BACK ON THE MARKET DUE TO FINANCE FAILURE - This 2008 Hunter 49 is available for purchase after spending its recent life cruising the coastal waters between Sydney and the Whitsunday Islands. A private vessel, she is well optioned and Hunter yachts are well known for their generous internal and cockpit spaces.

A great entertainer, this air-conditioned vessel boasts a huge galley with multiple refrigeration units, a large saloon and lounge area, and three large double cabins, with the owner’s cabin featuring a semi walk-around double and separate rooms for the shower and toilet.

The cockpit is an entertainer’s delight with a modern large fully covered cockpit with walk-through transom, transom gates, seating for up to 12 people. The folding cockpit table is centre mounted and incorporates an ice box. The design provides a roomy environment which is both comfortable and easy to navigate. A great place to entertain.

A Yanmar 100hp engine delivers reliable propulsion, and there is an extensive Raymarine navigation package fitted. There is a bow thruster, generator, solar panels, and wind generator. This vessel is equipped for extended cruising with a 600 litres fuel tank. The standing rigging has just been replaced in 2019 and there is an in-mast furling mainsail and self-tacking Genoa for convenience.

The owners are selling to move onto their next adventure.
