A good friend of mine has a Hunter 34, about the same year, and loves it. He bought his for about $20K, 2 years ago. A lot of people (including those who are active in this email group) don''t like Hunters. I''m kind of neutral on this brand of boats. If you like the boat and it has a good survey and you''re buying for a good price, sounds like you have found your boat. The only thing you may want to consider strongly is resale--is it a boat you will be able to sell when its time to move on. You don''t want to get stuck with a boat when you find your next dream boat. Good luck.
