Overview

Hunter's 37.5 is one of the most comfortable and well rounded designs in the Hunter line of coastal cruising yachts. Every aspect of the yacht is efficiently designed to maximize space, comfort, storage and functionality.

Her shoal draft bulb-wing keel has a draft of only 4'11". Her generous sail plan is easy to handle and provides quick and spirited acceleration in all wind conditions. A Dutchman mainsail flaking system makes the job of stowing the main as simple as releasing the halyard. Hunter designed these boats to be easy to maintain, comfortable, capable and fun to sail. It is no wonder these were such popular designs, Hunter hit their target with the Legend 37.5,
