The owner bought this boat in 2015
General condition and any additional information
THIS IS A MOST UNIQUE HUNTER 18. She has a 2011 built Hull where as the rest of the gear was from the original owner is from his barely used 2007 Hunter 170.
What makes this even more unique is that the boat has been KEPT IN A BARN out of the weather thus the shine on the hull is EXCEPTIONAL.
ADDITIONALLY, where as the original hull and rig was sailed LESS than 10 times, the replacement FIBERGLASS HUNTER 18 hull that the factory sent the owner to replace the original plastic Hunter 170 hull has only been in the water 3 times. The rig and sails have only be up 13 times ! !
So basically you have a brand new Fiberglass Hunter 18 with comparable rigging that is toned down just a bit. This is because the Hunter 170 weighed in @ 478 lbs and the Hunter 18 weighs in @ 836 lbs and is a few inches wider with a chine built in at the water line to add to even more stability. The standard Hunter 18 has 170 sq feet of sail area (VERY SPORTY) and this Hunter 18 with the 170 rig has a still potent but more manageable with 150 sq feet of sail area. Bottom line , this New Looking Hunter 18 is easier to sail short handed or in windy conditions and has MUCH more STABILITY for you and your family than the Hunter 170 or than for a New from the factory Hunter 18. Except for the most avid racer this is a nifty trade out.
Note the photos that show the shine on the hull and how little use this boat has ever had and you will come to a conclusion that there would be little point in paying 16,000 to 17,000 for a new Hunter 18 when you can buy this STORED IN A BARN Hunter 18 for only a bit over 7,500.00 ! !
