Owners' reviews of the Hunter 30

We are looking for input from current and former owners of Hunter 30s for an upcoming boat review. Specifically, we're looking for input on the John Cherubini-designed model, the one in production from about 1973 to 1983. Do you own, or have you owned, this version of the Hunter 30? Perhaps you know someone who owns or has owned one? (If so, please forward this message!)

Please send your comments to Dan Spurr at: danspurr@aol.com by January 25.

Specifically, Dan wants to know about:

  • sailing characteristics (good and bad)
  • build quality (issues and accolades)
  • what you like most about the boat
  • what you like least about the boat
  • specific problems you've had with this boat (such as leaky hull/deck joint)
  • advice you would give to someone considering buying this boat

Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us," we're eager to hear from you!

And if you're not a Hunter 30 sailor, please disregard this message and stay tuned for future messages. We're bound to review a boat you own or once owned.
