The Hunter 306 offers a great combination of an easily handled sail plan with all lines run aft, spacious cockpit which is well protected from the weather and spacious living space below decks. The backstay less fractional rig has proven very capable and pemits the used of a mainsail with a larger than normal roach, providing improved performance and balancing for the sail plan. With the mainsheet cleverly mounted on the stainless steel arch and the winches mounted on the cabin top by the companionway the cockpit is left clear of obstructions when under sail.
