General condition and any additional information

Bella Mare is a very well equipped and popular design from Glenn Henderson and Hunter Marine. Options include Hunters Mariner Package, 75 Yanmar hp diesel, TracVision satellite TB, wind generator with controller, Fischer Panda 6kw genset, bow thruster, water maker, 2500 watt inverter, dinghy w/outboard

Beautiful, well cared for, she is currently slipped at Ft. Pierce Harbortown Marina. Also, very low hours for a 2008.

Hunters are roomy and bright to enjoy the beautiful tropical environments of Florida and Bahamas. You could use her for passages but our intent was for coastal and Caribbean She is light and sails easy especially even in light breezes. She is airy and open, particularly in the main saloon where 7 feet of headroom and ample natural light from the wraparound windshield set the tone. The queen bed in the aft cabin is new and more comfortable than our home bed.
