About this Hunter 44 DS

Price Drop.. Owner Says Bring Offers!The Hunter 44 Deck Salon is an innovative cruiser with a performance orientated hull drawn by Hunter’s Chief Designer,noted designer and racer, Glenn Henderson. The 44 carries the beam well aft, but the additional beam does not hinder performance or sea keeping ability, it actually enhances it. Wide windows and ports offer a real panorama and the creative layout allows for two full staterooms with two full heads with separate stall showers. Continuing to innovate and go more upscale, this Hunter offers amenities such as flat-screen televisions and Polk Audio systems. Galley appliances are stainless steel and surrounded by genuine Corian countertops. Foam  mattresses are in both spacious staterooms.

Seneca Blues has all the options you'll want.  Genset, AC/Heat and Bow Thruster top the list.  You'll find an extensive detailed list of all the upgrades and maintenance items.  It demonstrates the care and feeding this boat has had over the years.
