Hunter's Legend Series has a great reputation for styling, performance and rugged construction.  From the spacious cockpit to her bright open interior, this yacht exemplifies what Hunter Marine is famous for. 

Above deck, her powerful rig, swept back spreaders and large mainsail enhance her performance, while the bulb-wing keel keeps her stable and shallow in draft. The fractional headsail, single line reefing and Dutchman sail flaking system make sail handling a breeze.

The cockpit is large and great for entertaining, with lots of seating space, comfortable high backs to the coamings, well-laid-out and organized. Stern rail seats and a large cockpit table add to the environment. The walk-through transom provides easy access for swimming and to your dinghy. 

Below decks, the two staterooms and heads make having another couple along fun and provide enough privacy for everyone to feel comfortable. Reverse-cycle air conditioning and heat keeps dockside living comfortable and the huge dinette will seat six to eight people with ease. The galley has great counter space, storage and has top and front-loading refrigerator access and a top-loading freezer.  

Design innovation and structural engineering are the cornerstones of the Hunter 40.5. Coupled with an unparalleled list of standard features and an extensive list of optional equipment, they created a comfortable, luxurious and exciting family-oriented cruiser.

“Bodacious” is a one owner boat and has served her owners well. Their plans have changed and now she is offered for sale. If you are looking for a great cruiser that is easy to sail, “Bodacious” is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. Call and make an appointment to come see her now!


Forward stateroom:  As you enter the forward stateroom, there is a cedar lined hanging on starboard with a fiddled shelf above it. Forward of that is a changing seat, which has a shelf storage space beneath it. The berth measures 6’4” x 18” x 60” and has four drawers, two cubbies and storage beneath it. There is an overhead hatch, a fan, one overhead and two reading lights. Headroom is 6’.


Forward Head: The ensuite forward head is on port and has 6’ headroom. As you enter, the head is to the right and the sculpted Corian sink and countertop are in front of you. The water mixer is a pull-out wand for showering. The two drop-down mirrored door lockers above the counter provide plenty of medicine cabinet and toiletries storage. There is a tip-out trash bin by the head and a curved door locker beneath the sink.  There is an overhead light and an overhead hatch for ventilation. 


Saloon: The starboard side of the saloon has a 6’6” long settee, with storage beneath it. Immediately behind it is cubbie storage the length of the seat. Above that are a pair of drop-front doored cabinets, with fiddled shelves above them. Between the two is a hullside portlight and a fiddled shelf. 


Across on port is a huge U-shaped dinette which can convert easily into a 7’4” x 54” berth by means of a counterweighted lift. There is also a drop-leaf that allows table space for the starboard settee. The table can easily seat six on port and several more with the leaf up. There is machinery located below the seating, with bottle storage at the aft end behind the seat cushions. Cubbie storage lines the hull as well as storage and a port mirroring the other side. Headroom is 6’5”.


Nav station: The nav station is located on starboard just aft of the settee. Forward facing, there are seat and back cushions for comfort. The large chart table easily accommodates a chart book and has good storage beneath the lid as well. Outboard of the table there is shelf and cubby storage, with your electrical, map light and electronics equipment above that. Headroom at the nav is 6’5”.


Galley: The L-shaped galley is at the base of the companionway on port. Counter space is nice and with the brightness in the area things are well illuminated. Beginning at the aft is the stove; there is drawer storage beneath it for pots and pans. Continuing to the right and forward there is the refrigerator and freezer. The refrigeration space is generous and has top and front access, which is really convenient. The freezer space is top access; both have gas assist lids. Behind the counter and stove spaces along the hull there are fiberglass storage bins. Overhead storage along the hull consists of a pair of lockers with drop-front doors; a fiddled shelf is between them with a Corian spice rack and a fixed port in the hullside. At the forward end the overhead wraps around back toward the sinks and is an open cubby space. Above all of the cabinets is fiddled shelf space.


The counter wraps back around toward centerline, with deep double stainless steel sinks, followed by countertop lift-ups for access to the waste bin and also a reversible cutting board surface. Beneath the sink there is a pair of double doors, with shelf storage inside. To the right of that are four drawers. Additionally, there is double-door shelf storage on the end cap of the cabinetry that can be shared with the nav station if desired.


Above the sink counter there is a teak overhead dish organizer. It is fiddled, has organizer pegs to keep things in place and has a light for over the sink and two stainless steel grab bars for safety while underway.


The entire galley/saloon/nav space is bright, inviting and spacious feeling to it. For lighting and ventilation, there are two hullside fixed ports, five fixed lights, two opening ports and four hatches. Additionally, there are five overhead lights and four reading lights. 


Aft Head: Entry to the aft head is on starboard from the saloon or from the aft master stateroom. The space is a unitized construction of fiberglass, making for easy maintenance. There is a sculpted Corian countertop with an integrally molded sink and a storage locker beneath it. Behind the sink is a molded bin for toiletries storage. Behind the head seat is a tip-out trash bin. Mirrored drop-front doors along the hull provide plenty of storage overhead. With 6’7” of headroom, one fixed port and two opening ports the space feels bright and spacious.


Aft stateroom: The aft owner’s stateroom can be entered from the galley on port or through the dual-entry head on starboard. Entry height is 6’7”, while the walk-thru (as with any aft cockpit master stateroom) is pretty good at 5’3”. As you enter from the galley there is a tall double door locker; inside one finds shelves on one side and a cedar-lined hanging locker on the other. Above is a fiddled shelf space.


The athwart oriented berth is 78” x 64” and has two cedar lined drawers beneath it as well as bulk storage under it. There is a padded headboard on the port side, with lots of storage space behind it. At the foot of the bed there are shelves with fiddles the full width of the bed, providing lots of storage there. There is another double doored locker there, with half cedar lined and half wet locker hanging space. A fiddled shelf space is above that. At the forward end is the aft access to the engine, with a Corian shelf and mirror above. The entire cabin is well ventilated and bright, with two fixed hullside ports each at the foot and head of the bed, two more around the cockpit well, four opening ports and two overhead hatches. Additionally, there are two overhead lights, two reading lights and several cabin fans.
