If you are looking for a small, lightweight boat for weekend jaunts, club racing and sipping cocktails in the cockpit at the marina or ina well sheltered bay, the Hunter is what you want. But for offshore work, they are simply not up to it.

The information here Mahina Expedition - Selecting A Boat for Offshore Cruising is wise and well thought out. It deals with all aspects of choice when looking at voyaging boats and even has a list of good smaller boats at the end which may prove invaluable as you seek your dream boat.
Thank you verry much. I will have to take it out of the list but it was a verry good looking inside/out boat. :P

The Hunter has great accommodation. To find similar size in a voyaging boat you will need to step up in length. Take a look at older Pearson and Southern Cross 35's. The Southern Cross in particular is a well built, strong and capable offshore cruiser and older, but well cared for boats will not cost you an arm and a leg.
Good luck.
