The Marlow-Hunter 40 standard two-suite layout offers much of the privacy for two couples of a center-cockpit
cruiser, separating staterooms, each with private head and shower, at opposite ends of the boat. Whether racing,
daysailing or cruising, the vast majority of time aboard is spent in the cockpit. Accordingly, Marlow Hunter provides
easy movement from the cabin or side decks into the cockpit, with the mainsail traveler overhead and jib winches
aft, well out of the way. Ample cockpit seating flows around a wedge-shaped folding table, which is fitted with grab
rails. The walkway between the pair of steering wheels provides equally unhindered access to the transom gate,
which folds down to become a boarding platform. Two additional seats built into the stern rail provide elevated
perches. Down below, large fixed side windows and two overhead opening hatches let in plenty of day-light and
fresh air. Overhead lights provide a bright cabin at night. Probably the second-most important spot on the boat
(after the cockpit), in terms of practical use, is the galley. The Marlow-Hunter 40 L-shaped galley includes plenty of
counter space with a double-bowl stainless steel sink mounted to Corian counters. A trash bin sits beneath the
counter to the right of the sink in what would otherwise be an unusable cabinet corner. Stainless steel grab rails
extend the entire length of the galley, both providing a steady handhold and keeping items on the countertops while
heeling. Hunter includes a microwave and propane gimbaled two-burner stove with oven, also there is a 12-volt DC
front-loading refrigerator and 12vdc freezer. There is lighted storage cabinets outboard of galley counters.
Additional cabinets and lots of drawers accommodate all the necessities for a well-fed crew.
A 40-foot, aft-cockpit cruising sailboat is a hard length to get right. Expectations are for a lively performer that is
easy to handle with just a husband and wife, while also offering comfortable accommodations for two additional
guests. The Marlow-Hunter 40 hull design and B&R rig’s large main and small jib meet those expectations.
Performance definitely favors the self-flaking battened mainsail rather than the furling main, but even with the
furling capability in the mast, Hunter steps up with a vertical batten solution. A large galley and two full heads with
workable showers (as opposed to the ubiquitous 270 degree pull-around shower curtain) is a bit of a feat, and the
boat carries a spacious aft cabin, separating owners from guests without sacrificing space in the cockpit and salon.
Sure, the low overhead above the aft bed isn’t for everyone, but it’s certainly a small compromise given the boat’s
well balanced cruising and sailing attributes.
