Re: Hunter 35.5 unfo needed

We had a Hunter 35.5 for about 10 years and used it to cross over to & cruise in the Bahamas in 1995-1996. Perfectly capable if a little cramped for a couple, better for a single-hander or smaller couple. Now have a Hunter 433 for last 4 Bahamas trips.

Re: Hunter 35.5 Info Needed

We've had our '87 35.5 since early 2010 and mostly cruised South Florida and the Florida Keys. Haven't been to the Bahamas yet but expect to soon. We usually spend 6 months living on her at a time. For two there's plenty of room if you use the cockpit as additional living area. Ours is fully enclosed via dodger and bimini top. While at anchor we remove the helm wheel and helm / rear fiberglass seat. In that configuration most of our time at anchor is spent enjoying the top side for sun, the cockpit as our sitting area, and the rear portion aft/off the boat as our private swimming area. For my wife and I our 35.5 has plenty of living room, is easy to park when coming into a crowded marina, and is a joy to sail and motor as it's a big ride but not too big. My $0.02.
