One of the newer generation Glenn Henderson designs, the Hunter 426/44DS is arguably the best sailing boat Hunter has built. She is a big boat that is fast and can handle the toughest of sea conditions. The hull has performed so well it is used in the new Hunter 45 Deck Salon and the 45 Center Cockpit. This Deck Salon version offers a dramatically large interior space with the raised deck allowing tremendous light in the boat and 6’8″ of headroom

The boat is very well equipped with Air Conditioning, In-Mast Furling, Shade/Hatch Package, ST 6001 Auto Pilot, Anchor Windlass and lots of extra options (See full specs for detailed listing). Here is a Hunter 426DS/44 not only with low hours, but she was brought to Florida from the Kentucky Lakes where she was home ported most of her life. Make an appointment to view this excellent, very capable vessel.

Some personal items will be excluded from sale. All offers will be presented.
