What does Captain Kirk, Popeye, Captain Hook and Tommy Lee have in common? They are all bad ass people. Why? Because they were all in command of ships. You should buy my boat.

I can offer you the opportunity to be in command of this 1993 Hunter 40.5 sailing yacht for far less than that crappy relationship you are currently in is going to cost you.

I present the following:

Girls, Cocaine & Nipple Milk

I can tell you this; the boat I am selling is less than the cost of all that garbage your wife bought at Pottery Barn after spending 3 weeks researching it on Google. You should be ashamed of half of the mall things your wife spent your hard earned cash money and time on. None of it will take you across oceans and it will not get you a drink they call buffaloes milk. Not even close. Do you want your only source of alcohol laden milk to be your pregnant secretary’s nipple? Because I guarantee it doesn’t have 8 types of rum and 4 types of artificial sweetener in it. If it does muchacho then you should be hanging out with Jean Claude Van Damme on a regular basis and won’t be needing this said boat. If you add up all the dumb shit your wife buys it’s probably less than I’m asking and you can have a f*$king BOAT of which can sleep 7 people (or 8 skinny beawches) and will guarantee you more bidness. And honestly, with over $11,000,000 worth of cocaine washing up on the beaches of the Keys this year alone, chances are you’ll be sitting pretty well after just a couple trips along the coast if you keep your eyes peeled. And by the way, if you are the type of person who covers your bed with any amount of (especially more than two) decorative pillows, please do not call about my Boat. I am not interested in selling this to a decorative pillow type which is too bad because you my friend are the type that needs this boat more than anyone.

Recreation, Drinking and Sea Monkeys

I understand you have many options on how to spend your free time. How you choose to recreate says a lot about a human being. What I am offering you is the open Ocean, fishing, going to islands, breathing salty air at sea, breathing Yanmar diesel exhaust fumes, drinking rum, drinking whiskey, drinking cheap beer, drinking expensive beer, drinking the dead sea monkeys floating in the drink that your friend backwashed, spear fishing anything that moves, endless supply of gold colored fish to make into tacos, trapping crabs, getting crabs, attracting girls only interested in being on a yacht, a fist pumping teeth grinding laser eating dance platform, a new kitchen, a boom that might hit you in the head, a slip fee, the ability to t-bone a stand up paddle boarder, the ability to bbq a t-bone steak, the ability to bone in the v-birth, the chance to see whales, the improved chance to bring a whale out of a dive bar and tying knots. These are fine things. These are gentlemanly things. They certainly beat sitting in car traffic towing your sand rail or three wheeler past a bunch of meth labs to the boat launch.

Fast Transport

This boat travels as fast as your luxury car on Hwy 1 on Friday at rush hour – 8 knots at best. And you spent over $190K. Way more than a domestic car just because of the cool logo, neat ads and foreignness of it. Not to mention the way it makes you feel when you look at it after you park it. You could have got a Ford, a 3 wheeler, a sand rail and this boat for the same price. Enough said.

360 Degree Ocean View and the Mexican Navy

Always wanted an ocean view? See above description of how lucky you are. This boat comes with an ocean view of your damn choosing! Imagine a house that could do that. Those creepy realtor types would be drooling all the way to the bank. (Please no inquiries if your picture is on your business card). For the price of a ocean front strand house you could buy a boat like this every month of the year. In fact for $3,000,000 (reasonable price for a strand house) you could buy 18 boats like this. That’s more than the entire navy of Mexico (because they don’t use sailboats).

What would you do with that many boats? You could keep them all in different marinas so your wife doesn’t find out about all the other girlfriends that are now living on your boat….that’s right, if you factor in that each boat should yield approximately 10 different girlfriends and you want to spend about 1-2 days with each girl every month then this is the boat for you. Everyone would be happy because the kids could again dress up, beam each other with volleyballs and drink booze in the open sun on a WEEKEND. You would be the damn Kevin Bacon of the beach area. People would make movies of how you returned the joy to such an under privileged area of Marathon Florida.

Screen World or Water World?

Each day the average person spends ?? hours staring at a computer screen, ?? watching a television screen, and ?? hours looking at a smart phone screen. (You do the math). The hope is that eventually there will be enough devices “invented” whereby 24 hours of your day is spent looking at a radiation emitting electronic display screens. These devices with clever names starting with i will range in size to span every increment of that Home Depot tape measure you never use. This will be toped by the inevitable invention of a gigantic screen that allows up to three people to be imbedded in, is only 2 microns thick, is named after a fruit and hurtles through outer space endlessly. I have good news for you my screen collecting swollen eyeball friend. This boat comes with an lcd tv screen and there is cell service all the way to Key West! So you don’t have to skip the transvestite pirate thong dress up wine mixer at Fantasy Fest because you are worried about missing all those great things happening on social media and on dvd. Why not sit on a sailboat and stare at your cell phone?

Attention Doomsday Preppers
If you are a doomsday prepper then you have just hit the Powerball lottery scratch off confetti falls out of the sky jackpot. Feel free to go into one of those evangelist religious on stage convulsions right now because when shit hits the fan (and it will) do you want to be on the roof of your liquor store with a high powered riffle or in the open ocean reading Moby Dick with a milky rum drink in your skilled knot tying hands surrounded by 20 beautiful girls you rescued from certain death (Please note, USCG regulations do not specifically allow you to transport 20 people….but it is the end of the world and at this point they have bigger fish to fry)?

In Summary
This boat is cheap, it gives you access to buffaloes milk, it is more fun than your current hobbies, it is fast enough, it has an ocean view, it comes with a TV, comes with everything you need and it might be helpful in case of a disaster. Most importantly it puts you in command of a ship. Go ahead break a bottle of Champagne over the bow, leave your mall things on land and grab someone you like to bring along.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Hunter 40.5 was conceived as a comfortable cruising boat, and as in all Legend Series boats, a tough competitor too. She blends comfort, performance, and shorthanded sailing capabilities all in one package. Her powerful rig, swept back spreaders, and large mainsail enhance her performance, while the bulb-wing keel keeps her stable and shallow in draft. Special touches like a small furling headsail, single-line reefing, and sail flaking, make cruising the 40.5 so enjoyable. A wide-open cockpit, complete with table keep you comfortable in a seaway or on the hook. Down below, there is an incredible salon finished in rich fabrics, hand-rubbed teak and Corian counters. The L-shaped galley is truly workable including a dual-opening refrigerator and freezer, stove with oven, and even a dish rack complete with dishes. Accommodations are sumptuous and can handle a crew of six and even eight with the optional tri-cabin version. The Hunter 40.5 boasts 17 opening ports and enough dry storage to comfortably live aboard. From the innovative walk-through transom to the stainless anchor roller, no one provides a better-equipped or a more value-oriented, comfortable cruiser than the Hunter 40.5.
