Hunter 31 would make a terrific Southern California Live-Aboard. She comes with a transferable slip ( per month) at a world class marina with ample amenities!


As you board the Hunter 31, you can easily see why this boat is special. The foredeck is uncluttered, and both the standing and running rigging are in excellent condition. The cockpit is large and roomy with self-tailing winches in the right places, lots of storage and perfectly proportioned pedestal steering. The BG instruments are easily readable in direct sunlight, and all lines are led aft for ease of sail trim.

The mast head rig features swept spreaders. The deck is uncluttered, except for lifelines, genoa track and shrouds, the latter attached nearer the coachroof than to the outside rail. The shroud placement allows crew to move more easily fore and aft for sail changes or foredeck work. The lifeline stanchions are mounted outboard, creating additional room on deck. The cockpit lockers are large enough to stow all sails and other equipment.
There’s a big-boat feel once you go below. Headroom is 6 feet 3 inches in the spacious saloon, but the V-berth is tight for two adults. The head with sink and toilet is just outside the V-berth and fitted with a privacy door.
The overall layout is social, with a U-shaped galley to starboard that allows the cook to converse or otherwise take part in the goings on. The galley has a two-burner stove (build to suit), sink and an icebox. It is abutted by a dinette that seats four. The port side features a settee and full navigation station with chart table and light. Plentiful windows provide light and cross ventilation. The boat carries 35 gallons of water.

The hull was laid in 1984 and were fitted with a 13-horsepower, freshwater-cooled, Yanmar diesel. Later boats were beefed up with a 16-horsepower engine. Panels allow for good engine access. The boat carries 18 gallons of fuel.

The boat performs nicely on its mainsail, but once the wind exceeds 20 knots, one or two reefs are highly advised. It tracks admirably once in the groove but can be slow to heel and may round up in a heavy gust. A broad reach is not its fastest point of sail. Although the original sales brochure described the Hunter 31 as a bluewater boat, it seems more suited as a coastal cruiser.
