The Hunter's deck has nice, crisp lines. The potpourri of window shapes and orientations is strictly Euro in origin and creates some aesthetic excitement. The moderately high freeboard of this design goes well with the short ends; the result being a businesslike look that, may be called handsome.
This hull shape once again pushes the beam toward the stern for additional interior volume. The deck plan shows a fine bow with beam max well aft. This is not a skinny boat. The midsection shows a shape that goes tangent or flat at centerline with a moderate BWL. The hull profile uses about all the waterline it can squeeze out of 40 feet with very short ends. The keel is a bulb cumwing type for shoal draft and stability.
