Looking to Learn
 
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. HunterOwners.com - 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,
