General condition and any additional information
Upon entering the 6-foot-10-inch headroom salon of the 2007 Hunter 41 DS and the light and airiness created by the raised deck. Just forward and to port of the steps is the L-shaped galley. Corian countertops (with an inset waste bin and, to protect the dinette, a clear backsplash with rounded edges) are surrounded by high, inward-curved fiddles, which do double duty as grab rails as you prepare meals and approach or descend the companionway. These ergonomic fiddles are found throughout the Hunter 41 DS along shelf edges over settees and in the cabins. The double sinks positioned diagonally in the angle of the L. Aft of them is a gimbaled two-burner propane stove and oven, with a microwave set above, and a stainless-steel front-loading fridge with an adjacent front loading freezer. The pantry, with shelves and a deep bin, is worthy of any small home, and theres in-sole storage for cans and jars. With two opening ports, a hatch, and proximity to the companionway, galley ventilation will be superb. Forward of the galley is the dinette; all three seats could serve as extra berths while on passage, and the table, with telescoping support, converts to a double berth. A vertical stainless-steel grabrail is conveniently located between the galley counter and the dinette.
