The 31 is a comfortable, speedy, mid-size cruiser that takes advantage of all the latest advances in sailing components and technologies. The 31 replaced the popular 306 in the Hunter product line. The Hunter design team, led by Glenn Henderson, developed a totally new boat from the hull up, and took advantage of all the newest "marinized" components such as water heaters, AC units, inverters and refrigeration systems. These smaller, stronger and lighter parts helped engineers build a "comfort cruiser that goes fast." "We found the ideal position for weight balance and access for all the 31's advanced components to create a better center of buoyancy," said Henderson. "The result is a boat that is forgiving, well-rounded and has exceptional performance."Ergonomics and function were also carefully considered during the 31's design phase. Design engineers constructed a full-size mock-up of the interior and deck for analyzing functionality and user comfort during extensive operational and livability testing. Adjustments, sometimes only fractions of inches, were made to hardware, doors and bulkheads to achieve maximum usability and comfort. Maximum efficiency and comfort has been built into the interior of the 31. The forward cabin is larger than most boats in its class, which was achieved by adjusting the forward hull shape, without affecting performance. A private aft cabin is also provided, along with a fully enclosed head with vanity and shower. The standard galley has icebox, two-burner propane stove and stainless steel sink. Available options include a refrigerator and microwave. Water storage is a 50-gallon freshwater tank and five-gallon water heater. Designer fabrics are used throughout, and interior lines are clean and streamlined. An Everware laminate teak and holly cabin sole is back by popular request -- Auxiliary power is delivered by a Yanmar 21 HP diesel with 20 gallon tank.
Hunter's proven easy-to-sail B & R fractional rig system consists of a Selden anodized mast, with in mast furling sail has been designed to retain the sail area typically lost over a standard mainsail, and in fact has two more square feet than the 31's standard sail. Hunter's famous arch-mounted mainsheet traveler is an available option, along with a helm sheeting package that allows control of jib sheets from the back of the boat.
