If the clock could be turned back, would owner buy again? no!  
Gear that's been added the boat is loaded.  
Structural or complex improvements  
The boat's best features sails well  
Problem areas in terms of design, materials, maintenance, etc. leaks, poor construction factory and dealer do not communicate.  
Sailing characterisitcs sails okay  
Motoring characterisitcs motors okay  
Liveability not enough storage  
The owner's experience in dealing with Hunter (if any) i called customer service once they were helpful but they cannot make miracles happen.  
The owner's experience with the boat dealer or broker, if any the process has been painfull, iresearched this boat for two years, and still made the wrong decision.  
Other comments if this is the best production boat in america, i might as well take up GOLF
