As far as sailing ability, pointing and ruggedness, the ErIcson
, hands down. The Hunter
isn't even in the same league. Yes they are tender
, but at 15 degrees they stiffen up and are awesome. Yes I owned an Ericson
, but it was a 26. The same boat, just shorter. In fact unless you put them side by side they look the same. You will ask get more resale value from the Ericson. Hunters are not as well made, probably slightly lighter,. I loved my Ericson.
