Good Day! My wife and I are contemplating the purchase
of a mid- 1980s, 40' Hunter
sailboat. We have searched the forums
and the internet
and have found references
to the "Hunter 40" and the "Hunter 40 Legend" from this era. We have looked through the documentation
that accompanies the vessel that we are considering for purchase
; however, we can find no instance of the word "Legend" mentioned. The current
owner is unable to provide assistance in identification...
My question: Did Hunter
build two 40' boats during this era, one a "Legend" and the other a "Hunter 40," sans Legend?
I apologize if this question has already been addressed and we have somehow overlooked the thread(s)! I am a recovering powerboat guy; and, this will be our first sailboat. We intend to refit
and use the boat to learn and explore the world of sailing; however, prior to purchase, we would like some clarification about the boat. Thank you for your time.
