My wife and I are planning to go on an extended cruise within the next 3-5 years. So far, sailing up and down the US east coast and island hopping around the Bahamas and Caribbean are on the itinerary but no ocean crossings (for now). We've seen some Hunter Legend 35.5's and 37.5's from the early to mid 90's that would be in our price range and I have to say appear to be very appealing contenders for the type of cruising we're thinking of doing. I think the tiny cockpits and cramped interiors of the average bluewater boat would drive us nuts and would be overkill. While there are certainly other boats we'll consider, I'm determined to judge the Hunters on their own merits before dismissing them based on opinions of the brand that are not necessarily based on reality.
