This Hunter 450 is a very desirable Center Cockpit sailboat with attractive layout including a huge aft stateroom and private forward berth.  This H450 has been upgraded to give her better long term cruising ability with solar, wind, water maker, single side band, lots of spares and more.  Her sails include Seldon In-Mast furler and Harken roller furled head sails - including that on her unique cutter rig staysail which is unique to this model.  Outstanding layout for a cruising couple who wants to take the comforts of home with them.

A long bench settee with a center flip down table top for drinks and end cabinet with TV is on the port side. Opposite is an large U shaped settee that offers a variety of living options. The dining table can slide up the compression post to the ceiling out of the way when not in use. This opens the salon as a real living room. An upholstered bench provides to only additional seating, but also storage and serves as a cocktail table. Filler cushions can also turn the salon table area into additional guest accommodations. Fantastic use of space! Tall headroom with abundant opening hatches and ports.

The private guest quarters forward has a double pullman berth with bank of drawers underneath. Hanging lockers, cabinets and upholstered side seat are opposite. The guest head and shower is located in the V.

On the starboard side of the companionway leading aft is a large forward facing Navigation Desk. Multiple lockers perfect for tools and safety gear are located in the passageway going aft just opposite the excellent engine and generator access panels.

The owner's stateroom features a queen bed slightly offset to port with a curved settee and vanity desk to starboard. both sides have generous storage bins and hanging lockers. A real shower stall/tub is to port and the dual access head and sink is to starboard.

Exterior cockpit seating and cockpit table in the shaded cockpit, sun pads and corner seats make the outside extremely comfortable and usable.

All in all, a tremendous layout for long term cruising and living aboard.
