This Legend 40.5 was sailed out to Australia from the USA in late 2019 without issue. She has had all duties and taxes paid. Before departing the USA she had all systems and parts throughly checked including the rigging ultrasonically checked and passed. The current owner has sailed her up Australias east coast and lived aboard her for the past 18 months. He is now ready to sell her as international borders are opening up. She is a lovely vessel. Well maintained and cared for with many updates. A viewing is essential. A recent survey (2/2020) is available to serious buyers. See the original Hunter Yachts colour brochure attached.

Famed yacht designer Robert Perry reviewed the 40.5 in 2000. Here is some of what he wrote,

"The Hunter Legend shows a lot of influence from French production models, but has a stamp of distinction that is purely Hunter's. Like Catalina, Hunter uses an in-house design group. The Hunter's deck has nice, crisp lines. I think that hard, sharp lines should be used to draw out the shapes and add definition to the look; and the Hunter Legend 40.5 does this very well. The potpourri of window shapes and orientations is strictly Euro in origin and creates some aesthetic excitement. The moderately high freeboard of this design goes well with the short ends.

Hunter offers two layouts for the 40.5. The owner's version just has one berth, oriented athwartships, aft with more available cabin sole. The galley is well laid out with the sinks on the forward leg and plenty of space for a big, two-compartment icebox. The angled bulkheads optimize the dinette arrangement and the forward stateroom has its own head.

This hull shape once again pushes the beam toward the stern for additional interior volume. The deck plan shows a fine bow with beam max well aft. The hull profile uses about all the waterline it can squeeze out of 40 feet with very short ends. Note that bow knuckle is just above the cutwater. The keel is a bulb cumwing type for shoal draft and stability. The rudder is a low-aspect-ratio semi-balanced spade.

Hunter has used the sweptback spreader rig for a long time. This has the benefit of providing a rigid spar without fore and aft lowers or runners.

With a SA/D ratio of 16.79, the Legend is moderately rigged. The small foretriangle will reward the owner with small jibs and easy tacking. The big main has full-length battens and enough roach to overlap the backstay.

The cockpit uses a T-shape for wheel clearance. There is easy access down to the large swim platform, with lockers port and starboard. The backstay is split to avoid interfering with access to the swim step.

I find the new Legend an exciting styling package. "
