Layouts and Accommodations: A two-cabin, two-head plan is accented with lots of well-thought-out details and the 14’ beam helps to create a large, very homey interior that’s welcoming—even to those not used to sailboats. From the cockpit, an easily-maneuvered curved stairway (it’s too significant to be called a companionway) leads down to the airy salon. The U-shaped settee to starboard and straight settee to port have overstuffed cushions and bookend a large dining table. There’s also an additional double seat mid-ships, so up to 10 can easily gather in this well-lit and comfortable salon. A shallow step down leads to a nicely finished galley to port, with acres of countertop space finished in Corian and fiddles to keep lunch from flying. The dual-opening refrigerator and freezer are immense, as are the many cupboards that make an easy job of stowing lots of provisions. Across from the galley is a navigation station with plenty of desk space for paper charts as well as room to install electronics. The nav seat tucks up against the head compartment, which houses a head and sink. To port, and accessible via the aft cabin, is the shallow tub and a stand-up shower. The master stateroom is expansive and includes a standard-sized queen berth with an innerspring mattress that takes off-the-shelf size linens. This island berth is offset to port, which leaves room for a seating area and a desk to starboard. Stowage here, as throughout the rest of the boat, is ample. There is also a guest cabin with a Pullman double berth and a forepeak head/shower combo. The Hunter’s interior appeal could be the ample lighting, the good ventilation created by many ports and hatches, or the glow of the spray-lacquered teak furniture, which creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. It could also be the 6’ 6” headroom that gives it a spacious feeling.
