General Description

"Serenity" is a beautiful example of a very well-maintained Hunter 44 Deck Salon. She has enjoyed numerous improvements and exemplary, professional care throughout her lifetime. The current owner has decided to move up in size, which allows her next owner to enjoy a truly turn-key vessel. Ease of handling and navigation is paramount, and addressed with a bow thruster added in 2016, a full array of Raymarine Electronics, all running rigging run aft to the cockpit, and of course roller furling on both main and headsails. Light air performance is greatly enhanced by the addition of a Code Zero light air roller furling sail, new in 2016 as well. Easy to show, she's standing tall and ready to go.

Manufacturer's Description

The Hunter 44 Deck Salon is an innovative cruiser with a performance orientated hull drawn by noted designer and racer, Glenn Henderson, Hunter's Chief Designer. Following on the heels of the tremendously successful Hunter 356, the 44 shares the same sailing attributes. Like the 356, the 44 carries the beam well aft, but the additional beam does not hinder performance or sea keeping ability, it actually enhances it. Wide windows and ports offer a real panorama and the creative layout allows for two full staterooms with two full heads with separate stall showers. Continuing to innovate and go more upscale, this Hunter will offer special amenities such as flat-screen television and Bose Audio systems as standard. Galley appliances are stainless steel and surrounded by genuine Corian countertops. Innerspring mattresses are standard in both spacious staterooms and there is even a special desk/office area in the master.

Sails and Rigging

With Hunter's B&R rig, allowing for a full roach mainsail, Hunter's are among the easiest boats to sail. With roller furling main and headsails, as well as a code zero light air furling headsail, she's a capable and proven coastal cruiser with destinations beyond well within reach.
