Designed by the Hunter Design Team and produced by using the patented Advanced Composite Process, the Hunter 170 is the ultimate daysailer. Seating for six is no problem with the wide-open and uncluttered cockpit. The open transom allows for great access for swimming or boarding and there is even a dual access storage area forward to store your provisions. A wide beam will keep you stable while the hull design will really perform on all points of sail. Beginner or seasoned sailor alike will both appreciate the simplified rig with a large main and small jib. A kick-up centerboard and swing-up rudder makes beaching or landing a snap.
Durability and safety are a priority. The Advanced Composite Process integrates ABS plastic, high-density foam and stitch bi-directional cloth into a tough, unsinkable hull, which is far more impact-resistant than traditional fiberglass.
Top-name hardware and sails complete this package into a great family daysailer.
This sailboat is a brand new never sailed 2008 Hunter (still under warranty).
