You can go to yachtworld.com and search the listings. You should find enough listings to compare price.

You might also consider other boats of that era, including Catalina and beneteau. However, I think they will be more expensive.

Hunter is a low budget boat builder. For that kind of money for a 27 you should consider better quality boats. Cal, C&C, or Catalina all provide better design and construction for that money.

Take a look at this review of a Hunter 28 http://www.yachtsurvey.com/boatreviews/hunter28.htm and it should answer any questions as to why I offer this advice.

Do all Hunters have cored hulls? I think some of them do. Not sure about that era.

I would check into that, I am not a fan of cored hulls. A cored hull can trap moisture and become a large head ache. I would check that out, and of course a survey would indicate if there was any problems.

SailingFool,

I think you and i share the same feeling (I was just trying to say it a little different!!). The later model Hunters seem to have a better rep, but it was the 90's that a lot of people got burnt. Ian, if you are reading this, your boat might be fine... it might not. Given the cost difference between your boat and that of other Hunters of the same vintage, I would be conscerned you are in the wrong crowd... or maybe it is just the deal of a lifetime (er, hmm)????? But if you are going to drop what would be in the mid 20's or so... you should do more research on the merits of other boats, including Catalina, which have a more solid reputation with many people. Beneteaus are solid, C&C, and too many others to mention. If you are stuck on that particulair boat as the 'boat of a lifetime', well, get a good survey.

PS Not trying to sound negative to you or any other Hunter owners... no offense please.

To the best of my knowledge, Hunter does not use cored hulls any models. any years, nor does Catalina, Cal, or Beneteau.

I saw a cored hull on a boat that sunk last fall, it was paper thin.
She was in a local yard after hitting the bottom last October.

The hull was diffinetly cored, you could see the sandwich after she was ripped wide open.


Edited post....
Found this from a review of a 2006 49'. I wanted to make sure I was not going crazy.

"Forward sections of the hull have been reinforced with Kevlar. The hull sides above the waterline have a Balsa core, which makes for a lighter hull and also adds both sound and thermal insulation."

Cored hulls above the waterline are far different than cored hulls. Some boats, like the southern cross 31 have cored hulls... even below the waterline. While the SC31 is an excellent boat, if there are any problems with damage to the glass below the waterline or with improperly installed thru-hulls, the results can be very, very expensive to repair, when compared to what would happen on a non-cored hull or one that is not cored below the waterline.

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.
