Seller's Description

With interior and cockpit space that rivals that of much larger boats, this Hunter 29.5 masthead sloop is a terrific all-around weekend escape pod.

Eliminating some of the usual interior features of other boats of the era, such as a chart table (the dining table will suffice) and cabin-dividing bulkheads, and including others rarely seen, such as the wrap-around seating, the interior is open, bright, airy and spacious.

The large beam aft combined with a high cockpit floor gives generous clearance over the aft berth, which is set across the boat, over seven feet wide and should easily accommodate the largest of couples.

Another benefit from this layout is a huge cockpit, rivaling that of much larger boats and including a molded in swim platform and external (legal) propane storage locker, and by using swept spreaders the need for a backstay has also been eliminated, so movement about the cockpit and boarding are virtually unrestricted.

The galley has a large ice box, stove and microwave, plenty of storage, the pressurized water system has a hot water heater, and the owner will include the portable air conditioner, which works very well, in the sale.

So, if you are looking for an up-to-date, clean, capable sailing vessel with plenty of room for the family and friends for a day or weekend, this might be just the ticket.

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.7 kn
Classic: 6.96 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

8.69 knots
Classic formula: 6.96 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
17.0
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.
16.95
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
35.7
<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

35.74
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
170.1
100-200: light

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
170.08
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
18.1
<20: lightweight racing boat

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
18.1
<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
2.2
>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
2.15
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
