Sail Area

Working Sail Area : 840.66 sq ftManufacturer Provided Description
The new Hunter 38 replaces the popular 386, the last of which rolled out of the Florida plant May 27, 2004 following a highly successful seven year run. Hunter’s famed designer and racer Glenn Henderson returned to the drawing board with one focus in mind. “Our goal was to design a boat that was an exceptionally comfortable cruiser, yet offered outstanding performance and easy handling,” said Henderson. “Our new 38 has met — and exceeds — expectations.” The 38 is Hunter’s largest mid-size cruiser in its fleet. While Hunter is quick to acknowledge that the market is competitive in this class, the company believes it is a powerful niche and is confident its new boat will make waves due to its many innovations. In addition, the appearance of the boat itself offers an optional departure featuring red stripes, a red Hunter logo and linen bimini top.Additional Description
