31' Hunter 31 '84 "Justine"

Description of this vessel as written by the owner: "As you board the Hunter 31, you can easily see why this boat is special. The Hunter 31 is a perfect entry level daysailer/coastal cruiser that is easy to sail and she provides a big boat feel in the interior. Spacious with 6’3” headroom.  The foredeck is uncluttered, and both the standing and running rigging are in excellent condition. The cockpit is large and roomy with self-tailing winches in the right places, lots of storage and perfectly proportioned pedestal steering. The B&G instruments are easily readable, and all lines are led aft for ease of sail trim.

The masthead rig features swept spreaders. The deck is uncluttered, except for lifelines, genoa track and shrouds, the latter attached nearer the coach roof than to the outside rail. The shroud placement allows crew to move more easily fore and aft for sail changes or foredeck work. The lifeline stanchions are mounted outboard, creating additional room on deck. The cockpit lockers are large enough to stow all sails and other equipment. 

The galley has a three-burner stove (non-gimbled),  sink and an icebox. It is abutted by a dinette that seats four. The port side features a settee and full navigation station with chart table and red and white light. Plentiful windows provide light and cross ventilation. The boat carries 35 gallons of water. 

The hull was laid in 1984 and were fitted with a 13-horsepower, freshwater-cooled, Yanmar diesel. Justine can make 6 knots in a calm to slight chop, running at 2,900 RPM. 

The boat performs nicely on its mainsail, but once the wind exceeds 20 knots, one or two reefs are highly advised. It tracks admirably once in the groove but can be slow to heel and may round up in a heavy gust. A broad reach is not its fastest point of sail."
