Liveaboard Cruising Question?
 
Hello all,
Have to ask im in the market for a liveaboard boat in the next year or soI am New to this But I was looking at the hunter 32 vision and regular hunter 36 style. I know the vision is roomy but not sure how they sail it will be myself and wife and living in key largo and cruisin that area mostly maybe bahamas and every once in a while sail back to cape may nj..So does anyone have any advice on these boats for overall what im looking to do or should I start looking at another type of boat.

thanks for any Help!!!!!
John

Hunters are bang-for-the-buck and provide good living accommodation...People talk of blue water boats, which I own, but only 3-4 days in the last 35,000 nm did we need the big blue water boat.

For what you plan go for easy living!!!

Good luck

Don't get hung up on finding the mythical perfect boat, but get the boat you like, can find, and afford and enjoy the lifestyle. There are more regrets from those that waited too long to make the jump than those that ever did on the "wrong boat".

We were intent on buying 38 ft+ but ended up with a 33 footer that doesn't appear on any blue water lists, however it fulfills our needs pretty darn well. Every time I think about how much cheaper it was to buy and is to maintain it brings a smile to my face. I'd so go smaller if your happy thst out can do the job and throw the savings into the cruising kitty.

:whistling:Iv'e seen Hunters in quite a few anchorages over the years !! So maybe ya just need to cruise when and where there's good weather ! Not a really hard thing to do in this day and age ! with all the electronic gagets for weather out there !Connie and I just saw a couple of them In Isla M when we picked up a power boat to take back to Louisiana ! And both had been below Belize !! Maybe it's in somebodys head ya can't tell the weather maybe?? Cus the Caribe seems to work for somefolks sailin Hunters !!:trash:

My husband and bought a 1972 36' Gulfstar Center Cockpit Motorsailor, 2 cabin. We are full time liveaboards and are very comfortable. With a full keel that draws only 3 1/2 ft., perfect for coastal cruising and cruising the Bahamas. That's where we're headed:-)

Hunters have always had very roomy and good live a board interiors and after all that is what you are wanting to do so it sounds like a decent choice.
