Hunter vs. Beneteau

I think that if you look carefully at the quality, size and strength of the fittings and standing rigging the Beneteau will win hands down. I also think that Beneteau does a better job on their interior finishing. Both are production boats and as such are compromises. You should also consider the Catalina boats in this size range. I think they are comparable with the Beneteau and are also a step above the Hunters. BTW, I have owned two Catalina boats in the past and currently have a two year old Beneteau 321. We really did not consider the Hunter seriously and picked the Beneteau over the Catalina based on the look of the interior, a purely personal decision. Whichever you choose just get out and enjoy it. I see many fine boats sit at the marina unused.

Good luck,

Herb
