Seller's Description

Thirsty Traveler was just detailed!

The engine is smooth, relatively quiet, and easily powers the boat to hull speed at about half throttle. She features a full roach, a full-batten mainsail, and a furling genoa. The main also has a lazy jacks system which makes it easy to take the main down or reef it with only one other person aboard. Hunter has made this boat easy to handle by a couple and single handling should be easy as well.

Above decks, the Hunter 336 has a large comfortable cockpit. It is nearly round and seats six to eight. It has been designed for comfort and ease of use with higher backrests, a built-in table off the pedestal, stern rail seats, and a walk-through transom for ease of boarding. The transom has two storage lockers, a stainless steel swim ladder with steps, a rub rail for protection for dinghy access, and a transom shower. A line locker in front of the companionway helps keep the cockpit neat underway. The short traveler mounted in front of the wheel doesnt give you a whole lot in the way of trim but it certainly is easy to reach the main sheet from the helm or cockpit.

The deck is cleared of most working lines or sheets by running the lines from the mast under a bridge deck and back to the cockpit. Most of the maintenance work above the decks is minimized by stainless steel handrails.

Below decks, this Hunter 336 has a light, airy look and feel. It is ideal for entertaining below with a fair amount of teak and ash accents. The cabin layout on Thirsty Traveler features an upgraded factory layout that offers an enclosed forward stateroom for family or friends.

Twin sinks are covered with cutting boards with a separate drain board. The icebox includes a hydraulic assist to keep it open while searching below. The built-in dish rack, glasses, and cup holders are all little features that bring smiles to the users.

The aft cabin offers an extra-wide queen-size berth, a hanging locker, and plenty of storage.

Equipment: Highlights include:

Autopilot Outboard Engine for a dinghy Diesel cabin heater

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.4 kn
Classic: 7.16 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

8.36 knots
Classic formula: 7.16 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
18.5
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
18.5
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
37.2
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

37.18
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
211.0
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
211.01
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
21.3
20-30: coastal cruiser

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
21.32
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.1
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.1
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
