It would help if you said what you were looking to do with said boat. Chuckles has pretty much nailed the major reason for the price difference, but if you're looking for a boat to cross oceans, you might want to consider other boats as well. The reputation of the Hunters, especially older ones, as ocean crossing boats is not stellar.

It would also help to say what your budget is, since any boat can be had at a low price, but the ones that sell at the low-end of their price market are usually selling there for a reason, and generally getting them back in reasonable shape is more expensive than buying one in good condition to start with.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
