is the Hyundai of sail boats.
Nothing at all wrong with that, a Hyundai will get you to work just as well as a Rolls Royce will, but it is a Hyundai. As long as you are aware of that, you'll most likely be fine.
I came very close to buying
an 03 356 myself, but found too many structural issues during survey
, boat was beautifully maintained and equipped and I could tell she had not been neglected or abused.
I ended up spending the same money
on a much older but I believe better constructed boat.
It all depends on what you have to pay for it really.
I would strongly advise you to go onto the Hunter
owners group and ask there. They told me what the issues to look for on a 356 were, and you know what? I'd have likely missed those if they had not told me exactly what to look for.
They would very likely be a good resource for a Surveyor
too. I told both Surveyors that I hired that their job was to talk me out of buying
the boat, that if I didn't buy, they did their job, both were surprised by that comment, but both took it seriously.
