FWIW, here''s a review of a 1991 Hunter 28 by an experienced surveyor:

you really think having a boat like mine I would look at a hunter ?

Kidding aside, some people like Hunters and thats fine with me, we all are sailors and that excuses a lot.

A 33 cherubini designed maybe, but although a reasonable boat by all means, not my cup of tea either.

Reasle value ? My parents had a early 80 28 footer, also not all that bad, beats the newer ones by hands and leaps, but the resale value wasnt all that great either.
sorry had to say it.

darn my wife likes the 26 capri .... do they built them in wood also ?

The surveyor of the 1991 Hunter 28 is an experienced surveyor of powerboats, not sailboats. I don''t challenge his report, however I read his report many months before I purchased my Hunter 28.

I''ve been down to the Hunter factory in the middle of nowhere, FL. My career is in the OEM and Tier 1 Automotive industry, I''ve seen good and bad production lines. The people at Hunter know what they are doing.

Thorsten may have all the answers. I, however believe the Hunter 28 will serve Wall''s purposes.

Wall and I may be in a similar situation. I am away from my boat for long periods of times. The H28 doesn''t need much attention and performs well in light air. The open transom is stylish and the interior is nice. This is my 2nd sailboat, which serves my purposes for enjoyment, learning and making mistakes. I''d rather make my mistakes on my $25k boat before I reach the only goal I have before my 25th birthday...living on sailboat #3, "Possible Reality". Yup, boat #3 named but not yet found.

Cheers,

I say get a J27 or J29 or J30, they are all decent light wind bpats ans have decent accomadations, and all of the used Js can be bought for under 30,000 dollars. A really nice one can be had for a little more denaro.
