Once in a while one comes across a boat that has had the benefit of three years of TLC, upgrades, and repairs at an affordable sail-away price. Our Hunter 31 is that boat. I am providing the full and comprehensive detail on this boat so you have the benefit of learning what Santosha has experienced since we bought her in 2017.
We are a family of four and bought her to cruise the Columbia River. We have enjoyed many fine memories aboard Santosha, which means its all good” in Sanskrit. We bought her in a state of neglect, but we loved her racy lines, ample head room (we are both 62), loads of storage, and amenities on board. We carefully began the work of bringing her up to snuff.
Santosha is a sloop rigged, fin keel sailboat, equipped with a 16hp Yanmar auxiliary diesel, furling headsail, and mainsail with lazy jack system. Additionally the boat has a CNG galley and a hot-water heater driven by hot-water from the engine or shore power. All lines run aft to the cockpit and she is easily sailed single handed from the cockpit and is a pleasure to sail for the new or experienced sailor.
There’s definitely a big-boat feel once you go below on Santosha. Headroom is 6 feet 3 inches in the spacious saloon. Santoshas V-berth sleeps two adults. The head with sink and toilet is just outside the V-berth and fitted with a privacy door that doubles as a V-berth door as well. The overall layout is social, with a U-shaped galley to starboard that allows the cook to converse or otherwise take part in the goings on. The galley has a two-burner stove, sink and a deep fridge and small freezer. It is abutted by a dinette that seats four. The salon table drops down to form another double berth. The port side features a settee (single bunk if needed) and full navigation station with chart table and light. The aft cabin is roomy and generous for two adults with storage in the transom area too. Teak paneling warms the saloon and other bulkheads. Plentiful windows provide light and cross ventilation.
