From the first glance the wide open decks large cockpit and overall look and feel of this boat are pleasing. It’s well laid out and from the helm its great visibility and ease of moving forward on deck are well done.

The MH 37 is built in the US and the sibling of 66 different models that have gone before boasting the classic Hunter arch is there as well, perfect for a Bimini install. The layout allows an easy sail whether you are single handing or as a couple with controls, jib sheets, and halyards are all conveniently accessed from the cockpit or helm position. Her larger main and smaller headsail combination coupled with a hard chine in the hull shape does not compromise performance from functionality resulting in a strong and stable rig and stability under power.

The added benefit is more interior volume boasting a large galley with larger than one would expect Corian countertops and wonderful storage. The main salon is wide and open and has a convertible dinette, choice of cherry or teak interior, and the familiar convertible dinette. The spacious fore cabin has a queen size bed and en suite head with separate show stall.

The new hull and deck of the 37 follow the same design lines as the new Hunter 40 that was launched at the same show last year.

A galley almost identical in size to the Hunter 40, a forward facing nav station, an extremely large main salon area, and a very generous fore cabin arrangement.
