50' Hunter 50 2014
The Marlow-Hunter 50 is designed for entertaining around home, coastal sailing, or passage making - fundamentally this Hunter can do just about anything and do it well. Her rig is designed to be easy to handle single-handed if need be with various options allowing consumers to match the equipment installed to the application. Because of the lavish use of dark-stained wood below, and due to her many traditional details incorporated there, she has strong appeal to the more traditional sailors. Consumers who are looking for a sailboat that looks like it was fitted out at IKEA need not apply.
The owner has found the beach house of his dreams and is ready to move on from Promise. Make an offer today for this amazing, comfortable, blue water cruiser.
Down below there is a feeling of roominess with 6’ 9” headroom despite the sleek profile outside. The saloon is finished with ash slats along the hull, teak cabinetry and a low maintenance Everwear “teak and holly” sole. A U-shaped settee with a solid teak table on starboard converts to a double berth. A straight settee is to port just ahead of the forward facing nav station. There is plenty of room for Raymarine E-Series multi-function displays and the chart table lifts for storage below. The electronics display can also be output to the saloon’s 23-inch flat-screen monitor mounted on a bulkhead for quick reference from just about anywhere.
Across on starboard is a nicely sized, L-shaped galley that has an additional counter by the companionway which encloses the galley somewhat and protects the cook underway. It features a 3.9 cubic foot refrigerator and a 1.4 cubic foot freezer. Twin sinks, a three burner stove, a combination microwave and coffeepot unit, and lots of Corian countertop space with stainless fiddles make for an efficient galley. Hunter’s signature dish drying rack that has a fan and bulb to dry the dishes right in their storage space is included.
Aft are two twin-berth private guest cabins with a shared head and separate shower. The port side cabin runs athwartships while the starboard cabin is fore and aft. The master stateroom is forward with an island queen berth and an innerspring mattress. Two large, cedar lined hanging lockers and drawers below the bed provide ample storage. A small vanity area with a mirror and a padded seat fill out the extra spaces between the split head, with a shower stall on port and a head and sink on starboard. A four cabin version is available that does away with the master stateroom and adds two cabins in the forepeak.

The Hunter 50AC hull is balsa sandwich topsides, with solid FRP below the waterline and two layers of Kevlar in the forward sections for impact resistance. The deck gel-coat is Maxguard that is said to be more flexible than most finishes and also highly UV-resistant. The interior gel-coat is MicroBan, incorporating an anti-bacterial agent and the outer hull skin is Ashland AME-5000 modified epoxy, for maximum osmosis resistance.
Sporting wide decks with few tripping hazards or elevation changes. A watertight bulkhead backs up the sail locker which is just aft of the deep, divided anchor locker, and the whole bow section is Kevlar reinforced for extra strength in case of a collision.

Twin leather covered wheels afford good visibility forward for sailing or docking. Two sheet winches on the coaming on either side are within easy reach of each helm and there are two additional halyard winches and rope clutches on the cabin top. All the lines are led aft and Hunter’s trademark arch with a double-ended mainsheet makes for convenient end-boom sheeting. Large lockers under the cockpit seats and also aft in two transom compartments make for excellent garage storage. A Corian topped centerline table holds cool drinks and also provides a place to mount instruments which are visible from either helm.
