Accessing the Hunter 450 Passage at the stern from the dock or dinghy is made easy by the built-in steps leading to the spacious aft deck and the roomy center cockpit.
The quasi-spiral stairs lead from the center cockpit into the light and airy salon. The wraparound windows, ports and hatches bring tons of light and fresh air into the main salon, making the space feel even larger. The salon headroom is over 7’ 0” and is sufficient for anyone. To the port side of the salon are a built-in settee with a fold down console and aft of the stairs, an well laid out U-shaped galley.
To starboard, a six-person dinette, the navigation station and the master head lead you back to the master stateroom.
In the spacious master stateroom, there is a comfortable queen-size bed with a memory gel foam mattress, plus the separate bathtub/ shower. The beautiful master stateroom cabinetry houses a washer/dryer combo, ample storage and lockers. The ensuite master head is a split arrangement with the vanity and toilet to starboard and separate from the shower/ bathtub on the port side of the stateroom.
The guest stateroom is forward of the salon and features its own over and under berths and ensuite head in the bow.
GALLEY: The U-shaped galley is laid out just aft and to port of the companionway staircase. It features a 3 burner Force 10 propane stove and oven. The Isotherm refrigeration and freezer storage is ample and keeps ice cream frozen. The galley also has a stainless steel double sink and there is lots of storage space for food, kitchenware and dishes.
FORWARD STATEROOM: Forward of the Salon is the guest stateroom with its separate head and shower in the vee of the boat. The Hunter 450 has plenty of storage throughout. The bottom berth of the over and under berths is a double berth and the single berth above is done in a Pullman style. There are two lockers as well as storage under the berth. The marine head is a VacuFlush unit. There are three overhead hatches in the forward stateroom and head. Under the vanity and sink are battery switches for the anchor windlass and bow thruster.
SALON: The beautiful salon has a dining table with an L-shaped settee to starboard and a straight settee with a fold down console for drinks to port. Just forward of the port settee is the entertainment center with a flat screen Samsung television.
The wraparound windows, seven opening ports and two overhead hatches let the light and air pour into the boat. Under the dining settee is an oversized 33 GPH Sea Recovery watermaker. Again, there is a plethora of storage under the settees and floor.
NAVIGATION STATION: The forward facing navigation station located aft and to starboard of the main salon. In addition to the chart table and curved wood seat, the nav station has a VHF radio, tank monitoring system and controls for the Xantrex Freedom inverter and the 900 watt solar panel system.
MASTER STATEROOM: Continuing aft from the nav station is the hall leading to the master head and stateroom. The head features a vanity with more storage and a VacuFlush toilet. Into the Master Stateroom, there is storage with an LG Direct Drive washer/ dryer combo in the port side cabinetry, a queen-sized bed with memory foam mattress and tons of storage drawers and lockers. On the port side of the stateroom is the separate shower and sit down bathtub. A 32” flat screen TV is on the forward wall of the room for easy viewing from the L-shaped settee or while in bed!
DECK and HULL: This paragraph from CRUISING WORLD describes the build process of the Hunter 450 Passage. “Hull construction features hand-laid fiberglass with polyester and vinylester resins. Baltek end-grain balsa core is applied above the waterline for reduced weight and stiffer sections; the deck is cored with marine plywood. The sump is reinforced to accept loads associated with the keel, which is a cast-lead bulb wing externally affixed with seven 1-inch stainless steel keel bolts. A structural grid built into the hull is overglassed so that the entire underbody essentially is wrapped, which distributes loads and contributes to the vessel’s monocoque integrity. Molded liners are used to accept bulkheads and interior architecture, and these are bonded to the inner skins. Hunter’s very active efforts to improve the quality of the company’s earlier boats has resulted in upscaled construction standards worthy of Community of Europe (CE) certification for "unlimited offshore use," a laudable vote of confidence.”
Starting at the bow is the double anchor roller and chain locker. The Lawrence Simpson Horizon 1500 windlass is housing below deck in the locker along with 300’ of the chain for the main anchor and the spare anchor and its rope. A fresh water wash down faucet is located in the locker also.
The spacious side decks allow easy movement from cockpit to foredeck and back. The deck stepped, Hunter developed B & R rig features an in-mast furling mainsail with boom vang and no backstays. The center cockpit has a full navy blue enclosure with roll up panels to keep nasty weather out. The large cockpit and its settees lend themselves to lazy afternoon naps. The Whitlock helm with its Navpod GP series instrument pod houses the Raymarine eSeries Hybrid Touch radar/ plotter, Suunto compass, VHF radio, bow thruster and windlass controls. There is a fold down cockpit table forward of the helm for dining in the cockpit. Above the companionway steps are the three Raymarine ST60 sailing instruments. To port of the helm are the engine instruments for the Yanmar diesel. There are four Lewmar (2-48’s and 2-44’s) manual winches in the cockpit for sail handling.
Aft of the cockpit is the aft deck, a great lounging area. The stairs lead down from the aft deck to the swim platform and electric dinghy davits. There are two large lazzerette lockers on either side of the stairs for storing items. The electric motors for the davits are also in these lockers.
