The Hunter 450 Passage is a self-sufficient Blue water cruiser with plenty of roominess and amenities. She's easy to handle and safe for a family or crew to run around the decks on, while under way. She's comfortable to be aboard, easy to handle, even single-handed, and has more than adequate tankage to make for a wonderful liveaboard if you're so inclined.
One bonus of this Hunter is that its current slip is transferable and very affordable for the sailor that wants to keep her in Southern California.
Stepping aboard this beautiful boat, one of the first things you'll notice is how open and clear the decks are from stays you must navigate around. Specifically, the backstay is missing. It's one of the unconventional traits given to the 450 Passage to make her more user-friendly. The owner made her even more user-friendly when the Custom canvas and eisenglass enclosure was designed for the cockpit.
Not only is it a room 6'-6" at the helm, but double windows were installed for great visibility at all times. What a wonderful addition. The aft deck is large, and the walk-on walk-off transom is equipped with deep lockers for aquatic toys and gear plus a freshwater shower. The dinghy hoist is oversized and built to allow for keeping the outboard attached to the dinghy while underway.
Not only is the cockpit suited for sailing in any weather, but she's well outfitted with a more than adequate electronics package. And, her rolling furler mainsail, roller furling jib, electronic winch and all lines leading to the well laid out rope clutches make sailing her a pleasure and a feat that can be accomplished single-handed if need be.
Stepping down into the very spacious cabin, you'll realize that the 6'-6" headroom is even more effective at helping you feel at home. To the port is the well-equipped galley with large fridge and separate freezer, as well as the Stove / Oven and Microwave. A dual stainless steel sink rounds out the galley to make meal prep a joy.
The salon has a 6 person dinette as well as the settee to make entertaining fun for the entire crew, and card nights can accommodate all your passengers. Forward in the bow is a guest stateroom with queen-size bed, and it's own private head with shower. A simple settee between the closets is for those times you'd like a bit of privacy to read a book.
Aft of the dinette is the Nav station that will accommodate all your charting needs. And behind that is the head for the master stateroom. The gorgeous master stateroom is a jewel aboard this Hunter with a full Queen-size bed, a lot of storage and closet space, a comfortable settee/vanity all your own and flat screen tv. With all these features, you may not want to leave. The private shower is a very nice feature as well.
The 75 HP Yanmar Diesel engine and Westerbeke Generator are housed under the stairwell and have excellent access to everything from the master stateroom, and the section under the Breaker panel. Easy access means better maintenance.
If you're in the market for this size and style of boat, you won't go wrong with this beautiful Hunter 450 Passage.
This Hunter is only a three owner boat and has been well cared for. She was last serviced in May of 2016 with not only an engine service and fluid change, but new motor mounts were installed, the bottom was painted, she had her stuffing box repacked, and the thru hulls were either replaced or renovated. As of January 2017, she has a new battery and a new alternator.
She's fully detailed annually to keep her looking in her best condition, and her windlass was just serviced. All maintenance records and logs are aboard. Pride of ownership shines through on this Hunter.
