Pros:
Cons:

This is a very nice boat for the average weekender. The walk - thru transom lets you go aboard without having to climb over the side of the boat. The boat is light and has
a lot of sail. This makes you have to reef earlier than a lot of other boats. The boat is very easy to single hand,
and is very responsive. The cockpit is very large for a 28'. The cabin has a lot of glass and is very light. This
design is one of the few that has room for a person that is
over 6 foot to be able to have a bed big enough to sleep in.

Pros:
Cons:

Fractional Rig
18 hp Yanmar Diesel
110% Furling Genoa
Full batten, full roach Mainsail
No backstay
Stern seats
Alcohol stove

The lack of a backstay is very good, because it cleans up the cockpit and stern seats. The problem is that this limits the headsail to just a 110%, as opposed to 150 or 155%, like some of the competitors.

Overall, it is a great boat. The price included all of the nickel and dime stuff that you need (dock lines, anchor, life jackets, etc.) This is part of the Hunter Cruise Pac and philosophy of customer satisfaction.
