| 1999 Hunter 410
This well equipped and professionally maintained 1999 Hunter 410 is ready to sail around the world. The Hunter design utilizes the main as the larger sail. This makes it is easier for the cruising sailor to manage the trimming and setting than with a conventional rig with large genoa. In reefing situations it is more efficient to reef the main than furling the genoa.
