2005 Hunter 44 Deck Salon “ONE TIME”
This is one of the nicest used sailboats I have ever had the privilege to list. You won’t be disappointed in this one. If you’re in the market for a great cruising or live aboard sailboat, please come see this Hunter 44 Deck Salon.
The Hunter 44 DS is an exceptional cruiser with all the right amenities for weekend or extended cruising. ONE TIME is in beautiful condition and has been continually maintained by her fastidious owner. Absolutely no disappointments, super clean and still has the new boat smell.
Above decks the 44 Deck Salon was designed to offer easy in handling and easy in sailing. The cockpit features high coamings for comfortable seating under sail or dockside and a walk-thru transom for easy access to the dinghy davits and stern ladder. All lines lead aft to coach roof mounted sheet stoppers and self-tailing winches. The main sheet and main halyard winch are electric. The genoa sheet winches are mounted aft next to the helm. The mainsheet traveler control lines are mounted off the arch for quick release and adjustment. All the lines are within easy reach of the helm for safe passage or single-handed sailing. The custom Bimini, connector and dodger provide excellent protection from the elements. The Bimini sitting window gives easy view of the main and masthead. Wide side decks and well-placed handrails allow for safe easy passage while docking and anchoring. The electric anchor windlass and double anchor roller make anchoring a snap.
Below decks the 44 Deck Salon maximizes crew comfort. The raised deck salon coach roof affords oversized forward and side windows providing abundant natural light and tremendous ventilation creating a very open and airy feeling. The main salon features a large dinette to port and a long bench settee to starboard. Both settees with convert to sleeping berths. Just aft of the starboard settee is the full navigation station with navigation desk and forward-facing captain's bench which is perfect for trip planning or working in your office. The full cruising galley is to port and offers all the amenities for the cruising gourmet with solid surface counter tops, separate refrigerator and freezer, propane stove and oven and loads of storage and food preparation space.
The 44 Deck Salon features two private cabins. The guest cabin is forward and has an oversized double "V" style berth, hanging locker, under berth storage and access to the forward head. A large opening hatch provides natural light and ventilation. The owner's cabin is aft and features a large double centerline berth, settee, hanging and storage lockers and private access to the aft head.
Under sail the 44 Deck Salon has few equals. The boat was drawn by noted designer Glenn Henderson and offers some rather intricate features not usually found on cruising boats of this size. First, is the “Bow Hollow", which increases the flow of water in the forward sections and increases hull speed. Second, is a "Stern Reflex", which allows a flatter exit wake and less turbulence. This also increases performance. Hunter has incorporated some extraordinary features into cruising boats to enhance their performance without sacrificing comfort and the ease of sailing.
The interior is amazing with an open and airy feel. There are beautiful miniblinds on larger windows and Ocean Aire screen and solid covers for each overhead hatch. Every port hole has screens. The teak and holly sole and beautiful matching upholstery make the Hunter 44 Deck Salon a true beauty.
You enter the cockpit by way of either the port or starboard boarding gates or directly through the walk-through transom. The cockpit is large and features port and starboard seating with beautiful blue Sunbrella cushions. There are port and starboard raised stern seats on the aft rail with teak seats and blue Sunbrella cushions. To assist in underway viewing the owner has manufactured a custom elevated helm seat which can be disassembled and stored when not in use. The cockpit is protected with a dark blue Sunbrella bimini, connector and dodger. There is a Textalene screen full cockpit enclosure. The side deck is easily maneuvered with easy access forward and stainless-steel handrails, high stanchions with double coated lifelines and access to the anchor locker. In the transom are storage lockers and the propane locker. Under the cockpit seating on the port side is another large storage locker. The cockpit offers fold up port and starboard tables for outside relaxation or dining. There is a transom hot and cold water shower.
Entering the main cabin is forward with a huge sliding overhead hatch and folding doors. The entry is unlike most sailboats as it features nice gentle slopped teak treads. The entry is similar to home steps. Once inside the main cabin the enormity of the 44 Deck Salon is apparent. Under the companionway steps is access to the engine compartment.
Once down the companionway steps you enter the interior. Huge 6’6” headroom, salon sky lights, large windows and ports, beautiful teak and holly sole and interior fabrics, the 44 Deck Salon feels like a much larger sailboat. Working from the forward cabin aft, here is the layout plan.
The master stateroom entry is starboard and aft with a private entry to the head just inside the cabin door. Stepping down into the master cabin, there is a slightly offset centerline queen island berth with a padded headboard. On the starboard side of the cabin is a large cedar lined hanging locker with a fiddled shelf above. Aft of that is a deep nightstand. A fiddled shelf runs the length of the berth along the hull and has areas storage beneath it. On the port side, there is another cedar lined hanging locker, a wide changing seat with storage beneath it and a recessed bookshelf with adjustable shelves. Across from the foot of the berth is a solid surface countertop with an arched mirrored-door locker with an adjustable shelf and 3 dressing lights above it. There is additional storage beneath the berth. Behind the countertop and cabinet is access to the transmission and aft engine.
There are four opening ports, one fixed port and an opening hatch for lighting and ventilation. Additionally, there are reading lights at the head of the bed and one in the seating area, three lights above the vanity space and two overhead lights. Headroom is Excellent at 7'2" at the entry and 32" of space above the mattress to the cockpit insert.
The L-shaped galley is at the base of the companionway on the port side. Wrap-around solid surface counter tops have tall sculpted and radiused hand holds for safety. The deep double stainless-steel sinks are oriented toward centerline and face forward. There is a splash back guard protecting the salon seats. Below the sink is a double storage cabinet and to the right is a large upright refrigerator. Outboard of the sink is a below-counter trash bin with an additional storage shelf behind the trash bin. Moving around along the port side is a pull-out 3-tiered wire shelving unit. All the way aft is the Force 10 stove and the front opening freezer. Beneath the stove and freezer are storage drawers. Above that counter along the hull are the microwave cabinet and a large drop front storage locker and forward of that a glass double door dish storage area. A fiddled shelf runs continuously above all of that along the hull. At the aft end above the counter is a 3-tiered spice rack. Between the counter and the companionway is a tall pantry unit, with arched double doors, adjustable shelves and organizers. Additionally, there are 3 drawers below that. Galley head room is 6'10".
The helm has all electronics and controls within easy reach.
The electrical panel is located at the navigation station. Most switches and monitors are at the navigation station as well.
