PRELIMINARY INFORMATION SUBJECT TO OWNER'S APPROVAL
Borrowing heavily from the ideas of Hunter owners, dealers and prospective customers, the popular 36 represents the end collaboration of enthusiast feedback, brought to life by the hands and minds of Hunter engineers. The extra wide beam spans nearly the entire length of the boat to maximize both topside and interior accommodations. A large sail locker easily stores gear, while the generously proportioned cockpit features a Lewmar® steering system, fold-up tables and plenty of room for relaxation.
Whether you are ready to set sail for the islands or just around the buoys, the Hunter 36 can really make a difference. Starting with the tall, fractional rig, which is a direct descendant of the B&R rig that powered Hunter's Child to a second place finish in the recent BOC, Hunter has engineered the mast to carry less weight aloft with smaller sections. This is accomplished by utilizing swept-back spreaders and reverse diagonals as well as mast support struts. This combination provides superior strength without a backstay and increases the stability at the same time. Hunter has eased the effort in sail handling and allowed for real versatility for all wind and sea conditions. Your benefit: better performance with less effort.
The deck layout reflects the innovation that accompanies the rig. An integrated arch protects the cockpit from snapping main sheets and blistering sun with the optional bimini. This arch keeps the cockpit clear and open. A custom console stands ready with the standard VHF and instruments. Single lever control and fold down table along with engine instrumentation complete the command station. The swim platform and walk through transom complete with shower and folding ladder are perfect for water sports or for boarding the tender. Storage is everywhere you look and the non-skid is absolutely first-rate.
Comfort is truly important aboard whether for a week or a year, so Hunter has created an interior that not only looks good, but works for you as well. Two private, large staterooms along with an enormous head with shower and a salon that can seat eight plus a gourmet galley will keep all the crew happy.
If you're looking for major comfort in a mid-size package and performance is important, then the Hunter 36 could be your answer. Our offering, "WHAT A HOOT", is a well cared for example of the Hunter 36 and is well worthy of your inspection.

The Hunter 36 is equipped with the well-known B & R rig, with swept back double spreaders replacing the need for a backstay. With it's in mast furling, roller furling head sail and all control lines led aft to the cockpit, she is a breeze to sail as a couple or single handed.

All in all a delight to sail, responsive and easy to handle- designed to make it fun, not work!
Among her many other features, "WHAT A HOOT" has a super reliable Yanmar engine (that is only halfway through her factory break-in period), teamed up with a Gori three blade folding prop, giving her the power to punch through most weather at close to hull speed and get you where you want to go.
