The Hunter 410 is from the American boat builders, Marlow Hunter. The design was one of their first ocean cruising models and has stood the test of time remaining a popular choice for a good boat on a reasonable budget.
Malaika was bought by her current owner in the 2nd half of 2017 on the US east coast, with the intention of enjoying some long-distance cruising. She was already in good condition, with 2011 furling mainsail and genoa and a clean survey (available on request).
Since purchase, Malaika has been extensively maintained and improved making her completely blue water ready. She's had a full engine overhaul this year (2019) in preparation for her Pacific crossing as well as furler overhaul. Her recent equipment is:
- Parasailor (2019)
- Dingy and engine (2017)
- 2 x 350W solar panels (2018)
- Watermaker (2019)
- Iridium Go
- Full safety equipment incl life raft
She's just arrived in French Polynesia having sailed south to the Marquise and onwards to Tahiti during the 2019 season. This Hunter 410 represents excellent value for a blue water cruiser, comfortable and ready to sail.
