Review of the 2014 Marlow Hunter 40

Mike’s Review: 2014 Marlow Hunter 40

Norton’s Yacht Sales

The Marlow-Hunter 40 was  introduced at the 2012 Annapolis Boat Show, and it’s been quite popular for Marlow-Hunter already. The Marlow-Hunter 40 comes with Dual Helm Steering and the famous Stern Rail seats with stainless steel cupholders, making these seats prime location while out cruising. There’s plenty of room to move about in the cockpit, and also a flip-out table for entertaining friends and family. The teak fold-down transom opens up the cockpit even more, creating a swim platform where the kids can jump in the Bay, or you can sit and relax with your feet in the water.

You’ll find that this boat is easy to sail with the B&R Rig made famous by Hunter in the 1980s, and the Hard-Chine Hull makes for better performance and more room below.
