lewmar Portlights. Bomar forward hatch. Anchor locker with raw water washdown. Harken ST winches serviced last year. Harken RF new control line last year. New lifelines by Chesapeake Rigging 1x19 last year.

Over the past 5 years the boat has seen many items replaced. Running gear (including the prop shaft, stuffing box, cutlass bearing, tranny replaced and a reconditioned prop) updated. The engine runs great and the tank is clean with recent Parker fittings and a big Racor. New exhaust elbow and stainless riser. Engine head zinc replaced.

New electrical panel for both the 110V (galley and head) and 12V. NewMar 2 bank charger / 12v supply. Battery monitors Amp and Voltage, 3-way Rule Bilge Pump with working float switch, 1000W Inverter (never used or installed) included, Caframo fan in the main cabin. Lots of new wiring. All LED -you would not believe the energy savings. With every light in the boat on it equals what one incandescent bulb draws! Running and steaming lights. (Masthead needs bulb replacement as well as Windex arrow replaced :)

40 Gallon flexible water tank inside a former 30 gallon water tank <- the original is pitted. Dometic porta-potty. Used to be plumbed to a standard marine head and holding tank.

There are some quirks that you may want fixed. I'm not concerned with going out on a vessel as much as I am into ensuring I return. As a solo-sailor this is a no-compromise topic. The money I have put in it all went to seaworthiness and it's ready for a new owner to continue the upgrades.

It is now on the hard and ready for your inspection. I will splash it in a few months and use it until she sells. The price is firm as you get what you see. I got a bank loan to purchase her. Your best bet if you don't want to pay for haul costs but want a hull survey is to come look at it now.

This boat is seaworthy. I have spent weeks aboard on the bay. The latest upgrade was new 1 x 19 life lines from Chesapeake Rigging to replace the coated meat-hook lifelines. The top and bottom lifeline gates on both sides are very big. My next upgrade would be to add an air-cooled refrigeration unit to convert the rather large ice box. Ice is what keeps me having to go ashore more than anything. US Coast Guard safety package provided. Flares, 2 fire extinguishers, 4 type 2 life jackets, horn, throwable, etc.

This is the Tall Mast / Deep Keel version. She makes a solid 6 knots upwind and 7 downwind in the right conditions.

Check out some sailing videos and a walkthrough from when I first bought it 10 years ago to get an idea of the layout.
