Hunter 45cc Centre cockpit

Agua Therapy is a 2006 Hunter 45cc fractional rigged centre cockpit sloop. She has had one owner from new, who took ownership in 2007.

As you look through this you will see she is no "ordinary Hunter"
Offered for sale at US $257,000

She is fully equipped for independent self sustaining short, or long term live aboard cruising, as her current owners have done over the past three years. She has a proven track record as an efficient Ocean passage maker taking her owners safely across the Atlantic from Europe to the Caribbean in January 2013 and cruising up and down the Caribbean island chain and East coast USA since then.

She is easily handled by a couple or, even single handed as all sail control lines are led into the cockpit where two electric winches do the hard work for the crew. There is no need to leave the safety of the cockpit unless rigging the cruising chute for light air sailing. Modern Raymarine electronics takes care of the navigation as the auto pilot steers you to your next port of call or island destination. Alternatively, the "Hydrovane" wind steering system can be used in place of the auto pilot to conserve electrical power and, has the added advantage of being totally independent of the on-board steering and rudder allowing it to be used as an emergency steering system in the unlikely event of a main steering failure.

Agua Therapy has the benefit of "in-boom" furling and, along with the electric winches makes raising, reefing and stowing the sail away easy, all from the safety of the cockpit. Close quarters manoeuvring is made easy by the use of the "Side Power" bow thruster.

The installed "Gori" folding propeller has the ability to be put into "overdrive" mode giving an increase of boat speed of approximately 1 to 1.5 kts for the same engine revolutions without overdrive. This improves both economy and efficiency of the propulsion system.

Electrical power on board is maintained and supported by two 140 Watt Solar panels through their dedicated charge controller, backed up by an 8 Kw generator and the 80 Ahr alternator on the engine. The 650 Ahr house battery bank is charged and controlled by two 40 Amp "Xantrex Truecharge II" battery chargers configured to deliver up to 80 Amps or, as a duel redundant pair in the event of one of the chargers failing.

Fresh water should never be a problem as the installed water maker can produce up to 9.5 gallons of water per hour, making cruising only dependent on personal endurance and provisions carried. To support that, a full size front opening refrigerator is installed, along with a half size front opening ready use freezer. A larger countertop opening freezer is installed for bulk frozen food. The electronic control for this unit allows the temperature to be controlled as a freezer, or a refrigerator.

Personal comfort when alongside or, when running the generator, can be provided by using either one of the two 1600 btu reverse cycle air conditioning units. One unit supplies the fwd cabin and the salon and, the other unit supplies the aft cabin and the salon.

Long distance communications is not an issue as this boat is equipped with an "ICOM" SSB radio for weather information, radio net and safety communications. Along with its "Pactor Modem" and subscription package (not included), email communication and weather information is available virtually anywhere in the world.

This sailing vessel has been regularly hauled for below the waterline inspection, cleaning and re-painting and was last hauled out in June 2015 for bottom scrub, rub down, anti fouling, hull polish and wax. As the cutlass bearing was showing very slight signs of wear, the opportunity was taken to replace it during this haul-out.

"Agua Therapy" has been maintained to the very highest of standards by its current, and only owner and is being presented for sale in an exceptional condition. She is fully equipped and ready to go at literally, the turn of a key, only requiring a new owner and provisions before heading to her next destination.

Having researched the global market for other Hunter 45 Center Cockpit boats, we can honestly say that "Agua Therapy" appears to be the most well equipped, and probably the best maintained and cleanest cruising boat in its class being offered for sale anywhere in the world today.

Hunter 45cc Centre cockpit, trade for Trawler

Edit: threads merged by Mods

We haven't thought about trading for a trawler before now. Our requirements are as follows.

Size wise 40-53 ft

Galley up.

Preferably stabilised

Good sea keeping a must.

Engines not too big

As we would like to "do the loop" something with a low air draft or a folding mast at least.

A 5ft maximum draft

year after 2000

Aft Master cabin or at least a centre line bed NOT IN THE FORWARD CABIN

Preferably no hands and knee fridges

Cash adjustments no problem

We are prepared to travel almost anywhere
