Description: This is a very nice boat that has seen very little use.
Please continue reading ONLY if you have been looking for a Hunter 216 and want own one.
I am the second owner. I have only sailed her a few times on Lake Monroe in Sanford and a few times off the west coast of Florida.
I always rinsed the trailer after launching in salt water and dunked it in a lake before storing the boat in the backyard (as well as running the motor for a few minutes while backed in fresh water)
The standing rigging is in great conditions, along with the overall appearance of the boat.
The running rigging is either new or good. No need to run to West Marine before heading out to the water
The main is still crisp. All battens are fine. It has a small round patch (sail sticker cloth on both sides) somewhere in the middle where is not subjected to heavy forces.
The sail cover is a recent purchase and is the original grey cover from North Sails ($350).
The roller furling jib sail has an upgraded diameter wire luff and has been, professionally cleaned, re-stiched, reinforced by the best in the business (www.sailcare.com). It feels great and is smooth going in and out of the drum ($350).
The jib also has a custom protective sock and dedicated halyard ($150).
To make life easier and enhance performance a boom kicker and an upgraded boom vang were added at the time of purchase ($400).
The rudder blade is in good condition with a little Marine-Tex in the usual spots ;-)
it comes with an original North Sails bag purchased last year ($90).
When I purchased the boat I noticed that the drum hosting the rudder blade was a bit loose and it did not rotate as smoothly as I wanted too.
I contacted HUNTER and received instructions on how to remove, clean, reinforce, and reinstall the whole system. Two day delicate project
Additional SS hook rails were added down below to hang anything from lines to fenders. You just have to have hooks!
No worries, all the work was done with the outmost care using West Marine SS hardware, proper tools and 5200 on any hole

Equipment: The motor is a 2006 Tohatsu 4-stroke 4HP and takes the boat to hull speed at moderate RPM even under unfavorable weather conditions.
The motor was cleaned and fine tuned by master mechanic Mike at O'Neill's Marina in St. Pete, FL. (October 2013). A new carburetor kit and a water separator were also installed as preventive maintenance.
This model does not charge a battery (not that the boat has one) has an internal tank as well as the option for an external tank.
I also have a 2003 Mercury 2-stroke 3.3HP (see photos) that I use for short day sails.
The Mercury is not included in the package, but it is available separately
The trailer is in good condition. All lights work. Tires look new... just a bit crinkly on the sidewalls. There is very little surface rust in the usual places. I changed all the bolts and nuts that looked "not so safe" with SS ones.
There are a few more, but cool little upgrades and storage bags for this and that.
I also spent a week sanding and painting the entire portion right under the cockpit with three coats of gray hi-grade epoxy paint. Now it can be used for storage without having many invisible tiny fiberglass splinters in your hands
It was the hell of job... one of those that you wish you never started, but you are happy when you are done.
All Hunter small boats up until 2011 develop small "line" cracks in the outer plastic shell covers the entire vessel (the core is fiberglass) that are not structural, but need to be addressed (Please google it). I tended to the ones I noticed and looked like they should be taken care of. It's easy to do. Hunter eventually switched back to full fiberglass in 2011 adding some 400lbs. to this model... you do the math what that does to performance.
We can discuss the fine details after you show real interest and come check it out
On a final note, she is a blast to sail even in light winds and the very large cockpit makes it a joy to share the experience with friends and family.
If you can read this post the 216 is still available for sale - i will remove ad when sold
