“S/V Seannsail”  – CLEAN & READY! provides spacious accommodations within a compact framework, all at an exceptional value. Among the array of 28 to 30 foot boats available, few can rival the interior volume of the Hunter 280, combined with a generously sized cockpit that comfortably seats up to 8 individuals. The stern rail seats provided by Hunter offer a secure and fantastic vantage point for guests to relax and enjoy the journey while the walk-through transom makes boarding a breeze with pets or provisions.

Enhancing the sailing experience is the B&R rig complemented by a classic mainsail, resulting in spirited and efficient performance, attributed to the fin keel and the taller mast with a higher aspect ratio. Streamlined for the convenience of a small crew, all lines are tactically led aft to the cockpit.

The interior of the Hunter 280 presents luxuries often absent in larger vessels, encompassing a huge aft berth, a standing head equipped with a shower, and ample amounts of storage compartments. Hatches and portlights facilitate exceptional below-deck ventilation.
