Manufacturer Provided Description

The new Hunter 38 replaces the popular 386, the last of which rolled out of the Florida plant May 27, 2004 following a highly successful seven year run. Hunters famed designer and racer Glenn Henderson returned to the drawing board with one focus in mind. Our goal was to design a boat that was an exceptionally comfortable cruiser, yet offered outstanding performance and easy handling, said Henderson. Our new 38 has met -- and exceeds -- expectations. The 38 is Hunters largest mid-size cruiser in its fleet. While Hunter is quick to acknowledge that the market is competitive in this class, the company believes it is a powerful niche and is confident its new boat will make waves due to its many innovations. In addition, the appearance of the boat itself offers a departure featuring red stripes, a red Hunter logo and linen bimini top.
