Hunter 45', 1999

Boat Name: Yippee HiHo

The Hunter Passage 450 was designed, engineered and built to provide the owners the ultimate in comfort and livability. The spacious salon is both well ventilated and well lit with its many ports, hatches and the innovative Hunter windshield. Dining, entertaining, or just relaxing is all easily accomplished aboard the 450.

Moving aft from the salon, the mid-cabin head is positioned to enhance access from the salon and cockpit areas. Corian counters, plentiful storage and an easy-to-clean finish make the head practical and good looking.

The owner's suite offers superb accommodations in an expansive area. A real queen-size, memory foam mattress (new in June 2008) adorns the master berth while a huge amount of hanging lockers and shelving provide great storage. The combination shower and bathtub lie behind the custom shower door and the desk/computer station is perfect for the mobile executive.

Forward, you'll find the guest stateroom with a full-size double berth and a full set of drawers and hanging lockers plus a private head with shower. Extended cruising or living aboard, the fully equipped galley makes it so easy. Wide Corian fiddled counters give plenty of prep space and the dual opening refrigerator makes access quick and easy. Twin stainless sinks, a convenient cutting board, gimbaled range and oven plus a microwave will thrill any chef. Secure storage and non-slip flooring makes cooking in a seaway safe and easy. The Passage, strength and comfort - stem to stern.
