The Hunter 240 is an American made trailerable sailboat designed by Hunter and first built in 1998. This popular boat is easy to set up, fun to sail, and a breeze to put back on the trailer. The boat has a family size cockpit with “captains chairs” built into the stern pulpits on port and starboard sides. Because of the water ballast design, you leave the ballast water, 1,300 lbs, on the boat ramp when it’s time to go home. As with other Hunter trailer-sailers, the 240 has an innovative mast-raising system which incorporates steel supports on each side of the mast. This makes rigging relatively fast and easy. A custom trailer that fits the boat eliminates most of the hassle of launching at a ramp. A movable table can be set up in the cockpit or the cabin. All Hunters are very well supported at Hunter.sailboatowners.Com.
The boat has been stored outdoors, is dirty and has not been used in over four years. However, this is a relatively late model boat and fortunately fiberglass and stainless steel withstand the outdoor elements very well. The standing rigging, decks, and hull are in very good condition, due mostly to the very dry climate of north Texas.
