Sails and Rigging
Hunter believes that sailing should be safe and easy for the entire family. The unique B&R rig on the Hunter 41 is matched with a powerful sail plan that puts the effort in the mainsail, with a smaller, easily tacked head sail.  Proper placement of the running rigging allows all operation from safety of the cockpit.  The arch keeps the traveler up and out of the way, keeping the decks clear of the usual clutter.
