Hunter Legend 40 – Information

Hunter 40 Legend – Stamford, CT


The Hunter 40 is an American sailboat that was designed by Cortland Steck and first built in 1984.

The design was originally marketed by the manufacturer as the Hunter 40, but is now usually referred to as the Hunter 40-1 or the Hunter 40 Legend, to differentiate it from the unrelated 2012 Marlow-Hunter 40 design, which is sometimes called the Hunter 40-2.

The Hunter 40 is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a B&R rig masthead sloop rig, a raked stem, a reverse transom with a folding boarding ladder, an internally mounted spade-type rudder controlled by a wheel and a fixed fin keel.

The boat has a draft of 6.5 ft (2.0 m) with the standard keel and 5.0 ft (1.5 m) with the optional shoal draft keel.
