2007 Hunter 38
Location: Alameda, CA
Length: 38.17 ft
Beam: 12.92 ft
Engine: 40 hp

The Hunter 38 replaced the popular 386, the last of which rolled out of the Florida plant May of 2004, following a highly successful seven year run.  Hunter's famed designer and racer Glenn Henderson returned to the drawing board with one focus in mind.  "Our goal was to design a boat that was an exceptionally comfortable cruiser, yet offered outstanding performance and ease of handling," said Henderson.   The 38 has met -- and excedds all expectations and is a #10 ! 

"No Longer Drifting" is an exceptionally comfortable cruiser!  She has a wing keel and carries an In Mast furling main and 110% furling jib.   She has an upgraded Yanmar 40 hp (from the std 29hp).   Raymarine has her Electronic package covered with Radar / Chartplotter / Autopilot / Knot-Depth-Wind.  Just to add to the COMFORT .. Heat / Air makes it a pleasure year round to be aboard.

Deck and Hull

Hunter utilizes a hand laid FRP hull construction, solid FRP below the waterline, and end grain balsa coring above the waterline.  Vinylester resin is used in the initial layup, then isophalic resin on exterior layers.   In areas of high loads in the hull, Kevlar reinforcement is included in the lamination.  Further, there is a heavily built structural FRP grid bonded into the hull for further stiffness and reinforcement.  The deck is end grain balsa cored except in areas of deck hardware and high loads, where it is solid FRP and backing plates are incorporated for deck hardware, either drilled and tapped or thru-bolted.   The hull to deck joint is an outward turning flange, sealed with 3M 5200 sealant, thru-bolted, and cover 360 degrees with a resiliant rurub rail and s/s insert.
