The Hunter 39 was designed as the successor to the 38, Hunter's breakthrough model that combined comfort, outstanding performance and easy handling. This new boat retains many of the positive characteristics of the 38, but makes major improvements in several key areas. Almost two feet longer, the deck profile, flush mounted hatches, ports and windows and hull shape are sleek and modern, and the new Glenn Henderson extended hull improves sailing performance. The U-shaped cockpit lounge seats the entire crew in comfort around a large drop-leaf table. The cockpit features twin wheels for the ultimate in comfort, visibility and control, stern rail seating and transom access from the roomy cockpit is wide and safe. All lines are led aft to the safety of the cockpit, the jib and double-ended mainsheet are all easily trimmed from the helm (great for single handing!) and the in-mast furling makes the sail handling easy.
Below, the Hunter 39 retains the popular two stateroom/one head layout, but several key enhancements improve function and appearance. In the galley, faux granite countertops give a luxurious custom feel. Handholds and storage are plentiful throughout the boat. Their extensive use of rich cherry woods has a luxurious feel and the beveled hardwood sole lends an opulent flair. The new nav station is roomier and larger ports in the common areas let in more natural light.
Our offering, “Plankton”, is a very nice example of these great boats. First introduced in 2009, “Plankton” is a 2010 and hull number 121- a good testament to the popularity of these boats, given a down economy. She has served her owners well, but they are now ready to move on to different adventures.

Forward stateroom: The forward stateroom features a generous 7’ long berth. There are two locker doors beneath the berth, with lots of space anda shelf in the back upper area. The hullsides are padded for sleeping comfort and have fiddled shelves along the length of the berth. There is a cedar lined hanging locker on starboard and another locker on port with shelves. Both lockers have fiddled shelves above them. Headroom in this space is 6’1”; there is a large overhead hatch, two overhead lights and two reading lights.
Saloon: Aft of the forwardstateroom, there is a 6’ long straight settee on port and a 7’ long U-shaped settee on starboard. There is storage below and behind both settees. Above and behind the port settee the hull is a single raised panel locker forward, cherry staving along the hull with a fixed light in the hullside and a fiddled shelf above. On starboard there is the same configuration, but with two lockers.
The large, bullnose-edged dinette table has a drop leaf on the port side for additional dining space when needed, however seating space is generous without it. The table can be lowered and with the insert cushion creates a comfortable 7’ x 57” x 43” double berth.
The entire space feels luxurious and bright with lots of natural light, in addition to the two overhead hatches, reading and overhead lighting throughout.
Nav station: The nav station is forward facing and on port. The curved seat is designed to keep you comfortable even when heeled and has storage beneath it. The chart table has storage inside it and can also double as an end table for the port settee. There is a storage locker along the hull nest to the seat and the neatly organized electrical panel is hinged for easy service.
Galley: The L-shaped galley is located on starboard at the base of the companionway. The combination of the black Corian® countertops and backsplash, polished stainless steel sinks, grab bars and accents, glass front locker doors and cherry finishes makes this one very elegant looking galley.
The thick bullnose counter running perpendicular to the hull separates the dinette and galley, with a backsplash to keep the galley things in the galley. A double polished sink has Corian® sink covers to make this all counter space and tidier when not in use. To the right of the sinks is a trash bin, also with a Corian® lid to keep things looking tidy. Beneath the counter is an upright refrigerator/freezer on the left and a large cabinet space directly beneath the sink.
Continuing around and along the hull, there is a wire rack pull out storage unit to the left of the stove, drop front storage for pots and pans beneath the stove and three drawers to the right of the stove. Above the counter along the hull, there are two sets of glass front doors. The forward-most encloses a dish drying rack with a light, drain and fan. The next set has open shelf space inside. Aft of that is a built in microwave. There is an overhead hatch and opening port in the galley to help keep things cool.
Aft stateroom: The master stateroom aft has dual entry- from the galley or head. Headroom at the entry spaces is 6’3”. The 7’8” x 58” wide berth is oriented athwart ship and has storage beneath the berth. At the foot of the bed on port there is a row of open storage cubbies with a large fiddled shelf the width of the berth, a pair of drawers and a cedar lined locker with shelving inside to the right of that.
At the head of the bed there is a changing seat with storage below it, an opening port in the hull and an overhead hatch, providing good ventilation and a way to look at the stars. There is a cedar lined hanging locker with a fiddled shelf above it by the entry from the galley. There are overhead lights at either entry to the cabin and a pair of reading lights at the head of the bed.
Head: There is entry into the head from the saloon as well as the master stateroom aft. Upon entering from the saloon, the bullnose Corian countertop has an oval polished stainless steel sink. Below the sink is a large locker with a molded fiberglass door. Above the counter is a nice sized medicine cabinet that has a drop-front mirror door.
To the left is entry into the separate shower/head area. A frosted bi-fold door provides privacy and keeps the sink area dry. There is a drop-down teak slatted shower seat if you choose to use it and a slide-bar mounted shower wand. Back of this space is the door to the master stateroom. The 6’5” headroom accommodates most folks. There is an overhead hatch, opening port and overhead lighting in these areas.
