Info on the new 40 is now posted on the Marlow-Hunter website. A few interesting observations:
- While the LOA
is almost a foot longer than the 41DS, the beam is only 12'2", more than a foot narrower than the 41DS (13'3") and even 9" narrower than the 39.
- Options I believe are new to Hunter
: hard-top, teak interior
(I'd like to see this - one of the few knocks I have on my 39 is the cheap interior
wood), diesel heating
system (handy for us New Englanders trying to stretch the season).
I'd love to have the island bed
, but am curious to see what the headroom
will be. The additional privacy of a second head
would be handy as well.
