Designed by the Hunter Design Team and produced by using the patented Advanced Composite Process, the Hunter 170 is the ultimate daysailer. Seating for six is no problem with the wide open and uncluttered cockpit. The open transom allows great access for swimming or boarding, and there is even a dual access storage area forward to store provisions. A wide beam will maintain stability while the hull design will perform on all points of sail. Beginners or seasoned sailors alike will appreciate the simplified rig with a large main and small jib. A kick-up centerboard and swing-up rudder makes beaching or landing a snap. Durability and safety are a priority. This craft is constructed through the Advanced Composite Process, which integrates ABS plastic, high density foam, and stitch bi-directional cloth into a tough, unsinkable hull which is far more impact-resistant than traditional fiberglass. Top-name hardware and sails complete this package into a great family daysailer. The Hunter Marine Corporation was founded in 1973 to build truly affordable sailboats. Warren Luhrs, Hunter's chairman, has personally logged thousands of ocean miles both single-handedly and shorthanded aboard his ocean racers. From these floating laboratories hundreds of new ideas have been born. The same B & R rig that powered his boats into the record books also power the Hunter fleet. A lot has changed over the years, but Hunter Marine continues its commitment of bringing the sailing public the best performing and most accommodating sailboats at a reasonable price.
