Above decks, you'll find a well designed and engineered boat. Molded-in non-skid on the deck allows your crew to move with ease and safety. The cockpit is large and contains pedestal steering with complete engine controls and a lighted compass. The cockpit seats contain lockers for convenient stowage of lines and other deck gear. You and your crew can spend many enjoyable hours at the helm of the Hunter 31.

Warren Luhrs and the Hunter Design Group go to great lengths to ensure reliability, dependability, endurance and economics in the Hunter 31.

The Hunter Design Group has in corporated a number of engineering improvements which has created a craft of greater reliability, dependability and enhanced performance. The Hunter 31 begins with a hull laid up by hand with pre-cut fiberglass to insure consistency.

After the hull is cured and thoroughly inspected, Hunter then bonded a full length internal frame and stringer system of unidirectional fiberglass directly to the hull to in crease its stiffness without adding un due weight. The chainplate is secured to this system and is then brought through the deck in one clean penetration, creating more interior space and minimizing deck clutter. The load is then distributed to the hull through the internal frame and stringer system.

This structural system allows Hunter to obtain the maximum utilization of the interior space belowdecks.

The exterior hull-to-deck joint is engineered to minimize leaks and act as a spray rail. A custom pre-bent toe rail extrusion is through bolted providing additional strength and protection. The stanchions are mounted outboard which allows for easier and safer movement about the side decks.

The headliner on the Hunter 31 is turned down at the sheer, then bonded to the hull to form a sheerline beam that stiffens the boat and acts as a wire chase. 

The 31 has the patented B&R rigging system with no babystay or running backstays-so you get better control and faster tacking. The swept back spreaders allow tighter sheeting angles of the headsails, and a smaller spar section reduces windage and interference with the leading edge of the mainsail.

The laminar flow section of the keel has been case for a more accurate, more efficient shape. And an aircraft-type fairing provides a sleeker interface between the hull and keel. Both the shoal and deep draft keels have sumps and recessed ears that distribute the load between the hull and internal frame. 

As the finishing touch in creating a more exciting sailboat, the Hunter Design Group has created the hull of the 31 for maximum speed under all conditions, with special emphasis on upwind performance.
