Talking Hunter Vision 32

I just got a Vision 32 and would like to talk to other owners. It is a 1990. I love the looks, I have not sailed her yet.

We have a 1990 V32. Our friends across the canal also have a V32, 1991 model. We're in Punta Gorda, Fl

I am considering buyinga Vision 32 1989. How do you like yours now that you have had it almost a year? I like to boat for the size & space. I am not sure I will like the stayless system and the small head sail.

My Hunter Vision 32 Hull #6

I have owned a Hunter Vision 32 now for many year. My boat is Hull #6.

I love the boat for San Francisco Bay use. It has a great sail plan and handles well under sail and power. It is the only boat I know of that powers backwards with good control...

I have added the PYI Folding Prop and would add that to any sail boat for many reasons.

The interior space is better than any other boar I have seen for this length.

We've owned our Vision 32, Serenasea for almost 5 years now, and love her. After some upgrades to the rigging and elecrical, she is pretty solid even off-shore. We sail the Delta, SF bay and coast. The only things I don't like is the main being a lot of work to raise (480 sq. ft. full batten) and she gets pretty squirrily down wind on the ocean when it get's blustery. But for the most part she's very solid.

We have a 1994 Vision 36. Love it. We took delivery in March 09. Have done many repairs and upgrades. We sail in the San Francisco bay. Always double reefed. Let me know if you have any questions.

We are thinking about buying a Hunter Vision 32 to sail on the San Francisco bay and see at least two people have done so. Is it necessary to sail the boat with the main reefed? How comfortable is it to sail on in the summer on the bay?

You only need to reef when you need to reef. Most boats reef when the wind becomes too strong.

Sure, Visions carry a lot of sail and they need to reef sooner. But, when the wind is light they are fast!
