The Hunter Design Group incorporated a powerful fractional B&R rig, with a modern underbody, resulting in a racer/cruiser with a fin keel and spade rudder that points, is easily driven and easy to handle in close quarters. She is powered by a fresh water cooled Yanmar diesel. Her interior utilizes a modern open layout forward with a huge U-shaped settee/dinette forward berth--there's no forward bulkhead to reduce the airiness of the salon!
The 28.5 one has everything you'd want even on a bigger boat--wheel steering, fresh water cooled Yanmar diesel engine, pressurized water, sleeps 4-6, plus is easy to handle and maintain. In addition, this particular example has newer electronics and a nice dodger, and shows well; she's also VERY competitively priced and will make a very nice first or reentry boat.
Open forepeak with triangle shaped berth forward followed immediately by HUGE U-shaped settee with double drop leaf table centerline. Next aft port side is small L-shaped counter with stainless steel sink, nav table across to starboard.
Far aft port side is private stateroom tucked under the cockpit with double berth, centerline companionway then head aft starboard.
Note that the interior is designed to maximize functionality and sense of spaciousness and really must be seen to appreciate how well it works!
