    Brokers Comments

    Designed by Glenn Henderson, this innovative cruiser handles easily for single handed sailing and has exellent sailing performance on blue water.  She is also equally suitable as a day sailor, long passage maker or live-a-board.  Shea has in mast roller furling, main roller furling headsail and all lines lead aft to the cockpit.  This Hunter, like the successful 356 model, features the performance oriented hull and carries the beam well aft without hindering the performance or seakeeping ability.  Her creative layout allows for two full staterooms with two full heads and separate shower stalls.
