1995 Hunter 430

I have been looking for a production boat for a few years........toronto, buffalo, florida, Mass, etc.......I have spent some money on surveys and then declined because the issues were big.....
I guess what I am trying to say I have looked at alot of boats in the last couple of years in the $120,000.00 range.....(bennys and hunters) and we have seen alot of boats that we feel are not worth it....

I ended up purchasing a 1995 Hunter 430 that we put on offer on 20 monthes ago......they declined the offer and I walked.......two weeks ago we decided to go back and veiw the boat, and hit him with a chirstmas offer................they took it, and we couldnt be happier........

it will need alot of money and work to get this boat sailing

Navicula is mine and it is so close to home

Re: 1995 Hunter 430

congratulations on your new boat! And on your extreme patience! 20 months has got to be some kind of record for counter offers.

Re: 1995 Hunter 430

I am looking at the very same boat right now. Any chance we could chat? I would appreciate your thoughts and an opportunity to ask some questions. Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks!

Re: 1995 Hunter 430

I've owned a 1996 Hunter 430 for a couple of years and know that boat inside and out. If you need any advice or have any questions, let me know. It's an outstanding boat for the money!

How bad does the liner restrict access for you?

Re: 1995 Hunter 430

the liner (head line or bottom bildge area)has not been a problem............there is access to the existing wiring and tankage.....I have not been behind the fridge or freezer. and I have added some new 4 inch access holes in the medicine cabinets to check the plumbing...(they work very well)

I would assume that there are areas more difficult but I have not been there yet
