The Hunter 430 "FIDDLER" is by far the cleanest, most well equipped Hunter on the Texas Coast. She has been lovingly cared for by her ONLY owners that are moving out of state. Numerous upgrades, extensive equipment list including life raft, dinghy, never used spinnaker, In-boom furling, full electronics, generator and the list goes on.
She is powered by a 50 HP Volvo diesel engine with 400 hours. The generator is a Kohler 8KW with remote panel and 205 hours. New AGM D8 house batteries (2012). Two AC units.
This well laid out plan is great for living aboard and ready for immediate cruising. She is a performance cruiser designed for ease in sailing yet safe at sea. See full specs for complete detail.
