2008 Hunter 170 located in New Jersey for sale

17' Hunter 170

New Jersey

Description: This was the boat my daughter learned on at the Ocean City Sailing Foundation http://ocsailingfoundation.org/, so it was the boat we had to buy! Unfortunately with my work schedule, I just never had the time to take it out this season. And my daughter gave up sailing for playing tennis... so the boat sits unused. I spent most of my free time on the boat working on upgrading the rigging.

If you look at the OCSF site, there are photo galleries of kids sailing... the larger sailboats with multiple people in it are the Hunter 170's or 18's (170 = 17', 18 obviously 18', and 140's - 14') I did a lot of research on boats before purchasing this one and liked the ease of use and the fact that it has no hull speed (the maximum speed a boat can go) because once it gets going, the sailboat actually planes across the top of the water instead of in it. Lots of fun.

I use a floating jetdock... so the Hunter 170 is out of the water when not sailing. The sails are almost brand new and I purchased a cover to keep them out of the sun (sail's worst enemy). In the winter the boat was stored at an indoor storage facility in Egg Harbor Twp, so it was well protected during the hurricane and has no storm damage (a major concern for current boat buyers.)

One of the nice things about this boat is that it has a mast float... a major concern when I bought the Hunter 170 since you don't want the boat to turtle (mast goes completely under the water). I also purchased all new lines and spare parts for the sailboat. It also comes with a 2 hp motor.

I'm selling the boat for $9,000 with the trailer, spare parts and new equipment...but we can negotiate. Pictures of the actual Hunter at http://2file.us/Hunter170.htm
