When the Hunter 34 was introduced in late 1982, it was the second of the "modern" generation of Hunters. The Hunter 34 is a fast boat, particularly in light air. This is due almost entirely to her huge rig, which towers over 51' above the waterline. Owners report that in winds of from seven to 12 knots, the boat is practically unbeatable in club racing. The typical PHRF rating of 135 for the deep keel boat is faster than most other cruiser/racers of her size.
Most Hunter 34s are equipped with the Yanmar 3GM, a three-cylinder, fresh water cooled diesel that puts out about 22.5 hp. This is an excellent engine, The Hunter 34 was one of the first boats under 35' to offer a tri-cabin layout, and this interior design is frequently cited as a primary reason for buying the boat. Now, of course, it is common for boats this size to have three cabins. As you would expect on a boat this size, the aft cabin is pretty small, with a limited standing area. Despite the fact that the double berth is mostly under the cockpit, there is adequate headroom over it due to the fact that the cockpit is quite shallow.
The privacy of the tri-cabin layout is very important for a family with children, or owners that like to cruise with another couple. The single fixed berth in the main cabin means that the boat will sleep only five without making up the dinette. "Only" five is a pretty good number in a boat this size, and the most important thing is that it sleeps five in a reasonable level of comfort. All in all, the interior of the Hunter 34 is well thought out and livable. She was used as a liveaboard and was adequate for the couple that was onboard her for almost 3 years.
Overall the deck, hull, and standing rigging appear in very good condition, the running rigging could use some updating. The main sail has some staining and has had some use, the jib has just been gone over and is clean as a whistle. I'm sure anyone would be proud to be on the water with this Beautiful boat!!
The interior is in pretty good shape she has a couple of minor things that need to be addressed, but they are all consistent with a boat of this age, overall I would say and the owner relays that she is in pretty good shape. There is a small electric Refer has been put on the galley counter top and is included. This is a great boat for the size and value.
