I have a 2007 H-36 and we love it just the way she is ,no not perfect but to each his own.
She is more than a coastal cruiser,I sailed her from montauk,NY to Florida all ocean,only one day ICW in NC and than ocean to Fort Pierce,FL.

"However, the hull is thin above the waterline and I sure it will not take a beating for long against any hard objects." Lots of hard objects out there and it only takes one.

Re: Hunter 36 Pros and Cons?

Nothing brings out internet boat experts like the word Hunter, even if it takes 3+ years for their chance.

Much better to stay at home. A lot safer for sure.

Re: Hunter 36 Pros and Cons?

From an '04 Hunter 36 owner of 4 months:

Mel's awesome review of the Hunter 36 was one of the main reasons my wife and I bought one. Here are some things we found in 4 months of ownership...

Electric heads aren't standard. Neither are roller furling mains. Probably come come with the Mariner package. My boat is the plain Jane one.

The aft cabin bed IS a true queen size bed. You lie port to starboard. It is VERY tight all the way aft. There's not even enough room to crawl over your bunkmate to go the head. I can't sleep back there. :-( I'm OK if I sleep on the fwd side of the bed, though.) Changing the sheets is quite a process. You must lay on your belly and slither back to tuck in the sheets at the foot (port) side of the bed. *shudder* I didn't think I was claustrophobic... The aft cabin is too hot to sleep in during the summer. (No AC or gen on my boat.) We use the V berth. However, in cool weather, after running the engine, all that warmth is quite nice. The engine also heats up hot water for washing, the tank being under the berth. (We're year round sailors, living in Virginia.)

BTW, the shower stall setup really is nice. Makes you feel quite civilized.

We've cooked some great meals on the stove/oven. The oven has a really nice broiler that also doubles as a fair toaster for English muffins.

The boat goes FAR faster than it has any right to go. We've clocked ourselves at 9 Kts on a beam reach in a 12-15 kt breeze. (With some help from currents.) The 29 HP diesel does a good job in bad conditions, too. In dead calm, you can do 6 kts all day. In heavy winds, in irons and a 2 kt current coming at us, we still managed 3.5. (On a 30 ft Hunter we'd been dragged down to a half knot under the same conditions!)

Overall, we love our hunter 36, and it's a great boat to go cruising with for a week or so.
Our next move is to become full time live boards, and we'll need something bigger. We're pretty sure that'll be a Hunter 456.

Re: Hunter 36 Pros and Cons?

I used to own a Hunter 36 also a 2007 model. I thought the salon sleeting was very uncomfortable. We always envied a friend of mine who owns a 356. His salon seating is sooo comfortable! Checkout a 356 before committing on a 36. There's a ton of them on the market.
