2002 Hunter 456 Passage

  • Comfort and spaciousness are the usual hallmarks of a center cockpit cruiser, but at Hunter, we've concentrated on adding real performance and making them easy to sail. The difference lies in the initial design. A modern underbody provides the performance while the innovative deck plan offers safe and easy sail handling, even when short-handed. The cockpit is wide and deep and just right for those long passages. A tall B&R rig gives you the power in the mainsail, which is much easier to tame than a monster genoa, and the in-mast furling system adds to the ease. A specially designed Whitlock gear steering system gives you the smooth control you desire with just the proper amount of feedback you need while the composite rudder and post are corrosion free and stronger than conventional gear. Hunter has gone the extra step in ensuring your comfort and safety at sea. Construction methods are second to none and include the finest in materials, including vinylester resins, Kevlar hull reinforcements, real lead keels and through bolting on the hull to deck joint. Bulkheads and chainplates are bonded directly to the hull and the loads are spread evenly throughout. Accommodations are worth discovering, as the utilization of space is nothing short of incredible. The salon is full of natural light and ventilation is plentiful with screened hatches and ports. A U-shaped galley is situated perfectly for keeping the chef in the conversation and two private staterooms are fitted with inner-spring mattresses and plenty of storage. Come aboard and Discover the Difference for yourself. We know you'll be impressed!

    And So It Goes... has been equipped for the owners plans to go cruising, then thier circumstances changed and they are unable to go. If you are in the market for a large center cockpit boat and are ready to go cruising, This boat is ready for you!
