The 18 – Much More Than a Daysailer

Marlow Hunter 18 Sailboat

H18SpinnakerBowQtrRun2010LRThe Marlow-Hunter 18 is designed to serve a wide spectrum of sailors, from novices to salty veterans. Constructed of rugged, durable fiberglass, the Marlow-Hunter 18 opens up endless possibilities on the waters around you. The kids will learn to sail safely in the Marlow-Hunter 18 with its generous freeboard and ease of handling. Families can take daytrips in safety and comfort. Veteran sailors will appreciate the efficient hull design – below the waterline, a bow hollow and hard chine make for a slippery hull that delivers stability and performance even on light air days.
Several key features make the Marlow-Hunter 18 an ideal daysailer. A seven foot beam guarantees stability and provides a clean and clutter-free cockpit. With its large main and small jib, the rig can be sailed by beginners and provide loads of fun for the seasoned sailor. The kick-up centerboard and swing-up rudder make landing and beaching a breeze, and the canvas cuddy unsnaps for easy bow access.

The Marlow-Hunter 18 is easy to trailer, rig and launch, and will carry a crew of four. An optional spinnaker package will add even more performance. This is a fun, versatile boat for the family on the go, starting at $15,839 retail. However, by buying direct, big savings are currently available with our manufacturer’s discount.
