Hunter Legend 44 DS from 2004 which is the owners version with two spacious staterooms with their own facilities. She is fully equipped for ocean cruising boat that has been in the same ownership since new. She has self sufficiency afloat due to her generator, wind generator, solar panels and water maker. A well maintained version of this comfortable cruising yacht which is available now.
The Hunter 44 deck saloon is an excellent liveaboard cruising yacht. . She is currently afloat in Cartagena Spain, having returned from 10 years in the Caribbean last year.
Designed by Glen Henderson the Hunter 44DS is a moderate displacement blue water cruising yacht. Her long waterline length and volume allow speed and excellent interior and exterior space that would normally only be possible on larger vessels.
The design incorporates a large aft cockpit and the 'deck saloon' facilitates an exceptionally light and airy saloon with a raised floor level that offers plenty of storage for water tanks, holding tanks and even a water maker, which helps give a low centre of gravity.
Under power the Hunter 44DS offers economical quiet cruising, approximately 3 litres per hour, with a max speed of 8 knots at 2500 rpm.
Our Hunter 44DS (Owners version) has been extensively upgraded and cared for by my husband and I since new. She really can match your ideas and lifestyle no matter whether your interest is in a blue-water long range passage maker or just a yacht to live aboard and potter at weekends.
Chaser is a cruisers dream come true. First of all she has a large aft cockpit that can be enclosed in winter climes but also caters comfortably for us and our family for al fresco dining during the hot weather. The saloon (rarely used for dining) is huge with more than 7ft headroom and can also sleep 3 people by lowering the saloon table creating an enormous double berth and the 3rd person on the starboard side settee. The saloon table is extendable to maximise the number of diners. There are book shelves and cupboards either side of the saloon and a 32 inch flat screen TV on the forward bulkhead.
The aft stateroom is the owners version thereby taking the full width of the stern. The centerline queen size double berth has a proper very comfortable spring interior mattress,.
