I've heard alot of people talking about Hunter boats being coastal cruisers only, is this true and if so why. are they poorly constructed?

Hi and welcome to the forum. Before I give my opinion, which won't be much, a bit of advise. You're really asking in the wrong forum and using the wrong title to get a fair amount of replies. Goto the fleet/monohull section and simply ask again with your question as the title.

Back to the subject, I too am considering a Hunter as my next boat, i'm interested in either a 376 or 410, both from the late '90's. To my mind, they do seem to represent good value for money and I do think that they are very pretty, modern looking boats. However, I have read that the good looks are only surface deep and the build quality tends to be a bit worse than some others. Having said that, just like buying an old car, history and survey is everything. I'd rather buy a 10 year old Ford that has been looked after than a 5 year old Merc' that has been abused for example.

Welcome Patric. I sail a Hunter, and she sails and handles very well. If you have a specific model in mind, and have specific questions, you might find this site useful as I have. - Home

Best wishes with your boat shopping.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
As was stated, your question could be under the forum monohulls. A quick answer is that some are and some aren't. Specific models have specific purposes.
Kind of like asking if a Chevy can pull a camping trailer. Yes, if it is a truck and no if it is a Metro.
kind regards,
