“Spinoza’s Revenge” has always been used in fresh water only and has been updated in recent years by her very active owners.  This boat was a perfect launching pad into sailboats, and they are now buying a bigger boat!

Hunter is well known for offering large accommodations in a smaller package at a great value price. Of all the 28-foot boats on the market, you’d be hard pressed to find one that offers with the 280’s interior volume along with a large cockpit with seating for 8! The Hunter stern rail seats offer guests a safe “out of the way” place to observe and feel comfortable while under way. The B&R rig with a classic mainsail offers spritely good performance due to the fin keel and higher aspect taller mast. Everything is led aft to the cockpit for the shorthanded crew. The interior offers amenities not found on larger boats including large aft berth, stand up head with shower, and tons of storage areas! The multiple hatches and portlights, all with screens, offers excellent ventilation below.
