The Luhrs Marine Group, known also as Hunter Corporation created towards the mid Nineties an European section, based in Dorset, UK. The range of boats built there for the European market, were known as Hunter Legends to distinguish them from another British builder also called Hunter. The 356 model was designed in 2001 to replace the successful Hunter 340 that was getting old. It obtined an inmediate commercial success thanks to its roomy interior, superior to any other model of the moment and to the B&R rig (from Bergstrom-Ridder the two Swedish inventors of the ring in the Seventies) that higly simplifies the handling. This rig can do without a backstay thank to its aft-swept spreaders and reversed diagonal shrouds that bows the mast. Hunter was the builder worldwide that better tuned the possibilities of this rig. At the moment of the launch of this unit, in 2002, more than 10.000 boats so rigged were already sailing worldwide. This Hunter Legend 356 is in enviable maintenance conditions, having benefitted of only two caring owners. Her livability is amazing and it is enhanced by the cockpit cover that transform this place in a protected terrasse even in winter. Her handling, as said, is very easy and the boats performances are pleasant surprise, being far better of what we could theoretically expect. In fact, the British built Hunter Legend 356 offered also a full batten main-sail with huge roach that highly improved the up-wind performances and did not stressed at all the rig. Down-wind those same swept-aft spreaders prefer to avoid a round course. The Hunter Legend 356 is a very comfortable vessel and this unit enhances it with her perfect state of maintenance.
