Pros:
Cons:

The boat was delivered to me in May of 1998. She is a fractionally rigged sloop with an extremely large mainsail with total sail area of 875 sq.ft. She has a deep keel (6"5") and 37"10" waterline. She is a very fast boat. She easily achieves hull speed of 8.2 knots with a flexi-fold folding propellor and a 50hp Yanmar. In 15 knots or more of wind she also achieves hull speed on any point of sail except a "dead" downwind run.
The interior accomodations are excellent. The refrigerator and freezer do not work properly and Hunter has not yet found a "fix". This is a common problem with new large Hunters. Nevertheless, the interior is well thought out and executed. Offshore use would require the installation of lee cloths.
The build quality of the Hunter 410 is similar to its cost competitors, Catalina and Beneteau. These production boats appear to have sufficient quality to go offshore. The significant difference in cost, between these production boats and their limited production counterparts (Sabre, Tartan, C&C), is twofold. First, the limited production boats normally do have better fit and finish and woodwork (especially below); and Second, Hunter, Catalina and Beneteau can offer better value because of their large volumes.
Thus far, I am very pleased with this boat. Her performance is very good. Fast, with little weather helm. I would pay particular attention to the difference in performane between the deep keel version and the wing keel version and the furling main and full batten version. It may well be that there are rather large performance differences between these two versions.
