Hunter 42 passage

Hi guys

I'm very interested in purchasing a secondhand Hunter 42 c/c.
I have read most of the threads posted on this site however I'm just wondering if I may bring the topic back?
Perhaps from current Hunter owners or stories that some may shed some light on the likes and dislikes that can be found upon this model?
I have heard that some hulls are on the slightly light side in the layup although I doubt this would be true?

Cheers from Australia

Re: Hunter 42 passage

Also look at the Hunter 450cc, you'll be surprised at how much extra room you get with the additional 3ft. The stateroom in the stern is awesome.

What are your plans for the boat? Coastal cruising, liveaboard? How much time will you be spending at anchor? If your plans are to mostly day sail, weekend and extended vacationing on the 42.... It would be perfect.

We have had our 42cc for a year and a half now and are still impressed. We live a board full time and it is a great live a board boat. We also find the sailing is great as well. There are some repairs a head which we were aware of when we got the boat.

G'day again.


I'm a live aboard for 5 years now on a 37 ft yacht, I have been looking at the 45 but as I do a lot of solo sailing I was thinking the 42 maybe a bit more of a handful with out a bow thruster, I wonder if bow thruster can be fitted?

I will be blue water cruising and will be leaving Australia shores in the future aboard the hunter.

Which work do you have to do is it due to lack of maintenance or structure factory problems?

I would also wonder how the shallow draft version sails to windward at 30 degrees?

Any nightmare story's from previous hunter owners?

Any help will be appreciated thank you.

Depends on the year of the 42cc you need to see if it is a Viking haul, as for a bow thruster, you can over come maneuverability by having a feathering 4 blade prop, and if possible a non turbo would be good.
