Hunter 34

I''m seriously considering buying a 1983 Hunter 34 which is in clean and good condition. After looking at 100s of boats on the internet and 25+ in person, we selected this boat based on solid appearance and amount of boat for $. The survey indicated no structural problems, no blisters and very little maintenance needs. I am a converted power boater with not a lot of sailing experience. I will be sailing in the southern Chesapeake Bay, mostly weekend cruising with my wife. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hunter 34

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.

Hunter 34

Rick and tyra,
I managed a repair yard that did Hunters warranty work. What I found was that Hunter built a good boat for its designed function. That was a spacious, comfortable boat that was easy to sail. I knew one couple who lived aboard one comfortably. For bay sailing, it is great. Resale shouldn''t be a problem if you maintain the boat. There will always be someone just like yourself that loves your boat at a fair market price.
