Hunter 25.5, 1984, Ultimate Pocket Cruiser

This is not a typical Hunter 25.5, it's been refitted for world cruising and owned for the past 20 years by the founder of Solar Stik, Inc. (a marine and military power company).

SPECS:

  • Make: Hunter
  • Model: 255
  • Year: 1984
  • LOA: 26'
  • Beam: 9' 3"
  • Draft: 4'
  • Mast Height: 34' from water
  • Tonnage: 5500 lbs
  • Cruising speed - sail: 6 knts
  • Motoring speed: 6.5 knts

    Empty Pocket has been continually refined for nearly 20 years, using two reference points:

  • 1.) The experiences of full-time cruising
  • 2.) The goal of being as self-sufficient as technology and design will allow

    She is built to be as "Maintenance-Free" as is possible while underway, but also provide the comforts and amenities normally found on 45' yachts. Empty Pocket is a much easier boat to handle, maintain, and cruise, at a fraction of the cost of a similarly-equipped larger vessel.

    Thoughtful design, practical implementation, and meticulous maintenance is applied to every component, from her major onboard systems right down to the hand-held devices that were selected as part of her inventory. Empty Pocket is so complete that she could "leave the dock tomorrow" for a year-long cruise.

  • She is professionally maintained every week and her critical gear is up-to-date.
