I took delivery of a new Hunter 306, with an in mast furled main and a shoal keel, in June 2002 and have sailed it more than 60 times since, principally offshore in the Gulf of Mexico in seas 1 to 4', in winds 8 - 30kts. This is a solidly built, well appointed, heat-turner that is fun and easy to single hand. It motors at about 6.2kts and sails up to 6.8kts. While only 30' or so LOA, below it has all features needed for coastal cruising. The large, comfortable cockpit is dry and easily sits 4, plus the pilot, and with two extra stern rail seats. Below, there is everything needed for 4 adult sized weekenders or for 4 heartier weeklongers. Lots of storage, full engine access. The nearly all fiberglass deck makes maintenance a simple matter. The open transom a great convenience and safety feature.
I think the 306 is the perfect first family cruiser: an easy to control, sail trim and boat handling classroom and confidence builder. The wiring scheme, systems layout, and accesses are well documented and laid out. The manual is comprehensive and clear. The sub-parts are all brand name OEMs. The only mistake I made buying the 306 was waiting too long to do it.
