Pros:
Cons:

We purchased Belle-Vie last March. Our previous boat was an H28. San Juan and Gulf Islands engulf our cruising grounds. She handles like a dream and is one solid well built boat. Much stiffer compared to the H28. Solos very easy.

The surveyor said she is a new boat, very low hours and light use. She needed mostly cosmetic clean up and systems servicing.

Roomy with loads of storage, ample use of teak wood throughout, a very comfortable owner's cabin aft and private guest cabin forward.

Hunter did a wonderful job on this boat. Plenty of propulsion power, fast under sail and easy to handle in tight quarters.

I would choose this boat again, no regrets.

Great looking boat below. Bought it mostly on sight & great surveyors reports, yes 3 of them, Hull, Rigging & Engine.
Since then, 4 years of cruising & living aboard, I have discovered some problems.
1. The thru-hull valves & the packing gland in the engine room are located such that unless you are a Baboon, you can't reach them.
2. The boat is built from an inner & outer shell. The plumbing & wiring are attached to these shells before the boat is assembled. There is almost no access to them. I was told by a Hunter advisor, when I asked how to get to the fwd shower plumbing, get a Sawsall and cut a hole in the liner, do the repairs & put a patch over the hole. I an getting good at cutting round holes and installing deck plates.
3. The galley exaust fan blows into the 2-5 inch space between the inner and outer shells. In the cold climate here, British Columbia, this causes massive condensation to occur, which drizzels out into the back cupboards & book shelves, soaking everything.
This is just a sample. If you have questions, I will try to reply.
