The 18 – Much More Than a Daysailer

Marlow – Hunter 18

The Hunter 18 is designed to serve a wide spectrum of sailors, from novices to salty veterans. Constructed of rugged, durable fiberglass, the Hunter 18 opens up endless possibilities on the waters around you. The kids will learn to sail safely in the Hunter 18 with its generous freeboard and ease of handling. With a max capacity of four, families can take daytrips in safety and comfort. Veteran sailors will appreciate the efficient hull design – below the waterline, a bow hollow and hard chine make for a slippery hull that delivers stability and performance even on light air days.

Several key features make the Hunter 18 an ideal daysailer. A seven foot beam guarantees stability and provides a clean and clutter-free cockpit. With its large main and small jib, the rig can be sailed by beginners, and this setup also provides fun for the seasoned sailor. The kick-up centerboard and swing-up rudder make landing and beaching a breeze, and the canvas cuddy unsnaps for easy bow access.

The Hunter 18 is easy to trailer, rig and launch, and it will carry the entire crew. An optional spinnaker package will add even more performance. This is a fun, versatile boat for the family on the go!
