Hunter Yachts 45CC (2008) - Any Good ?

The 45 Center Cockpit (45CC) looks very nice. Is the quality any good? Better than a jeanneau, beneteau or elan?

Yes, Hunters are good boats we sail a 36 on SF bay. I would not say better but as good as any production boat, particularly the newer ones say 2001 and newer when Glen Henderson started drawing there hulls.

Every boat has compromise you just have to decide what YOU are looking for.

Nothing wrong with Hunters in general. This particular model came out in 2006. There are 4 owner reviews here:

Re: Hunter Yachts 45CC, any good? (2008)

We just purchased a 2002 Hunter Cc after 3 years of serious research and looking. I LOVE the layout in this one compared to the newer versions...especially the galley and awesome storage. A big PLUS is that our Golden Retriever can go down the curved steps much better than if they had been the newer straight down kind.
