Hunter 28 Is this a good deal?

1989 Hunter 28 sailboat for sale in Georgia

Seeking opinions on this boat. Would it make a good coastal cruiser? Does it look like a good deal? TIA. Hank

Have you sailed on a Hunter 28? Plenty of room down below for that size boat. If you like the way it sails then...

...$8K with the dinghy and outboard? Doesn't look like a bad deal. Survey, Survey, Survey would be my first three suggestions. Looks like there was some repair work around the chainplates.

I'm not expert and the only reason I reply is because I chartered what I believe to be a similar boat (Hunter 295) and thought it was a great party boat because of all the room below and the big walk out cockpit. However I did not like the way it sailed. Don't get me wrong, it sailed OK, but I would have had more fun sailing another boat.

I just read a review of the Hunter 28 posted on sailnet by a marine surveyor who trashed the boat. Wow, he did not like it one bit. I will keep looking and pass on this one.

That's not true. He liked the anchor locker!

Pascoe does NOT like any boat that most of us CAN AFFORD and makes no bones that he feels most of us cant really afford to take care of a boat

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

they are decent boats, sail on it, spend some time below just poking around and see what YOU think. Pascoe is only one opinion, and believe me Hunter has sold tons of boats. With experience, some TLC and a few upgrades this boat would make an excellent coast hugger. They are comfortable and easy to maintain. She looks to be in good shape, and well kept.

Is the Hunter the most reasonably priced 28 footer?
